Could Your Gutters Be Causing Potential Damage to Your Roof?

June 12, 2015
It is a job that no one looks forward to doing year in and year out but proper gutter maintenance is crucial for the lifespan of your roof. Leaving your gutters clogged for too long could potentially be taking years off the life of your roof. When there is nowhere for rainwater to drain off your roof it will just sit on the shingles. Sitting water on shingles will create the same effect water has on rocks for any period of time…it will wear them down causing the granules to come apart.  When this happens over a long period of time, your shingles can end up with little to no protection for your home. Most would say they wait to clean their gutters after all the leaves fall off the trees, when more realistically gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year if not once a season.
