Roswell Gutter Installation
One of the most easily avoidable roofing problems is damage due to poor drainage from your gutters. Damage is not only confined to the top of the house. Gutters are essential protection from top to bottom: the roof, to be sure, but it also provides damage prevention for windows, doors, and foundation, including ground erosion. Designed to channel rainwater off your roof and away from your home’s foundation, broken gutters create back-ups and pooling of water, which then erodes the roof.
Back-ups are caused by a number of ways, but most commonly, it is simply yard debris such as leaves, sticks and dirt that create a dam that prevents the gutter from performing the way it was designed to work. When the lines are clogged, rainwater has nowhere to go but to spill over the edge or climb back up the roof. One way creates an uncomfortable welcome for visitors who approach your door on a rainy night, the other way taxes your roof surface and can cause roof leaks through rain and water damage.

Ignoring the problem only leads to bigger problems. Gutter obstruction that is ignored in the summer quietly creates more damage in winter as the standing water freezes and expands in all direction, including into your roof. The ice can lift fascia, shingles and other roofing materials, pulling it away from the home and creating an opening for outside elements to penetrate. A winter of hard freezes can cause so much expansion and contraction that the roofing material becomes so loose it results in torn or missing shingles. Regular cleaning and periodic inspections will help to prevent this problem before it begins.
