As we all can see, leaves have changed colors and have begun to fall. When the leaves leave a tree where do they go? They go down to the ground. While that may seem logical, not all do make it to the ground. Some will land on your roof which causes two significan problems. The first is they can clog your gutters which can cause significant problems over the longer term. When gutters can not drain the water sits there causing problems to the wood structure of your home. The second problem can be a fire issue. If a spark from your fireplace were to start a fire in your gutters or on your roof. That could cause a real problem over the shorter term.

It is time to schedule someone to get on your roof and remove the debris that has collected. You will want to do this prior to the winter rains.

  1. Thank you for taking time to talk about this topic, Scott. Leaves that are left on the gutter may form a blockage that would harden like cement given time. It may cause harm to both the structure and tenants of the house and also be a nuisance, since getting rid of it would take up a considerable amount of time.
