When was the last time you thought about your rain gutters? Let's face it nobody ever really gives much thought about the rain gutters unless they stop working. At One Call Property Solutions, we want you to think about your gutters, at least twice a year. Once in the Spring and again in the Fall and here's why.
Gutters get full of leaves and debris and will block the path of the water flow leaving the water no where to go but to sit in the gutter or spill over the sides. I've seen rain gutters left for so long without a cleaning that between the water sitting and rotting away at the facia and the weight of the debris the gutters fell off the house. When we saw this the customer wanted the rain gutters put back on, unfortunately there was much more damage that needed repaired than just putting the rain gutter back in place.
If wood rot doesn't worry you, how about rodents? Dirty gutters are ideal for mice to nest and overwinter. They burrow in and make a home for all their babies and friends. Once they are nested that close on the house, you can bet they will move inside looking for food and warmth. Lack of cleaning can also cause water to pool, this water becomes a breeding ground for mosquitoes, plants, birds and insects.
Rain gutters are designed to move water away from the exterior of your home. Standing and running water can cause significant damage to your roof, siding and foundation. Keep gutters clean and debris free and make sure that your downspouts are clear and long enough to move water away from your foundation. You don't want that water leaking into your crawlspace or basement and causing major problems.
