Clogged gutters cause water to overflow and collect around the foundation of your home. During winter months, the moisture can freeze can cause sidewalks and your homes foundation to crack.
Water that backs up in the gutter can also cause moisture damage to the wood in the fascia around your home. When the water backs up in your gutters, it also creates undetected roof leaks that can result in interior damage to walls and ceilings. During winter months, clogged gutters can stop melting roof snow to back up and create roof leaks
The same ill effects of improper gutter drainage can affect property around your home. For example, water that collects on concrete sidewalks and driveways can freeze and, similar to your foundation, will result in cracks and sagging concrete.
The water that pools on this concrete also causes rapid mold and mildew growth during warmer months and ice during colder months. Both of these events result in a slippery hazard for the homeowner and their family. The same runoff can wash away landscaping, cause soil erosion and kill grass and trees due to overwatering.
