Why Leaves Are A Problem For Gutters

fall gutter cleaning

The wonderful weather of fall is finally here in many parts of the country. That morning snap in the air, cooler temperatures, and hot cocoa are things to look forward to.

You are probably not looking forward to raking leaves though. Lots of raking. Lots of leaves. Lots more raking.

But even with all that raking you’re only getting the leaves on the ground. What about those leaves that are on the roof and in your gutters?

Why Leaves In Your Gutters Are Such A Problem

Your home is your responsibility, right or wrong, good or bad. You have to maintain your home to keep it functioning correctly, keep it enjoyable for your family, and keep it’s value intact. Things like gutter cleaning just go along with owning a home. Your gutters are designed to carry rain water away from your home. This protects your roof, foundation, basement, and landscaping from expensive damage.

Gutters that are clogged with leaves are not able to do their job properly. They will trap water instead of helping to make it flow away from your home. And gutter guards are no help either – they get clogged and trap leaves on top where it can damage the gutters themselves. So face it, gutter cleaning is a must-do maintenance item, just like raking the leaves on the ground.

How Important Are Your Gutters?

Let’s just say that unless you like washed out landscaping, damaged foundations, flooded basements, and water coming in every crevice – they are pretty important. Gutters play an easy to overlook but very important role in protecting your home (and your family) from the weather. So keeping your gutters cleaned is not only very important it is cheap insurance against other problems.
