When your gutters are free of silt and leaves, water flows away from your house and reduces the chance of leaks to your roof and walls. Learn when to have your gutters cleaned and what could happen if you don’t.
According to a nationwide poll of Angie’s List members, nearly 20 percent said they've had damage to their home as a result of ignoring needed gutter maintenance. Common problems are damage to the fascia, a leaky roof or basement, water damage to the interior and landscaping erosion. But gutter cleaning is not necessarily a do-it-yourself project. Each year more than 500,000 people are treated for ladder-related injuries in the U.S. according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
