The solution for keeping an unclogged gutter is simple.
Clogged Gutter Solutions = cleaning your gutters at least twice a year.
Believe it or not, clogged gutters have a much larger impact on your home than just poor drainage. We’re talking extensive interior water damage, ruined landscaping and much more – all of which add up to one costly dent in your home repair budget.
- The number one result of clogged gutters is a damaged foundation. When water isn’t properly dispelled from the home, it could potentially collect right at the edges of your home’s foundation. We’ve all seen the horror stories of homeowners with cracked foundations and waterlogged basement walls – The repair costs associated with this type of foundation damage can be astronomical. If you need a single reason to clean your gutters, this is the one.
- But a damaged foundation isn’t the only result of poorly functioning gutters. Another problem is rotting wood. If you think you can put off gutter cleaning for a couple of weeks, think again. It only takes a couple of HOURS for water to permanently damage a home’s wood siding or fascia. Act now!
- Although more decorative than utilitarian, landscaping can often cost a pretty penny, not to mention a day’s worth of back-breaking work if you do it yourself. Don’t put all of that to waste with poorly directed runoff. The flow from your downspout can be strong at times, literally digging trenches into your pretty flower beds and mulch. If your home gets heavy rainfall, a 6-8 foot downspout extender could be necessary.
All of this to say, if you haven’t looked at your gutters in over 2 years, it’s time to get smart and do your due diligence as a home owner. Your house depends on it (and your savings account too!).
