Problems that Arise from Clogged Gutters

You can save yourself time, money and huge headache by simply getting your gutters and downspouts a regular cleaning! Over time, uncleaned gutters can get clogged and start causing water damage or flooding. Clogged gutters can lead to a myriad of problems, below are the top five problems we have seen caused by clogged gutters.

Roof Damage

When water starts backing up in unclean gutters, the edge of the rof surface and underlying materials can get ruined. In turn, the wood and surface material start to rot. IT will then need to be replaced.

Wood Fascia Damage

Backed up water in gutters can cause the gutter attachments to start to pull away from the wood fascia which damages the wood. Water that spills over will cause wood to rot as well.

Damage to Walls, Windows & More

Water that starts to spill over the edges of clogged gutters will start to fall into your walls, doors and windows. These areas of your home can quickly become ruined by this much water exposure.

Foundation and Landscape Damage

Excess water spilling out over clogged gutters can compromise the foundation of your home, as well as ruin your landscape. Clean gutters and downspouts are made to carry water away from your home, so when they are clogged they do no function properly.
