Gutters are your home’s first line of defense against bad weather. This means they should be in good working order at all times to keep you and your family safe. If you live in an area with frequent storms or bad winters, it’s more important than ever to make sure your gutters are in good condition. Here’s why gutter protection is so important.
Gutter Repair Is Important for Gutter Protection
Protecting your home from roof damage is important. Routine gutter repairs ensure that your gutters don’t become a liability. Not only do old or damaged gutters look unsightly, but they can also cause leaks and drainage issues. If you have an old gutter system in your house, call us for a consultation today. We’ll assess how old your system is, inspect it for damage, and let you know what improvements to make. Whether it’s time to install new gutters or repair old ones, we’ll give you an estimate that will reflect our commitment to quality workmanship at fair prices.
Reduce Cleanup Efforts
The key reason to invest in gutter protection is to reduce cleanup efforts. By keeping your gutters clean, you’ll avoid having to manually remove leaves, dirt and other debris. That means less effort for you and more time for outdoor activities. Over time, leaves can pile up high enough that they obstruct rainwater from flowing into your downspouts. This, then, can cause water damage to your home or building. Get comprehensive gutter protection to help you avoid costly repair costs in the future by using long-lasting materials with maximum protection capabilities—such as LeaFree Gutter Protection.
Keep Rainwater Clean
Prevention is always better than repair, especially when it comes to your basement. Did you know that over 80% of all basements are susceptible to leaks? Leaky gutters can lead to water pooling on your roof. This then trickles into your foundation and down into your basement. Sometimes these leaks are minor, but sometimes they’re not—and if left unchecked, can lead to thousands of dollars in damage.
Avoid Basement Flooding
Having your gutters cleaned regularly is crucial to avoid basement flooding. When your gutters are clogged, water will not drain out of them quickly enough to keep pace with heavy rains. If left in disrepair, you could see your gutters overflowing and water pouring down your walls or pooling in your basement. Cleaning them is an important step in making sure that doesn’t happen, but there are other steps you can take as well.
If you’re concerned about basement flooding due to debris in your gutters, consider protective gutter covers that fit over them. Another great measure you can take is to seal off any holes that have developed in your gutters so they won’t be letting water through during storms either.
