Life is busy. In addition to the daily work schedule, we often find ourselves assisting with kids' school projects, attending sports activities, chauffeuring dance classes, planning birthday parties, and so much more. We barely have enough time to keep the house clean, so things like cleaning the rain gutters doesn't make it high on the to-do list.
Unfortunately, as homeowners we can forget how important gutters really are.
Gutters control the flow of rainwater to protect your roof, walls, foundation, and your landscape. When gutters become full of debris (leaves, twigs, rodent nests, and more) it can lead to more serious issues. Things like a leaky roof, which can cause water damage to both the inside and outside of your home. Clogged gutters also make a great place for mosquitoes to breed and mold to grow. (Just what you've always wanted: your own pet mosquito farm! Then again, maybe not.)
When gutters get really clogged, you can start getting plants and trees growing out of them. Have you ever noticed how untidy it looks? Often, clogged gutters can be spotted even from the curb. Not a great "welcome sign" for visitors.
Fortunately at Scotty's Exteriors we can provide gutter repair as well as new rain gutter installation. And we can suggest and install gutter accessories that will prevent debris from collecting in your gutters.
