Unfortunately, most people don’t think about their gutters until a problem has already occurred. However, with a little bit of maintenance and ingenuity, your gutters can be easily maintained either by yourself or a licensed professional.
Gutters prevent rainwater from seeping into and damaging your roof, walls, landscape, and foundation. Regular cleaning and maintenance of your roof and gutters are crucial to maintaining your home for many years to come. If gutters are not cleaned regularly, the leaves and debris that fall in will get clogged up with rainwater, and if the gutter is clogged, it can lead to cracks in your roof. This will ultimately lead to a domino effect where cracks in your roof lead to cracks in your ceiling and then leaks in the interior of your home.
Not taking proper care of your gutters can not only lead to breaks in your gutters but more costly roof repairs. That’s why it’s best to call on a professional to make sure your gutters are cleaned and maintained without causing any danger to yourself. Here at K&B Gutters, our technicians have many years of experience and will maintain or install new gutters in your Palm City home at an affordable price. We also offer seamless gutters that will alleviate debris and water clogs.
Why is it So Important to Clean Your Gutters Regularly?
- Damage to your Foundation
At certain times of the year, Palm City gets a lot of rain and tropical storm activity, not to mention the storms brewing during hurricane season. You don’t want all of that water pooling in your gutters and stagnating for any length of time. Stagnating water can cause damage to your home’s foundation as well as the roof.
- Gutter Damage
Clogged debris and leaves that pool in your gutters may cause damage to your gutters themselves. Palm leaves, dirt, and other debris can corrode the aluminum that most gutters are made from. Seamless gutters are easier to maintain than traditional aluminum gutters because they are installed in one piece, which means the rain and other elements won’t cause them to break as easily.
- Fascia Board Rot
A fascia board is the long straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. It supports the roofline of your home and essentially holds the gutter in place giving it support. When your gutter is blocked, it causes water to overflow, leading the fascia board to eventually rot. This may also create an access point for pests and rodents to enter your attic.
- Pest Problems
Proper cleaning and maintenance of your gutters will deter pests, rodents, mosquitos, or even termites from making your gutters their cozy new home. Rodents and insects will also take advantage of any breakage or cracks in your gutter to find a convenient way into your home.
