Why Overflowing Gutters Endanger and Devalue Your Home

Gutter weedsWhen gutters overflow, they’re probably full of leaves or the downpipes are blocked.  If rainwater can’t escape through the downpipes, it escapes whichever way it can.  The overflow can create puddles big enough to damage your gardens, or be forced inside your home where damage is often far more costly.

Water and electricity are a dangerous mix that can make gutter problems a fire hazard that endangers your family. And if gutters overflow into your roof space, ugly stains can appear on your ceiling and devalue your home, perhaps your biggest asset.
