It’s A Jungle Up There
How many times have you been to a person’s house only to notice plants growing out of their gutters? The answer is probably too many to count. Anyway, if no gutter guards are in place, dirt and seeds can mix inside the channels.
When plants grow in such a manner, they stop rainwater from running off the roof, which can lead to hosts of other problems.
Therefore, if the gutters look like a jungle, it is probably time to clean them out and have guards installed to prevent the issue from recurring.
Is The Paint Beneath Your Gutters Beginning To Peel?
It is not uncommon for the water to splash out of gutters during torrential downpours. When rainwater continually moistens the side of the house, the paint can start to peel. The additional moisture could promote mold growth as well. Therefore, if a homeowner notices peeling paint or mold growing nearby gutters, they may want to consider having gutter guards installed so that the problem doesn’t get any worse. After installation, they can make repairs or repaint as needed without worrying about future splashing.
Rainwater And Landscape Erosion
When rainwater is not kept within the confines of the gutter system, it can flow over the channels’ edges. It can also splash and spray out, landing on whatever type of landscaping is below. Dirt and gardening soil can be washed away in the process. Flowers, plants, and bushes might receive too much water because of the situation, causing them to wilt and die. If landscape erosion is a concern of yours, consider having leaf guards installed today.
