Depending on the pitch and style of your roof, it may accumulate a lot of water over time. This water should be drained away through your home’s gutter system, but sometimes drainage isn’t entirely effective due to clogged or defective gutters. When this happens, standing water can eventually cause significant damage to your roof, leading to leaks and eventually mould growth and possibly even lessened structural integrity. That’s why it’s important to keep gutters clear and to have yearly roof inspections to ensure everything stays in great condition.
The most common issues with gutters are lack of cleaning. Over time, leaves, sticks and other debris can accumulate inside of them and block off the water escape route. When this happens, water can back up and cause puddling at your roofline. The best way to keep your gutters in good working order is to have them cleaned regularly and to have damage caused by storms repaired quickly.
