Consequences of Unmaintained Eavestroughs
- Foundation Damage: Damage to your foundation is one of the biggest consequences of having a less than adequate rainwater management system. Water begins pooling at the base of your home and can cause severe damage to your foundation.
- Eroding Landscape: When water is unable to be redirected away from your home, it collects in your yard and wreaks havoc on your landscaping. Before you know it, your yard will succumb to erosion and be covered in disfiguring cracks and holes.
- Accumulation of Moisture: Clogged gutters are particularly susceptible to an accumulation of moisture that leads to festering mold, plant growth, and pest accumulation in the eavestrough system.
- Fascia Rot: Fascia rot is another consequence of clogged gutters. When water is unable to run through the trough, it overflow from the sides. Constantly exposing your fascia to such on onslaught will cause wood rot, which can lead to a myriad of other problems.
- Basement Flooding: When water is allowed to pool at the base of your home, it will find its way into your basement. This is hazardous for a number of reasons. First of all, if it’s found your way to the basement, you can almost be certain foundation damage has already occurred. Secondly, basement flooding is one of the major causes of a mold infestation.
