Gutters can be a source of roof leaks. This is because clogged gutters can cause rainwater to back up and go under your shingles into your roof.
Therefore, it is important to keep your gutters clear because not doing so leads to leaks and other roof problems such as moss buildup on shingles and shingle deterioration.
Keeping your gutters clear is a part of the regular maintenance of your roof. Not doing so can void the manufacturer's warranty of your roofing material because in the fine print it says that regular maintenance is a requirement.
Gutter cleaning in the late fall should be included with a regular roof inspection to ensure your roof stays in tip-top shape.
Absolute Roof Solutions can also install downspout cleanouts in your downspouts. The purpose of this filter is to allow debris to be flushed down your downspout where it will be trapped at a level you can easily clean the filter from the ground. This eliminates the need for a screen filter at roof level over the downspouts which, when they clog, backup your entire gutter drainage system.
