If you’re not on a regular semi-annual schedule to get your gutters serviced or you’ve never had pro gutter cleaning, you may be wondering when it’s a good time to undertake this project. Typically, your gutters need to be checked and cleared of debris twice a year. Otherwise, these are three red flags that your gutters are clogged. When that happens, water damage may affect your attic, walls and foundation, leading to expensive repairs.
Your home’s rain gutters typically channel water away from your house. But when they fill with leaves and debris that become increasingly waterlogged, the weight is more than the mounting hardware is designed for. Your gutters begin to bow and pull away from your house.
Compacted leaves in your gutters lessen the depth and allow water to spill over the sides. When it rains, you shouldn’t see any water falling from your gutters. If that happens, they need to be cleaned out.
Downspouts are Dry
Even if your gutters look good because they’re in line with your roof and don’t overflow when it rains, there could still be a clog and you just don’t know it yet. Look at the downspout of your rain gutter–if it’s dry, there’s a blockage somewhere that’s keeping water from being allowed through.
