How Your Gutter Can Affect Your Roof

If there’s one chore nearly everyone hates, it’s cleaning out the gutters. However, if you hate spending lots of money even more, then you should make it a point to take good care of them. That’s because gutters play a very important role in the overall performance and condition of the roof they are attached to. When gutters become clogged, rain water and snow melt can pool and spill over on to the roof and through cracks. The resulting attic water damage can require significant repairs. Clogged gutters can also become heavy during a rain or snow storm, and the resulting pressure can rip down sections of the roof where it is attached.

Gutters are an important part of your overall roof system, so make sure they are in good condition by scheduling an inspection with a licensed home roofing company in Redmond . If your gutters need any repairs or need to be replaced, it’s better to pay the small cost now than wait until they cause more damage that requires more extensive roof repairs.
