Gutters, everyone has them, everyone hates cleaning them.

But what people may not know is that if you do not clean your gutters regularly, they could get damaged and need to be replaced. Especially during winter.

In the fall, leaves get trapped in the gutters, and as it rains the leaves turn into heavy gunk. Now we all know this, but some of us do not know that during the winter this gunk freezes, and could cause cracks, and even create weight distribution problems for the gutters.

A lot of this gunk gets stuck in the main escape drain, which is usually where the water escapes to prevent flooding. Damaged or clogged gutters could potentially lead to basements flooding, paint damage and foundation cracking, just to name a few.

Keep your gutters clean this year or you may have a possibly sticky situation on your hands.
