6 Signs of Clogged Gutters

By December 12, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

Although the roofing system of your house acts as your first line of defense against water and debris, the gutters play an equally vital role. They prevent build-up of these unwanted elements to avoid damage in your home. Fortunately, you can count on Gutter Helmet® to provide you with one of the best gutter guards in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Clogged Gutters

A sound gutter system prevents many issues, including landscape erosion, structural damage, and basement flooding. To help you detect any gutter problems, P.I. Roofing and Home Solutions talks about six signs of clogged gutters.

1. Animal Infestation

Accumulated leaves and other debris can make a warm and comfortable nook for animals. When you see birds, insects, or even cats spending time on your roofs and gutters, it’s time to check on your gutters and call our experts for gutter care.

2. Water Overflow and Puddles

Leaves and other fragments may block the path for water drainage. This leads to water pooling, which may eventually lead to rain spillovers. This, in turn, may cause foundation damage to your house. Prevent these from happening by inspecting and maintaining your gutters at least twice a year.

3. Sagging Gutter Sides

If water, debris, and leaves accumulate, the excess weight will eventually take a toll on the gutters. This may lead to their collapse and considerable damage to your house.

4. Plant Growth

The excess moisture from the water buildup and the accumulated debris serve as good soil foundation for vegetation. Plant growth clearly indicates clogged gutters.

5. Leaky Joints

Usually, the joint separations form cracks and holes because of the additional pressure from accumulated water and debris deposits. If this persists, water may seep into your home and  cause damage.

6. Formation of Rust or Mildew

If you see staining along your gutters or sides of your house, this indicates that water has accumulated along them. Eventually, rust and mildew form because of chemical reactions with water. This may cause your gutter system to weaken.
