A properly functioning gutter system directs water away from the foundation of your home. However, when leaves, twigs and other debris accumulate in the area, the rain that hits your roof will settle, eventually spilling over the sides of your gutters. Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc. explains how misdirected water from your gutters can compromise your home’s structural integrity.

Foundation

Clogged gutters can put your home’s foundation at risk. When water puddles around your house, it will saturate the soil and put enormous pressure on the side of the structure. Over time, this can cause the basement and lower walls to push inward or crack.

Additionally, as the water drains off, it may erode the soil as well. This can result in foundation settlement. You might also notice uneven floors and cracks in walls and chimneys.

Basement

Note that even the smallest cracks in your walls allow water into your home. When this happens, your basement is susceptible to flooding. The damp area can also serve as a breeding ground for mold.

Landscape and Other Exterior Components

The water from your overflowing gutter system will land on flower beds, small trees or shrubs around your home. It can also damage the siding material, which can compromise your home’s curb appeal. By getting in touch with a reputable contractor to install gutter covers over your existing gutters, clogging will be an issue no longer.

How Gutter Helmet® Can Benefit You

With Gutter Helmet®, your gutter system will be clog-free through all seasons. This gutter protection system has a unique nose-forward design and a ribbed surface that utilizes the principle of surface tension. This means water adheres to the textured surface and moves directly to a small slit. Leaves and other debris are also swept over the sides to fall to the ground.
