If your gutter looks like the image above then you need to have your gutter repaired. This is easy to determine if you need help or not, but usually most gutters are not this bad (hopefully yours is not and no disrespect if it is). For the majority of home owners and business professionals they need to rely on instincts and ask when was the last time the gutter was cleaned.
In most situations you should have your gutter cleaned 2 times a year, but if you are around certain trees or in certain climates this may need to be more than twice a year. Read our interested facts page to learn more about how often to get your gutter serviced. Just know that not every place is the same and you need to have your gutters serviced as often as necessary.
There are a number of problems that come with gutters if they are not repaired properly which can be as minor as leaking gutter tracks to as big as foundation problems because of excess water that accumulated from the overflow of water because of clogged tracks. Below we discuss three problems you need to avoid and pay attention to if you below you are having gutter problems.
- Leaks - If you have gutter tracks that are leaking then you need to immediately get them fixed. Leaks can start by having openings at the joints of the tracks, or they can happen by corrosion that has happened over time on the gutter track and caused them to have cracks.
- Blockage - if you live in an area where there are a lot of trees that shed leaves and debris then you need to monitor your gutters often. Blockage can cause your gutter system to overflow or cause water stagnation in certain areas of the roof or gutter system. Stagnated water can bring mosquitoes and other insects, along with the possibility of mold and mildew as well.
- Sag - If you happen to see your gutter system leaning or pulling away from the structure then you need to contact a gutter repair contractor immediately. When your gutter system begins to lean and pull away from the structure this can be a cause for concern with a rotting fascia board, and can lead to a collapse of the whole system.
Any of the problems identified above are causes for concern and you need to contact us or another gutter repair contractor as soon as possible. Any of the issues shown above can lead to major damages in other areas of your home or business.
To avoid any of these issues get a regular checkup of your gutter system so you can avoid these issues and lower your repair and maintenance bill. When you are ready fill out the form on this page or call us for an immediate response.
