Question: I thought my gutters were fine, but every time we have a rain storm in Denver, my gutters overflow. Why does this keep happening?
Answer: Well, anonymous homeowner, there are a variety of reasons for your gutters to continue to overflow. Luckily, these can be remedied by calling your leaf and gutter guard experts in Denver, Centennial and Lakewood. The most common causes of overflowing gutters include:
- Large amounts of rainfall. Where the Mile High City has been known to get some crazy storms coming off the Rocky Mountains, the amount of rainfall that our seamless gutters have been shown to withstand can handle the Centennial State’s best drenching. Make sure your gutters are able to take what our weather patterns throw at them.
- Improper setup for the size of the home. Not having the right amount of gutters and downspouts for your roof’s square footage can overwhelm even the most dependable gutter system. Make sure that your gutter company installs gutters on all sides of your home with a sufficient amount of downspouts that can safely filter the water away from your rooftop.
- Clogged gutters. Leaves, dirt and debris are the number one culprit for clogged and overflowing gutters. A top-rated gutter guard system will keep the debris out of your gutters allowing only water to move through to the downspouts.
- Clogged downspouts. Harder to recognize but just as damaging, clogged downspouts can cause water to back up into the gutters causing them to overflow. Again, an effective leaf guard will keep your downspouts clean of clogging leafs and other debris.
