Just a small build up of leaves and debris can prevent your gutters from working properly.
That's why regular gutter maintenance is needed to prevent water from penetrating your home and foundation.
If neglected, gutters can collect debris and get extremely heavy, which will inevitably lead to damage,
pitching and sagging.

5 Reasons to Regularly Clean Your Gutters
Regular cleaning and inspection of gutters is important no matter where you live, but in the Seattle
area, it is especially important due to the amount and regularity of rainfall. Neglecting this essential
regular maintenance can lead to all sorts of issues.
Rainwater should flow down you roof, into the gutters and then down the channel.
If the gutter is filled with debris, rain will pool inside of it and collect on the bottom
of the roof. This will damage roof shingles, lead to cracks forming, and eventually lead to
leaks in the home’s interior.
Improperly functioning gutters won't channel water away from your house's foundation, and when water pools
at the base of your home, it is only a matter of time until it finds its way into your basement.
Soaking your foundation in rainwater can damage it. And a home with an unstable foundation becomes an
instant safety concern, not to mention the considerable expense for foundation repairs.
Overflowing and debris filled not only damage roofing, basements, and foundations, they also cause
damage to the gutters themselves. The combination of a wet and rotted back plate, and increased weight,
will usually result in sagging gutters quickly.
Debris filled gutters attract all sorts of pests, from rats, to mosquitoes and termites. Why create
a breading ground for pest on your home? A simple gutter cleaning will keep you home yours.
