Fall Gutter Cleanings Means Less Winter Damage

Your gutters naturally accumulate dirt, leaves, and debris over time. Once fall arrives that buildup worsens as the leaves start falling from the trees. As a result, you need to put in more time and effort to keep your gutters clear. The solution to keeping your gutters clean into winter is to call Horch Roofing today for a gutter cleaning!

Your gutters and downspouts make sure that rainwater flows from your roof and away from your house. Without gutters — or if they are blocked or in disrepair –rainwater can cause serious damage.

If water gets under your roof, it can seep into ceilings and walls, causing them to rot, change shape, and even become infested with mold. If you are lucky, you will get away with only minor damage to your home. If you are unlucky, you and your loved ones may come down with health complications as a result of exposure to mold spores in your house.

Gutter obstructions can get worse in the winter. For example, if rainwater starts seeping into the foundations of your home, cycles of freezing and thawing can cause walls and foundations to crack. Similarly, if rainwater is not permitted to flow where it should, the backup can damage gutters once winter causes it to freeze into place. Clogged or overflowing gutters result in icicles during freezing temperatures, and that puts additional stress on the gutter system and roof.

Cleaning your gutters isn’t an especially fun job any time of the year, but it’s easier to take care of this simple maintenance task during the fall before everything freezes. Call Horch Roofing today to schedule a gutter cleaning before fall’s leaves become winter’s frozen mess!
