Gutters accumulate the most debris from falling leaves in Autumn to falling buds in the Spring. If gutters are not properly cleaned at least once a year, they can become clogged with trash and debris and will not funnel water off of the roof and away from your home, which protects your siding, windows, doors and foundation from water damage. Many homeowners do not realize how much damage can occur when their gutters are clogged, leaking or broken.
Home Problems Caused By Clogged Gutters
Landscape Erosion: Overflowing water can start to erode the ground near your home and affect your landscape and grass.
Roof Damage: When water is no longer being properly drained away from the home it can leak under the roof, putting your ceilings and roof at risk.
Foundation Damage: Clogged gutters can lead to pools of water that build up near the home’s foundation. Water this close to the home is dangerous because it can penetrate the concrete foundation, causing cracks that will weaken the structure.
Basement Flooding: Pools of water not only damage the foundation but can also lead to water leaking inside your home and cause a basement flood.
Mold: Damp spaces are perfect breeding grounds for mold. It is not only a health risk, but mold can also be very difficult and costly to remove.
Siding Damage: Water that spills over the side of the gutter can seep behind siding and separate it from the home, creating significant water damage. Dark streaks on siding are one sign that dirty gutter water is overflowing and not properly draining.
Do not forget that added weight from debris can cause your gutters to become loose and sag next to your home.
