Clogged Gutters Can Cause Water to Flow down the
Sides of the Home & Pool Around Its Foundation
Fall Is Here, Leaves Are Falling - Don't Let Your Gutters Become Clogged
What Are Gutters and Why Are They Important?
Gutters are basically long channels that sit along the lower edge of your roof. They're designed to capture all the water that hits your roof when it rains or melts after a snow, ensuring that it travels safely to the ground. These channels are angled slightly to direct water to the downspouts, which allow the water to fall to the ground in a controlled manner. The end of the downspout is curved to ensure the water is deposited away from the home's foundation. Without the gutter, or with a defective or clogged gutter, the water would simply fall right next to the house and form a pool near the foundation.
