The heavy rains in Texas, especially the Houston area, need sturdy gutters that are capable of withstanding water and wind. Improper channeling of water often causes damage to your siding, roof, landscape, and foundation.
That’s why you can trust Guardian Roofing’s well-installed gutters to protect your home and prevent flooding.
Why You Need Proper Gutter Systems
Picture rain pouring out from your roof without a gutter. Where would the rainwater land? Of course, on the ground that surrounds your home. At first, you may not notice the gravity of missing gutters, but with time, you’ll start seeing the following consequences:
Water starts collecting and leaking into your basement
The soil erosion ruining your landscape
Your siding is getting damaged and needs a repair
Your expensive stone masonry getting stained
Mold growth from water entering your home
Why Damaged Gutters are a Problem
They Compromise Your Foundation
While patching a few cracked shingles here and there is not much of a problem, it does spoil the look of your house. You should be particularly concerned if the cracking isn’t isolated to one particular area and it’s random. That’s a tell-tale sign that you should start thinking about replacing your entire roof.
They Disturb Your Living Environment
Rainwater runoff also causes splash back. When water falls on the ground, it displaces the soil around your home. If you’re growing any plants, it can harm them. Not to mention, it also throws dirt onto your building’s siding. Plus, the area where water collects and stands becomes depressed, known as ponding. This standing water breeds ants, roaches, termites, and mosquitoes.
They Can Fall Away From Your Roof
Like any container, gutters can only take a limited amount of weight. When debris and dirt accumulate inside, it can cause sagging and bending. Furthermore, gutters get loose and pull away from the roof’s board. If left unchecked, it can even tear off and fall from the roof.

Clean gutters are essential for their proper functioning. We remove all the debris from your channels for a free-flowing gutter system. Along with cleaning them, we also inspect them for any possible damage.
We recommend cleaning gutters before winters to avoid damming in the gutter systems. During winter, a lot of roof debris and dirt tends to accumulate. When you wash them in the spring, you can ensure that winter didn’t cause any damage, thus preventing expensive repairs.
For most properties, cleaning and inspection in fall and spring are ideal. Based on your individual needs, we can also give you a free estimate!
