LOOKING FOR A DEPENDABLE AND PROFESSIONAL GUTTER CLEANING SERVICE PROVIDER IN BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC?
Why Do I Need To Clean My Gutters?
Gutters are designed to collect rainwater from the roof and carry it away from the foundation of the home through downspouts. … To summarize: A routine cleaning of your gutters can prevent damage to your roof, exterior, and foundation, saving you thousands in possible repair costs.
We all understand that having your rain gutters cleared out is basic roof maintenance. However, many times, we don’t fully understand why they have to be cleaned out and how often this task should be done.
The Purpose Of Seamless Gutters
Gutters are not in place just to protect you from the rain. Seamless gutters serve an extremely valuable service. When we have a storm, the rain hits your roof, and then it needs a place to safely land. This is where seamless gutters come into play. They act as a funnel to send the rain to a specific place and then gradually release the water to the ground.
By transporting the water away from the roofline, gutters protect the wood beneath the edges of your shingles, the wood under the eaves of your house (fascia) and it safeguards your siding as well. In addition, gutters are there to prevent top-soil erosion of the landscaping at the base of your home. When water is allowed to pool at the base of your home it can cause foundation breaking and other costly repairs.
Simply put, gutters are in place to save you, the homeowner, cash!
What Gets Inside Your Gutters
For starters, leaves will accumulate in your gutters. But not simply leaves, disintegrating leaves that have combined with dust and debris and turned into a soaked muddy mess. You will find twigs, pine needles (especially here in North Carolina), branches, and other “tree matter.” If it has been a while between cleanings, you may find weeds that have grown in the rain gutters. If you have asphalt shingles you will likewise get a good little bit of particles from them. Little tough pellets of shingles come off with the rain and find a nice place to lodge in your rain gutters.
With all this trash, you can see why it’s so simple for them to become blocked.
