Why Gutter Maintenance Is Important For Your Oklahoma Home

13 July 2020

Gutter Maintenance Is Important

Summertime is perfect for grilling out, hanging out with family and friends, and spending your days lounging in the pool. What may not allow you to enjoy those summertime activities is gutter maintenance. Leaving your gutters filled with debris can cause quite a few problems for your home.

 

 

Clogged Gutters = Serious Issues

Leaving your gutters clogged can cause serious issues to your home. Your gutters are the exterior’s first line of defense against the elements. Without proper gutters, you are letting the exterior of your home vulnerable to moisture damage.

  • Overflowing Rainwater: Leaves and other kinds of debris that get caught in your gutters may prevent rainwater from flowing to the downspouts, causing water to spill onto your siding or seep into your home’s foundation. If rainwater can’t exit through the downspouts, the water may back up into your roof and damage your fascia board.
  • Pest Infestations: If you end up leaving the debris in your gutters for some time, it may attract pests. These pests burrow into moisture-damaged parts of your exterior to build their nests.
  • Leaking & Sagging Gutters: Gutters that are leaking or starting to sag can cause serious issues to your siding, foundation, and landscape. With sagging gutters, the water won’t channel effectively.
  • Gutter Maintenance & Protection: Finding the right protection or gutter maintenance is important for your home. Constantly looking for gutter maintenance can be stressful. It is also important to do your research before choosing a gutter protection system.
