Signs Of Gutter Problems
Every time it rains or snows, you rely on your gutters and downspouts to take water from your roof and move it away from your home. However, if your gutters aren’t doing their job due to clogs or damage, you could end up with water in places it shouldn’t be, such as in your basement. At Gutter Filters of Utah, we can provide you with gutter guards that eliminate clogs and other problems. Here are a few signs of gutter problems to look out for on your home!
During a heavy rainstorm, it’s not uncommon to see water pouring over the edge of your gutters. You might know that your gutters are clear from leaves and other debris, but the gutters simply aren’t able to keep up with the amount of water. If you notice overflowing gutters on your house during a normal rain, this could be a sign of a clog or another issue, and the water has nowhere to go but over the edge.
Gutters are designed to allow for a certain amount of weight, but if they become clogged with leaves, pine needles, and other debris, they could begin to sag, especially during a heavy downpour. This sagging can lead to the gutter fasteners pulling away from your home, allowing water to get in behind and affect your home’s soffit and fascia. The wood of the soffit and fascia can begin to rot due to water damage, leading to a host of other issues.
A Flooded Basement
As a homeowner, you never want to find water in your basement. When your gutters and downspouts fail due to improper drainage, water could end up flowing back towards your home’s foundation and into the basement. Even if you have a sump pump to deal with this issue, water inside your house can cause lots of damage in a short amount of time.
Exterior Water Spots
When water overflows from your gutters, it ends up running down the outside of your home, instead of the downspout. This can create unsightly water spots on the exterior of your house, affecting the paint or siding. While exterior paint and siding are made to withstand the elements, if exposed to too much moisture, it can begin to peel or deteriorate, affecting its integrity.
