Top 3 Causes of Sagging Gutters

By December 2, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters are important to your home as they channel rainwater away from the structure and into the proper drainage systems. They also help prevent leaks and other types of water damage that can compromise your exterior, interior and foundation.

Sagging Gutters

Due to different factors, gutters may sag over time. This problem creates gaps where water can run behind the gutter or over its edge, causing flooded basements and damaged structures. Gutter Helmet® of Greater Denver and Northern Colorado explains the main causes of sagging gutters and our permanent solution.

Warped Material

Gutters are typically made of vinyl, steel or aluminum. These materials can contract and expand due to temperature changes in winter and summer, which can cause warping and sagging. You can prevent this from happening by getting gutters with a non-corrosive coating.

Trapped Debris

The most common reason for sagging gutters is the heavy weight of trapped water, leaves, pine needles and other debris in a system. This blockage pulls the gutter away from its supporting fascia board and causes it to sag.

Some homeowners install a leaf filter in Englewood, Colorado, to prevent debris from entering the gutter system. If you want a more efficient and lasting solution, we highly recommend the Gutter Helmet gutter guard. It has a unique design that effectively keeps your gutters clear, allowing them to handle heavy rainfall with ease. You also won’t have to worry about gutter upkeep again.

Poor Installation

Every gutter installer must place gutter hangers properly. Failure to do so will result in uneven weight distribution and stress, causing the gutter system to sag. Make sure that your gutters are aligned and sloped properly, so they will not prematurely sag even when water accumulates in them.

Prevent sagging gutters for a healthy, damage-free home. We offer Gutter Helmet, an excellent substitute for a leaf filter in Englewood, Colorado, to keep your home safe and protected. Our experts can install this top-notch solution onto your existing system to ensure its optimum performance. Call us today at (800) 824-3772 to get started.
