Four Signs You Need Gutter Repair

Gutters installed on a home

Gutters play an integral part in protecting your property from water damage. Whether you’re a business owner who wants to keep rainwater out of your store or a homeowner trying to avoid water damage, every person in Southwest Florida has a use for gutters. But what happens when your gutters are damaged?

Damaged gutters can cause many issues for any property owner. Overflowed water, inadequate draining, and property damage are just some of the things you can expect to deal with if your gutters aren’t up to par. To help you keep your gutters in top shape, our roofing and gutter experts at Allstate Construction Roofing Inc. have created this guide to recognize the signs that you need gutter repair services:

1. Gutters Look Uneven

Uneven gutters are usually the result of an improper installation. Other issues, like severe weather or heavy rainfalls, could also cause them to appear uneven. The main concern for uneven gutters is that water will not properly flow. Once the water doesn’t flow properly, it will cause a multitude of other issues for your property.

The good news is that this issue can usually be fixed without bringing a professional team out to your property. Using many online tutorials, you should be able to find the problem section on your gutters and apply a quick, easy solution.

2. Water Is Pooling on the Ground

If you find water pooling on the ground, it’s likely that something is blocking the water’s path inside your gutter. The usual culprit is that storm debris, such as tree limbs or groups of leaves, has cluttered your gutters and prevented water from running off properly. However, there are other causes such as poorly angled gutters or inadequate gutter material.

Most times this issue can be fixed on your own. By regularly cleaning out your gutters, you can help keep your water flowing properly. With that said, there are professional options that exist, such as having gutter guards installed, that take manual labor out of gutter cleaning. Additionally, poorly angled gutters would have to be removed and reinstalled by professionals.

3. Hanging Hardware

The last thing you want to do is roam your flower bed and find pieces from your gutters laying there. While it might seem like a mild annoyance, it’s a sign that a larger issue is emerging.

When gutters aren’t secured properly, it can lead to water overflow and strong weather removing the gutter hardware from the gutter itself. Once the gutter hardware starts to fall off, it puts your entire gutter system at risk of collapsing. This is an issue that cannot be done yourself and must be addressed promptly by a professional.

4. Mildew or Water Stains In Your Attic

Water stains in your attic can often be traced back to a clogged gutter. As we touched on earlier, clogged gutters can cause the water to build up and then overflow instead of being properly directed away from your business or home. Once the water builds up in your gutters, it will start to seep through the walls and into your property, usually into the attic.

Not only are water stains a sore sight for your business or home, but they can also cause the structural integrity of your property to falter. In addition to this, mildew or mold can be a safety hazard and get you in trouble with local governing boards.
