Fall is Gutter Cleaning Time!!
Gutter cleaning is commonly not at the forefront of most peoples mind, especially at this time of the year with the holidays approaching. As a contractor who specializes in Roofing West Vancouver, we've seen it all and want to relay the importance of keeping your guttering system working properly to avoid damages to your roof and other parts of your home. Failing to do so could bring about some of the following issues:
Damage to Your Roof
Gutters that are unable to drain correctly end up flooding over and splashing back onto your roof and other components of your home or business, eventually leading to roof-rot and water possibly entering into the attic thus creating even more costly problems. You'd be amazed at how often clogged gutters are the main culprit to a home or business needing a Roof Repair in West Vancouver.
Damage to Fascia
The fascia board is the wood that your gutters are fastened to and if this becomes compromised from wood rot and/or too much weight from standing water, the entire gutter could rip away from your home or business.
Your guttering system should be diverting water away from your home and when it is unable to it can collect around the foundation, causing cracks due to expansion and contraction from fluctuating temperatures above and below the freezing point.
These are just a few of the problems that can arise from a clogged or damaged guttering system. If you have any concerns that yours are not functioning the way they should be, give us a call to inspect them today at (778) 588-7477.
