Solutions to 3 Common Gutter Problems

By October 5, 2015No Comments

Keep your gutters in shape and you’ll reduce the risk of unexpected expenses down the road. Neglect them, and you’re putting the structural integrity of your home at risk. Spotting gutter problems early on can be all it takes to dodge inconveniences and unnecessary expenses. Learn the three most common gutter problems and the best ways to overcome them.

Sagging Gutters

Sagging gutters expose vulnerable areas of your siding and keep rainwater from draining. This may lead to rust, leaks, and eventually mold growth.

Once your gutters begin to pull away from your home, expect that you will soon be hanging gutters in Arden NC, or the local area. Sometimes, you can solve the problem by repairing or replacing any broken spikes or hangers. Most of the time, however, only the installation of new gutters can save your fascia from rotting and your entire roofing system from collapsing.

Leaks

First, find the source of the problem. Focus on inspecting the seams and re-apply sealant to them. Smaller leaks and holes far from the seams can be sealed with a patch or a bit of caulk. If corrosion caused the problem, it is best to hire experts to keep it from happening again in the future.

Clogged Gutters

Clogged gutters will overflow and you will begin to notice water stains, pooling water, and mildew, among other signs. Standing water may also freeze, which may cause damage to the structure of your gutter system.
