Top 5 Reasons Why Cleaning Your Gutters Is So Important

One of the best things you can do to keep your roof – and your home’s foundation – in good condition is to ensure your gutters are in good condition, too.  Gutters are often forgotten about. However, they are extremely important and keeping them in tip top shape is important, too. Here are the top 5 reasons why!

  1. Reduce Damage To Your Roof

Gutters that are clogged and blocked aren’t able to properly flow water away from your roof. This can cause rainwater to overflow because it has nowhere to go – which can eventually cause damage to your roof.

  1. Reduce Damage To Your Foundation

Not only can clogged gutters cause damage to your roof, but it can also cause damage to other parts of the exterior. For example, clogged gutters can cause water damage to the foundation of your home, leading to cracks and other costly structural damage.

  1. Keep Pests Away

Insects and other pests, such as rodents and birds, love gutters that are clogged with leaves and other debris. The last thing you want to deal with is a pest infestation in your home. Making sure your gutters are cleaned is one sure way to make sure you avoid that problem.

  1. Protects Your Home Value

Even if you’re not looking to sell anytime soon, you should still plan to regularly clean your gutters to protect the value of your home. Truth be told, clogged gutters impact the overall aesthetic value and look of your home, which can lower the overall value in the event you plan to sell. For better curb appeal and a higher home value, make sure to keep those gutters clean.

  1. Saves You Money

If you think about it, all of the issues associated with clogged gutters come at a price. Damage to your roof is expensive, a pest infestation is another cost, and you want to get the most money out of your home. You can avoid all these added costs by making sure you keep your gutters clean through every season.
