April Showers: Big Problems

April showers might bring May flowers, but they can also bring some less than desirable things for homeowners!

Foundation Problems

Excessive rain can cause foundation problems due to water buildup. This is typically a result of misdirected roof runoff and clogged gutter downspouts, and can have costly results for homeowners. Be sure and keep an eye on your floor boards and walls, as crumbling and cracks are a tell-tale sign of a problem.

Roof and Siding Damage

A buildup up of debris over time, followed by rain can cause gutter backups, and eventually roof leaks and damage to siding and facia boards. While typical gutters are designed to protect facia boards and siding, they often cannot hold up to the demand.  And, they need frequent cleaning (tip: Next time you clean your gutters of debris, be sure and run water through them to be sure it now runs through the gutter quickly and easily).

As you can see, a poorly placed downspout, or a clogged gutter can be quite costly. If gutters aren’t working properly, water will have no option but to pool on the roof, or against the foundation of the building.

These things are frustrating, but they’re also preventable. With guarantees that last for the the lifetime of the home, GutterShutter certifies that the system will never clog or fill with debris.  It boasts a water-tight seal from the roofline down using our patented “high-back” gutter trough, AND there are no more clogged downspouts and associated water-related issues.
