6 Signs You Have Clogged Gutters In New Castle County, DE

Clogged gutters can wreak havoc on your entire New Castle County, DE home. When your gutters become clogged, water will be unable to properly divert away from your home. Instead, the water will spill over the side of your gutters, leading to a number of different issues like foundation damage, structural issues, mold and mildew and basement flooding. Check your gutters frequently to avoid these problems.

You May Have Clogged Gutters If………

     1.  You Spot Birds Or Pests             By Your Roof

If you are noticing animals or pests hanging around your gutters, this can be a sign your gutters are clogged. Gutters are a convenient place for birds and pests to make a nest.

     2.  Water Is Spilling Over               The Sides

If you notice water spilling over the sides of your gutters, it’s a tell-tale sign you have clogged rain gutters. The obstruction can force water over the sides of your gutter, leading to expensive water related damages.

     3.  Sagging Gutters

Sagging gutters are a sign that your gutters are clogged. The weight of the debris, leaves, shingle grit and pine needles can cause your gutters to bend in the middle and sag. Unfortunately, your gutters will be ineffective at carrying water away from your home.

     4. Staining On Your Siding

Staining on the siding of your home can be a sign of standing water in your gutter system. Rain water that is stagnant could end up causing costly damage to the fascia boards behind the gutters and on the shingles of your roof.

     5.  Plant Growth

A Garden in your gutters is an obvious sign of clogged gutters. Seeds can accumulate in your gutters and along with dirt and debris, a gutter garden can form!

     6.  Can’t Remember The                 Last Time You Cleaned

If you can’t remember the last time you climbed the ladder to clean your gutters, odds are you’re in need of a serious cleaning.
