One of the benefits of having the best gutter guards to protect your gutters is not needing to worry about your roof during rainy days. However, if you hear lots of noise coming from your gutters when it rains, this could be a sign of trouble.

Noisy gutters are not normal. Read on as Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville explains what causes noisy gutters and what to do about it.

Clanging and Banging Sounds

Gutters are typically held in place by brackets, which are attached to the fascia with nails and fasteners. Over time, these connections can loosen, causing the brackets to noisily clang against the gutters. The noise can become louder when it’s particularly windy. If this is happening, contact your local gutter and roofing company for repairs.

Scraping Noises

Leaves and other debris often find their way into your gutters. This problem is more common during the fall when nearby trees shed their foliage. This can lead to clogs, stopping rainwater from flowing freely through your gutters and downspouts. The same debris can also scrape the insides of the troughs, resulting in strange sounds coming from the gutters. You can avoid this problem with regular maintenance or by installing an effective gutter protection system.

Poor Installation

Even the best gutter guards can’t fix the issues caused by poor installation of the gutters and downspouts. This is why it’s extremely important to only trust skilled and experienced contractors to handle all your gutter construction projects and avoid creaking noises caused by uneven installation of the brackets and troughs.
