Clogged Gutters can cause major problems to your home.

Gutters are installed to carry water off of your roof to a designated area on your property.

When working properly gutters are very effective at doing their job. If a gutter gets clogged up by shingle grit, leaves, dirt, etc. it can stop or slow the drainage off your roof, causing more damage than you may know.

Clogged gutters can rot fascia boards, therefore making it easier for water to enter the house to cause wall and ceiling damage.

Clogged gutters have a tendency to become over-weighted with slow moving water, soiled dirt, leaves, and ice (in the winter months).

This not only stresses the gutters but it puts even more stress on fascia boards and soffits.

In severe cases the gutter can break free from the house and potentially falling and hitting someone.

Bottom line clean your gutters at least twice per year and save yourself big headaches later down the road.
