Gutter systems never get the respect that they deserve, even though they play an important role in protecting your home. Your roofing system can capture huge amounts of water, and as it runs off, your gutters are responsible for collecting this water and channeling it away from sensitive areas where it cannot cause damage.
If your gutters have ceased to work as they should, then you might already be surprised by the amount of damage water falling from the roof can do. It can wash away anything that’s directly underneath the gutters, including walkways, landscaping and soil. If water continues to drain near the home, this can lead to basement flooding, foundation settling and cracks. Your siding may even start rotting out from moisture damage.
Don’t let these types of damage happen to your home. Turn to the general contractor that residents of the St. Louis Metro area trust with all their home improvement projects:

The Importance of Clean Gutters
While your gutters might be in perfect condition, they may still be giving you grief. Why? Clogged gutters are just as problematic as poorly performing ones. Everything from leaves to twigs to animal nests can cause water to back up onto your roof or overflow onto the ground.
Water backup can cause ice dams and even leaks, which could lead to more serious problems. Don’t let this happen. Invest in gutter cleaning and maintenance from an experienced general contractor like Green Tree Home Solutions. We’ll ensure that your gutters effectively do their job throughout the year.
