The importance of your home’s gutters is often overlooked, but its primary purpose is to keep water away from your home’s foundation. If your gutters are clogged or blocked, they won’t be able to perform this task as well as they should. And because we’re in the middle of Fall, it’s more important than ever to keep them free from debris. Your gutters and downspouts need to be clear if you want them to keep water from damaging your home. If they’re clogged, rainwater can overflow and get into your foundation. Clogged gutters can also cause problems with your roof, because they can cause a collapse if they get too full. This will cause damage to roof shingles and other parts of your home’s exterior. To avoid these problems, you should clean your gutters at least twice a year (with Fall being the perfect time to do at least one of them).
