There Is A Clear Solution
Hiring someone to take care of your lawn and garden can be pricey, but it could save time and prevent gardening mishaps. Thinking of saving money by taking care of the lawn and garden yourself? Remember to budget for the equipment you’ll need, including a lawnmower, weed whacker and garden hoses.
When it comes to caring for gutters, ignorance isn’t bliss.
Each year, millions of dollars of damage to homes is caused by the accumulation of gutter debris left unattended. Leaves, twigs and small sticks attract wood-eating insects like the dreaded termite and carpenter ant. Once they have been introduced to a home, it can be only a matter of time before they start gnawing on things other than debris.

Gutters are created to keep water flowing away from a home, but a clogged gutter can trap pockets of water inside the walls or in the gutter itself. This pooled water is the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes, adding both the immediate nuisance of these biting pests and future concerns of blood-borne diseases.
Structural damage is even more worrisome than mosquitos. Foundation damage can happen when water pools at the base of your house. Additional problems from clogged gutters could include damage to your roof, siding or fascia – all costly repairs to make should the need arise. Repairs totaling thousands of dollars, or even tens of thousands, can be necessary to fix the problems that arise.
A clogged gutter is not able to efficiently direct water away from the home and, in fact, could create cascades of water in a focused area that will lead to erosion. The spilling water has been known to eat away at top soil, ruining landscaping and wreaking havoc on the property value of homes.
Worse yet, much of these consequences can go undetected for months, slowly causing devastating internal destruction along the way.
The Consequences of Clogged Gutters
Before structural damage is evident, wall or ceiling damage can be the first visible cue that something is wrong. When gutters are installed, they are attached to soffits. Even if this is done correctly with the proper size gutter and installation, things can still go awry. Clogged gutters can cause tension against the home, leading to entry points for water. These slow leaks can cause untold damage by the time the water damage is readily apparent along the ceiling or walls.
