Why You Need Gutters
Gutters are a critical component of your homes roofing and water diversion system. They are a humble part of your house, but they have a very important job. Moving water and debris from your roof, through the gutter, and down the downspouts. Gutter and downspout maintenance is essential to insure protection for your home. It is important to keep debris free and clear from inside the gutter and downspouts. Extended exposure of leaves, branches, and shingle granules can cause the breakdown of the paint, metal, and sealant causing leaks. Added weight of debris and water can loosen fasteners, pull fascia away, and cause them to sag and fall.
