“True or False” about Gutter Cleaning
Gutter Cleaning helps prevents roof leaks. Answer (True). Although the majority of roof leaks are caused by roofing defects, clogged gutters can allow water to build up behind the gutters and eventually work its way into your house.
Gutter Cleaning can help prevent wood rot. Answer (True). When gutters are clogged, water can spill over the gutters onto your gutter board causing the wood to slowly rot.
Gutter Cleaning can prevent foundation damage. Answer (True). When gutters are clogged, large amounts of water can spill over, slowly eroding the dirt away from your foundation. Your foundation can lose support, settle, shift or crack. As a result, you can have costly foundation repairs. And, water leaking into your crawlspace or basement may lead to mold growth… a definite health danger.
Gutter Cleaning can help prevent Ice Dams. Answer (True). Severe ice dams can occur regardless of whether your gutters are clean or not. However, gutter cleaning can delay ice dams. The only way to truly prevent ice dams is by addressing heat loss through your roof. There are ways to help protect your house from ice dams; they include installing ice and water shield under your roof shingles, installing ice cables on the roof, and addressing your heat loss through the roof. Gutter Covers can also help prevent or reduce ice dams.
