How Clogs Can Lead to Ruined Gutters

By September 23, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Keeping your gutters well-maintained is important. Gutters redirect water away from your home to prevent it from causing damage. When a gutter becomes clogged, you run the risk of water going where it shouldn’t.

Problems with Clogged Gutters

Clogged gutters can trap rainwater which will eventually seep behind the gutter itself, causing the fascia board to deteriorate. In addition, the weight of accumulated debris and water exerts considerable pressure on the rotting board. Your gutters could then sag and even collapse.

Without gutters to protect your home, rainwater can damage your foundation, siding and roof. When water spills over and hits the ground surrounding your foundation, the soil will become completely saturated and put a great deal of pressure on the sides of your home. This can lead to cracks, which can then lead to moisture invasion and mold growth. Large amounts of water can also cause similar rot and damage to your roof and siding.
