Reasons to Remove Leaves from Your Home’s Gutters

When you look up at your gutters, what do you see? Like most, you hope you don’t spot any problems. Unfortunately, gutters have a way of wearing down over time. This is why it is so important to inspect them on a yearly basis.

Depending on where you live, leaves clogging your gutters could turn into a major problem. Here are some of the reasons why you don’t want to let leaves accumulate:

·      Poor performance. As more leaves clog your gutters, there is less chance that they will perform as expected. Subsequently, it can cause damage to other parts of your home.

·      Leaves weigh down gutters. Too many leaves can lead to your gutters pulling away from your home.

·      Premature wear. You want your gutters to last as long as possible, but you can’t expect this to happen if leaves continue to build up over time.

What’s the solution? There are a few ways to address this problem. First off, you can clean your gutters on a regular basis. There is nothing wrong with this and it is a strategy homeowners have been using for many years.

Here is your other option: install the Gutter ProTech Gutter Protection System. With this, gutters are able to perform as expected. But here is the kicker: they are protected from leaf build-up.

Now do you understand why you should never let leaves accumulate in your home’s gutters? If this is a problem for you, now is the time to find a solution.

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

Brian N.

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.

"I recently hired Pond Roofing to check out a leak. They did a great job coming in on time and to troubleshoot the issue. Their pricing was competitive and overall service was excellent. I’m very happy with their work."
