Falling leaves into gutters create problems for homeowners. In October and November, gutters can easily clog with all that nature has to throw at us. The debris can build up, preventing proper water drainage. In a short period this can cause serious damage to the structure of your home. Mold can build, ground erosion will occur, there will be damage to the fascia and soffit, and cracks can occur in the foundation and basements.
Maintaining a clean gutter can be time consuming and dangerous. According to the National Safety Council, Accident Facts, U.S. Edition, falls are the number one cause of accidental death and disabling injuries at home every year. Cleaning gutters is a chore that is time-consuming, and avoiding it can lead to these issues for homeowners:
- High Maintenance
- Vegetation Growth
- Dangerous Gutter Cleaning
- Unsightly Gutters and Screens
- Mosquitoes and Unwelcome Guests
- Loss of Leisure Time
- Water in the Basement
- Landscape Erosion
- Ice Damming
