Gutter Repair or Replacement

Maintaining your home’s gutter system involves cleaning and integrity inspections that many homeowners do not perform. Roofing and gutter repair is crucial to sustaining your gutter system over time. Exposure to harsh elements is unavoidable but proper roof gutter repair and maintenance can prevent damage to your gutters and home. Gutter damage can result from heavy rainstorms, windstorms, or ice dams.  Under these conditions, gutters can detach from the house resulting in expensive damages to the property.

Clogged Gutters

A gutter functions to carry water from your roof to a designated area on your property. When a gutter is clogged by debris during heavy rainfalls, drainage of the roof can stop or slow.  Improper drainage causes rot to fascia boards, and allows water to enter walls and  ceilings.

Sagging Gutters

Sagging gutter repair is required when the weight of leaves, dirt, and twigs  clogging the gutter cause it to sag.


Holes and Leaking Gutters

Clogging creates holes in gutters resulting in water leaks that damage property.


Improperly Pitched Gutter

Proper installation of a gutter system requires a professional that can gauge the slope of a roof. A roof’s slope angle must be at least a quarter-inch for every 10 feet of gutter. If there is standing water on a roof, the pitch of the roof needs to be adjusted.


Corrosion

Many factors lead to gutter corrosion: poor handling and storage, poor installation, and clogs are a few.. Gutter corrosion can result in gutter failure such as leaks and breakage.


Pests

Bees, wasps, rodents, termites, chipmunks are common pests that live in  gutters. Debris in gutters attracts these rodents especially if the roof is near trees allowing  them easy access.  These pests and their nests block drainage causing damage to the gutter system.
