Rainwater Intrusion in Sophia?

8/30/2021 (Permalink)

A clogged rain gutter is shown. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Raleigh County.

Clogged or damaged rain gutters' downspouts can contribute to water damage when the water is allowed to spill onto the structure instead of draining away from the home. SERVPRO® of Beckley responds to water damage emergencies all year long in Sophia, and we offer these tips from home expert Bob Villa on how to determine if your rain gutters are damaged:

Inspect your rain gutters for visible signs of cracking. Use some binoculars to inspect for smaller cracks. If you see extensive cracking, replacement is required.

Inspect gutter seams for damage where two horizontal sections meet.

Inspect your home’s paint job. If there is evidence of paint peeling, it may point to rain gutter failure. Check the section of the rain gutter closest to the paint damage for leaks. If there are more than a couple of leaks, you may want to replace the rain gutters.

Inspect your home’s exterior wood elements for rotting windowsills or door jambs. You may have clogged rain gutters or inadequate storm drainage.

Inspect the exterior of the home for mildew damage. If there is moisture accumulating around or near the foundation, mildew can grow. This is a sign your rain gutters are not working properly.
