Signs You Need Gutter Repair Services

Our repairing team will help you spot signs of needing gutter repair services. Knowing these signs will help you stop the problem from getting worse. Moreover, you’ll save money on additional costs caused by water damage that may affect your siding, roof, or foundation. Be on the lookout for the following problems with your gutters:

Cracks or Holes: Noticing cracks or holes in your gutters is a sign of needing gutter repair services. Gutters are typically made from aluminum or galvanized steel which can stand up against the elements well. That said, they are easily capable of developing holes or cracks. Water escapes through these openings directly onto the side of the house or foundation.

Gaps: Any openings between gutter connections require your attention. Your gutters should be a single solid piece. If there are multiple pieces, then they should be properly sealed to avoid the escape of water.

Sagging: Gutters hanging lower or away from the roof are most likely not properly secured. Brackets can become loose over time which is the most common reason this problem may occur. Another reason may be an excessive amount of materials in the gutters. Blockages from leaves, twigs, and other debris could cause the gutter to hold water rather than expel it. The weight of everything may weigh down the gutter.

Missing Hardware: Missing screws and brackets can end up amongst your landscaping. When you find any type of missing hardware around the edge of your roof, your gutters are likely the source.

Rusting or Peeling Paint: Isolated paint peeling may be due to a leak within your gutters. As for rust, your gutters should be repaired or replaced in this instance. Rust can easily spread to the rest of the gutter, causing greater water damage.

Pooling Water at Foundation: When water pools at the foundation of your home, it is likely caused by poor drainage from the gutters. Gutter repairs can identify the problem and provide a solution that will prevent future water pooling.

Moisture in Attic: Moisture in the attic can be caused by a lot of things, but your gutters are certainly an option. Even though you may not see water pooling at your foundation, it could be going into your attic instead. Check your attic for any signs of moisture. The presence of mold or mildew will be a sign that moisture is finding its way into your attic.

Galvanized steel gutters are another common material and last just as long as aluminum. Copper gutters are growing in popularity, but they are more expensive. However, they will last you up to 50 years.

Are half-round gutters better than K-style gutters?

K-style gutters are the most common gutter profile as they offer an effective solution to gathering and transporting rainwater. Plus, they fit most home designs out there. However, half-round gutters have grown in popularity in recent years due to their unique design. They function just as well as K-style gutters but are not suitable for all styles of homes.

Half-round gutters resemble a tube that has been cut in half rather than the flat edges K-style gutters feature. Homes built before 1950 typically used more rounded features, which made half-round gutters perfect matches. Today, half-round gutters have an aesthetic and appeal many homeowners crave. For this reason, half-round gutters have boomed in popularity.

Half-round and K-style gutters are both great options for gutters. Neither have notable advantages or disadvantages over the other. It primarily comes down to what aesthetics you want for your home.
