As you begin your spring gutter cleaning conquest, take mental notes of your home and house gutters. Be aware of any warning signs of water damage. Stay ahead of any potential problems that may occur if your gutters clog. From foundation repair to rotted roof decking, the average price of seamless gutters does not compare to the extensive and costly damage that water can have on your home.
Without a properly functioning gutter system in place, there is nothing keeping rainwater away from your home resulting in possible foundation damage. Pooling water around the base of your home is just asking for expensive stressful issues like basement flooding, mold and structural damage, which can add up fast.
Your gutters are hurting your lawn. Landscaping takes time, effort, and money; three things you don’t want to be wasteful with. With clogged gutters, rainwater overflows with force, pounding against the ground damaging your garden or flower beds below.
Mold & Mildew Removal
For mold to form, there must be a considerable amount of moisture. The humidity and presence of water aid in the process of mold growth. It is important for your home’s gutters and downspouts to direct rainwater coming from the roof safely away from your basement foundation walls. If eavestroughs are not functioning properly, water can sit around the foundation and continue to seep through cracks in the foundation walls, into the basement adding moisture which can lead to extensive and costly remediation and repairs.
Warped & Rotted Siding
Clogged gutters can cause overflowing rainwater to pour down the exterior wall of the home. When siding is continuously exposed to this environment, it can become damaged. Siding is designed to resist rainfall and splashing, it is not however waterproof. The damage can consist of deteriorating sheathing and wooden framing, saturate interior wallboard and cause mold to grow. We know what you’re thinking…and yes, that does sound expensive.
Rotted Roof Decking
Gutter health is vital to roof performance and lifespan. Clogged gutters can cause trapped rainwater to move upward back on to your roof where it finds tiny gaps and holes to infiltrate. When this starts to happen, your wooden components are the first casualty. If your roof decking experiences a constant exposure to this leakage, it will quicken decay and weaken your roof that can be a pricey replacement.
