Can your gutters get through the storm?

It’s that time of the year when you hear that pattering sound on your rooftop in early spring. Laying in bed on a cloudy, rainy day can be so calming, and the soothing sound of the rain puts you right to sleep. Rainy weather is also the perfect weather to read a book, work on arts and crafts, do puzzles, bake, and especially binge-watch a tv series or movie. But maybe you’d rather get organized and be productive; that’s okay too! Use this time to catch up on homework, study, or deep clean your home. There are so many things to do in rainy weather. It’s up to you and what you feel like doing. Though a rainy day is the perfect gloomy weather to get some sleep or be productive, It won’t benefit you unless you know your home is fully equipped to keep away any possible water damage to your home. 


Kansas City is one of a kind, and it’s a beautiful place to live, but all the locals know our weather goes from 65 and sunny to an ice storm overnight. With spring being right around the corner, we must be prepared for any weather conditions. Unfortunately, this time of year, we see a lot of rain! So it’s very important to ensure your home is prepared and in good condition to withstand any mild to extreme weather. From snow to rain, Keeping your home in its best condition saves you from more stress in the long run. 


One of the best ways to help you and your home is to ensure you have a gutter system that does the job they are supposed to do. Unfortunately, open-top gutter systems, like, leaf guard, tend to get clogged, which keeps the water from flowing through the gutter the way it’s supposed to. As a result, you can’t relax if your ceiling is leaking or your basement is flooding. 


You might have tried to put gutter guards, filters, or screens on your open-top gutter system to try and prevent clogging and other issues. The problem with either of these options is that they are just temporarily fixing the problem. These gutter guards, filters, and screens don’t do the job you need them to, and you’ll have to replace them constantly. 


What kind of water damage can clogged gutters cause?


When your gutters are clogged, they do not work properly to stream the water away from your home. This causes the water to spill over the side of your gutters, causing much bigger issues like structural issues, mold and mildew, flooding, and foundation damage. If the water backs up on your gutters, it can cause roof leaks which will ultimately cause rotting and all sorts of other damage. Your gorgeous lawn and garden you worked so hard on last year can also be damaged from too much water overflow. 


Did you also know overflowing water in your gutters can cause insect infestations? You heard me right? Gross! The water in your gutters can be a breeding spot for insects like mosquitoes. Nobody wants a family of mosquitoes to overpopulate their yard. No one likes bee or wasp nests around their house, but damp mud and leaves can be the perfect place to build them. 


Now we know gutters can clog the exterior of our homes and cause other issues, but did you also know they could also cause severe damage to the interior of your home? Clogged gutters causing roof leaks can lead to water in the soffit, which will create mold build-up from leaks in your ceiling and walls. 


As a homeowner, no one wants to deal with stressful situations like these in our homes. But, if there are preventable solutions to keeping your home in its best shape and form, wouldn’t you?
