Your gutters perform a vital function: they protect the rest of your home from water damage. If your gutters are in bad shape, then you should have them repaired as soon as possible. In this blog post, Gutter Helmet® of Minnesota, the leading Gutter Helmet systems expert in our local area, discusses some common gutter problems and their solutions.

Damage From Age

If your gutters are older, then they may develop issues like holes, rust, mold and cracks. Once your gutters have reached this point, then you need to call a professional gutter company to assess the system. A pro can figure out if your current gutters are still salvageable. If not, you’ll need to replace your gutters.

Loose Gutters

Poor gutter installation can cause your parts of your gutters to sag and become loose. Gutter clogs can also cause this problem. Clogged gutters tend to collect lots of leaves, mud, twigs and standing water. This extra weight can cause the gutters to loosen and sag. A professional can deal with this issue by cleaning your gutters and properly tightening and reattaching them to your home.

Gutter Leaks

Weather damage can cause your gutters to crack and leak. This kind of gutter damage can also be caused by low-quality materials and poor maintenance. Gutter leaks will allow rain to damage your siding, landscaping, windows and foundation. Fortunately, gutter pros have many methods of repairing cracks using strong, waterproof materials.

Gutter Helmet of Minnesota can protect your gutters from gutter clogs and make sure that you’ll never have to clean your gutters ever again. As a Gutter Helmet systems expert, we can perfectly install your new gutter protection system. Gutter Helmet has an innovative nose-forward design that completely covers the gutters and leaves no vertical openings for debris to enter.
