Keep those Gutters clean! If your gutters remained clogged and uncleaned, material and debris will build up along the gutter path and overflow into and onto the building and its foundation.
Real damage can occur if you delay cleaning your gutters.
As mentioned above, because of debris, gutters will fill and clog. When this happens gutters will backup and fill, allowing water to seep into your attic adding moisture to the ceiling or even between walls.
Damage to your Foundation
Overflowing gutters due to a clogged system can also fall directly down near your foundation, instead of flowing away from your foundation. This can lead to a soften soil and will lead to foundation cracks.
When your gutters are jammed with debris, it becomes the perfect spot for insects to live. The problem arises when these insects relocate to the inside of the house, mainly when the weather changes. This could lead to termites and a possible infestation.
