A poorly performing gutter system will cause water-related damage to various parts of your home, including the roof, basement and foundation. To prevent severe damage, you have to act quickly and watch out for telltale signs of gutter damage.
If you see any of these three issues, it means your gutters are coming loose, and you need to call a residential roofing and gutter company ASAP.
Water Dripping Behind the Gutters
If water is leaking between the gutters and fascia board, it means your gutter system is not draining properly. It’s also likely that your gutters are clogged. Call an expert immediately to fix and clean and your gutter system.
Visibly Loose Gutters
Loose gutters are easy to spot because you see them sagging in certain areas. Gutters are supposed to look straight. So, if they seem to bow down or sag in any sections, your trusted roof repair contractor can reattach the gutters with new hardware.
Loose Gutter Screws
Gutter nails or gutter spikes are big nails that go through the gutter. They attach the gutters to the fascia board, gripping the nail tightly to keep the gutter system in place. When these nails become more visible or start pulling back out, it means your gutters are coming loose. You can re-hammer the nails back into the fascia. However, the fascia board might get worn out with repeated hammering. It’s best to call a professional and have them inspect the gutter material.
