If you’re like most people, when you start feeling the early symptoms of a cold, you start increasing your Vitamin C intake and start taking over-the-counter medicines to protect yourself from any worse illness.
Well, you should be taking the same precautions when its come to your home. If you notice any of these early signs of gutter damage, you should make repairs right away to avoid bigger problems.
If you step outside, do you see that your gutters are falling a bit due south of your fascia? Not good. Not only can that sagging tear your fascia the more it falls, but it will prevent your gutters from working properly and allow water to pool and flood certain areas of your home.
Rusting gutters are often a sign of sitting water. The only reason water would sit stagnant in your gutters is because clogged debris is preventing it from flowing out through your gutters normally. If you notice a lot of rust on your gutters, you should check for and clear out any debris that could be blocking water.
Your gutters and downspouts work to flow water away from your home, but if they’re clogged, rainwater will sit at the edge of your lawn and cause it to develop soggy patches. Especially if you notice the soggy grass runs parallel to your home, you likely have issues with your gutters.
When water constantly falls on your home due to faulty or damaged gutters, your home’s exterior can suffer from peeling paint and rotted wood framing. Not only does this damage your home, but the extra moisture could lead to mold growth. Gross!
