Gutter maintenance, on the other hand, is often a difficult, anxiety-filled job,, and can even be downright deadly. When leaves and debris clog gutters, you, your spouse, or a loved one may need to scale ladders, and roofs, to clean out the problem-gutters. Hanging off of ladders or leaning over the edge can lead to life threatening falls.
When gutters aren’t functioning properly, water can overflow into the roof, causing extensive damage. Water may also pool near the foundation creating the potential for flooding into the basement or damage to the foundation as water freezes and expands during out long winter season here in Wisconsin.
Today’s gutters have several advantages over gutter designs of the past. Many have much greater water volume capacity than older gutter styles and are more resistant to clogging. Along with that, better construction techniques and technologies reduce clogging at seams, while higher quality gutters reduce the chance of corrosion, which can lead to extensive gutter problems. .
Gutter protection provides a further defense against clogs by keeping most leaves and debris from entering your gutters in the first place, but not all gutter protection is created equally. Many use screens and grids that may also clog with debris, or freeze over and cause problems for the homeowner.
