Drip. Drip. Drip….
You may think that the little leak from your gutters is not a top priority. But if ignored, a leaky gutter can cause serious damage to your home and even cause health problems for your family! Here are a few issues that can stem from leaky gutters:
-Over time, water can create mold, mildew, and stains sometimes in places you can’t see. Mold can cause people with allergies and asthma complications. It’s unhealthy and unsightly. Stagnant water also becomes a breeding ground for mosquitos and other insects.
-A gutter leak that finds its way into your home can damage wood, drywall, and even carpeting which can be costly and time-consuming for your family.
-A larger leak can inhibit rainwater from saturating your lawn and eventually causing a leak into your basement. This can cause foundation problems. If you’ve never dealt with foundation problems, consider yourself lucky. It’s a headache on top of a headache.
The important thing to remember is that as soon as you notice a leaky gutter, you should take the time to fix or replace it as soon as you can. Give us a call for a free estimate!
