Signs of Gutter Problems

Gutters play a key role in protecting your home, foundation, and more from water damage. Gutters that aren’t performing correctly may seem like a small issue, but they can pose big problems. It’s important to check your gutters regularly to make sure they’re performing as intended. To make sure you know what to look for, consider the following checklist.

Rust and Cracks

Leaks can start forming and damage your home if your gutters are rusted or cracking. Do you see any cracks in your gutters, or rust starting to form? If so, they may need replacing.

Pooling Water

Standing water around your foundation, or under your home can cause serious issues, including rot, mold, or even structural damage. Gutters that aren’t working properly or missing effective downspouts can create issues with pooling water. If you see this, have a professional take a look to determine the right course of action.

Sagging or Pulling Away

Your gutters may need to be repaired or replaced if see them sagging in spots. When your gutters are sagging they are unable to perform as intended since their pitch and angle may be compromised. This could lead to clogs or leaks.

Leaks on Interior Walls

While leaks inside your home could come from a variety of sources, it’s important to check your gutters for leaks if you’re noticing damage near an exterior wall and your ceiling.

If you see any damage, peeling paint, or rotting on your siding or window trims, it could be because your gutters aren’t performing as intended. Water that should be getting diverted away could be dripping onto window trims, or splashing out of a clogged gutter and damaging your siding.

Exterior Damage

If you see any damage, peeling paint, or rotting on your siding or window trims, it could be because your gutters aren’t performing as intended. Water that should be getting diverted away could be dripping onto window trims, or splashing out of a clogged gutter and damaging your siding.

Clogs

Nobody enjoys cleaning out their gutters, but falling leaves, debris, and roof grit can enter your gutters and lead to big clogs. Those clogs can lead to overflowing gutters and water pooling around your foundation. Consider installing a gutter guard to keep your gutters protected, and avoid the hassle of cleaning your gutters every season.
