The rain gutters on your home are designed to direct rainwater from the roof to the downspouts so that the water can drain away from the foundation.
Over time, gutters become clogged with leaves, twigs, dirt, shingles, the kids’ toys, tennis balls, and lots of other stuff. The debris can become heavy and cause the gutters to sag or even collapse due to the weight. Clogged gutters prevent water from flowing to the downspouts. When water is trapped in gutters, it can overflow and end up where it’s not supposed to be. This can cause damage to landscaping and, even worse, the foundation. The water can settle around the base of your home and begin to seep into cracks and crevices in your foundation, which jeopardizes the integrity of the foundation. If the water freezes and expands during the cold winter months, it can cause long-term damage to the foundation of your home.
