Gutters are one of the most important parts of your home’s defense system against seasonal changes. Your gutter system serves as a conduit for directing the flow of rainwater away from the base of your home. Gutters help in keeping the foundation of your home, sides, soffit, walls and fascia safe from any water damage. To keep the home efficiently protected, the gutter system must be pitched properly. Failing to do so can lead to the following problems:
Faulty Pitch: The gutter system is usually installed at a slight angle or in such a way as to allow the water to flow through the drains and downspouts easily. The pitch is typically at a slight slope. If it was improperly installed, it can cause spilling or an accumulation of water rather than allowing the smooth flow of water to the downspouts.
Downspout Placement: Water can begin to gather in the middle of the gutter if the downspouts are not installed properly. This results in rusting, rook damages, mosquitos, side damage, foundation damage and overall damage to the gutter system and the roof.
Defective Hangers: The purpose of the hangers is to serve as brackets that attach the entire gutter system to your home. If the hangers are defective or damaged, the gutters may fall off, especially during a heavy rainy season. If they are positioned too far apart, the gutters may sag.
