Gutters have one job, and that is prevent water from making its way into your home. Your homes gutters protect the foundation of your home, prevent erosion, protect your landscaping and prevent basement flooding. Because gutters play such an important role in your home’s health, they need to be maintained and cleaned regularly. Making sure that there aren’t any holes or gaps in your gutters is a good place to start.

The biggest reason gutters fail to protect your home is due to clogs, the most common clogs include

  • Leaves
  • Shingle grit
  • Pine needles
  • General debris

These clogs can cause your gutters to clog and this prevents the gutters from diverting water away from your home. Over time this can cause a large water build up around the base of your home and cause a lot of damage.
