3 Reasons Why You Should Maintain the Home's Gutters, Onalaska, Wisconsin

The gutters on the home play a crucial role in protecting the structure from water damage. To ensure they continue to do their job, you should clean them regularly and make sure they aren’t sagging or pulling away from the wall. Here, the roofers at Coulee Region Roofing & Siding in Onalaska, WI, share a few reasons why you must perform these maintenance tasks. 

A Roofer Explains Why Gutter Upkeep Is Important

1. Avoid Pest Infestations

Insects and animals like to nest in debris-filled gutters. Unfortunately, they will also breed and make their way inside the house. A pest infestation is annoying and will result in structural damage and exposure to diseases.

2. Prevent Mold & Mildew Growth

rooferGutters that contain a lot of debris will trap moisture. This creates the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew, both of which can cause structural damage to the home and health issues. Additionally, depending on the extent of the damage, it can be expensive to schedule remediation and repairs with a roofer. 

3. Stop Foundation Damage

Gutters and downspouts that are improperly installed or cannot move water away from the home due to obstructions will eventually overflow or deposit the liquid in the wrong place. Both scenarios may result in water pooling around the foundation of the home, where it will leak inside, cause damage to the house’s interior, and weaken the foundation.
