If you haven’t had your gutters cleaned recently, chances are that they are clogged. This is especially true if you have trees close to your house. There are a lot of problems caused by clogged gutters that you should know about. Below are three of them.
Problems Caused by Clogged Gutters 1 – Roof Damage
Where you have clogged gutters, the first area on the exterior of your home that’s going to be affected is the roof. When the rain comes, the clogged gutters don’t have space for the right water flow. This can lead to water pooling around the roof. When this happens, it can get under the shingles and cause water damage.
Problems Caused by Clogged Gutters 2 – Fascia & Soffit Damage
When there is enough debris accumulated in the gutters, they are going to start sagging because of the weight. This could lead to some of the system breaking off, taking the fascia which holds it along for the ride.
Problems Caused by Clogged Gutters 3 – Door, Siding, and Window Damage
When water is pooling in the clogged gutters, it can harm the exterior of your home. When the water isn’t directed away, it can spill over your gutters’ edge and cause your doors, siding, and windows to become damaged.
