What Are Some Common Causes For A Blocked Gutter

Common Causes of Blocked Gutters

water coming from a blocked gutterGutters are a subtle but important feature of a home as they are necessary for directing rainwater away from the property. However, problems can easily arise over time from clogged or damaged gutters.

To help prevent this from happening, people should know some of the common causes for blocked guttering and how they can take care of these problems simply and efficiently.

Leaves are one of the biggest problems people will have. When people get a lot of leaves in the gutter, it tends to back up into the system until it flows over the top of the gutter.

This problem can cause the rain water to flow back into the eaves of the home and can cause significant water damage to your property.

Therefore, it is important to inspect your gutters periodically after the leaves have fallen from the trees or if your roof has moss growing on it. If it is not possible for you to view your guttering system then no problem, give us a call, and we will come, and do an inspection for you.

There are some cases where people may want to consider getting a gutter cover as well, which will put a barrier between the gutter basin and the top part. This will still allow the water to come into the gutter, but it will shoot all the leaves and other debris off of the top of them.

Bear in mind, that over time debris may still be able to enter the guttering system, even when using a gutter guard. However, the process will be much slower, and the debris will be smaller particles as larger objects will not be permitted to enter through the guard.

Gutters are a great invention to help improve the stability of a home and protect your property from damage. However, it is inevitable that at some point you will either need to get your gutters cleaned out or repaired.

Being mindful of this issue and scheduling periodic gutter cleaning from a professional company such as Sam’s Gutters will help you to preserve your guttering system, minimise repair bills for your gutters and preserve your property from water damage.

By knowing about these common causes, it will be easy for you to get the right cleaning done, but also know how to prevent it from happening again in the future.
