Gutter cleaning is one area of home maintenance that is often overlooked by homeowners, and that can prove to be a very costly mistake. The problem with not paying attention to, and regularly cleaning out and inspecting your gutters and downspouts is that it will inevitably lead to problems down the road.
Just like any other part of your home, your gutters and downspouts near regular care, and it’s up to you to make sure that it is a priority. If you don’t, then you are going to end up with what could be very costly damage to your home, which is the last thing that you want.
Regular Gutter And Downspout Cleaning Is Well Worth The Money It Costs
The bottom line is that the cost of having a professional come out and inspect and clean your gutters and downspouts is fairly minimal. This is even more obvious when you consider the consequences of allowing the rain gutters on your home to fall into a state of disrepair. So do yourself a favor and don’t forget about your gutters and downspouts. Keeping up with their maintenance will help to protect your home, and will end up saving you a lot of money in the long run.
However, even a handful of debris prevents your gutters from working!
Gutters that are neglected will carry heavy debris which has accumulated over time, in addition to standing water. That debris and water can weigh as much as 370 pounds, and can damage the angle of the gutter (known as the gutter’s ‘pitch’). If that pitch is lost due to excess weight, standing water can back up into the home or overflow into the home’s foundation, possibly flooding your basement, which is why clearing your gutters is so important.
You should also consider gutter guards, which can eliminate the need for seasonal gutter cleaning. These can save you money in the long-run because they will minimize cleanup needs and prevent costly damage.
