How do you know when you need a gutter repair?

Gutters are designed to last, in order to protect your building from all forms of weather during any season. However, gutters may begin to show wear after a few years, requiring gutter maintenance, gutter repair or even upgrade. Due to living in the UK, a lot of the wear and tear may be due to the changeable weather we are exposed to, plus the quality of the gutters installed. You will know you have a problem if you see any of these signs…

Cracks require gutter repair!

Gutters are made to prevent water and moisture damage to your building by keeping water away from the structure. If you can see any cracks in your gutters, whether they be big or small, you must get your gutters repaired or you may eventually have to fully replace them.

Puddles of water

If you are unable to spot any cracks due to the gutters being high up you can also find signs on the floor. If water begins to gather around the foundation of your building or mildew, it could indicate that your gutters have a problem. This may happen because there is a clog or a problem with the gutter system. Regardless, regular gutter maintenance should identify this problem, meaning you will find the problem quicker.

Gutter sagging

Spotting this issue is relatively easy as gutters should never be away from the structure of the building. This could indicate that your gutters are blocked and due to the heavy weight in them they are pulling away from the building. This issue may require you to get your gutters repaired as it is essential that the gutter remains against the structure to prevent water damage.

These are just some of the main reasons you may require a gutter repair, however, you should look out for any changes in regards to your gutters in an attempt to avoid a full gutter replacement. Gutters that are not working correctly can cause major issues such as attracting insects, interior flooding, landscaping erosion and much moreā€¦ To avoid this make sure to have regular gutter cleaning to ensure they are working correctly. Additionally, this would highlight any issues early on meaning if you require a gutter repair the issues won’t be as costly.
