Like anything made or manufactured, there will always be a need and time for replacement. Damaged, clogged, or ineffective gutters can cause the following problems:
Accumulation of Debris – Debris, such as leaves, rocks, tree branches, pine needles and dirt can matt-down and become a solid sheet. Accumulated debris can also cause a fire hazard during dry seasons. We have seen gutters clog with material, and cause roofing to wear prematurely under the shingles.
Crawlspace Flooding – This is not as uncommon as some would think. Water easily overflows from clogged gutters and can flood crawlspaces and cause cracked foundations. Walls can also lean while soil erodes from water that has no proper drain off.
Mold – Mold and mildew love wet conditions, and will easily grow where there is a constant supply of dampness. As everyone knows, mold can be harmful to a person’s health.
Soil Erosion – Soil erosion makes it easier for foundations to give way. Then, expensive repairs can empty your wallet as a result.
Dry-rot on Fascia Boards and Roofs – Fascia boards look unsightly if the wood is rotting. Not to mention, they can also devalue a property. It is the same with roofs suffering from rain damages.
