Gutters and downspouts channel water away from your home; that’s their number-one responsibility. However, sometimes they fail to do this task, and clogged gutters are one reason why this happens.
With clogged gutters come a plethora of issues. There’s no way water will drain properly after a downpour.
Clogged gutters cause even more problems to your home, such as:
- Your roof will start leaking, forcing you to deal with expensive repairs and premature roof replacement.
- The standing waters backed into the roof from the clogged gutters will likely also cause water damage problems for your roofing system, resulting in mold growth. Aside from the fact that dealing with water damage is expensive, mold problems are also harmful to your health.
- Your landscaping will suffer as well – clogged gutters will cause water to spill out, which will, in turn, wash away your landscaping or cause water puddles on your lawn, and we all know that’s bad news for your lawn.
- Your foundation and basement will be compromised – when there’s no proper drainage away from your home; the water builds upon the most critical part of your home- the foundation, and a damaged foundation is a compromise for the entire house. And, of course, water seeping through the foundation will also find its way to the basement, making it damp, and causing even more water damage issues.
So, if your gutters are clogged, it may be wise to consider cleaning them out. You should also have them inspected to identify any issues and determine if gutter replacement may be the best option to take.
