What Happens If Your Gutters Are Clogged
Basically, four things can (and will) happen because of clogged gutters and every one of them is expensive to fix:
- Foundation Problems and Leaks
- Roof and Wood Damage
- Increased Number of Pests
- Damaged Landscaping and Outdoor Areas
Foundation Problems and Leaks
When gutters are clogged they overflow. All of that water that was supposed to be carried by the gutters and downspouts away from your home is now pooling up near your home’s foundation. This water can penetrate your foundation causing leaks and flooding in basement areas as well as break down your foundation which will cause cracking.
Roof and Wood Damage
Clogged gutters trap water which will damage the edge of your roof, shingles, fascia, and flashings. They can also cause water damage to walls, windows and doors when they overflow.
Increased Number of Pests
Insects like mosquitoes and wasps as well as rodents and birds love the gunky water that gets trapped in a clogged gutter. They are attracted to it where they will multiply and make it their home. Pests like rodents and birds can also enter your attic through damaged areas.
Damaged Landscaping and Outdoor Areas
Overflowing clogged gutters can damage plants and shrubs by breaking branches and limbs and cause things like root rot and fungus diseases. All of this water can also destroy walkways, decks, and patios. And erosion can carry away your mulch and gravel.
Why Hire A Professional To Clean Your Gutters
There are three main reasons to hire a professional for gutter cleaning in Atlanta:
- Minimizes Risk
- Cost Effective
- Quality Results
Gutter cleaning is hazardous and challenging when done correctly. Working on ladders and roofs is something most homeowners are not comfortable with, not to mention the typical heat, humidity, and the dirty job of cleaning out gutters and downspouts. Hiring a professional from Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning for your next cleaning saves you the headaches and problems of trying to do it yourself and the risk of falling off a ladder.
Hiring an insured pro, like Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning, also protects you from dealing with or paying for damage or injuries that the homeowner could incur while doing the job.
The average cost for a gutter cleaner in Atlanta is $159 from Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning. Your cost will vary based on a number of factors including the square footage of your home, the number of stories, how long it has been since your gutters have been cleaned and if you have gutter screens or guards installed.
If your gutters are not cleaned and they fill with water, the weight (often over 400 pounds on one single gutter) can pull the whole system down and even parts of your roof. The average gutter replacement in Atlanta costs well over $1,000 and roof repairs can be magnitudes more.
You’d expect a professional to provide the results that even a well trained homeowner can’t achieve. Our technicians provide a high level of quality and they look for problems you might have missed when trying to do it yourself. If you have loose hangers or your downspouts are not flowing away from the house properly, fixing them during a cleaning can save more on gutter repairs later.
