Keeping your gutters clean is one of the most effective things you can do to make sure your home is always in great shape. Unfortunately, the task is tedious. Doubly unfortunate is the fact that gutter cleaning can also be dangerous as it requires the use of a ladder. Does that mean you have to choose between either having clean gutters or staying safe? Not necessarily.
If you’ve lived long in your current home, chances are you’ve seen your gutters do things to your home they normally wouldn’t be doing if they were in tip-top shape. Those are red flags that tell you it’s time to replace your gutters.
Many homeowners consider the gutters as just an added feature of the roof. In truth, they’re an integral component that protects the structure along with the exterior walls and foundation from water damage and exposure.
