Your gutter system plays an integral role in protecting your home's foundation. They serve to control the flow of rainwater to protect your home's foundation. If the gutters are clogged, the rain water will overflow and pool along your home's foundation, which can lead to water freezing, then expanding then will lead to cracks in your foundation.
The gutter system serve to control the flow of rainwater to move the water away from your roof's structure. When there is nowhere for water to go, the water will overflow into the roof structure and cause rot. The water may end up leaking inside your home's internal structure or the fascia and causing more damage.
The number one cause of water damage in basements is caused by clogged gutters. When the rain water has nowhere to go, the water will overflow, following the least resistant path. In most cases, the rain water will get inside your soffits, siding, foundation, and all the way to the lowest point in your home, which is your basement. You should be especially aware of this if your home’s landscaping does not slope away from your home.
Another obvious problem that may occur from debris and overflowing rainwater is damage to the gutters themselves. Organic debris and materials will corrode the aluminum that most gutters are made of.
The cost to protect your roof with gutter cleaning services is relatively low in comparison to the average costs of these repairs.
