The most common gutter problem that homeowners face is congestion. Once your gutter system becomes clogged, it won’t be able to properly drain rainwater away from your home, increasing the chances of water damage to your home exterior and landscaping. There are many things that can cause blockages in your gutters–and you’ll want to be aware of them to ensure you can get the most effective solution. One of the leading home exterior renovation companies in the area, Allstar Construction, shares more of what you need to know.
- Leaves and Other Debris. Open gutters are prone to clogging because of debris buildup. If left unchecked, the accumulation will cause rainwater to back up and flow over the sides instead of being drained through the downspout. In some cases, the water can even seep through the fascia board and create leaks. Additionally, the extra weight caused by debris puts strain on your gutter system, eventually leading them to pull away from the roofline.
- Bird’s Nests. Birds are not exactly picky about where they roost–just as long as it’s high enough that predators can’t reach them. Most of the time, they make trees their home, but sometimes, they take a liking to your gutters. The twigs, leaves, and other organic materials that birds use to build their nests can clog your system. All this debris, coupled with excess moisture, can break down into black, sticky sludge over time, making it difficult to get rid of. Fortunately, Allstar Construction, one of the area’s premier gutter and roofing contractors, is just one phone call away. We’ll help you deal with gutter clogs via our high-quality solution.
The Best Way to Prevent Gutter Congestion
Allstar Construction offers high-quality leaf and debris protection systems that can help keep your gutters clean and clog-free for longer. Their filters ensure that only rainwater can enter the system–everything else (such as leaves, pine needles, and other loose debris) are shed to fall harmlessly to the ground. Because they also cover the entirety of your gutters, they also discourage birds from building nests inside the system.
