Did you know that 9 out of 10 gutters that are experiencing issues outside of gutter cleaning can be repaired and don’t have to be replaced – saving you a lot!? You’d be surprised how resilient and flexible a gutter system can be. If you are in need of gutter repair, chances are they are experiencing one of the following problems:
The most common gutter repairs:
Loose/Fallen Gutters – Is your gutter coming loose and leaning away from your home? Even if it’s fully fallen off, chances are that you don’t need a new gutter and the existing one can be properly resecured back on your home.
Joint/Endcap Leaks – Do you see water leaking out of corners every time it rains? Chances are the join seals have been broken over time and need to be properly resealed to stop the leaking/dripping.
Pitch Adjustment – Do you have water overflowing from your corners or in the middle? If this isn’t a cleaning issue then there’s a large chance that your gutter pitch is off and the water is getting stuck in the middle or flowing in the wrong direction away from the downspout (pipe going down your home). In this case, your gutter needs to be unscrewed and resecured again with the right pitch.
Nails Popping Out – Does your gutter look fine, but you’re starting to see some nails coming out of it? It’s time to resecure your gutter with new screw-in hangers. You’d think simply nailing these nails back in will do the job, but if they are already coming out, they will pop right back out shortly after again. We need to nail them in and then add an additional screw-in hanger the hold it down for good.
Partial Replacement – In the rare case that a gutter section has come apart and cannot be reused, you would need a partial replacement. There is no need to fully replace the whole gutter system if just a small piece or section is compromised. Save lots of money by having the particle piece or section replaced on your gutter system. This can be a top section, or a downspout which is the pipe going down your home the properly leads the water flow to the ground.
