A home with 1,500-square-foot roof sheds about 1,000 gallons of water for every inch of falling rain. If you want to prevent water from destroying your home and damaging the foundation of your house, you need to make sure that it is all gathered and channeled away.
If the gutters are neglected they will carry heavy debris which has accumulated over time. In addition to that, there will be standing water. That debris and water together can weigh as much as 370 lbs and will eventually damage the angle of the gutter. If the gutter’s pitch is damaged then standing water can back up into the home or home’s foundation.
In the fall time, we get a lot of leaves and pine needles blown around and wind up on our roofs. When it rains or gets a little windy they fall into our gutter where they eventually decompose and pack down into a solid sheet. Also, dirt, dust, and the granules from asphalt shingles can cause gutter clogging.
There are a lot of factors that can cause leaks in the gutters. The biggest factor is corrosion which is followed by falling branches. Sometimes people make leaks intentionally by drilling holes to assist drainage in sagging sections. But it is not the way to handle sagging properly. If you have a leak you should make sure it gets repaired immediately. That way you will avoid a major damage to your foundation or walls if your gutters are clogged.
When metal gutters get hit by something heavy they get bent, and vinyl gutters can break. During a big storm when large branches break off of the trees they strike the gutters. Also when people lean ladders against gutters they can bend them. Bending can crack a gutter and lead to leaks, so if you spot a bent gutter replacing the section is necessary.
Disconnected from Downspout
Any big storm with high winds can shake a connection loose. When the gutters get disconnected from downspout the water falls into your foundation and causes leaks, mold, and erosion. In that case, it can be fixed with a simple reattachment.
