Did you know that a clogged gutter can cause damage to your roof and other parts of a home? It is true, which is why it is so important to make sure your gutters are always clean and well maintained. Mendocino County homeowners that get regular inspections from a local Willits gutters service have peace of mind that their home’s gutter system is protected and working how it should.
It doesn’t take much dirt and debris to clog up a gutter. When this happens, water will spill over the edges and splashes back onto the roof leaving the shingles and other materials saturated with water. Other pressing matters that can result are basement flooding and foundation damage.
It is very important to clean and maintain your gutters. Otherwise, you could end up with these problems:
- Damaged fascia, soffit, and exterior siding
- Ruined landscaping
- Basement water damage
- Foundation damage
When Should You Clean Your Gutters?
For most Mendocino County property owners, twice a year is the correct answer. The best times are in the fall just after most of the leaves have dropped, and then again in the spring to get anything left from the fall and winter. A great idea is to match it up with other home maintenance tasks such as:
- Whenever you have a Willits roof repair service inspect your roof
- Changing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
- Changing your outdoor light bulbs
- Cleaning the exterior windows
- Around daylight savings
