4 Times Gutter Clogging Can Wreak Havoc with Your Home

Clogged gutters and downspouts are problematic in many ways. Actually, it could ruin your home from the inside out without leaving a trace.

Gutter Clogging

This is why if your gutters are in bad shape, especially due to clogging, All States Home Improvement recommends getting new, seamless ones with Gutter Cap. Otherwise, bottlenecks could lead to any of the following:

1. Rotten Wood

Many parts of your home are made of wood, which is susceptible to moisture damage. That spells disaster when you have a clogged gutter system. When the water couldn’t safely reach the ground due to any blockage, the ponding could cause your wooden fascia boards to rot. The water could also seep into the cracks of your roof, potentially reaching the deck and sucking the life out of its base.

Furthermore, clogged gutters and downspouts could precipitate overflows. Leaving it without a timely gutter installation means rain spillovers could touch many of your home’s no-go zones for water.

2. Damaged Foundation

Speaking of foundation, gutters and downspouts exist to divert a considerable amount of rain away from your home. When water pools around the foundation, it would cause cracks and ultimately rob it of its strength. Ultimately, it would collapse and compromise your home’s structural integrity. And even if it doesn’t fail, a damp foundation promotes mold growth.

3. Ruined Landscaping

When water spills over to the sides of your home, it could also cause soil erosion. In turn, the unbridled overflow could damage your flowerbeds and shrubs. The end result would be disastrous to your home’s curb appeal.

4. Increased Ice Damming

A clogged gutter system doesn’t trigger ice damming per se, but it sure boosts the chances of its occurrence. Failing to drain snowmelt could accelerate the buildup of ice dams. On the other hand, protected, clog-free gutters and downspouts channels water effectively and efficiently, giving you one less ice dam cause to worry about.
