Your home is certainly one of your greatest assets and protecting it is a priority. Not getting the inside of your gutters cleaned at least once a year can create the following issues which could cause you thousands of dollars in repair bills:
- Water leaks through spike and bracket holes and rots fascia boards
- Water gets into the attic and causes mold and mildew
- Overflowing waters could cause flooding in your basement
- Clogged gutters with alot of debris and water can fall off your house
Of all of these issues, the potentially most damaging are foundation problems. Dirty gutters can result in clogs and improper drainage which can lead to continued water leakage down the side of your home and into your foundation creating cracks in the walls and allowing water to leak in. The problem can be even worse when the ground freezes and then expands constantly. Once water leaks into your basement, mold and mildew problems can occur bringing potential damage to your belongings. Improper drainage from debris buildup can also cause icicles, which can cause a dangerous situation.
