Ways Blocked Gutters Damage your Home
There are 5 main ways blocked gutters damage your home. When you leave your blocked gutters, it can cause serious issues to your property.
When blocked gutters are left to gather rainwater it can lead to damages to your property. This can happen because water makes it’s way through the roof and eventually onto your ceilings. This leads to dampness on the interior walls and ceilings which brings with it serious health risks. If the blocked gutter is left long enough it can lead to water possibly damaging the strength of the foundations of your home. This makes the job harder and more expensive to fix.
When Blocked gutters can put too much stress on the fascias. The fascias can deteriorate and rot as the blocked gutter are holding more water than they were designed to. This may cause the fascias to be unprotected from large volumes of water, this can cause the value of your home to decrease.
Blocked Gutters put a strain on the screws and brackets that hold the gutter in the right position. When the blocked gutter is left unattended it can cause them to buckle under the weight of rainwater and can cause issues with the roof. Which will be costlier to fix.
When blocked gutters are not fixed it can cause small animals and insects making nests in the mass of debris. This can make the job of unblocking the gutters harder as the animals need to be moved before cleaning begins.
