Gutter Issues to Lookout For

sarasota springs gutter maintenanceA professionally installed gutter system on your Saratoga Springs home can last upwards to 30 years, but regular maintenance is required to make it last that long. You may not think of your gutters often because they’re not as visible as other aspects of your home, but you need to get them on your routine household task list and hire a professional Saratoga Springs gutter company to help you keep them working without incident. If you maintain your gutters, there’s little likelihood they’ll cause roof or foundation damage and basement flooding.

Here are three gutter issues to lookout for:

Clogged Gutters

Gutters are in place to move water away from your home to decrease the chances of water damaging your home. If your gutters become clogged with dirt, debris, or leaves, the water will overflow and seep into your home’s foundation and cause expensive repairs.

The best time to clean out your gutters is when the weather is dry. When you clean out the debris in your gutter system, you’ll need to run water through your gutters to make sure that clogs are eliminated. You may want to consider hiring a professional Saratoga Springs gutter company at least once a year to take care of your gutter maintenance.

Leaking Gutters

Sunlight and harsh weather conditions can cause your gutters to form cracks. If you have small cracks in your gutters, leaks could develop. Fortunately, this problem is easy to spot and just as easy to address. You simply need to apply silicone sealant, and you’ll have those leaks repaired in no time.

Loose or Missing Gutters

Loose and missing gutters are vulnerable to damage during periods of extreme rainy, windy, or snowy weather. Not having your gutters repaired may cause your home to be damaged by the water flowing from the roof, so you’ll want to address your damaged or missing gutters before you find yourself dealing with those other expensive issues.
