Gutters keep your roof protected against excessive damage.

Keeping your gutters at their best is one of the most important things to do for your roof. They play a major role in the health of your home structure and roofing system. When a storm comes through, your gutters collect damaging materials such as debris, roofing materials, debris, and water. This system then carries these away from your roof, preventing further damage. Without this system, you can have excessive damage such as mold and rot. This is why it is so important to keep this system at its best. How can you tell if your gutters need repair? 

Signs You Need Gutter Repair

#1 Your Gutters Are Rusted and Cracked

Rust and cracks are a sign of wear over time. This can also be caused by water resting in your system for a long period of time. You may also notice that your paint is peeling or bubbling along these areas, meaning the rust and cracks are below the paint itself.

#2 Gutters Are Separating From Themselves Or Your Roof

Fasteners keep your gutters sealed together properly and keep them along with your roof. Sometimes, this system can pull away on its own over time. However, if you find that you constantly need to tack the system back along your roof or that it is continuously separating, you may have damage in your gutter system.

#3 You Are Constantly Repairing Your Landscape

The purpose of your gutter system is to protect your roof and home by taking that water safely away. Naturally, this may cause some erosion occasionally. However, if your system is causing frequent erosion and damage to your landscape, it could be in need of repair.
