Surprising Ways Your Madison, WI, Home Can Be Affected Without a Gutter Guard
If you don’t feel that a gutter guard is necessary, then you have likely never had your gutters fail after being clogged. With a gutter protection system installed on your Madison, Wisconsin, area home, leaves and other debris are prevented from entering and draining through the downspouts, causing excess rainwater to collect and overflow through your gutter system. This can mean big trouble, as water is a natural enemy to the structure of your home and can cause problems such as:
- Damage to the roof and fascia, leading to roof and wood rot
- Water pooling near the foundation, which can cause a cracked foundation
- Stained and swollen siding
- Cracked driveways
- Insect infestation
- And much more
Not only does a gutter guard prevent the costly and unpleasant effects of water damage, but it also can help prevent a fire. Dry leaves, twigs, and other plant material that clogs your drain channel will eventually dry out. If the smallest ember finds its way into your gutter system, it could immediately start a fire and put your home and family at risk.
