When you think about the rain gutters on your house the last item you probably consider is your landscaping. It goes without saying your rain gutters are on the roofing of your property, which is as far from your lawn as possible. So how can your gutters and yard possible be linked?
It’s straightforward; your gutters must redirect rainwater in such a way that doesn’t cause an extreme quantity of it to stream over a single area of your yard. If they do not do this then you are going to end up with a damaged yard. This can lead to soil erosion, damaged yard, and even damage to the plants you have in your backyard.
Having clean gutters can protect your home by:
- Preventing roof surface damage
- Protecting the fascia and paint
- Preventing gutters from pulling away from roof-line
- Protecting foundations and helps prevent basement flooding
- Preventing soil erosion
- Protecting siding and windows from leaking
