What Falls On Your House Might be Causing Water Issues Inside
This time of year, leaves. Sometimes dead tree branches, but mainly leaves. The fall colors are wonderful to view but seeing all the different colors inside your home’s gutter, not so pretty. Are you thankful to have some type of guttering cover? Sure, that’s a good investment so you are not cleaning gutters every day during the Fall season, but what about those severe thunderstorms that come in the fall. Those storms drop heavy amounts of rain in short periods of times that overflow gutters, even gutters with covers.
Bent, dented gutters from falling tree branches do a similar thing like overflowing gutters… a lot of water is dumped close to your foundation. When this occurs, or when gutters get clogged or overflow, water that typically is taken away from a home begins to leak into the basement or crawl space.
