How Gutters Work

Every gutter is designed to remove rainwater from the base of your home with the help of downspouts. Gutters and downspouts are only effective and efficient if they are clear of debris. They must also be adequately pitched or angled toward the downspouts to encourage the flow of rainwater.

Signs Your Gutters Aren’t Working


Debris in your gutters, water stains down your siding, or your gutters pulling away from the fascia are signs that you have clogged gutters.

Improperly Pitched

Stagnant water in your gutters mean they lay too flat. Water overflowing the gutters means that your gutter is angled too steeply to hold water.


Seeing water dripping from your gutter system means that you may have leaky gutter joints or holes from wear and tear.


Sagging gutters pulls away from your soffit and fascia. This can be caused by the weight of debris or too few gutter hangers.

The Damages of Clogged Gutters

When water is not diverted properly through your gutters, it can have serious, far-reaching consequences.

Clogged gutters impact your home resulting in serious damage like:

Rotting Fascia & Soffit

Heaving Driveway

Mold & Mildew Growth
