The Cost of Ignoring your Eavestroughs

Leaking gutters and eavestroughs separating from your home can be a costly problem.

The purpose of your eavestrough is to direct water away from your windows, siding, foundation, and other parts of your home.

If your gutters are leaking, that means they are not doing their job properly, which unfortunately could result in:

Water pooling near the foundation, which could cause damage to your foundations or cracks
If water gathers along the sides of your home, this could lead to your basement flooding
Damage to the roof and fascia, which could cause roof problems and wood rot
If your gutters start to sag off or even fall off, this could cause damage to your roof, soffit, and fascia
When water stops flowing inside your eavestroughs and is not draining properly, this could lead to freezing which in turn, clogged gutters, causes overflowing, and could lead to animal and insects infestations
Damaged siding
Soil erosion
Cracked and water-damaged driveways
Stains on concrete and siding
The simple solution is to have your eavestroughs replaced or to do a Gutter Guard Installation in the Kitchener Waterloo Region to prevent leaking gutter causing extreme damage to your home. If the problem got as bad as soil erosion or a cracked foundation this could eventually cause your home to shift and lead to long-term foundation problems. Which are notoriously expensive to fix.

To prevent this type of financial disaster, it is much easier and much more affordable to clean your gutters or have them replaced.

Kitchener – Waterloo Region and the Weather

An additional problem is that Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge go through four different seasons. When the temperatures drop below zero if the water isn’t able to flow the water can turn to ice which will cause the eavestroughs to expand and eventually start to sag off your home. Leaving these issues unattended could end up casuing a very expensive home repair.
