Greater Green Bay clogged gutters

Clogged gutters cause damage to your fascia, siding, and roof, and attract insects and pests.

As a homeowner, you know how important it is to keep your property in the best shape possible. Unfortunately, one area that is easy to overlook is your home's gutter system.

Leaking and damaged gutters can put your entire home at risk, from the roof right down to the foundation. We're not just talking about exterior damage either. Failing gutters lead to drainage problems that allow moisture to enter your home and potentially damage walls, ceilings, floors, and more. Worse yet, water damage can weaken vital structural components of your home, including the foundation.

The good news? Understanding common drainage issues can help you protect your home. While some drainage problems are easy to spot, such as frequently clogged gutters, others aren't so obvious. That makes them more likely to cause serious damage before they ever make it on your radar, which is why it's critical to recognize the key signs of a damaged or faulty gutter drainage system.

Signs of a Faulty Gutter System

  • Gushing gutters and downspouts
  • Basement leaks
  • Foundation cracks
  • Mold & mildew
  • Musty attic smells

Common Gutter Drainage Problems

As mentioned above, proper water management is essential to protecting the integrity of your home's foundation, basement, landscaping, and more. And while knowing the signs of a drainage problem can help keep damage at bay, it also helps to know what causes the problems in the first place. Learn more about the common issues caused by leaky, clogged gutters and insufficient drainage below.

  • Water Damage: Pooling water around the home can cause wet basements, foundations, and crawl spaces. Excess water may also drain into the house, causing leaks or flooding in the basement.
  • Erosion: Damaging erosion can occur when excess water from gutters and downspouts is dumped into your yard. Water runoff washes away soil and landscaping material, which could potentially allow channels and gullies to form in your yard.
  • Clogged Gutters: Water gushing or spilling over the top of gutters could indicate that leaves and other debris have clogged the tray or downspout. It may also be a sign of an undersized or improperly pitched gutter system.
  • Insects & Pests: Pests and insects such as mosquitos, gnats, cockroaches, and even birds looking for a new home tend to gravitate toward open, clogged gutters. This can cause further damage to your gutter system and gives insects and pests easier access to the interior of your home.
  • Broken Gutters: Heavy rainstorms, high winds, snow, and other severe weather events can harm your gutters. Hanging, sagging, or damaged gutters impact their ability to properly drain and divert water away from your home.
  • Cracks & Holes: As weather and temperatures fluctuate, your gutters may begin to crack or form holes that cause leaks to occur. Certain areas are especially vulnerable to the formation of cracks and holes, including around gutter joints, braces, and nails.
