Common Gutter Problems For You to Avoid

By September 5, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters have the all-important function of channeling water away from your home. Without them, you risk exposing your home to the constant threat of water damage. Being such an important component, it’s vital to always keep them in tip-top shape. Here are the common gutter problems you need to prevent.

Clogging

When left unattended for an extended period of time, your gutters can collect various types of debris. Anything from leaves to pine needles and twigs can build up inside them and begin clogging up the system. When this happens, you will be left vulnerable to water damage as water reverts back to your home.

Sagging

The sagging of your gutters is a result of persistent clogs. When water stays trapped in your gutters, it causes an undue amount of pressure to bear down. This results in your entire gutter system sagging and separating from your roof.

Leaking

Being constantly exposed to the harshness of the elements can hasten the life expectancy of your gutters. You’re sure to find signs of staining as well as mold and mildew growth over time. That’s why it’s important to further invest in the best gutter guard system you can find.

Draining

Gutters should certainly drain water, but when they drain too close to your home’s foundation, water can end up seeping into your basement and flooding it. You also run the risk of ruining your landscaping if the excess water damages landscaped areas near the home.

The best solution is always one that goes straight to the source of the problem. By eliminating the cause of your gutter woes, you won’t have to worry about clogs and the complications they bring.
