Your gutters protect your home from leaks, foundation damage, and stained siding by redirecting rainwater into your downspouts. That’s why you need to clean your gutters and inspect them for damage regularly. Here are some common gutter problems:
As an expert in gutters, we recommend staying on the lookout for gutter clogs. These form when dirt, leaves, needles, and debris block rainwater from flowing into your gutters. This rainwater eventually overflows, causing damage to your home. We suggest cleaning your gutters regularly. Unfortunately, this is a time-consuming and tiring task. It’s best to hire a professional to make the process quick and convenient.
Your gutters need to have an imperceptible slope towards your downspout. If this pitch is off, you may still end up with overflowing gutters. Poorly pitched gutters stem from incorrect gutter installations or your house settling.
