Clogged Gutters: The Killer of Foundations
If you have clogged gutters on your home, it’s almost certain that you’ll run into foundation problems. Gutters that are filled with debris and other gunk can’t redirect water away from your home, which results in pooling at the base. The water will saturate the soil to the point of where it puts a great deal of pressure on the foundation walls. This results in the formation of crack and moisture infiltration. Furthermore, moisture that seeps into the walls will deteriorate the material to severely compromise the structural integrity of your entire home. Additionally, once the soil dries and contracts, the foundation will shift and destabilize, causing further damage to your home. Signs of foundation damage are bowed or cracked walls, basement flooding, sagging floors, soil shifting, etc. If you notice any of these signs, immediately contact a professional for further inspection. Keep in mind that a great way to avoid this type of damage altogether is the installation of a high-quality gutter system.
