The #1 Reason to Avoid Clogged Gutters
The most important reason to avoid clogged gutters is to protect your home from water damage.

Bugs and small animals also love to make their homes in gutters when there’s adequate debris. In fact, they may actually bring debris to your gutters for nesting materials.
When gutters are clogged you’ll likely have water spilling out of the gutters. This water may run down the side of your home or over the gutters onto the ground which splashes up onto the home’s foundation and siding and can cause damage. In more serious situations, especially in winter, water backs up and freezes causing ice dams which can lead to water coming inside the home ruining walls, flooring and possessions.
