Marietta’s Most Dependable Gutter Repair
Gutters help you manage the water that pours down during a rainstorm. However, they may sustain damage from the wind and rain if the storm is violent.
Gutters prevent water damage to your foundation and the rest of your house. They can last at least 20 years when properly maintained.
Here are some signs your gutters need attention:
- Peeling paint
When gutters get damaged, they can no longer prevent excess water from flowing around and into your house. This water can cause lots of damage and cost you a lot of money. We can send our experts to fix any problems before they become worse.
Holes and cracks can form in your gutters. They are more easily fixed when caught early on. We can use sealant to plug them and prevent them from growing.
If your gutters weren’t installed with the correct slope, it may prevent them from draining. Generally, gutters need to drop around a half inch for every ten feet. This helps control the flow of water.
Water is not the only thing that can get into your gutters. Leaves and other debris can sometimes clog them. It is a good idea to clean your gutters at least once or twice a year to prevent this.
Fascia, which is underneath your gutters near your roof, is usually made from wood. It can rot if exposed to too much water. When that happens, it can cause problems with your gutters. The spikes holding your gutters to your house can become loose. This will make your gutters detach from your home.
When leaves and other debris accumulate in your gutters for a long time, seeds can get in and sprout. This adds more weight to your gutters, which can also cause them to detach.
Gutter lengths that are longer than a few feet use joints to connect them. Over time, these can separate because of the buildup of debris, heavy water flow, and age. This will cause water to fall from the joints instead of the downspouts, which isn’t where you want the water to go.
Insects and birds can also make homes in your gutters. If there is standing water, mosquitos will hatch. If your gutters are dry, birds may build a nest. We can come and safely remove any animals or pests from your drainage system.
