Gutter Maintenance and Repair Tips
Regular gutter maintenance is a much-needed residential roofing service for Texas homes. While most people understand that gutters can get clogged up over time, additional issues can also lead to a range of problems. Let’s take a look at the purpose of guttering and the damage that many homes face.
How Do Gutters Protect Your Home?
Gutters are often the most overlooked feature of a home; however, they’re actually one of the most important features. Gutters help drain the rainwater and moisture that falls from the roof of a home, directing the water into the downspouts. If your home’s gutters are clogged or broken, the rainwater and moisture accumulate on the roof, causing damage. Or, the water will leak into your basement, cause wood rot or foundation damage, or overwater your landscape.
Gutters are extremely important, and keeping them well-maintained, cleaned, and damage-free is even more important. Spring is the best time to repair your broken or damaged gutters. If your gutters are uneven, they’ve blown off, or they’re not working properly, make repairs before the heavy springtime rain comes down and causes water damage to your basement, landscape, or home’s foundation. We also have many key tips for conducting residential roof maintenance during the summer.
Below are some of the most common gutter problems homeowners should have fixed:
- Clogged Gutters
- Sagging Gutters
- Gutters Pulling Away from the House
- Leaks and Holes
- Improperly Pitched Gutters
- Downspouts Draining too Close to the Foundation
- Missing/Blown Off Gutters
Keep in mind, these problems often extend beyond the immediate area of concern. Clogging and leaks put pressure on other areas of the roof, and shingles, flashing, seals and other elements are also compromised. Residential roof repairs are required to properly address and remedy these additional issues.
