If your roof is the first line of defense against the elements, then your gutter system would most certainly be the second line. Wrapping around the perimeter of your roof and channeling water away through a series of downspouts, your gutters prevent excess water from building up or pooling up on your roof, sending the water to the ground and out, away from your home to prevent flooding issues. When they fail, however, you’ve got problems.
Gutter malfunction may become obvious if you start seeing mold or peeling paint on your home’s exterior. Also, the siding of your home may become discolored from backsplash due to failing gutters. Sometimes the gutters may come loose and begin sagging off the side of the house....this may be the result of clogging by leaves or branches or other debris. Sagging allows water to bypass the gutter system and get into your home. Sagging gutters are also unable to properly channel water into the downspouts for proper disposal.
Oddly enough standing water in your basement can also be a sign of gutter malfunction. Clogged gutters can force water to flow over the side and accumulate near your foundation. Since basements are the lowest lying location in any structure, the excess water will manage to find its way there, which can result in serious water damage or other more long term problems such as mold.
Of course the best way to combat this sort of damage is to prevent it. Take the time to inspect your gutters for clogging or damage at least a couple of times every year. Identifying a problem before it begins goes a long way towards preventing other more serious problems.
