Your gutters play a critical role in protecting your home from water damage during a storm, so it’s important that they are in top shape at all times. One of the most obvious signs of gutter damage is sagging. This can cause water to flow in the wrong direction, causing water damage.

Today, Gutter Helmet® of Northern Minnesota, an installer of the best gutter guard on the market, explains why gutters sag:

Low-Quality Gutter Material

Temperature variations can cause your gutters to expand and contract. This can cause the material to warp, which will eventually lead to sagging. Some manufacturers apply a non-corrosive finish on their gutters to make them more durable, so make sure to do your research before getting new gutters installed.

Gutter Clogs

This is the biggest cause of gutter sagging. Over time, leaves, twigs, dirt and other debris will accumulate in your gutters, causing a clog. Clogged gutters become filled with standing water. The additional weight puts stress on the system and can cause the gutters to sag or even pull away from your roof. Prevent this from happening by cleaning your gutters regularly, or better yet, installing a reliable gutter protection system.

Mistakes During Installation

Subpar gutter installation greatly increases the risk of sagging gutters. For example, a subpar contractor might install the gutter hangers too far away from one another and may also fail to confirm that the gutters are properly aligned. Ask for local references do your homework before hiring a contractor.
