WHAT EXACTLY DO GUTTERS DO FOR YOUR HOME?
Gutters are vitally important to your drainage system. When there is rainfall, no matter how light, moisture can get stuck underneath the shingles on your roof. Excess moisture buildup can loosen shingles, causing them to easily fall or break off. The more roofing materials that are exposed to the open air, the higher the chances of your roof springing a leak. This moisture also has the ability to soak into your roofing materials, and eventually into your home. When moisture is trapped in your roof, walls or ceiling, it can be a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which will eventually be breathed in by you and your loved ones.
Additionally, gutters help to keep your home’s siding from taking the brunt of all of the runoff water and debris from your roof. This prevents holes from forming in the sides of your house.
WHAT CAN GO WRONG WITH GUTTERS?
If you go too long neglecting your gutters, there are a few things that can go wrong with them. If they have sustained too much damage from harsh weather, they can form holes or fall off of your home. When gutters are not in place, they cannot do their important job of removing excess rainwater from your roof. Another thing that can cause problems with your gutters is if they are not cleaned frequently and thoroughly. Especially in the winter, debris from loose roofing material and surrounding trees will fall into your gutters and cause clogs to form. Clogged gutters are poorly performing gutters. Buildups of debris prevent water from flowing, which can cause your gutters to burst and create water damage to your roof. It is very important to have your gutters inspected and cleaned, and Roof Experts specializes in just that.
