A gutter’s primary function is to channel water away from your home. But, if something prevents this flow, the water spills over the sides of your gutters. Unfortunately, overflowing gutters cause a lot of structural damage to your home and foundation.
Luckily, identifying the root cause of your overflow can help in mitigating the issue. Here are three main reasons for gutter overflow.
- Debris such as granules, leaves, stones, and sticks clogging up your gutter
- Wrong placement or positioning of your gutters, e.g., your gutter is tilting away from the house
- Your gutters are small and can’t handle heavy rainfall
