You may not realize it, but your gutter system is a vital part of protecting your home. Its job is to move rain and snowmelt away from the foundation of the house, and, when working properly, it needs very little attention.
But when your gutters are not working properly, you could be at risk of costly damage. Leaking gutters can cause water to pool up around the foundation of your home, potentially leaking into your basement. Worse yet, the warm, damp conditions create the perfect environment for mold, rats, and other pests to invade.
Some gutters just need a quick cleaning out to regain function. Others can be seriously damaged or installed incorrectly, and you will need the help of a professional.
Why Are My Gutters Leaking?
Leaky gutters can be caused by a number of things, including:
- Aging or corroded gutters
- Loose or poorly installed gutters
- Loose hangers
- Buildup of leaves, twigs, etc.
- Clogged downspout
- Gaps between gutter sections
- Incorrect gutter slope
Getting a closer look (when it’s not raining, of course!) is the best way to determine the cause of the leaks.
