Here are just a few of the issues that you might face from not addressing clogged gutters:
- Leaky gutters: Clogged gutters are a very common cause of a very expensive problem around your home; water damage. Since water gets backed up from a leaves and debris stuck inside your gutters, it can build up and cause damage around the foundation of your house, leak through roofs causing internal damage and can even rot parts of the structure.
- Cracked foundations: When water from uncleaned or unmaintained gutters sits on the foundation of your home, it can cause weakening and cracks in the foundation. This can make the home’s structure unstable, dangerous and costly to repair.
- Leaking roofs: If water can’t flow through your gutters, it can back up against the house and lead to major ceiling and wall damage.
- Landscaping issues: Excess water that isn’t draining properly can erode your soil and kill new plants, grass, and trees.
- Insects: Insects flock to moisture, so having clogged gutters means your house might attract bugs that can eat through wood and cause problems for your home.
