When it comes to overflowing gutters the number one cause in 8/10 situations has shown to be clogs in the gutter system. A clog can be caused by any number of things, like Leaves and other natural debris, roof asphalt, fallen shingles/other roofing materials, animal feces, toys/other objects, and the list could go on.
Your home's gutters should be checked yearly and cleaned yearly or as often as needed per year to ensure the best operation is possible. Your home's gutters are designed to redirect water to safe draining areas and their operation is crucial to your home's foundation.
The second most common cause of overflowing gutters is an improper pitch.
The pitch is the direction the gutter is tilted, and typically should be towards the downspout at a near level pitch to allow for a professional look, and proper drainage at the same time. The pitch of the gutter can be thrown off easily by bearing too much weight, rotten fascia wood, broken hardware, and other causes like tree branches falling. A visual inspection usually can be enough to know if a gutter is pitched improperly. The most common solution is to replace the gutter to ensure all hardware is in good working condition.
Finally the last common occurrence with overflowing gutters is too narrow of a gap between the gutter and end of the roof surface, allowing water to over shoot a gutter completely. These situations can be complex but are typically caused by multiple layers of shingles being installed on the roof. The best solution is the installation of a wider gutter to help catch the water.
