common gutter problems

Functioning gutters play a significant role in protecting your home from water damage. If your gutters don’t drain properly, clog frequently, or have stopped working, you’re putting your home at risk. Poorly installed and ineffective gutter systems can lead to clogged gutters, water damage, insect infestation, and ladder-related injuries.

Clogged Gutters

As leaves, twigs, pine needles, and other debris flow through your gutter system, they can accumulate over time, leading to clogs in your gutters. Clogged gutters don’t drain properly and can back up your entire system, eventually causing your gutters to stop working altogether.

Water Damage

Water damage causes millions of dollars worth of property damage each year. As water pools around the base of your home and window wells, it can lead to flooded basements, cracked or settled foundations, rotting and discolored siding and windows, and erosion of your landscaping.

Pest Infestation

As leaves, twigs, and other debris collect in your gutters, clogs form, which can also lead to stagnant water. This creates the perfect breeding ground for insects and other unwanted pests. After making a home in your gutters, pests can find their way to the inside of your home.

Ladder-Related Injuries

Every year, thousands of people suffer from ladder-related injuries. When your gutters clog, you’ll need to climb a ladder to remove the collected debris. And when you’re up on that ladder cleaning your gutters, you open yourself up to the possibility of a ladder-related injury.
