When you look up at your gutters, what do you see? Like most, you hope you don’t spot any problems. Unfortunately, gutters have a way of wearing down over time. This is why it is so important to inspect them on a yearly basis.
Depending on where you live, leaves clogging your gutters could turn into a major problem. Here are some of the reasons why you don’t want to let leaves accumulate:
· Poor performance. As more leaves clog your gutters, there is less chance that they will perform as expected. Subsequently, it can cause damage to other parts of your home.
· Leaves weigh down gutters. Too many leaves can lead to your gutters pulling away from your home.
· Premature wear. You want your gutters to last as long as possible, but you can’t expect this to happen if leaves continue to build up over time.
What’s the solution? There are a few ways to address this problem. First off, you can clean your gutters on a regular basis. There is nothing wrong with this and it is a strategy homeowners have been using for many years.
Here is your other option: install the Gutter ProTech Gutter Protection System. With this, gutters are able to perform as expected. But here is the kicker: they are protected from leaf build-up.
Now do you understand why you should never let leaves accumulate in your home’s gutters? If this is a problem for you, now is the time to find a solution.
