The time and risks taken during the chore of gutter cleaning make the job unappealing for many homeowners. However, unattended gutters can cause many problems. A gutter that is full of debris might attract roaches, and gutters full of water can cause mold and mildew growth. Gutters that are left undisturbed can become home to birds' nests and beehives, and blocked ones can overflow and result in water damage to your yard and home.
If your house is somewhere that gets a lot of rain — and Colesville certainly qualifies, as it sits in the 64.4% percentile for average daily precipitation — then having well-protected gutters becomes all that much more important, due to the fact that they have to work harder than gutters on your average house.
