Professional Gutters & Metal Work For Your Property
As you work to maintain your roof, you can’t underestimate the importance of its gutters. Indeed, it might surprise you to find that your gutters are important not only for your roof but also for your home as a whole!
Yes, that’s right: Your gutters, those networks of tubelike structures that cover the perimeter of your home, are QUITE necessary for maintaining a safe and -- yes -- STURDY home.
Just what do we mean when we say “sturdy” home? Simple:
Damaged Gutters Can Lead To Structural Issues
One of the most damaging elements that can affect your home is water. After all, if water works its way into your foundation, that foundation could begin to wear down. Over time, it could experience cracks, fissures, and the like, resulting in structural issues for your home.
Thus, if your gutters become damaged, your home as a whole could become damaged -- a serious problem indeed! This means that the moment you notice signs of gutter issues . . .
- Bowing areas
- Missing sections
. . . you need to call on an experienced gutter-repair expert to get that gutter repaired ASAP!
Many Things Can Lead To Gutter Damage
In your endeavor to keep your gutters strong and reliable, you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the many things that can result in damages to your gutters:
While not “damage,” per se, leaf buildup can still cause water to pool up around the base of your home, damaging the foundation. Be vigilant during the leafy months, and make sure your gutters aren’t becoming clogged.
Far more damaging is the weather. After a particularly harsh windstorm or hailstorm, your gutters could wind up ripped completely from your home, thus providing NO protection for your home’s foundation when the rain kicks up.
Not all gutter issues are as scary as a heavy storm. Sometimes, they’re quite cute, in fact: squirrels, birdies, and the like. Of course, as cute as these critters might be, the damage they can cause for your gutters is anything BUT cute as they chew and nest in it, causing holes and clogs.
