Missing Spring Gutter Cleaning can Ruin Your Roof and Siding
Yes, it is that time again if you haven’t done so already! That extra chore that most every home owner dreads every year. Whether it’s the fact of taking the ladder out or having to get on the roof and trying to dig out the decomposed leaves, seeds, and shingle gravel. Almost everyone does not look forward to climbing on the roof to clean the gutters. But, this is definitely one chore that needs to be done and will save a lot of time and money in the long run.
No matter what expert or home professional you talk to most of them agree that maintenance on your gutters will drastically reduce the chances of the home owner having to replace his or her gutters. Over time clogged gutters can damage a lot more than just your gutters, siding, and roofing. Gutters that are not maintained can also damage your fascia board, rafters, and the plywood sheathing under your roof. This will cause a lot more heartache and money than climbing up there once a year.
