How important are gutters really? Sure, they help when it rains, but it’s not like they’re mandatory, right? You probably never give a lot of thought to your gutters, but it turns out they’re actually one of your home’s first — and best — defenses against water damage that can crater your property value and curb appeal, costing you thousands in repairs. Gutters in Portland are even more important than most places because of the heavy amounts of rain the Pacific Northwest experiences. That’s why at Gutter Empire we’re committed to offering you affordable gutter cleaning and gutter guards in Portland, so you never have to worry about the health of your gutters.
Diverting water from your house might not seem like a big deal, but in a storm-prone region like the Pacific Northwest, water damage is one of the leading risks to homes. Water can damage everything it comes into contact with — wood rots, metal rusts, and concrete is leeched of minerals. Homes with clogged or damaged gutters, or ones that don’t have gutters at all, are at risk of flooding your basement and eroding your foundation. The longer the gutter problem is left unaddressed, the more time the water has to seep into your home. Long-term standing water can lead to mold growth, and not just on the outside of your home. Water can slip through the tiniest of cracks, so before you know it you have mold growing around your windows and throughout your basement.
That’s why Gutter Empire is proud to offer you our full-spectrum gutter services that help keep your home safe from the damaging effects of water. From installation to cleaning to inspections, we’re your one-stop-shop for anything and everything gutter related.
