Signs That Your Gutter Needs Repair

gutter repair

Gutters play an important role in preventing water from making its way inside your home and damaging the exterior walls, fascia and foundation. Repairing your gutters in timely intervals will protect your home from major water damage. Most gutters need to be repaired at some point to keep your home protected from water damage. Some signs that your gutter needs to be repaired are:

Leaks in the Gutter

Look for cracks and leaks in the gutter. However small it may look, if you notice a crack or a leak its advisable to get it repaired promptly. If the cracks get bigger, they can end up damaging the shingles and fascia boards, and the leaking water can spoil your walls and cause exterior paint to peel off. Repairing that kind of damage will cost you much more than a simple gutter repair. Natural elements such as fallen branches and rust or eroded caulk contribute to causing leaks in the gutter. A professional gutter repair service can get it fixed for you.

Unfastened Hangers

If you notice that the gutters are pulling away from the walls or roof of your home, it is a sign that the hangers have unfastened which caused the gutters to sag. You will need to get the hangers repaired right away. Otherwise, the wrong position of the gutter can cause water to stagnate in the gutter, making the sagging worse and causing the water to flow down from the sides of the building without draining through the gutter system.

Downspouts Not Working

If there is water accumulating in the foundation of your home, it is a sign that your downspouts are not working. This may be caused by a clogs or loose downspouts at the point where they meet the upper gutter. The issue could also be the result of a defect in the gutter system. These unwanted pools of water can easily cause foundation damage, soil erosion and mold. Getting the downspouts repaired can easily prevent this and help you avoid costly and time-consuming replacements in the future.

Water Marks or Orange Flecks

Water Marks or Orange Flecks

If you notice watermarks or orange flecks underneath the gutter, it is most probably because there is unwanted water constantly present in the gutter. It could also be that excess water flows out of the gutter during heavy rain. It is best to get it repaired immediately before it causes bigger damage to the fascia boards, or creates mildew or rust.
