Gutters clogged with debris and gunk can’t be ignored. It’s important to keep gutters clean to avoid the basement flooding and moisture damage that often results from clogged, overflowing gutters.
When a gutter clogs, bad things happen.
Heavy rain can cause clogged gutters to quickly fill with water and overflow, dumping water next to your foundation and possibly leading to a flooded basement or crawl space.Schedule A Free Estimate

What’s in my gutters?
Depending on your home’s surroundings and features, any of the following items might be present in unprotected gutters:
- Leaves, twigs, seeds and sprouts
- Mold on rotted organic materials
- Grit from shingles or shingle fragments
- Shingle or flashing nails
- Masonry fragments from chimneys
- Rodent and bird nests
- Dead insects or animals
Gutter protection will prevent these and other debris from entering your gutters, causing damaging backups, overflow, and even ice damming during the winter months. It is vitally important to have an adequate and complete gutter and downspout system for your home to prevent this type of damage.
