You want your gutters to stay in good shape because it is one of your home’s main lines of defense against water damage. A compromised gutter system can cause problems to different parts of your exterior, such as the roof, siding, windows, and even your landscaping. One gutter issue you should watch out for is leaking. 

Discover possible reasons water is leaking behind your gutters from a trusted provider of Gutter Helmet® systems.  

Lack of Drip Edge

If your contractor did not add a drip edge during your roof installation, water can leak behind your gutters. Today, experts recommend installing a drip edge to the roof, and it’s necessary for some homes. You can ask a local roofer to install one on your roof if it doesn’t have this component. 

Poorly Installed Gutters

Improper installation is another common reason water can leak behind gutters. When gutters are not installed correctly or aren’t fastened properly to the fascia board, leaking will occur. It could be that your fascia board is rotting, and the weight of the eavestroughs causes the fasteners to loosen from the fascia. Take a look at your gutters to see if they are secured properly and if the fascia is rotting. Rotten fascia would need replacement. 

Clogged Gutters

Debris such as leaves, branches, and twigs can clog your gutters. The easiest way to avoid this issue is regular inspections, cleaning, and maintenance. For your safety, it’s best to leave gutter cleaning and repairs to experienced professionals. Investing in Gutter Helmet® systems can also help homeowners save money on maintenance because they won’t need to get their gutters cleaned as much.
