There can be several knock on effects of blocked guttering, making it imperative that keeping gutters clear is essential. Problems that can arise include:
- Water damage - This can be an expensive consequence of blocked gutters. If they don't drain properly then water may overflow. This water can cause both internal and external issues. Water can seep into fascias and soffits, damaging these. This can also lead to damage to rafters, internal ceilings and water build up in cavity walls. These can be costly repairs to make.
- External damage - Water constantly overflowing the guttering can cause damage to external walls, leading to damp. It can also affect window seals, if water is constantly running down a window, the window drainage can become blocked and cause internal damage to the frame and your walls in the form of damp.
- Foundations - Overflowing gutters can cause pooling of water around the base of your property which can collect in the foundations. If these water freezes over winter it will expand and can lead to cracked foundations. It's as costly to repair as it sounds!
- Critters! - Leafy, mossy guttering can become a habitat for undesirable visitors. Insect infestations, as a result of clogged gutters, are common. We've seen birds and even small rodents make a nest in peoples gutters before now. It's then only a fascia or soffit that's stopping them from getting into your rafters, loft or walls!
