Clogged Gutters

The Effects of Clogged Gutters

Whether you have a traditional or contemporary home, it needs a quality gutter system to preserve its structural integrity. It is generally designed to direct water away from your property to keep it from settling where it shouldn’t. When debris starts to build up in the gutters and the downspouts, some or all of the water that is supposed to be diverted can cause various problems in and around your home. This includes:

  • Rotted wood

  • Foundation cracks

  • Basement flooding

  • Landscape erosion

  • Mold growth

All of these problems can cost thousands to repair, which is why it’s important to keep your gutters clog-free at all times.

Ways to Clean Your Gutters

There are various methods to keep your gutters clean. For instance, you may reduce some debris that falls from trees by planting trees away from your home.
