Gutter Helmet® Part 1: The Risks of Clogged Gutters

By July 17, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

Cleaning your gutters is an important task that needs to be done regularly. Failure to do so can cause serious issues for your home. Your gutters keep water away from your home, and keeping them unclogged and healthy allows them to do their job properly. Let Gutter Helmet® of Michigan, the top provider of gutter protection products, discuss the different risks of clogged gutters.

Damaged Foundation

Leaves and debris buildup in your gutter systems block the flow of water. This causes them to overflow over the sides of your home and eventually pool around your foundation. The increased moisture in the soil creates a weak base for your home. Over time, the constant presence of water causes cracks to form in the foundation and lower walls leading to potentially more damage.

Landscape Damage

The water from your gutters can damage not only your foundation but also the landscaping. The heavy flow of water can ruin the flower beds and shrubs near the base of your home. The excess amounts of water in the soil also leads to soil erosion, ruining small trees and plants. Gutter Helmet can help you keep well-maintained gutters to avoid water damage.

Rotten Wood

Ponding water in your gutters can damage the wooden fascia boards that hold the system together. Once the wood is rotten, water can seep through and further damage your interior. The overflowing water can also damage the exterior  of the home and wood siding.
