Your gutters serve one primary purpose: To divert water away from your home to prevent damage. When your gutters aren’t working properly, water can pool around your home causing major damage. Failing gutters can cause mold in your home’s structure, water damage to the roof and home structure, and damage to your landscaping. More frighteningly, failing gutters can cause water to pool around the base of your home, where it can cause extensive foundation damage.
So is your gutter system doing its job of keep water away from your home?
A simple walk around your home, particularly after a rainstorm, can help you detect failing gutters. When your gutters aren’t working properly, you might see:
- Water pooling around your home’s foundation,
- Water pouring from your gutters during a rainstorm,
- Eroded or washed-away landscaping,
- Sagging or cracked gutters,
- Mold or mildew along fascia, your siding or your roof,
- Flooding in your basement, damp basement walls or water stains on basement walls.
