We can think of other things to do on the weekend that would be more fun than cleaning out your gutters, but it’s an important part of owning a home nonetheless. A number of problems can occur from clogs and debris build up, so don’t procrastinate or you will probably be looking at excess damages that require costly roofing services. If climbing up on ladders to scoop out dirty, mucky, debris from your gutters is not your thing, you are not alone! Many home and business owners call a Norman Gutter Cleaning contractor to have it serviced professionally for them. When water cannot properly divert away from your home, it can cause serious damage to many areas such as your roof, fascia, soffit, and foundation. There are several reasons to be proactive with gutter maintenance and here are four we think you should consider.
If and when your gutter system becomes clogged to the degree where water is spilling over and splashing back, you can end up with rot to your roofing materials and sheathing.
The boards that run behind your gutters is called fascia. Overflowing water from improper drainage can harm this important component that is responsible for holding the weight of your gutters. Too much stress from water weight can tear your gutters right off of your home while damaging the fascia at the same time!
When water is spilling over from your gutters and pools up against the foundation of your home, it will expand when the temperatures drop below freezing and produce cracks. A crack that is running horizontally is typically the most serious because it is usually indicating serious structural damage.
If you noticed an abnormal amount of snow or ice building up on the edges of your gutters and roof or large icicle formations on the eves then you have ice dams which spell trouble. When water is unable to drain properly, it will freeze to your gutter and form what’s called an ice dam. When an ice dam is left unattended to, it can rip a gutter off completely, saturate your shingles and the sheathing underneath, and end up leaking water into your home.
