Your roof is one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. Scheduled roofing maintenance can help extend your roof’s life span. You can also invest in efficient gutters.
How Gutters Affect Roof Performance
Gutters primarily catch rainwater runoff as it falls from the roof. When clogged gutters overflow, the water goes back up to the roof, under the shingles and deck. If enough water seeps into the underlayment and through your roof deck, the wood will absorb it. The excess water could develop into leaks, even if your roof doesn’t have holes in it.
With clean gutters, you don’t have to worry about water seeping into your roofing system. Clog-free gutters prevent rotten fascia boards, damaged exterior components, and flood-free basements. You can also ensure that your foundation will stay intact.
How to Optimize Gutters
The best way to ensure that your gutters work is to have a proactive approach to cleaning and maintenance. Once you see signs of damage, you should schedule roof repair from professionals like us. You should also schedule gutter cleaning at least twice yearly. Maintenance ultimately prolongs your gutters’ and your roof’s service life and prevents costly repairs and replacement.
You can also replace your old gutters with more durable options. At JCB Contracting, we offer steel gutters from Weather Guard and Spectra Metal Sales. They combine strength and protection from corrosion, so you can expect years of quality performance.
