Poor gutter drainage leaves your foundation, basement, landscaping, & more vulnerable to water damage
Did you know leaking and damaged gutters can put your entire home at risk, from its roof right down to its foundation? Failing gutters lead to drainage problems that allow moisture to enter your home and potentially damage and weaken the surrounding structures, including your home's foundation.
Some drainage issues are easy to spot, such as frequently clogged gutters. Others are much less obvious, which means they can cause serious damage before they ever make it on your radar. Luckily, there are signs that you may have a damaged or faulty gutter drainage system.
Signs of a Faulty Gutter System
- Gushing gutters and downspouts
- Basement leaks
- Foundation cracks
- Mold & mildew
- Musty attic smells
- Wood rot
- Interior water stains
- Damaged roofing & siding
- Landscaping disruption
- & more
Common Gutter Drainage Problems
When it comes to maintaining a safe, stable home, proper water management is essential. Your gutters and drainage system play a critical role in protecting the integrity of your home's foundation, basement, landscaping, and more.
Ineffective gutter drainage puts your home at significant risk for costly damage, especially during inclement weather conditions. Some common problems caused by leaky, clogged gutters and insufficient drainage include:
Pooling water around the home can cause wet basements, foundations, and crawl spaces. Excess water may also drain into house, causing leaks or flooding in the basement.
When excess water from gutters and downspouts dumps into your yard, it can cause damaging erosion to occur. Water runoff washes away soil and landscaping material, which could potentially allow channels and gullies to form in your yard.
Water gushing or spilling over the top of gutters could indicate that leaves and other debris have clogged the tray or downspout. It may also be a sign of an undersized or improperly pitched gutter system.
Insects & Pests
Pests and insects such as mosquitos, gnats, cockroaches, and even birds looking for a new home tend to gravitate toward open, clogged gutters. Not only does this cause further damage to your gutter system but gives insects and pests easier access to your home.
Heavy rainstorms, high winds, snow, and other severe weather events can harm your gutters. Hanging, sagging, or damaged gutters impact their ability to properly drain and divert water away from your home.
Cracks & Holes
As weather and temperatures fluctuate, your gutters may begin to crack or form holes that cause leaks to occur. Certain areas are especially vulnerable to the formation of cracks and holes, including around gutter joints, braces, and nails.
