Although many business owners consider gutters as auxiliary additions, the gutter system is actually responsible for protecting your space from water damage. So when your gutters experience damage that affects its performance, you need to address it immediately. Read on as Noble Roofing explains the dangers of damaged gutters.
Frontage and Foundation
A damaged gutter system will not properly divert water from the roofing away from the exterior walls. This means that there’s a high chance the the runoff will actually pour directly on your property’s exterior walls. This will negatively affect the exterior wall paint or siding of your property and lower its curb appeal.
But an even bigger danger is when the water stars flowing down from the roofing and into the foundation. Strong, constant exposure to moisture and standing water is detrimental to the overall structural integrity of your property’s foundation, so have professionals from Noble Roofing check for this problem and remedy it straight away.
Ice Dam Risks
Your commercial property can experience ice dams, too. And your roofing will be likelier to experience them when your gutters aren’t working properly. Snow and ice will start building up in your gutters instead of going down, and this puts unnecessary weight on it. The weight itself puts a strain on the roof, and it also encourages water to intrude into your property’s interior spaces.
