A home with a 1,500-square-foot roof sheds 1,000 gallons of water for every inch of falling rain. To prevent water from penetrating your home or damaging the foundation, it is essential that this water is gathered and channeled away from your home. Gutters and leaders serve just that purpose.
However, even a handful of debris prevents your gutters from working!
Gutters that are neglected will carry heavy debris which has accumulated over time, in addition to standing water. That debris and water can weigh as much as 370 pounds, and can damage the angle of the gutter (known as the gutter’s ‘pitch’). If that pitch is lost due to excess weight, standing water can back up into the home or overflow into the home’s foundation, possibly flooding your basement, which is why clearing your gutters is so important.And we are here to proect your home from such a damage.
