The Importance of Preventing Clogged Gutters

Protect Your Home from Rainwater & Costly Damages

The threat that clogged gutters pose to your [seolocation] home is immense. If left unattended to, the cost of repairs can quickly get out of hand. Clogged gutters severely limit the redirection of water and will lead to damage to your foundation and even your landscape and patio installations. At See-Thru Windows & Doors, we want to help you avoid the damages that clogged gutters can cause, which is why we carry the high-quality gutter protection system from LeafSlugger®. By investing in our outstanding gutter guards, you will be saving yourself a lot of grief further down the road and avoid cleaning out clogged gutters.

How Clogged Gutters Affect Your Home

  • Basement Flooding: Any water running into a clogged gutter system has to go somewhere, even if it’s not the designated point. This means that it will oven run over the sides and fall to the base of your home where it will pool. Once there, it can infiltrate your home through walls, bad window seals, or any other opening typically resulting in basement flooding.
  • Foundation Damage: One of the worst outcomes of clogged gutters is foundation damage, which occurs when water is allowed to pool at the base of your home. The water saturates the soil around your foundation to the point of expansion. This puts large amounts of stress on the foundation walls causing them to cracks. Further damage is done when the soil dries and contracts destabilizing your home.
  • Erode Landscaping: The constant flow of water over your landscaping will cause erosion. Furthermore, damage to your patio, carport, and pavers can occur in the same way that it can to your home’s foundation.
  • Ice Dams: The formation of ice dams occurs when water cannot properly flow of your roof during freezing winter months. Clogged gutters have a penchant for creating ice dams by causing frozen buildup in your gutter system which then backs up onto your roof.
