To protect the structure of the roof of your home, it is important to clean your gutters, especially before and throughout winter. This will ensure your roof remains in a good condition.
Here are 3 reasons why gutter cleaning is important:
- Keeping pests away: When gutters are clogged this may end up being a home for birds, insects and other pests. This is the last thing that you would want to experience!
- To allow proper drainage of water: When gutters are blocked with leaves and sticks they end up blocking the rainwater which may cause damage to your roof.
- For roof protection: When water pools in the gutters it causes it to flood over which may end up causing a rotten or a leaky roof, as well as icy patches on paths below.
