Your gutter system is a very important component of your roofing system. It helps move the water off of the roof and to an area away from the home so that water damage to your foundation is prevented. Gutter systems also help move debris from your roofs such as leaves, pine needles and similar items so that the roof stays clean.
Your gutter system should be cleaned at least twice a year so that they perform to their capacity. At the time of cleaning, your gutters should also be checked to see if they need any type of repairs. Keeping your gutters repaired helps prevent leaks from occurring in other areas of your home because roof water has a controlled flow.
Cleaning your gutter system is never a pleasant experience and can actually be dangerous if you are not accustomed to working in the air on a ladder. Gutters can become filled with debris from your roof and are the perfect place for mold, mildew and algae to grow. When you clean your gutters you must wear gloves to protect yourself from direct contact with these materials.
Once all of the debris is removed from the gutter system and the downspouts have been freed of any debris, the system should then be flushed to keep it clean. It is during this process that leaks and other problems can be detected. Gutter systems can spring leaks or crack over time from ice and debris build up as well as their age.
Repairing gutters is an essential preventative maintenance that should be done twice a year. Your gutter system helps your roof protect your home from water and weather damage. Having a properly working gutter system can make a significant difference in the types and costs of repairs you have to do to your home in the future.
