Gutters and downspouts are one of the most important aspects of your home. Not having gutters, or just as worse, having clogged gutters can do thousands of dollars worth of damage not just to the landscaping around your home, but to your foundation as well. If you’ve got a damp basement or visible water in your basement, the first thing you should check is your gutters.
If rainwater is allowed to just run off the roof, moisture will typically build up around the outside of the foundation and that vapor will make its way through the “solid” walls. It can put so much hydrostatic pressure on your foundation that cracks and even major structural damage can appear. Besides damage that runoff can create, having standing water in your gutters has its own set of problems. It creates nesting areas for termites, birds, mosquitoes, and other insects. Not to mention water is heavy! With a 30 ft run of your average gutter, you’d have roughly 26 gallons of water or ~220 pounds hanging on your gutters! Gutters aren’t designed to support this kind of weight and they could literally rip themselves off of your fascia.
Sure you could crawl up that rickety old ladder you have laying around and clean your gutters yourself. Of course there is the fact that according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, an average of 165,000 emergency room visits a year are caused by ladder falls. You could also ask your neighbor or a friend to do it, but what if they injure themselves? They got hurt on your property, so technically it’s your fault, do you trust them to not take you to court?
