Clogged gutters pose a real threat to the health of your home. Read on to find out why!

Answer:  To protect your biggest investment!

Cleaning your gutters is one of the most important things you can do to protect and maintain your home. When gutters are full of leaves and debris they become heavy and get pulled off pitch. This can result in damage to the fascia and soffit areas. As water overflows, it will pour over the gutter, leaking into your foundation, or the water will leak behind the gutter, rot the fascia board, and possibly travel into your home.

Most homeowners get their gutters cleaned only when they notice a problem with their gutters. By that time, your home may have already suffered water damage. Gutters actually provide protection against the harmful effect that the water has on the foundation of your home.

Remember, a gutter that is empty weighs around 20 pounds. That same gutter, full of debris and water, can weigh up to 300 pounds!

Maintain and protect your home simply and easily, by regularly cleaning and flushing your gutters.

How Gutters Protect Your Home

They are part of the rainwater drainage system that helps prevent:

    • water penetration into the foundation
    • deck and foundation damage
    • termite, mosquito and rodent infestations
    • landscape destruction
    • mold growth
