Gutter Cleaning...A Forgotten Necessity

 We all know that the roof of a home is a vital aspect of your property. Probably because they are so expensive so it's always on our mind when a storm comes through. It's of course important to monitor  your roof for damage, but it's just as important to check your gutters and have them properly cleaned to avoid other issues.

The main purpose of a gutter system is to collect and funnel water off of the roof, and guide it away from the house and other objects below. Homes without proper gutters will see soil erosion due to the amount of water coming off of the roof in the same continuous spot. The longer this happens, the greater the chance of having foundation issues and other structural damages to your home. Especially those that live in area where it is common to have a basement. 

The downfall to gutters, is that they can easily get clogged from leaves and branches. Even if you have gutter guards, it's not going to 100% prevent it from possibly clogging. And with anything, a clog can turn into an issue.

Cleaning a gutter can be both a forgotten need, and a time consuming task. Gutters San Antonio and other roofing services normally provide both gutter installations and gutter cleanings. Areas where it freezes can also cause issues with frozen water that weigh down your gutters.

So remember, always check your gutters. You're better off spending the time to occasionally bring out the ladder to check for damages and clogs. Contact your local roofing company to see if they can quickly come out for a roof inspection along with a gutter cleaning!
