Your gutters and downspouts are responsible for transporting runoff from your roof and into a proper drainage location. But sometimes they can get damaged by small animals like raccoons, which can leave you with costly repairs if left unattended. Fortunately, it is pretty easy to prevent raccoons from climbing your downspouts and wreaking havoc on your home.
While raccoons are known to be intelligent animals, they sometimes cause huge problems in residential areas. They destroy building materials and make their nest in homes, go through garbage bins, and spread diseases that can affect people and pets.
Your gutter system is an extremely important part of your home. It keeps rainwater from flowing out everywhere, directing it toward the downspouts and away from your property. However, have you ever wondered where the water should go? Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal Company, explains further.
