Have you noticed water streaming from your roof in places it shouldn’t after a rainfall? Do your gutters appear to be bowed down? Do you notice leaves and other debris sticking out the top of your gutters? If your answer to these questions was yes, you know you probably have clogged gutters. Unfortunately, this means it is probably past time to clean your gutters, and when you do clean them, you may have some repair or replacement to complete, as well. With a sigh, you begin to plan the day, what you will wear and how to tackle those clogged gutters.
While you may be tempted to wait until the situation is dire, or if you feel that you haven’t got the time to clean your clogged gutters, you may want to think again. The longer you leave your clogged gutters, the greater your risk of having serious damage to your home. Some of the worst problems that result from clogged gutters include:
- Improper drainage
- Bent gutters
- Roof damage
- Window, door, or wall damage
- Foundation damage
- Damage to the outside walls where the gutters are connected
- Injuries sustained due to gutters that don’t drain properly
You may laugh at the last one, but truthfully, clogged gutters can cause wet, slippery ground underfoot, which results in injuries. Luckily, since we get so little snow here in Charlotte, North Carolina, the only clogged gutter problem you probably won’t have to worry about is the formation of ice dams.
