When not maintaining your gutters, they can become consumed by leaves, twigs, and other sediment. When unchecked build up leaves, twigs and sediment occur., it forces the water to be redirected. This can cause major damage to your home’s drywall, roof, foundation, soffits, and fascia, and below grade areas of your home. Over a long enough period of time, it can damage the gutters to the point of needing to replace them entirely.
