4 Signs Your Gutters Are Blocked
Water Spilling Out
If your roof is slowly turning into a makeshift waterfall & a large amount of water is spilling over the sides of your gutters, then it is time to get in the professionals! It’s a key sign that something isn’t right. When your gutters clog up, this pushes the water over the sides of the gutters and then this can cause damage to your garden, home or work environment.
When leaves & debris that have fallen into the gutter become wet from rainfall, it essentially turns into sludge. The water will also make this lot heavier. As a result of the water and debris mixing together, it will push the gutter down and possibly break them. You will then notice the gutters looking saggy and this is an indication that they aren’t serving the purpose they are meant to be.
Presence of Rust or Marks
Water damage is associated with all sorts of problems such as dark marks on the exterior of your home or even rust. If you start noticing rust, dark marks or even mould this could be due to the amount of water that is being held in the gutter and spilling over onto the exterior of the home. If this doesn’t get time to dry this can cause mould coming through into the actual building. Mildew, rust and mould can damage your guttering system and lead to significant issues, when you notice these issues, don’t put them in the back of your mind they won’t go away on their own, make sure you call a professional like us, we can help you get rid of all the gutter worries you may be having.
