Gutters and downspouts are one of the most important components of your roofing system. They funnel not only rain but also snow runoff away from your home. Therefore, they protect the exterior of your home, including the basement and house foundation. However, when there is any deficiency, they can cause major damages to your roof.
When these gutters are clogged, for example, they can cause trapped water to move upwards. If such water finds any gap, they can easily penetrate inside the house. Also, trapped water can cause roof decay. This weakens the roofing system. Last but not least, the trapped water can cause ice damming, especially with an extreme drop in temperature.
