How Clogged Gutters Can Damage Your Home
Clogged gutters are more common in the fall and winter. They’re far from a simple nuisance, though; they can do real and extensive damage to your home if you leave them unaddressed. This inherent risk is one of the reasons you should invest in gutter protection systems.
The gutter is responsible for diverting the water coming from the roof and preventing it from pooling near or on the home’s foundation. When a blockage happens, water will spill over the sides of the gutter, eventually ending up on the foundation itself. Constant exposure to water will cause the foundation to crack, and in extreme cases, may also cause the foundation to collapse.
Apart from the foundation, spills coming from the gutters will also cause continuous damage to the fascia boards, the part of the roof that actually holds the gutters in place. Because they’re usually made of wood, they will deteriorate easily when exposed to water. Installing gutter guards will prevent this from happening. Gutter guards prevent debris from entering the gutters in the first place.
