What if we told you that one simple trick could save you thousands of dollars and provide you with peace of mind worth far more? We will explain why you shouldn’t wait until fall to have your gutters cleaned.
Each year, we get calls from customers, always late in the fall, whose gutters are starting to sag or come loose due to the excess weight from leaves and debris clogging the system.
A sagging gutter is not just an eyesore; it’s a liability. And home maintenance matters.
A little oversight on your part can lead to thousands in unexpected and potentially costly repairs.
How to Keep Your Home and Your Gutters Safe
A clean gutter system is a functional, valuable gutter system. Furthermore, even a small amount of debris concealed in your gutter system is a problem. You shouldn’t wait until fall to have your gutters cleaned. The reason for this is simple.
Consider an avalanche. It starts with a falling rock. And a small problem uphill causes real havoc downhill.
This analogy is valid for your gutters.
For example, imagine your gutters are already one-third full before fall leaves begin to accumulate. At this point, you may not be able to see this amount of debris from the ground level. But this hidden debris is the small problem uphill, which causes real havoc downhill.
All of this debris compounds the stress your gutters put on the sides of your home. The fascia board upon which gutters attach is not rated to hold the extra weight of leaves, sticks, and muck that collects in your gutters over time.
Don’t Wait Until Fall and Why Regular Gutter Maintenence is Like an Insurance Plan
Your home’s soffits and fascia anchor maintained gutter systems and can support a minimal amount of debris.
When you don’t get your gutters cleaned regularly, you’re likely to rack up incremental damage over time. This is why you shouldn’t wait until fall to have your gutters cleaned.
Gutters packed with debris can lead to problems like cracked and rotting fascia and soffits, which can put your home’s exterior at risk as well as leave your foundation open to bombardment from water. This overload of water can lead to costly damage and basement flooding.
Leaky, clogged or damaged gutters can also damage your home’s exterior paint, and repainting your house can cost thousands in unnecessary costs.
Compare all this trouble to the relatively small cost of protecting your gutters under regular cleanings with Gutter King Wichita.
