Repair or Replacement Gutters?
We’ll inspect your gutters, and if they can be safely and economically repaired, we’ll recommend that option. If not, we’ll suggest replacing your gutters before your home suffers expensive damage. You can choose from materials including aluminum, copper, or steel, in a variety of colors.
We’ll consider the following before making a recommendation:
- The age of your gutters
- The extent of the damage
- If this area has been repaired before, but still has problems
Common Problem Areas
The following problems are some common issues that make a repair or replacement necessary:
A leaky spot can sometimes be resealed, but over time, it will likely continue to be an issue. This can eventually cause mold to grow in your basement.
If your gutters are sagging or pulling away from your home, they may have broken hardware that needs replacing. It’s important to have this issue taken care of before the entire gutter collapses. Ice expansion or debris can also cause sagging, but if your gutter has become permanently warped, it may need replacing.
The main part of your gutter or your downspout may have become clogged somewhere along the way. In this case, the material causing the clog simply needs to be removed. If it’s allowed to continue for too long, it could cause cracks to develop in your foundation.
- Incorrect Slope
Gutters need to have a very slight slope in order to ensure that water flows easily through them. If the slope isn’t at the right angle, you can have water pooling. In this case, your gutter should be re-pitched to the proper slope.
- Signs of Physical Damage
Gutters can be bent, dented, rusted, or have holes or cracks. If you have gutters that have seams, they can start to pull apart at this area.
Ultimately, gutters can last for decades if they’re properly installed and maintained. If they have installation or maintenance issues, however, they can develop problems that spread far beyond your gutters. Contact Motor City Home Improvement to ensure that your gutters stay in good repair and protect your home from water damage.
