Clogged Gutters Will Cause Serious Damage to your Home

Having your traditional rain gutters clog all of the time is more than a nuisance and increases the likelihood of damage occurring to your home. Having conventional gutters on your house, instead of a one-piece seamless gutter system such as LeafGuard® Brand Gutters, can cause you tens of thousands of dollars of damage when you have issues with clogged gutters.

Breeding Ground for Unwanted Pests

Clogged gutters provide food, moisture and a protected area for insects of all kinds to live and breed. In open style gutters, leaves, pine needles, and debris pile up making a lovely nest for these types of insects to live as if they are staying at the Four Seasons. Here are the most common insect offenders living in open style gutters:

  • Mosquitoes
  • Earwigs
  • Carpenter Ants
  • Earthworms

Destruction of Landscaping

Our plants and flowers are a form of pride in the Midwest due to our short growing season and having that destroyed in a few short weeks due to clogged and overflowing gutters is probably not something that you want to happen. When your gutters clog, the water travels through the path of least resistance, overflowing with force strong enough to dig holes into your flowers and garden beds. Excessive soil moisture from clogged, overflowing gutters will also cause your landscaping to die.

Rotting Wood

If you have wood fascia around your home, it will start to deteriorate and rot due to clogged gutters. From the moment that standing water comes in contact with wood, it will start breaking down even within a few hours.  Replacing fascia around your home can cost thousands of dollars.

The Foundation of Your Home

If you presently have cracks in your foundation, you will already have water coming into your basement. If you don’t have cracks yet that is going to be your fate because of the potential for overflowing clogged gutters to pool water around the foundation of your home. Water will weaken your foundation causing water penetration points and eventually the need for serious home improvements to be made.

Leaking Roof & Frozen Sidewalks

In the winter, clogged gutters can cause the water to build up on your roof causing what is known as an ice dam, forcing the water to leak into your attic and home causing severe water damage. If your clogged gutters don’t move water far enough away from your home, water can pool and freeze on your sidewalks posing a major safety hazard.

"Lindus Construction/Midwest LeafGuard® is the best! After storm damage, the crew replaced everything in less than a day."

We had a great experience with Lindus on a LeafGuard® gutter project with new fascia and soffits. Our house is over a hundred years old and we know that every time you open it up, there are surprises. The fantastic crew took it all in stride. They called in more experienced members of the company to discuss options and always kept us in the loop. They spent a lot longer at our place than I am sure they planned, but never once did it feel rushed nor an inconvenience. The end result looks great and the LeafGuard® gutters are flowing smoothly.

"We interacted with Lindus to install rain gutters on our new house. Lindus was super-efficient, and provided excellent communication before, during and after the job. The work was completed right on schedule, the install looks great and is functioning perfectly. They also cleaned up the work area when they finished the job. They are not the cheapest out there but it was well worth cost.Thanks for a great contractor experience!"
