Gutter maintenance is a must if you want to protect your roof and exterior from moisture damage. If your gutters are clogged, rainwater might overflow, drench your siding, flood your landscape and even seep into your home’s foundation, causing erosion.

What are some common gutter problems, and how do you fix them?

1. Gutter Leaks and Repairs

The most common gutter issue homeowners encounter is leaky gutters. Several factors can create a gutter leak, but the usual culprit is irregular or improper gutter maintenance. Without routine maintenance, leaves and other kinds of organic debris can accumulate in your gutters, preventing rainwater from flowing to the drains and adding extra weight. If your gutters aren’t able to handle the excess weight, sections may start to pull apart at the seams, creating leaks. If the leaks aren’t too large, they can be fixed using sealant. Otherwise, a gutter replacement may be needed.

What if you just don’t have the time to maintain your gutters? You can either hire a professional to do it for you or install a rain gutter guard system. Gutter Helmet® is the only gutter protection system on the market with a Never Clean Your Gutters Again® guarantee.

Upgrading to seamless gutters can also help. Seamless gutters lack seams, the weak point of a conventional gutter system, making them more resistant to leaks.

2. Sagging Gutters and Gutter Hangers 

If sections of your gutter system don’t pull apart at the seams under excess weight, they may start to sag instead. Replacing the gutter hangers and realigning sections of your gutter system should fix the problem.

3. Gutter Installation Issues and Gutter Replacements 

Loose gutters and inefficient downspout drainage are just some of the issues that can result from gutter installation errors. To make sure your gutters are installed properly, work with an experienced, licensed gutter contractor that has excellent reviews.
