Common Types of Gutter Damage
Because your gutters line the roof around your home, there are several ways they can become damaged. Wind, heavy rain, snow, ice, tree branches, leaves, animals, and various other objects can damage your gutters or cause them or pull away from your home. There are many signs of gutter damage and fortunately, most can be seen just by paying attention to them during the next rainstorm.
When water stays in the gutters and is not flowing away from your home, sections can start to sag. The added weight of stagnant water weakens the structural integrity of your gutter and their fasteners. Be sure to fix these areas before they fall off completely.
If water is coming through your gutters at the joints or other areas, the seal needs to be repaired. Over time these seams can expand and contract and become separated from one another. Even a slow drip can cause damage to your home’s foundation.
Often a sign of incorrect pitch or a clog, your gutters will fill with water to the point they overflow the sides. While it may seem like water is only coming over away from your home, it is actually up against your roof and fascia board as well which can be a big problem.
Over time, leaves, twigs, and other debris can travel down your gutters into your downspouts. If you develop a block in your downspout its often hard to find the problem. You’ll see some of the symptoms mentioned before but you’ll need more than a ladder to locate the issue.
Loose or Missing Brackets
As the elements and changes in temperature affect the seals of your gutters, the brackets and fasteners that hold the gutter to your home can become compromised as well. When these brackets are missing or no longer holding, other areas of your gutter may fail.
If your gutters aren’t pitched or draining properly in the winter months, you risk ice buildup. When the ice dams build up and over the edges of your gutters it adds immense weight and can expand under the roof and into your walls exposing your home to interior damage.
All wood will rot eventually when continually exposed to the elements. If you have an older home or had clogged gutters or other damage in the past, your fascia could slowly be rotting and the fasteners that keep your gutters attached to your home could be losing their hold.
Emergency Gutter Repair
Heavy rain and strong winds can put a lot of stress on your gutters. They can also cause trees and branches to fall that can damage or dislodge your gutters. If you have experienced a storm recently it’s important to check your gutters for any damage. Emmons offers emergency gutter repair services should a recent storm or other circumstances create an immediate need. Having your gutter system repaired as soon as possible will prevent small issues from getting worse or causing costly damage to your home.
Do I Need New Gutters?
If your gutters have more than one problem area, it might make sense to install new gutters. Often when one problem occurs, it will cause issues elsewhere even when the initial issue is corrected. There have been significant advances in technology over the years with gutter construction and installation. Older homes can benefit from new gutters because they can correct any pitch issues that have developed over time and can add a nice aesthetic.
