The Importance of Cleaning Clogged Gutters

Table of Contents

We all know the importance of taking care of the outside of our home, but when we say this roofing and siding are what come to mind. Many people forget that the gutters on your home are just as important as the roof over your head and that cleaning your gutters can help to prevent a lot of damages to your home, saving you lots of time and money. 663 Exteriors takes care of our customers and wants each of you to have your dream home, but we understand that a lot of knowledge and work goes into it. Read below to find out why it is so important to clean and replace your gutters.

If you have clogged gutters they can damage a lot, especially the roof on your home. This is because when gutters are clogged, it stops the proper flow of water and causes your gutters to overflow. This water can eventually damage your roof if left for too long, and require repairs and possibly a whole new roofing system, which can get pretty expensive.

Not only will clogged gutters cause overflow but they can also harbor pests. There are lots of little animals that love to make their houses in the clogged gutters of your home. While this may not seem like that big of a deal, it is. These critters are usually pests and rodents who can possibly carry diseases, making it a health hazard for you and your family. Cleaning the gutters regularly will help to get rid of any pests or rodents that are causing you these issues.

Lastly, you should know that clogged and broken gutters decrease the value of your home, but they can also lead to the foundation of your home cracking if nothing is done with them. This is because your gutters are made to collect the rain water and route it to a safe spot that will not do any harm to your home. If your gutters are clogged, the rain can overflow like before, causing the water to drip and flow too close to the foundation of your home causing it to corrode, and compromise it’s stability.

There are many other possibilities when it comes to the damages clogged gutters can cause for your home. This is why it is so important to keep up with them, and when you notice something wrong, to take care of it right away.
