Maintaining your Gutters
What Happens if You Don’t Clean Your Eavestroughs?
If your gutters are leaking or if you see that they’re clogged, that means they are not doing their job of redirecting rainwater from your home. Left unresolved, this could result in:
- Water pooling near the foundation, which could cause damage to your foundations or cracks
- Basement flooding
- Damage to the roof and fascia, which could cause roof problems and wood rot
- Damage to your roof, soffit, and fascia if your gutter begin to sag
- Animal and insect infestations as a result of clogged gutters
- Damaged siding
- Soil erosion
- Cracked and water-damaged driveways
- Stains on concrete and siding
The Solution to Clogged Gutters
Your eavestroughs, like anything in your home, require regular maintenance. Investing in regular professional gutter cleaning will ensure water flows away from your home.
Professional Gutter Guard Installation
The most long-term and simple solution to clogged or leaking gutters is to have your eavestroughs replaced or to opt for a full Gutter Guard installation to prevent leaks and extreme damage to your home. If left unresolved, the problem may progress to soil erosion around your home, or a cracked foundation. These issues could eventually cause your home to shift and lead to long-term foundation problems.
To prevent long-term damage, it’s important to regularly clean your gutters or have them replaced when needed, or to have gutter guards installed on your eavestroughs.
Eavestroughs and Gutter Guards: Built to Last in Ontario Weather
An additional cause to damaged or leaking gutters is that Ontario sees extreme weather shifts. When the temperatures drop below zero, ice forms in your eavestrough and water isn’t able to flow causing the eavestroughs to expand and eventually start to sag off your home. Leaving these issues unattended could end up causing a very expensive home repair.
