That is why it is important to understand what types of problems occur with Gutters.
Typical Gutter Problems
Gutter problems occur when gutters are improperly maintained. Natural elements like leaves and snow can cause debris accumulation. Loose debris will begin to decompose and form solid sheets within your gutter. In return this can cause gutter clogs. Damaged and clogged gutters can cause a number of issues including:
- Foundation cracking and settlement
- basement flooding
- paint damage
- mold damage
- soil erosion
Ice Formation is another common gutter problem. Ice weighs down the gutter which can cause the gutter to split apart. Leaning ladders against gutters can also cause damage to your gutter. It is important to hire a professional gutter installer to clean your gutters.
Gutter maintenance is one of the most important tasks you face as a homeowner.

How often should my gutters be cleaned?
Gutters should be cleaned at least twice per year, however, if your house is surrounded by many trees you should have your gutters cleaned at least four times per year.
Why do my gutters need to be cleaned?
Gutters need to be cleaned to remove debris that builds up inside the gutters. By having gutters filled with leaves and other debris, it creates breeding nests for bugs, insects, and mice. Also, by having gutters that cannot properly drain water, it will result in water overflowing from the gutters and not being drained at the proper location. By having water overflow from the gutters, it will result in water going into the ground near the foundation which could result in damage to the foundation and basement of your home. It could also damage the paint and siding on your house which can lead to more expensive repairs.
Why are gutters important?

This could cause thousands of dollars of damage to your foundation and basement of your home. By keeping your gutters clean, it will help your gutters properly function.
