What’s Wrong With Clogged Gutters?
Ordinary gutters capture rainwater, but they also collect leaves, twigs and other organic debris that can become clogged and impede the flow of water.
Clogs cause water to spill over your gutter and pool on the ground below, resulting in damage to your shrubs, surface erosion, and moisture seepage into your foundation causing cracks and basement flooding. And don’t underestimate the danger of clogs attracting pests. Some critters are attracted to the acorns and seeds that can collect in your gutters. Insects, mold and bacteria can grow in standing water and wet clogs.
