Why Standing Water is Bad for your Gutters

Gutters often get ignored by homeowners. Many people assume that if they don’t see any problems on the surface everything is fine. That’s mistake number 1! Gutters are a vital component to the overall health of your home. If you ignore them, and they stop functioning correctly, be sure to expect some problems in the near future. The main job of a gutter system is to redirect damaging water as far away from your home, and its foundation as possible. If your gutters are clogged or damaged – the water might end up inside your home.

Many homeowners have standing water in their gutters; which isn’t a good thing.  Ordinary gutters trap rainwater, leaves, debris, and twigs which causes gutters to get clogged. This also creates dams that hinder water from flowing away from your house. Clogs are a big problem because they lead to water spilling over the top of your gutters. This undirected water then leads to surface erosion, damage to your landscaping and even costly foundation damage. If that’s not bad enough, clogged gutters can also lead to flooded basements and crawlspaces which can lead to the growth of dangerous mold and mildew. Also, damage to the wood of your fascia and soffit is very likely.
