Clogged gutters is a problem for any home. The purpose of gutters is to deter water from the roof, to the ground and away from the foundation. Clogged gutters are the number one cause of basement water problems, roof water overflow and accumulation around the foundation. If this happens, basement leaks may occur and excess water against the foundation can weaken the footings and lead to cracks. With this being said, debris filled gutters may cause other problems. When gutters have debris piled up above the flashing or shingle line, the debris may cause moisture to leak into the fascia board. The moisture can also affect the roof sheathing and framing beyond the fascia. Many homeowners have spent thousands of dollars replacing rotted wood that an inexpensive professional gutter cleaning could have prevented. If you have Clogged or debris filled gutters get them cleaned immediately to prevent these costly water damage repairs.

Gloeocapsa magma, a form of algae, will find its way on any roof or siding. It lowers the lifetime of your roof, can cause damage and, not to mention, is an eye sore. Gloeocapsa magma has gained notoriety in the Southeastern United States, but, it is also spreading throughout the Midwest. This particular type of cyanobacteria is responsible for creating black stains and streaks on roofs. The bacteria accumulate over time as it feeds on moisture and calcium carbonate. This accumulation begins to show the black stains as the cyanobacteria develop their dark and hard UV-protective outer coating. Once the bacteria have become noticeable, the stains will continue to worsen year to year. If left untreated, the growth may hold moisture within shingles causing premature aging, rotting, and/or granule loss. The growth also has the potential to allow moss and/or lichen. Moss and lichen can cause a considerable amount of damage in a short amount of time. If you have black streaks, or, notice the start of the streaks, get them removed immediately!
