Gutter repairs should be a part of any preventative maintenance plan that you perform on your home. Working gutters are essential to keeping water from damaging the foundation of your home. Leaking gutters may also cause damage to the exterior portion of your home and lead to internal leaks.
As part of your maintenance plan, you should clean your gutters and inspect them for necessary repairs twice a year. This gives you the best options in preventing serious damage to your home.
Cleaning your gutters is the perfect time to inspect them for problems. Some of the issues that you will want to check include;
Gutters detaching from the roof. Over time the screws holding your gutters in can back out of the wood and make the system weak. This could lead to collapse. Gutters can also detach from the roof due to excessive weight from ice or debris buildup or age of the gutter system.
Cracks in the seams. Depending on what materials your gutters are made from, cracks can occur over time due to exposure to the weather. These cracks can lead to restricted water flow or water flowing down the side of your home.
Connection points. Check your entire system where it connects to each other to make sure that the connections are solid and that water is not escaping.
Rust spots. Some of the older gutter systems on homes are made from materials that will rust over time. Exposure to the weather and debris can cause the gutters to lose their protective coating and they will begin to rust. The trust may not have gone through the gutters, but it will eventually. Rust spots are one very large indicator that you may need to replace your gutter system in its entirety to a newer type of material.
