Gutters are susceptible to issues due to their constant exposure to the elements. That said, cleaning gutters with gutter guards is a must to keep the system in good shape. Otherwise, gutter issues can threaten the structural integrity of your living space. Learn what causes your gutters to sag in today’s blog post.

Why Your Gutters Sag

Sagging gutters can put your safety at risk. That’s because the system can collapse at the most unexpected times. To prevent such a hazard, get in touch with your local gutter contractor to help you fix the damage.

Here are the common reasons this problem occurs:

  • Improper Installation – Improperly installed gutters may not have the right alignment, which can lead to rainwater settling instead of draining properly. This might be because the hangers are installed too far apart, which leads to uneven weight distribution.

  • Warping – Fluctuating temperatures can cause the gutters to expand and contract. Eventually, the system will warp and pull away from your home.

  • Clogging – Accumulated debris in your gutters prevents proper flow of rainwater. Additionally, the extra weight of the dirt building up in the area can cause the system to sag. Nonetheless, you can eliminate this problem by cleaning gutters with gutter guards.
