The Cost of Not Maintaining and Cleaning Your Gutters

Posted at January 27, 2015 | By : | Categories : Gutters | 0 Comment

Have you taken a look up at your gutters lately? Most people choose to ignore their gutters, and when they do, create problems that never would have existed. Doing nothing with your gutters can be a real problem, and as you’ll see, waiting until it’s too late can leave a real hole in your wallet.

Doing Nothing With Your Gutters Has a Real Cost

Clogged and overflowing gutters are very common. We can’t tell you how often we go out to someone’s home and see clogged or poorly maintained gutters. Many homeowners feel that it’s cheaper to do nothing instead of investing in a gutter protection system that would solve this problem permanently.

Though it may seem that your gutters aren’t problematic, in reality they could be causing major damage to your home. In fact, clogged gutters will cost you far more to fix than an investment in gutter protection would be. Clogged gutters can:

  • Cause rot to your fascia
  • Damage your roof
  • Create unhealthy mold and mildew
  • Damage your foundation

These are just a few of the expensive problems clogged gutters can cause. We have met with many homeowners and have explained that ignoring the problem will cost them more in the long run than it would by addressing the problem now.

By maintaining your gutter system on your home, you can keep the thousands of dollars that you’ll have to spend if you decide to do nothing with your gutters.
