During the Spring season, many things can be done to your home to wake it up from a long winter. Cleaning your gutters is one of the most common things on the “to do” list. This is often a tedious and daunting task. Wouldn’t it be nice to implement something to make this a little bit less daunting? There are a bunch of reasons why it is a good idea to install gutter covers. Here are three really good ones…
Prevent Cracks In Your Foundation
This can be a very expensive problem to fix. Clogged gutters can lead to water pooling around the foundation causing penetration points leading to a cracked and weakened foundation.
Prevent Rotting Wood
If your gutters become clogged and there is standing water, for even just a few hours, this can be devastating to any wood fascia existing around your house. The water can cause the wood to break down and rot causing major problems to your home. It could cost thousands of dollars to fix this issue.
Prevent Leaky Roofs
If gutters become clogged, full of water and freeze during the winter it can block unfrozen water to flow properly away from the roof. This will eventually cause the shingles and wood to weaken and potentially cause leaks in your home. Yet another costly repair!
