Gutters Prevent Many Issues
Gutters are an integral part of your roofing system. While a roof protects your home or business from water infiltration, gutters are responsible for collecting and channeling water away from the structure. In this way, the flow of water off your roof is controlled and water cannot pool around the foundation and cause other issues. This is crucial because a clogged or ineffective gutter system can lead to many larger problems, such as:
- Damage to fascia boards. Fascia boards support the gutter system and are often made of wood. When gutters overflow or are not present, the boards start to deteriorate and rot.
- Siding damage. If a home has wood siding, overflowing gutters (or no gutters at all) can cause siding to warp and rot. Other siding materials may be stained by water running down the sides of the home.
- Damage to windows and doors. In the same way that water overflow damages soffit and fascia, you also risk damage and rot around doors and windows without a properly functioning gutter system.
- Washed-out landscaping. When gutters clog or are damaged, overflowing water often lands on flowers, shrubs and trees around the home, harming them and leading to water erosion.
- Basement flooding. A clogged or leaky gutter allows water to run down the walls of the house and find its way into any small foundation cracks, leading to basement flooding.
- Cracked foundations. When overflowing water saturates the soil around a foundation, it creates a tremendous amount of pressure on the side of the home. Over time, this force can cause basement and lower walls to bow and crack.
