The Dangers of Clogged Gutters

Too often gutters are overlooked and cleaning them is another item on the never ending to-do list.  Gutters are an out-of-sight-out-of-mind part of your home — you only think about them when it’s raining and they overflow, and that’s not the time to clean them.

Before you know it, another month has gone by and they are still clogged and overflowing.  We sometimes hear from homeowners, “what’s the big deal – it’s just rain.”  Unfortunately, left unchecked, rain can lead to serious and expensive home repairs.

Well-performing gutters help avoid foundation damage, siding damage and roof damage.  The main purpose of working gutters and downspouts is to channel water away from the home and foundation.  When gutters are overflowing, water can gather near the foundation, and over time this causes cracks and weakens footings.  This can compromise the structural integrity and lead to settling, or water seeping into your interior spaces.  Plus, insects like termites love moisture and having wet ground near your house in never a good idea.

These are some of the reasons so many people turn to the GutterShutter gutter system.  Our patented and award-winning design keeps your gutters and downspouts from becoming clogged.  Plus, our six-inch gutter handles the large volume of water that comes from heavy downpours.

Your home is likely your biggest investment; be sure you are doing all you can to protect it and prevent costly damage and repairs.  Plus, with the GutterShutter gutter protection system, you won’t have to clean your gutters, ever!  You get to stay off the dangerous ladder, and free up time you used to spend cleaning gutters.
