6 Benefits of cleaning your Gutters
A clean gutter will control the flow of rainwater off the roof, through a channel and down a downspout directed away from the exterior of the home and its foundation.
If the home’s gutters are clogged or broken, it will remain in the gutter system until it overflows onto and off the roof. Which is the number 1 cause for premature failure of your roof around those areas.
DAMAGE TO ROOFING
The rainwater should flow from the bottom of the roof, into the gutters and down the downspout. If the gutters are clogged the rainwater will begins to pool inside. It will also start to collect on the bottom of the roof. This will damage the roofing shingles and lead to cracks forming. Cracks in the roof can lead to leaks in the home’s ceiling which means leaks in the interior. Repairing a damaged roof or rotted ceiling can be extremely exhausting and expensive.
Homeowners that have dealt with a basement flooding know it’s no fun at all. Clogged gutters are a common cause for basement flooding. The rainwater will overflow from the gutter and pool at the base of the home just above the basement. Over time, the foundation will wear down and water that collects above the basement will begin to leak into the basement. This can lead to mold or mildew growth and will destroy paint, carpet and any other furniture or decor in the basement.
The rainwater that can destroy or flood a basement can also destroy the actual foundation of a home. A home with an unstable foundation is not safe to live in. You will also find that to repair a home’s foundation is a measurable expense and a necessity for any hope of selling a home in the future. Home’s with unstable foundations will not pass an inspection.
