Why Do I Need to Clean My Gutters?
Gutters are designed to direct the flow of water away from your home, helping prevent many problems including:
- Cracked foundations and sidewalks: water is very damaging even to cement, causing cracks in your foundation walls and sidewalks
- Flooded basements: clogged gutters this is the number one reason many homeowners experience flooded basements. This is because when water has nowhere to go, it will find a path with the least amount of resistance — which is typically in your siding and soffits
- Flooded landscaping: when water isn’t provided a direct path, it will just flow off your roof, leaving puddles around the perimeter
- Wood rot on your roof: when your gutters are clogged, moisture will become trapped on your roof, causing it to rot over time
- Pests: many pests like mosquitoes breed in standing water, and others like termites and wasps are attracted to standing water. They’ll live inside your gutters and gain access into your home
How Often Do I Need to Clean My Gutters?
We recommend you clean your gutters once or twice a year. However, if you have a lot of trees on your property, you may find you need to clean your gutters more often. A great opportunity for gutter cleaning is during the fall right before the wet winter hits. Keeping your gutters clear will not only help water to drain correctly, but it also prevents ice accumulation, which could cause major damage to your house.
If you have gutter guards, 90% of the clogging issues will be taken care of but they will still need to be cleaned every few years as part of maintenance.
Maintaining and taking care of your gutters can seem daunting, but IBEX Roof is here to help take the pressure off. Whether you need your gutters cleaned or new gutters installed, we’re here to make sure your home is well-protected.
