Clogging is one of the most common issues found in a gutter system. Clogs endanger your roof with moisture problems and water damage if left untreated. But that’s not all they can do. Gutter Helmet of Western North Carolina, one of the top-ranked gutter guard companies in the area, discusses the other issues associated with clogged gutters.

The Dangers of Clogged Gutters

Landscape Damage

The beautiful plants and flowers surrounding your home won’t last long if your gutters are always overflowing. Gutter discharge and excess rainwater will fall on the surrounding landscape of your home and ruin its appeal.

Fascia Board Damage

Consistent drainage is important if you don’t want the structure of your gutters to be compromised and the components to be holding everything up. Standing rainwater builds weight and pulls down the gutter, damaging the fascia board in the process.

Siding Deterioration

Clogged gutters become an even bigger problem during a storm. When rainwater fills up and has nowhere else to go, it will overflow and cascade over your exterior siding. And water has the tendency to be trapped inside the gaps of exterior siding, forming moisture issues that will lead to deterioration. That means extra repair costs for you.

Soil Saturation

As excess rainwater falls on the ground, it causes soil saturation, forcing water to press against the foundation. This causes cracks and gaps to form in walls.

Spare yourself from these problems by fortifying your gutters with excellent gutter guards. Consider installing the innovative Gutter Helmet® gutter protection system. It effectively eliminates clogged gutters even without the hassle of cleaning your gutters.
