HomeCraft Gutter Protection™ FAQs
Gutters can overflow for several reasons, including clogging from leaves, debris, and other material, poor slope or pitch of the gutters, broken or damaged gutters, and downspout blockages. Note that installing gutter guards can prevent debris buildup and keep your gutters clog-free.
Overflowing gutters can cause damage to the property and its surroundings. Some of the potential consequences include water damage to the roof, walls, and foundation of the property. Also, overflowing gutters can cause soil erosion and damage to landscaping, pests, and insects attracted to standing water, stains, discoloration on exterior walls, and more.
If gutters don’t drain properly, the water that accumulates can cause damage to the property and its surroundings. Standing water in gutters increases the risk of ice dam formation in cold climates. This can lead to leaks, water damage, and other problems.
