When people think of what the most important parts off their house are, their mind likely goes to things such as the roof, windows, siding, a retaining wall, or insulation. However, your home’s unsung hero is the gutters. They provide a place for water to go when it rains and storms, and they protect those who enter and leave your home. Having gutters that are not functioning properly can do a lot of damage to your property and the people around your home. Thus, it is important to know when it’s time to clean your gutters without having to check them all the time. Below is a list of some questions to ask yourself.

Whether you are hiring a professional gutter cleaning company or doing it yourself, this is always an urgent matter. These regular checks can be very helpful for maintaining the health of your gutters (preventing a possible need for gutter replacement) and the overall health of your home, considering just one inch of summer rainfall pours about 1,500 gallons of water onto your roof. Also, regular roof maintenance is importan

roof especially a second story roof can really punish the ground below. If there are several rounds of steady rains, this rainwater can carve a small trench on the sides of you home. Rain gutters divert this water away and release it slowly in designated areas of your yard so that this water can be properly drained away. Without rain gutters, yards can flood, erode very quickly from the massive amounts of runoff, and other things if you didn't have gutters..
