Rainy weather in the spring brings greener lawns and helps plants grow. However, it also presents issues for many homeowners if their gutters aren’t in good shape. Often people don’t realize how important it is to keep their gutters clean of debris so that water flows through them smoothly. At Cox Roofing we have the solution for you! If you need roofing contractors in Howard County to install new gutters, please read on to learn about our services.
Damage Caused by Clogged Gutters
If your gutters are clogged, water collects in them and has no way to escape. The heavy weight of the water and debris can cause the gutters to pull away from the roof. When this happens, water collects at the foundation of your home and the foundation may begin to rot.
When the water cannot drain off of your roof, it starts to seep inside of the house. Additionally, pooling water on roofs and in gutters is a problem when it comes to insect infestations. Standing water in your gutters and on your roof is the perfect place for mosquitoes to breed.
