Properly pitched gutters and leaders gather that water and channel it away from the home. Doing so prevents water penetration into the home and its foundation.
Because of how important a properly flowing gutter system is to your home, you must keep them clean, all year round. If you don’t, rainwater can seep into your home’s roof, siding, and even its foundation. Water damage to these parts of your home can result in costly repairs. Simply cleaning your gutters prevents these expensive projects and keeps water flowing away from your home.
