Are you tired of climbing onto your roof several times a year to clean out your gutters from being stuffed with leaves, pine needles, acorns and kids play toys! For most of you familiar with this task on the “honey-do” list, you know it’s not an easy one. If you’re not risking danger by climbing up a ladder to mull around on your roof, you’re sifting through mud, dirt and leaves to get the gutters clean and debris-free.
If you choose not to go through this experience, you will end up paying Niagara Gutter Cleaning to do it for you. Either way, cleaning out your gutters is not enjoyable. One way to vastly reduce to frequency of cleaning is to install a gutter protection system, such as a Niagara Gutter Guard Installation.
Some of you might ask, “Why not eliminate the gutter system altogether, which will eliminate the problems associated with it?” Well, that may be the easy solution, but having a gutter system around your home is essential for good home maintenance. According to an article posted on the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate website, “The purpose of a gutter system is to help control the flow of water from the roof to the ground, preventing rain damage to the exterior of the home, erosion, and to help protect the landscaping from washing away.” This is why it is so important to keep your gutters in good condition and free from debris.
Niagara Gutter Guard Installation is designed to do just that, keep your gutters in good condition and debris-free. When your gutters are not protected, they can become clogged from debris such as pine needles, tree branches, dirt and other obstructions, causing the water to back up onto your roof, which may cause permanent water damage to your house. This is especially prevalent during the winter season, when there is heavy rain and snow fall, which affects the drain, as well as the gutter structure. When gutters are clogged and the water has no way to drain, the weight can become too much for the structure to hold, and may cause it to tear away from the house causing you to need Niagara Gutter Repairs. The excess water can also cause wood to rot, interior home damage, and foundation problems.
Niagara Gutter Guard Installation eliminates the problems associated with trying to clean your gutters by yourself. Manual cleaning is not very effective, as it’s a temporary fix, and can be a very dangerous task. While standing high off the ground on a ladder, you must scoop out debris into a bucket, and then scrape out any material that may have grown into the gutter, such as roots and animal habitats. Next, you have to rinse out the entire gutter system to check for clogs.
Speaking to someone in emergency at the Welland Hospital, we have been told that 15-20 seriously injured people come in each gutter cleaning season due to ladder falls. Many people have been seriously injured while trying to accomplish this task. Yet they have to repeat the process year after year, because without gutter protection, the gutters will continually clog.
