What Causes Your Alpharetta Home's Gutters to Become Clogged?
Your gutters are among the most essential installations that make up your home, and you need to make sure they always work their best. To do that, you may need to look to your preferred Alpharetta pressure washing company for a gutter cleaning. This work will remove any stubborn blockages and keep your home protected from these issues:
- Water damage
- Roofing issues
- Cracked foundation
- Mold growth
- Damage to siding
There may be a question lingering on your mind as you call for this work, though: Just what IS causing your gutters to become clogged? Is it something you have any control over? NO control over? Should you even bother getting your gutters cleaned if they're just going to become clogged again shortly after?
We'll help you get some understanding of your gutter issues by detailing just a few of the more common factors that lead to them. While a gutter cleaning may not be able to prevent all of these factors, this work will go a long way toward ensuring your gutters continue to work as best they can so that your home can remain protected from damages.
Close Proximity to Trees
Trees account for the greatest majority of gutter blockages. Twigs, leaves, pine needles, and other such debris can get into your gutters and block them up over time. So, if your home is surrounded by numerous trees, you can pretty much bank on blockages developing.
Gutters function on a rather simple design: They slope, allowing water to move to the drain spout and safely away from your home. If your gutters don't slope sufficiently because of a shoddy installation or just wear over time, they will become clogged in time, guaranteed.
Even if your gutters slope sufficiently and they aren't close enough to tress to become backed up with debris, they can still suffer blockages if their drainage system is shoddy. Whether that shoddiness is due to installation problems or any other factors, you can pretty much bank on an overflow developing at some point down the line.
