Common Gutter Issues and How to Fix Them

What are the most common gutter problems and how do you fix them? Here’s a quick overview: 

Overflowing Gutters 

It’s important to regularly clean your gutters. Otherwise, leaves and other debris that land in the gutters and downspouts can form a clog, causing rainwater to overflow. To unclog your gutters, a contractor will have to manually remove the debris and readjust the downspouts in case they were dislodged. 

If you just don’t have the time to clean your gutters, installing gutter guards is an alternative solution. Gutter guards prevent leaves and all kinds of debris from entering and clogging your gutters, reducing the maintenance needs of your gutters. Gutter Helmet® is the only brand of gutter covers on the market with a Never Clean Your Gutters® guarantee.  

Sagging Gutters 

Your gutter system might buckle under the weight of accumulated debris and rainwater, causing sections of your gutters to sag. Just a slight tilt can cause water to gather and stagnate in parts of your gutter system. To realign sagging gutters, a contractor might need to install new hangers or readjust them, if the hangers are still in good condition. 

Gutter Leaks 

If accumulated debris isn’t removed and the gutters aren’t realigned, the seams or joints of your gutter system might start to pull apart, creating leaks. In most cases, a contractor will need to install new gutters. Since seams are a significant weak point of conventional gutter systems, you might want to install seamless gutters. Without such structural weaknesses, seamless gutters last longer than a conventional gutter system.
