Don’t overlook an important part of your home: gutters. Good gutters are designed to divert rain and water away from your home. Unfortunately, at some point, gutters become clogged. They fill with debris from trees, clog with snow, or jam due to poor downspouts. Read on to learn how Cox Roofing, trusted Baltimore roofers, stop clogged gutters for good.
Benefits of a Functional Gutter System
A functional gutter system helps prevent:
- Water damage to your roof, which results in mold and the deterioration of the roof.
- Damaged window sills and interior walls due to condensation.
- Basement flooding and damage to your home’s foundation due to water pooling along the foundation.
Damage from Clogged Gutters
Clogged gutters cause different problems, including damage to various parts of your home. Look out for:
Roof leaks result from pooling water that can’t drain into the gutters because they are full. Leaky roofs cause attic and ceiling damage as well as interior mold and mildew issues.
Standing water causes foundation damage and possibly a variety of health issues. Water that sits for an extended period is a health risk because it’s the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and parasites.
Basements provide a good environment for mold and mildew to thrive. Mold causes several health issues, including throat and eye irritation, coughing and wheezing, skin irritation, and other health concerns.
