Culprits Behind Gutter Overflow

Your gutters are designed to direct water away from your home, protecting your roof, walls and foundation from water damage. Water can spill over the sides when your gutters overflow, potentially harming your precious abode.

In this blog post, Bone Dry Roofing – West delves into the most common causes of gutter overflow and the steps you can take to address and prevent it.

Causes of Overflowing Gutters

Blocked Gutters

Over time, things like leaves, twigs, or other debris can end up in your gutters, blocking the proper water flow. It’s like a beaver dam in your gutters, as the water has nowhere to go but over the side.

Poorly Installed Gutters

If not installed at the correct angle or pitch, the water won’t flow correctly and could overflow. That’s why it’s essential to hire professionals for gutter installation.

Damaged Gutters

A small crack or hole can disturb the flow, causing water to spill out in unwanted places. Regular inspection and maintenance can help identify such issues before they escalate into a bigger problem.

Insufficient Gutters

If you don’t have enough gutters or downspouts to handle the volume of rainfall, you’ve got a recipe for overflow.
