Gutters Too Small For Your Roof

Are your gutters big enough for your roof?

It’s fair to assume that the gutters on your roof are designed to capture and direct excess rainfall away from your house. But there’s no guarantee that they are.


Leaky gutters can erode your home’s foundation.

And you’re probably aware of how snow, hail and leaves can block water. But these are just the obvious causes. Less known is the fact that many gutters are simply inadequate to handle the flow of water that comes off your roof during rain storm. The result? Water that’s supposed to be directed away from your walls, flows directly towards your home’s foundation, creating the potential for erosion and serious structural damage.

Excessive water drainage can over-saturate the soil, causing it to expand and exert pressure onto the foundation. This often contributes to foundation problems such as cracks and erosion.

Leakage problems can be the result of rusting or aging, but they’re also the result of gutters that are inadequate for the volume of water flowing off your roof.

If your downspouts aren’t directing water away from your foundation, you may be facing long term damage.

The signs of overflow are easy to spot, but the damage isn’t. If your foundation has been eroded by water damage, the structural integrity of your home can be compromised permanently.
