Rain gutters are a critical component to a home or commercial building’s roofing system. Paying attention to when you need gutter repair, gutter cleaning or gutter installation is important to protecting your investment long term.
Why Gutters Are Important
Gutters act as troughs to channel rainwater that has run off the roof to downspouts that can carry the water away from a building’s doors, windows, foundation and siding.
Open gutters are a common type of gutter requiring regular cleaning. That’s because they trap leaves and other debris that can hinder the gutters from functioning properly.
Also, a gutter that is full of debris may create a fire hazard when conditions are dry. During heavy rain periods, gutters and downspouts that are not free of leaves and debris can cause rainwater to overflow, which could result in damage to your home or business’s foundation, basement or landscaping.
What Causes Gutter Problems
If you are concerned about your gutters and downspouts, assess whether your property has one or more of the following problems, which are some of the most common causes of gutter damage:
• Ice formation
• Insect infestations
• Split seams on non-seamless gutters
• Storm and tree damage
