The Dangers of Clogged Gutters

Too often gutters are overlooked and cleaning them is another item on the never ending to-do list.  Gutters are an out-of-sight-out-of-mind part of your home — you only think about them when it’s raining and they overflow, and that’s not the time to clean them.

Before you know it, another month has gone by and they are still clogged and overflowing.  We sometimes hear from homeowners, “what’s the big deal – it’s just rain.”  Unfortunately, left unchecked, rain can lead to serious and expensive home repairs.

Well-performing gutters help avoid foundation damage, siding damage and roof damage.  The main purpose of working gutters and downspouts is to channel water away from the home and foundation.  When gutters are overflowing, water can gather near the foundation, and over time this causes cracks and weakens footings.  This can compromise the structural integrity and lead to settling, or water seeping into your interior spaces.  Plus, insects like termites love moisture and having wet ground near your house in never a good idea.

These are some of the reasons so many people turn to the GutterShutter gutter system.  Our patented and award-winning design keeps your gutters and downspouts from becoming clogged.  Plus, our six-inch gutter handles the large volume of water that comes from heavy downpours.

Your home is likely your biggest investment; be sure you are doing all you can to protect it and prevent costly damage and repairs.  Plus, with the GutterShutter gutter protection system, you won’t have to clean your gutters, ever!  You get to stay off the dangerous ladder, and free up time you used to spend cleaning gutters.

Gutters & Fire Resistance

gutter1

As we approach summer, it’s important to start thinking about outdoor fire hazards and how to prevent them. Did you know that unguarded gutters can pose major fire risks during dry periods?

Gutters play a role in providing a means of collecting and directing rainwater from the roof into downspouts, and then away from the house. This helps reduce the amount of water in the soil that can enter the crawlspace or basement and result in moisture-related performance problems such as those from mold and wood decay fungi.

Combustible debris such as leaves and pine needles can accumulate in gutters, especially from nearby or overhanging trees. Due to difficulty in accessing upper stories of a home, gutters two and three floors high are even more problematic, since they will be difficult to clean out on a regular basis. If ignited, combustible debris in the gutter will expose the edge of the roof covering, typically the fascia and or roof sheathing. Depending on the condition of the wood and presence (or absence) of metal flashing at the edge of the roof, debris in the gutter may make it easier for fire to enter the attic. Metal flashing at the roof edge will provide additional protection to the roof edge and therefore is a recommended detail.
