The gutters on your home are hard working. They take all the water that hits your roof and redirects it down through the downspout and away from the foundation. Gutters can work for years without any problems. However, over time, they can start to develop problems that need attention. That is when you need to call for gutter repair.
Gutters are installed with a slight slope so that the water they catch gets directed into the downspouts. Over time, the gutter may start to develop debris and become clogged, causing the water to overflow or possibly go in the wrong direction. The gutter may develop low spots due to loose fasteners. Damage can also be caused by falling limbs that can tilt the gutter in the wrong direction. Correcting the flow of the water is one of the most common gutter repairs.
Hopefully, your gutters are seamless so that you don't need to worry about leaks between the gutter joints. Even seamless gutters, however, can develop leaks at the end caps. When the adhesive or mechanical fasteners start to fail, water will find its way out. If you see water streaming from your gutters where it should not be, you have a leak the needs to be plugged. Stopping leaks may involve reattaching end caps or plugging damaged spots along the gutter track. If gutters are installed properly with the correct sealant, they will not develop leaks. I guarantee my work to not to leak or come loose from the house.
Another common point of failure happens where the gutters meet the downspouts. They are usually attached firmly with a combination of adhesive and mechanical fasteners. However, over time, downspouts can work loose. It may be due to wear and tear, or damage caused by falling limbs or errant garden equipment. Reattaching the downspouts is a simple repair that will keep your gutters flowing like they should.
