Common Rain Gutter Problems

Having trouble with your rain gutters lately? It could be time to make some repairs to the gutters in order to prevent damage to the roof and siding of your home. Here are a few common issues found in gutters.

One of the most common problems you’ll find is holes in the gutter. Since the main priority with your gutter system is to prevent water from dripping down the siding and eroding soil around the base of your home, holes can cause a lot of trouble if left alone. Eventually the holes can grow larger, and rust can weaken the structure of the gutters even further.

Gutters that are built with seams can wear out and allow for water to seep through cracks where the seams start to weaken. Having the seams and joints repaired and sealed will prevent water from leaking through and causing problems with staining the siding. While seamless gutters haveĀ less opportunity for leaks the problem can still arise so make sure you inspect them occasionally.

The sleeves that hold your gutters in place along the roof can weaken over time as well. Eventually sections of the gutter can pull away from the house completely, leaving the siding and foundation of your home exposed. When this happens, having gutter restoration experts come in and re-attach the gutters and stabilize them will ensure that the issue doesn’t persist and cause more damage to your home.
