Are your gutters are coming loose? Once the gutter system starts pulling away from the roofline, it won’t be able to provide the smooth draining performance you’ve come to expect, leaving your home vulnerable to water damage. To determine whether your gutters are coming loose, the premier residential and commercial roofer Done-Right Roofing & Sheet Metal Ltd. suggests you look for these warning signs:
- Water dripping behind the gutters. Runoff should be drained through the downspout. If it’s running behind the gutters instead, this is a sign that the system is coming loose.
- The gutters appear visibly loose. Normally, gutters run perfectly straight across your roofline. When they seem to sag or bow down in any area, they are most likely pulling away from the fascia board they should be attached to.
- There’s an opening between the gutters and your exterior wall. Gutters are typically connected almost seamlessly to the exterior wall. If you see a widening gap between them and your home, it’s a clear indication that you have a loose gutter system. Turn to a reliable gutter and roof replacement company like Done-Right Roofing & Sheet Metal Ltd. for the necessary solution.
What Causes Gutters to Come Loose?
The most common reason is congestion. Leaves, pine needles, bird’s nests, and other loose debris can accumulate inside the gutters and lead to blockages. These–along with backed-up rainwater–creates unnecessary strain on the system, causing the gutters to sag. Another reason is poor installation. When the gutters aren’t pitched and attached correctly along the roofline, they’ll start pulling away over time. Fortunately, these can be easily avoided with the help of an experienced gutter contractor.
