Keep your gutters clean to help prevent storm damage
As fall approaches and the leaves begin to fall, keep in mind, clean and clear gutters, help prevent storm and water damage to your Parma, OH home.
Here’s some benefits to keeping your gutters clear and avoiding storm damage:
No homeowner ever wants to hear the words “foundation damage.” To prevent water from leaking through your foundation, check your gutters. When gutters are clogged and we have heavy rain, it will often cause water to backup and enter your home or basement. If you don’t clean your gutters out at the end of Fall, your clogged gutters also increase your risk for ice dams forming during the winter leading to water damage as well.
The number one purpose of gutters on your home is to move water away from your home’s foundation and keeping your basement dry. But there are also other benefits to having gutters. Gutters help prevent water damage to your siding and help prevent cracked sidewalks, patios and driveways by properly moving storm water.
