Autumn is the most picturesque time of year. The trees all begin to go brown, and their crunchy leaves fall and litter the streets. But this can affect your gutters; if you live in an area with a lot of surrounding trees, then they could collect in your gutters and cause problems for your property.
Cleaning Your Gutters
The gutter system in your property forms a key part in ensuring that your property can adequately dispose of all rainwater. In dry weather, a few leaves in your gutter won’t be a huge problem, however, if it rains, they can become heavy and prevent excess rain from draining properly. This can lead to overflowing and even cause structural damage to your property such as: walls, soffits, fascia, siding, basement, and even your foundation. If your property suffers water damage due to lack of gutter maintenance, your insurance company may hold you at fault, so if you fail to maintain your gutters the consequences may be detrimental.
