Gutter maintenance is important for every homeowner, as your gutters play an integral role in protecting your property from water damage. However, maintaining your gutters involves more than giving them a look over.

In this post, Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville, a leading supplier of the best gutter covers, shares four important questions every homeowner should ask when assessing their gutters.

  1. Is There Any Visible Damage? – When assessing the state of your gutters, look for visible damage. This could include cracks in the gutters, or gutters that are pulling away from the roof. If you identify any damage, consult with a professional gutter contractor about the best solution.

  1. Is Water Pooling at the Foundation? – Moisture is one of the worst enemies of your home’s foundation as it can cause cracks and mold growth. During storms, check if there are large amounts of water pooling around your foundation. If that’s the case, then your gutters may need to be replaced because they aren’t properly diverting the water away from your home.

  1. Is There Any Plant Growth or Animals Nesting? – Check for plant growth or nesting animals in your gutters. These problems can typically be addressed through thorough gutter cleaning.

  1. Are Your Gutters Constantly Overflowing? – If you’ve cleared your gutters of debris but notice they’re still constantly overflowing, then it’s likely your gutters need to be repaired or replaced.
