Gutter Guard Installation Appleton

Gutter guard installation on brand new gutters or even on an older system that underwent a deep cleaning may be one of the best financial decisions you could make.  Investing in gutter guards will reduce the amount of debris that can enter the eavestrough of your gutter system.  Twigs, leaves, rodents, birds, kid toys, and any other random objects can find their way into the gutter troughs when they do not have the protection of gutter guards.  When these items remain in the eavestrough, and homeowners neglect bi-annual routine maintenance, devastating things can happen to the gutter system. .

When gutter systems do not have gutter guards, the collecting of detritus and other various objects over time will eventually begin to obstruct the flow of water through the eavestrough.  The water will push the detritus toward the downspout and ultimately clog not only the troughs of the gutter system but also the downspouts.  When clogging occurs of both the eavestrough and the downspouts, that is when the damage begins.

When gutter systems do not have gutter guards, the collecting of detritus and other various objects over time will eventually begin to obstruct the flow of water through the eavestrough.  The water will push the detritus toward the downspout and ultimately clog not only the troughs of the gutter system but also the downspouts.  When clogging occurs of both the eavestrough and the downspouts, that is when the damage begins.

The primary damage that homeowners who neglect the clogs in their system comprises a leaking eavestrough and or downspouts.  When water overflows from over the top of the gutter trough, catastrophic damage can result to various parts of the home or building.  For example, the roof, the soffit & fascia, the landscape, the foundation, and even inside the basement can all suffer damage from clogs in the gutters.

Roof damage will begin slowly, but if it goes unnoticed or is not immediately remedied, it can develop into a serious problem.  The water that flows over the top of the gutter will seep into the wood of the roof, eventually causing mold and rotting.  A similar scenario can occur with the soffit and fascia of the home.  When you observe rotting wood, mold, mildew, or fungus, it is imperative that a course of action to reverse the problem takes place.

When the gutters become full of wet and heavy detritus, they will sag. The pressure on the hangers and hidden hangers become too great for the proper functioning of the hangers and hidden hangers, which causes them to fail.  The hangers and hidden hangers are the parts of the gutter system that hold the eavestrough in place.  Sagging gutters results in failing to move water away from the dwelling and instead causes a pooling effect on the ground below.  Pooling water can weaken the foundation and cause mold, mildew, and fungus to grow in the property’s basement.
