All roofs require annual and extended maintenance. Removing leaves, checking for mold, mildew or moss growth, checking shingles..are all examples of annual maintenance. Areas where the roof connects with a wall should be checked for water leakage or rot. Checking your gutters should be part of a regular annual roof inspection. You can complete this inspection yourself, or hire a professional roofing company. A properly functioning gutter system is an important investment for your home. An under-performing or improperly installed gutter protection can result in very costly damages to landscaping and even corrosion and erosion of your home's foundation.
Improperly installed gutters can result in unexpected and unnecessary property damage. Most homeowners know that excess water can flow directly into their basement or garage. What they may not be aware of is that water that is incorrectly directed into adjacent grassy or landscaped areas can seep through the ground and weaken or seep through the walls of the same garage and/or basement.
A basement with standing water or a cracked foundation or driveway could have begun with clogged, overflowing, leaking or improperly placed gutters.
Older gutters and downspouts can also rust or expand over time. This causes leaking and broken joints. This makes them difficult to keep clean. It is also an unsightly addition to your home. The addition of the latest color coated seamless gutters can make your home look updated. New seamless gutters also reduces the possibility of leaks and protects your home and landscape.
Dirty and clogged gutters can cause a domino effect resulting in damage to your roofing components. With our unpredictable Bend winters, it can cause ice dams. Debris can also push moisture up under the protective top layer of your shingles encouraging moisture damage.
Gutters can also become dislodged during wind, rain, hail or snow storms. If you home has a high pitch, or you have a seasonal home, you may not notice the damage until it affects other areas of your property.
An annual check for homes that are used seasonally is an important preventative measure. A qualified master roofer will reattach and secure your gutters at a reasonable price with a quality guarantee.
