Common Gutter Problems

Common Gutter Problems

Gutter problems can cause homeowners thousands of dollars, even if it’s considered minor water damage. In the U.S, 98% of basements are affected by water damage at some point during their lifetime. Erosion, foundation damage, landscape disruption, and much more can happen to your home without the proper precautions. If your gutter system doesn’t drain properly, gets backed up often, or has simply stopped working altogether, your home is at a major risk for damage.

Clogged Gutters

Common gutter issues, such as clogged, leaky, gutters, can lead to further damage if not addressed properly.

With a poorly installed gutter, your home could be at risk for:

  • Water damage to your basement, crawl space, window wells, & foundation due to pooling water
  • Water damage to your roof, interior ceilings & walls
  • Gutter clogging from pine needles, leaves, & debris
  • Insects & pests making a home in your gutters
  • Broken, holes, leaks & lawn erosion

Gutter problems can cause you the headache of a lifetime, but can be avoided in just a few simple steps with Gutter Shutter!

Protect your roof, basement, and foundation from the following unpleasant gutter problems:

Leaking Gutters
  • Water damage accounts for millions of dollars worth of property damage per year. Wet basements, crawl spaces, and foundations can be caused by pooling water around the home. Window wells, commonly installed around basement windows, are another place where water can easily flood if the well is not covered and if there is no proper draiange system put into place. This ultimately can decrease curb appeal, home value, and the indoor air quality in your home!
  • The Gutter Shutter® Solution: Gutter Shutter’s gutter guard system will help protect your basement, crawl space, window wells, and foundation from pooling water, making your home healthier and safer, especially for residents with allergies or asthma. Gutter Shutter will also protect your ceilings, interior walls, and lawn from the water damage caused by clogged, ineffective gutters.
Clogged Leaves
  • Gutter clogging may occur due to leaves, pine needles, debris, twigs, and even larger items like bird's nests or branches blocking your gutters. This prevents proper drainage and can back up your entire system, which can lead to it not working altogether.
  • The Gutter Shutter Solution: Gutter Shutter's innovative 6" gutter guards use the concept of surface tension to keep debris out, while still allowing 20% more water to flow than other 5" residential gutters. Gutter Shutter is also guaranteed to never clog.
Pests in Gutters
  • Pests and insects gravitate towards open, clogged gutters. When mosquitoes, cockroaches, gnats, and even birds start making homes in your clogged gutters, it's not only causing damage but giving pests easier access inside of your home.
