We can’t reiterate it enough: Your gutters serve to keep your home’s foundation intact. This means that, if your gutters become clogged and, thus, cannot perform that function any longer, you could be looking at some serious foundational issues at some point down the road. But, of course, foundational damage isn’t permanent. Like any issues in your home, that damage can be fixed – at a cost, of course. And a big one at that. After all, any major home repairs are going to be quite expensive, as any Portland homeowner knows.
