How can water from your roof be the cause of flooding in your basement?
It seems like a ridiculous question, but it happens to a lot of unsuspecting homeowners.
With the rainwater being misdirected, the runoff from the roof can cause the water to seep into your basement. The results of these bad gutters can be catastrophic both financially and mentally.
There are several ways that rainwater can seep into your basement. It can be caused by bad gutter installation, such installation on the wall instead of the soffit, the water overflow can run down the walls and into the basement.
Clogged gutters can cause ground trenching, which eventually ends up in the basement. Trenching is caused by water soaking in one continuous spot for an extended period. If your basement contains cracks, this will only progress the speed of the flood.
Gutters play a vital role in protecting your home and adds value with proper care and maintenance. Avoid water in your basement, avoid damage to your home by having your gutters cleaned, repaired, or replaced.
