What Happens If You Never Clean Your Gutters?
Think about the last time you cleaned your gutters. Has it been a while? Is it a chore you’re less than excited about doing? At ABC Seamless of Anchorage, we don’t blame you. Climbing a ladder to clear out your gutters can be a tough job. However, as much of a hassle as this task can be, it is absolutely important that your gutters function. Any clogs in the system can lead to water overflowing onto your home where it can do a considerable amount of damage.
How Clogged Gutters Can Lead to Damage
Rainwater and snowmelt that is unable to flow through your gutter system can spill out and inflict costly damage on your:
- Roof – Water can pool on your roof if not drained properly. All that moisture can then seep into the shingles and erode the underlayment of the roof.
- Siding – Water can stain siding if it is allowed to flow down the exterior walls. It can also seep in between the seams where it can rot the siding and allow mold and mildew to grow.
- Landscaping – If you take pride in your yard’s landscaping, you certainly don’t want rain to cascade off clogged gutters and wash away all your hard work.
- Foundation – In a worst-case scenario, excessive rainwater can seep into the ground where it can erode your home’s foundation.
