The main reason that gutters overflow is because they are clogged with leaves, branches, dirt, or other debris. It is important to always do regular and periodic gutter cleaning and maintenance – of your gutter system – in order to protect against water damage in your home. As an A+ BBB certified Gutter Installation company – we are often called to diagnose every imaginable gutter problem.
A highly efficient gutter system is one that effectively carries water away from your roof through the eavestroughs – and safely down a downpipe – into the perimeter drain. Over time – gutters can get clogged – and overflow. Naturally, sometimes gutters overflow not because they are clogged – but because the flow of water is too great for the gutter system. In that case – we sometimes suggest the installation of extra downpipes to facilitate fast water flow. Again the important thing to note is that the gutter system is there to redirect water away from the house.
In some cases – the gutters only appear to overflow because the water isn’t allowed to fall into the eavestroughs – but instead shoot over the gutters – causing a “waterfall” effect. In these cases it is important to let a professional gutter installation company – like Dynamic Gutters & Exteriors – conduct a free inspection – and diagnose the problem. In some cases – we may install roof diverters to “divert” the water slowly back into the gutters.
Periodic and seasonal gutter cleaning and maintenance is crucial to upkeep the effective performance of yoru gutter system. You may do it yoursef – or opt to sit back and relax – and let a professional company like Dynamic Gutters & Maintenance Ltd. take care of the work for you.
