Most of us don’t spend a lot of time thinking about our home’s gutter system. It’s one of those things around your house that you don’t usually put a lot of thought into until there’s a problem. But your gutter system actually serves a very important purpose when it comes to keeping your home free of moisture and damage caused by water and ice dams on the roof. That’s why it’s important to keep your gutters free of clogs and update any necessary repairs to your gutter system as soon as possible.
Our team of residential roofing experts at J&J Roofing in Roseville offers a simple but effective solution to help your gutters do their job. In this post, we’ll discuss the benefit of installing gutter guards on your home.
Cleaning Your Gutters
It’s a rare soul that doesn’t dread grabbing the ladder and dragging it around the perimeter of their roof to clean out their gutter canals. But every fall when all of those beautiful autumn leaves are falling across Michigan, they’re also falling into your home’s gutters. Not only does this mean you’re more likely to experience a gutter clog, but it can also create a pretty cozy-looking home for small critters.
Whether you’ve got leaves or birds in your gutters, anything in the way of water can lead to damage to your siding or roof. It can also end up causing ice dams, which can cause water infiltration and serious damage to your home’s interior. Thankfully, there is a way to have clean gutters without going to the trouble of constantly cleaning them.
Gutter guards have many advantages:
● You don’t need to install all-new gutters to add them.
● They make gutter maintenance easier and smoother.
● They help reduce the presence of stagnant water and mosquitoes around your home and property.
● They eliminate rust and gutter damage caused by gutter debris.
