Why you need to keep those gutters clear
A flooded gutter can cause your roof to leak, and it sometimes forces you to replace the roof altogether. It also encourages mould infiltration inside your home. If water isn’t effectively carried away from your foundation by downspouts, it may eventually damage the foundation, cause wood siding to rot, or flood your basement.
For these reasons, scheduling regular gutter inspections is a bit like brushing your teeth. It’s a bit annoying, and it’s tempting not to think about it – but once you’re in the habit of doing it, it’ll save you from hefty repair bills and anxiety in the long run.
