Gutters are designed to remove rainwater away from the base of your home with the help of downspouts. In order to be effective, gutters and downspouts must be clear of debris. They must also be properly pitched, or angled, toward the downspouts to encourage the flow of rainwater.
4 Signs Your Gutters Aren’t Working
If you spot debris piling in your gutters, water stains running down your siding, or your gutters pulling away from the fascia, you likely have clogged gutters.
If water sits stagnant in your gutters, they lay too flat. If the water overshoots the gutters completely, they’re angled too steeply to hold water.
If you spot water dripping from your gutter system, you may have leaky gutter joints or holes from wear and tear.
If your gutters appear to be sagging, they’re likely pulling away from your soffit and fascia. This can be caused by the heavyweight of debris or too few gutter hangers.
The Damages of Clogged Gutters
When water is not diverted properly through your gutters and away from your home, it can have serious, far-reaching consequences. Clogged gutters can impact your entire home resulting in serious damages like:
Rotting Fascia & Soffit
