The 5 Most Common Gutter Issues

The primary function of gutters is to direct water away from your home's foundation, and if they aren't in good working order, the damage can quickly compound and result in enormous repair costs.

Drainage Issues

Clogging is the most common problem that homeowners face with their gutters, which can lead to drainage issues. When debris accumulates in your gutters, it obstructs the normal flow of water and causes damage to your foundation and siding. To prevent this from happening, we recommend performing maintenance twice a year. Regular check-ins will prevent small problems from snowballing into expensive ones.

Drooping Gutters

Gutters that are weighed down by leaves, standing water, and twigs can begin to sag and droop, in addition to causing drainage issues. This usually happens when the hangers (the hardware that connects the gutters to your house) are too loose.

Leaks & Holes

With your gutters out in the elements all day, there are plenty of opportunities for damage to occur that can result in leaks. If you notice a stream of water escaping from your gutter, make sure to have it sealed as soon as possible to prevent damage to your foundation.

Weather Damage

Your gutters may sustain damage, particularly during storm season. Strong winds, heavy rain, and hail can dent, puncture, or even knock down properly installed gutters. Following a major storm, it's critical to assess the damage and determine whether the gutters need to be patched, rehung, or replaced entirely. While investing in these repairs may be inconvenient, you will save money in the long run by prioritizing the health of your home's foundation.

Improper Pitching

To function properly, gutters must be hung at the proper angle to allow for proper water flow and drainage. If your gutters are improperly pitched, you will most likely notice standing water after a storm, which is an indication that repairs are required. It's sometimes as simple as bending the gutter back into place, but in more complicated cases, it's best to call in the pros.
