What Are the Signs of Clogged Gutters?  

Almost every property has rain gutters. However, rarely do property owners think of gutter maintenance. Clogged gutters can cause various issues, from mold and basement flooding to roof leakage and ceiling damage.

In this post, Curb Appeal Power Clean discusses the signs of clogged gutters and when to call for professional gutter cleaning in Los Angeles. Keep reading for more information.

Sagging or Collapsing

When a clogged gutter fills with dirt, debris, and water, the excess weight may damage the gutter system and cause the gutters to sag. Sagging often occurs before the seams slip or separate and the gutter guards snap out of place.

Sagging indicates that you have clogged gutters that need cleaning. Act fast to prevent extensive gutter damage that may force you to replace them prematurely.

Leaks and Floods

Leaky seams and a flooded basement are perhaps the most apparent signs of a clogged gutter system. A properly functioning gutter system funnels water toward the downspouts.

Check that your gutters work properly, as they should not leak and cause water to seep into your home or cause water damage.

Plants Growing in Your Gutters

Tree and plant debris that ends up in your gutters can lead to unwanted plant growth. Seeds may fall into your gutters, and with the right conditions, they may sprout. Look out for plant growth in your gutters and schedule professional gutter cleaning in Los Angeles.

Stained Siding

Since clogged gutters struggle to direct water away from the sides of your property, the water may end up staining your siding. Don’t let a clogged gutter system rob your property of its aesthetic appeal. Stay alert for signs of clogged gutters, and call your local gutter cleaning service as soon as possible.

Many gutter cleaning companies charge a particular rate per linear foot to clean gutters. Ask for quotes from several companies and compare them before making a decision.

Birds or Pests on Your Roof

If you notice pests or animals hanging around your gutters and roof, you may have clogged gutters. Birds and critters will find a clogged gutter quite inviting to nest in. Schedule regular gutter cleaning to help maintain a healthy gutter system free of unwanted organisms.

Exterior Rust or Mildew

Rust or mildew on your home’s exterior points to an issue with your gutters. When water gets trapped or overflows inside your gutters, you can expect a mold or mildew problem. If you have metal or vinyl siding, keep an eye out for rust spots.

Standing Water

Gutters protect your foundation from water damage. If you notice standing water around the foundation, you may have clogged gutters. Washed away dirt around your house, especially when it’s not raining, could also be a sign of clogged gutters.

Our Customer Reviews

Great customer service, honest guys.I called Curb Appeal for a quote and estimate. Got an instant response over the phone and was able to text photos of the damage. The contractor answered immediately and gave their base estimate but also gave some excellent advice and their professional opinion that the damage didn’t require the more expensive treatment. It’s a very rare company that doesn’t try to upsell you, and they were completely correct. Thank you so much.
I called them based on their reviews and they did deliver. From the ease of making the appointment, texting the day to inform me they were running late and what time to expect them -the communication is excellent. I would definitely use them for next year’s gutter cleaning. Thank you Curb Appeal!

I called Curb Appeal to schedule service for our gutters to be cleared. They responded promptly and scheduled me in. Due to some upcoming rains, they moved me up to get the job done before then, which was really appreciated. The crew was prompt and efficient and all communication was very easy. I highly recommend Curb Appeal for any of the services they provide.
