One other job we tackle here is gutter cleaning. Getting the ladder out to dig leaves and sludge from the gutters isn’t an entertaining job. However, homeowners will know that it is worth the hassle. The reason why is that attending to these systems can prevent a host of issues. Your downspouts and gutters are meant to redirect the water flow from your house. A blockage can prevent this, therefore resulting in lots of damage.

Look after your foundations

Roof cleaning CobhamFoundation problems are common with blocked gutters. You may own a 2,000-square foot house. If you do, each inch of rain converts to over 1,200 gallons of water that pours down the roof. A working gutter can convey this through your downspout. As a result it will take it away from your home.

Sadly, a gutter with a blockage has the opposite effect. Here water can build up in the gutters until it spills over the sides. From there, it shall pour down your walls. When it pools at the foundation, erosion can appear. This undermines your walls, and also causes the foundations to crack and settle.

Internal problems

The inside of your house isn’t safe here either. In some cases the water can soak into the walls themselves. If it builds up in the gutter it could rot the wooden fascia boards that you mount the guttering to. This is what allows moisture to enter your property. When the winter arrives, ice dams are able to drive snow melt beneath the shingles. Water in the property can cause mould and damp, rot timbers, and damage the contents.
