Cleaning gutters is likely not an activity that you look forward to as a homeowner. But, keeping your home’s roof, exterior and foundation free of water, debris and other unwanted materials is extremely important.
Gutters are designed to collect rainwater from the roof and carry it away from the foundation of the home. Gutters and downspouts need to be clear in order to carry out this task. Having clogged gutters could cause an overflow of water. This would cause water to go over the side of the house. Therefore, causing damage to your walls and possibly foundation damage.
If the water has nowhere to go, it will naturally fill up the gutter and eventually overflow. This overflow may damage the foundation of the home – and it won’t stop there! Depending on the amount of water leaking, it could even seep into your basement or crawl space. Foundation repair alone could cost upward of $10,000! In addition, if water leaks into your basement, your home could be at risk of mold.
Clogged gutters can also pose a weight strain on your roof and the fascia (the boards behind the gutters). If the gutters are too full, they could possibly collapse off the roof of your home. Therefore, causing damage to the shingles of the roof and the exterior of the house.
