Top 3 Common Gutter Problems You Should Know About

Category: Gutter Systems

Gutter Maintenance Sarasota SpringsIt’s true that one of the most common components of the household that homeowners tend to neglect is the gutter system. Yet, ironically, your gutters take care of one of the most important jobs, and that job is carrying water from your roof to the downspout and away from the foundation of your home.

If water was allowed to linger and damage your roofing system, you’d have a lot of expensive problems. Same goes for letting water accumulate at the foundation of your home.
Simply put, your gutters help prevent structural damage and so it’s in your best interest to take good care of them. One of the best ways to do that is to know about common issues that can arise and be on the lookout for symptoms.

Watch for These Red Flags

Get proactive about preventative gutter maintenance and you can greatly reduce the likelihood of experiencing unexpected emergency repairs such as:

  • Clogged gutters are the most common problem homeowners suffer. When this system is clogged and can’t drain properly, water will start to overflow and goes directly to where you don’t want it – the foundation. Plus, it puts your roof and siding at risk of damages. Regular cleanings and transitioning to seamless gutters that don’t collect debris as easily will help prevent clogs.
  • Your gutters could need repairs and you may not even know it. The most common cause of repairs needs is weather and even though we don’t experience freezes, we have plenty of rain, wind, and other problems associated with tropical weather conditions. It’s important to visually scan your gutters from time to time and look for knocked down sections, sections that need to be replaced, or loose gutters, just to name a few.
  • As with your roof, leaks and holes are no good for your gutters. Since this causes the water to spill out where it is and to the foundation of your home, this problem needs to be addressed in a prompt and professional manner.
