Gutters are usually one of the most overlooked causes of home foundation damage and the solution is very simple -- a regularly scheduled cleaning. Particularly here in North Carolina, it’s common for gutters to fill up with pine straw, along with other leaves, dirt and debris.
When gutters get clogged, water flows over their walls and runs down along the sides of buildings. Instead of being diverted away from a structure and its foundation, as effectively working gutters are supposed to, the water actually can seep into walls and foundations. Standing water that collects near buildings can also contribute to musty walls, unplanned water runoff in landscaping and increased presence of unwanted insects, such as mosquitoes.
Another problem caused by clogged gutters is standing water in the gutters themselves. When rain is unable to pass easily through the gutter, it winds up stagnating in the gutter spout. This can lead to damage to the structure where it is connected to the gutter and to rust and deterioration of the gutter itself.
The best way to enjoy piece of mind, efficient gutters and healthy buildings, is to have gutters cleaned twice each year. It’s easy to include a gutter cleaning in a scheduled visit.
