Clogged gutter

 

Clogged gutters can cause a multitude of problems, if left unattended it could end up costing a lot in damages! Some of the problems clogged gutters create are;

Rotted Soffit & Fascia:

If water isn’t able to run through gutters, it causes water to back up into the roof line. Over time it will rot soffit & fascia boards, roof sheathing, and wreck shingles.

Cracked Foundation:

Clogs will cause gutters to overflow. If water isn’t being properly drained away from your home, it can pool under your gutters and leave standing water on your foundation. Most homes are built on concrete block or poured concrete. Standing water on concrete will eventually erode and crack. Foundation issues are VERY expensive to fix! If you have a crawlspace under your home, it will become moist, causing mold & mildew. In addition to structural issues and mold, this also attracts more mosquitos to your yard.

Wet or Flooded Basement:

If water isn’t being drained away properly, it can start to seep into your basement. This can destroy walls, flooring (carpeting), and stored personal items!

Landscaping:

Water run off washes away dirt and grass, leaving behind bare spots in your lawn.
