If common knowledge is anything to go by, it’s that cleaning and maintenance are the only gutter work you’ll ever need. In most cases, especially in well-built and modern gutters, cleaning could keep the roofing feature in good condition. But if problems persist, you probably have to take a more drastic step: replacement.
Gutter replacement is a more serious matter than you think.
A Compromised Foundation
Leaky gutters, for one thing, could lead to significant water damage; your house’s foundation may be at stake. Clogged gutters, for another thing, can collapse the whole structure around the roof. Though most times, it only spills water around your property.
When the rainwater can’t flow out of the downspout, it just spills wherever it can. The spillage starts to create a pool; that standing water has to go somewhere. And it does—beneath the soil and then, most likely, in your basement. Over time, the walls will start to crack, and water will flow everywhere. You probably won’t have to deal with a flood, but you will have to worry about a weakened foundation.
