The guttering systems on your residential property are designed to collect rain water or moisture from the roofing area and disperse the water away from your home or property. Properly placed downspouts, leaders, or drain pipes are essential to the overall longevity of your roofing system. A faulty guttering system can also damage soffit and fascia, roof systems, building foundations, driveways, walkways and a host of other hassles.
Your gutters require annual maintenance to ensure protection for your home. Clean your gutters and make sure they are free from every type of debris including granules from shingles, leaves, sticks, and dust. Extreme exposure to nature can also cause sealant failures. Heavy snow and ice can loosen fasteners over time; therefore any damaged or bent fasteners should be replaced immediately to prevent costly repairs.
