Your gutter and roof work in tandem to safely move runoff water away from your home. Most homeowners are completely unaware of some serious and potentially pricey maintenance issues that can be avoided by getting their gutter cleaning done professionally. Here are eight common problems that that we encounter that could easily be avoided.
#1. Ice Dams.
During winter and spring, water that is caught in clogged gutters turns to ice, this causes yet another headache for homeowners and has the potential to cause some serious damage to a home if left unchecked. Your gutter system is designed to prevent this ice forming to start with, to prevent this ice forcing water between the shingles and into your home. In extreme cases the weight of the ice can cause the roof to collapse under the weight to the water and ice
#2. Cracks In Your Home Foundations.
Clogged gutters can adversely affect many parts of your home, your foundations included. Water that flows out of your clogged gutter has to go somewhere, commonly it flows all the way into the house’s foundation. During the winter this water can freeze and expand, resulting in a loss of both integrity and strength of the homes foundations
#3. A Leaky Roof.
Your roof is designed to protect your home for different weather conditions, particularly rain, snow and sun. A clogged gutter results in the water that is to help flow from your roof becoming stuck. This water stays around the roof area and can work its way into your plaster, drywall and insulation.
#4. Fascia And Gutter Damage.
Fascia are the boards mounted below the roof, your gutters are connected to them. Clogged gutters regularly overflow and the water spills into the fascia boards, causing damage to them. As the fascia gets wet they can begin to rot and eventually they may not be strong enough to hold the gutters in place. Clogged systems are also forced to carry far more weight than they were designed to and also become damaged
#5. Devalue Your Home:
Outside the fact that clogged gutters look bad, they can cause severe damage to your home’s roof, walls and foundations. These issues could make selling your home ethically very difficult. Including a regular cleaning in your annual maintenance routine should avoid any such problems occurring.
#6. Damage To The Home’s Interior.
Once this water works its way into the homes wall cavities or ceiling, it will cause staining. Stains on the ceiling can be painted over, the water that seeps into the wall will require more intensive repair. This excessive water can cause mold or rot the wall itself. Water stains or mold can be clear indicators that your or gutters are in maintenance.
#7. Flooded Basements.
One of the most common reasons for flooded basement are clogged gutters. If you find your basement flooded and there is not evidence of a broken pipe, the first thing you should check is the integrity of your gutters.
#8. An Infestation Of Pests.
Mosquitoes, insects and other critters love stagnant water, something that is all but guaranteed if your gutters become clogged. You are providing them with the perfect ground to breed. If you want to avoid thousands of unwelcome guests in your home, get your gutters cleaned regularly.
#9. Ruined Garden Beds.
Water that is overflowing for a clogged gutter has to go somewhere, many people keep flower beds close to their homes. They invest a lot of time and money in maintaining these beds only to have them ruined by a clogged gutter..
#10. Your Home Is Not Safe.
No matter which way you look at it, a clogged gutter system threatens the comfort and safety of everyone in the home. Contaminated water can find its way into your home, water full of organisms and other organic matter, this water has been stuck in your gutter system for so long, it has the potential to cause a plethora of health issues.
