This season the areas north of Boston have been seeing a lot of rain, which means many residential properties are taking a beating with mold problems, roof leaks, basement flooding and other issues. One of the major causes of roof leaks and water damage to homes is due to blocked gutters.
What Causes Blocked Gutters
Your gutters exist in order to collect any rain or meltwater from your roof’s shingles and transport the water safely off the roof, down the side of you house (via a downspout) and away from your property to the nearest drainage system. During the springtime, gutters can be blocked from any remaining leaves that weren’t removed in the fall and that have been washed down into the gutter from the shingles. Twigs and other debris is also another major cause of blocked gutters that should be removed as quickly as possible.
How Our Gutter Repair & Cleaning Company Can Help
If your gutters are in rough shape, our exterior contracting company will recommend repairing or replacing sections in order to improve water runoff. We use only the best quality PVC, copper, steel, and plastics available to ensure that your new gutters last longer than the original. It’s important to clear away debris from your gutters at least once a year in order to avoid these repairs and replacements.
Robbins Roofing & Contracting is here to help homeowners who may not have the time this season to clear out their gutters. Getting up on a ladder to reach your gutters is also dangerous and should be left to a professional roofing company in order to avoid accidents.
