One of the biggest mistakes many homeowners make is ignoring good gutter maintenance. Unfortunately, they only seem to pay attention once their gutters are failing, and problems are popping up around the house. Many parts of your home depend on a water handling system to prevent pooling and standing water problems that can damage your foundations, siding and roof. This is particularly important on metal roofing systems that are most prone to corrosion and other water-related issues.
Despite its value and usefulness, there are still a number of people on the fence about whether getting good gutter protection is worth it.
Water damage is one of those roofing problems that you never really notice until they become extremely obvious. By the time you start getting serious leaks in your roof due to excessive water issues, it’s likely too late. Some water damage problems can even be so extensive that you’ll need a full roof replacement to resolve them. You can prevent having to get expensive reroofing jobs by simply using Gutter Helmet®, the nation’s leading gutter protection system, designed to keep leaves, branches and other debris out of your gutter for good.
Foundation Repairs and Flooded Basements
Your gutters and downspouts channel water into a safe area away from your home. Without this system, rainwater will often make its way into the lowest parts of your home like your basement and cause damage there. The water could also loosen the soil around your house and cause problems with your foundations. All these require repairs that are more expensive than having good gutter protection.
Mold and mildew thrive in dark and humid areas. As water seeps through the wooden support beams in your assembly, it’s making an ideal place for the growth of these dangerous organisms. Your roofing contractor might even recommend a complete mold remediation services just to keep things under control.
