Roof Maintenance


The Importance of Maintaining Your Gutter System

Every homeowner loves when their roof is visually pleasing and functioning optimally, but are you doing the work required to achieve this? In this post we’ll look at the importance of properly maintaining your roof’s gutters, so you can reap the benefits of a healthy gutter system!

Keeps Pests Away

When your gutters are clogged with leaves, twigs and other debris, they make a much more appealing nesting site for all kinds of critters. So, not only does the initial debris impede your gutter, but having a bird’s nest in it will only worsen the situation.

Prevents Damage to Brackets

Another serious problem with clogged gutters is their weight. When your gutters become overloaded, they put too much pressure on the brackets holding them to your roof. This causes the brackets to bend or even break under the weight.

Averts Overwatering of Garden Beds

Do you have a garden bed at the front of your house? Well, when your gutters are so clogged any rainwater spills over, this leads to plants being watered excessively. This can be just as harmful as not being watered at all.
