While gutters are considered a house “necessity”, Guarded Gutters understands how homeowners overlook gutters. Guarded Gutters’ team knows what to look for when inspecting your gutters, but do you? As a fully licensed and insured team of experts, we will always focus on the health of your gutters, with full transparency for our customers. Today, we’re going over the three misconceptions and myths of home gutter health.
You may think the best way to maintain the health of your gutters is by cleaning debris twice a year. While this is helpful, gutter debris may not be the only issue causing clogged gutters. And if left unchecked, your roof may suffer from rot, mildew, ice dams, and more.
Things to look out for:
- Worn seams and joints
- Clogs and debris buildup
- Loose hardware
- Blocked downspouts and leaks
No Trees Near Me!
Debris is possibly the largest issue with gutters. Even if you think your gutters are safe from trees, be sure to check your gutters at least twice a year. You might not realize just how far clutter and debris can travel during a random spring storm, and this debris is bound to end up in your gutters. For this reason, it’s always beneficial to have a professional clean and wash out all of your gutters throughout the warmer months.
Covered Doesn’t Mean Clean
Of course, we can’t stress this enough. We always recommend our guarded gutters for the longevity of your gutters and your home! Guarded gutters significantly reduce the amount of debris that can clog your gutters, and this saves you time and money! However, that doesn’t mean they’re “out of sight, out of mind”–in fact, having your guarded gutters serviced throughout the year will save you stress and money. Guarded gutters protect your gutters from considerable damage throughout the year. However, smaller bits of debris like twigs and dirt is inevitable. If this is left unchecked, you might have a more significant gutter issue years down the road.
