Why It’s Important to Take Care of Your Gutters

Your gutters perform an important job for your home. These shunt rainwater into your downspout and away from critical areas in your home like your foundation, siding, and roof. When your gutters can’t perform their job, water can damage these areas. That’s why you should enlist the services of gutter specialists like Garlock-French Corporation.

A clogged gutter will fill with water and overflow. This overflowing water will then splash down onto your siding and cause unsightly water stains. If your siding has cracks or gaps, water from the gutters can also enter and cause damage. Once the water hits the ground, it can oversaturate the soil around your home’s foundation and put enormous pressure on it. When left unchecked, this can cause cracks where moisture can invade and promote mold growth.

Rainwater doesn’t just fall down; it can also back up onto your roof. This water can seep underneath your shingles and rot your underlayment and deck. Since rainwater has nowhere to go on your roof, this can lead to pooling water, causing leaks to spring. As the premier expert in gutters in Minneapolis, we can prevent this from happening.
