Gutters and Downspouts
A&M Total Restoration Gutter and Downspout Services are an essential resource for all property owners when needing maintenance, repairs or replacement of their gutters and downspouts. Whether you own residential, commercial or industrial property, gutters and downspouts are an essential part of maintaining the drainage of your property from the roof to the foundation. When your gutters or downspouts are clogged or broken, you can have damage to other parts of your property as well including damage to the roof and foundation alike.
Gutters and downspouts are designed to work together to properly drain water from your roof and guide it down to the ground and away from your structure foundation. Regular cleaning of gutters and installing gutter guards can help to prevent most clogging issues with gutters and downspouts alike. The first step to preventing clogs and blockages is by removing debris or preventing it from entering the gutter in the first place is half of the battle in preventing clogged gutters and downspouts.
When gutters are clogged or downspouts are broken this can cause water to run down the sides of your house or building and the runoff can pool around your foundation. Water pools around the foundation when the ground becomes over saturated. This pooled water can gradually create damage to your foundation because of the excess pressure it puts on the walls of the foundation. This extra pressure can create cracks and leaks in the foundation allowing water to enter your structure and damage surfaces, floors and property as well as permitting the growth of dangerous molds and mildew.
Structures with a flat roof can suffer from similar stresses with clogged or broken downspouts. If a flat roof is not getting the drainage needed, it can bow, crack and leak causing damage not only to the roof itself, but also the structure and property inside the home or commercial property.
