If you are experiencing water leaking from your gutters into your house, the likely cause is clogged gutters. Cleaning out your gutters is more than just a tedious chore, it is necessary in order to avoid costly damage to your home. Clogged gutters allow water to sit stagnant against your home, leading to roof rot, which makes the material weak over time. Eventually, water will start to seep into your home causing further damage to the interior.
In addition to roof leaks, clogged gutters can create a breeding ground for birds, rodents, and insects that can also find their way into your home over time. Plus, water that is not channeled away from the home will instead flow over the sides of the gutters and pool on your lawn, which can cause landscape erosion and foundation damage. For all these reasons, it is crucial for homeowners to keep their gutters free of clogs.
Some people try to reduce the number of clogs in their gutters using gutter protection systems, such as attached gutter guards. However, these after-market products can come with issues of their own – for instance, some are installed onto the roof line, which creates an unappealing appearance and can also void roof warranties. The best solution for preventing the damage caused by clogged gutters is to invest in the only one-piece gutter protection system on the market: BELDON® LeafGuard. This patented seamless gutter system has a built-in gutter protection hood that allows a large amount of rainfall to be channeled away from the home, while debris such as twigs, leaves, and pine needles are washed across the hood to the ground.
