As a homeowner there are many details you must pay attention to, to ensure that your home is and remains in good conditions. With so many different things to be aware of, you may overlook a crucial element that is integral to the very foundation of your home; the gutters.
Gutters help to divert water and other forms of precipitation away from your home, which protects your landscape, prevents flooding, erosion, and the growth of mold or mildew.
If you don’t have your gutters maintenance and routinely cleaned, they may already be showing signs of wear.
Here are some common signs that indicate your gutter system may need attention:
Interior Leaks/ Flooding
If you notice your roof leaking or your basement becoming flooded after a particularly heavy downpour that can indicate that your home’s gutter system is not working properly.
Take a look at your home’s exterior. If there is any damage to your exterior paint job, siding, woodwork, or brick, this could be another sign of an improper gutter system. If your gutters become overflowed the water will begin to run down the side of your home causing water damage to the outside.
Sagging/ Drooping Gutters
This is a clear sign that your home’s gutter system needs immediate repair. If your gutters begin to sag or have cracks this means that they can easily break.
It is best to deal with these issues right away especially before winter sets in. If you live in a climate with heavy snowfalls this could overwhelm an already weak gutter system.
