Fall is here in the North Georgia mountains and while leaves are piling up in your yard they are also piling up in your gutters! Gutters are one of those things that people do not really think they need and they do not want to worry about cleaning them, but did you know that clogged gutters can cause major problems for your home if left untreated! Clogged gutters can cause water to overflow onto wood services which will eventually lead to rot and can cause puddling around the foundation which can lead to damp or leaky basements. Water can also back up into the walls or be rerouted and come in through the roof which can lead to very expensive repair costs. Standing water in your gutters can also become a breeding ground for mosquitoes and in the winter time when temperatures drop water or snow buildup can freeze into heavy blocks of ice which can cause your gutters to pull away from your home. The money required to install and clean gutters is minimal compared to the money required to repair the damage that the lack of gutters or clogged gutters can cause. So when leaves start piling up make sure to remove them as soon as possible to keep your home looking beautiful and avoid unnecessary repair costs.
*Remember there is only a short window between when the leaves fall and freezing temperatures so be sure to schedule your next gutter cleaning service ASAP so that you can keep your home looking beautiful and avoid unnecessary repair costs!
