Seamless Gutters Repairs and Maintenance
Sometimes existing gutter systems that are not performing correctly can be repaired without replacing the entire system. Generally, the rule-of-thumb is, if the gutter or downspout is rusted through, it should be replaced. Once the rust process starts, it cannot be reversed, thus patching is only a temporary fix. Depending on the existing gutter size and profile, it is sometimes possible to replace single sections of rusted through gutters, even when they tie into adjacent gutter sections.
Also, existing downspouts are often reusable even when the gutters are rusted through, as water is less likely to stay pooled in vertical downspouts. Expansion and contraction, wind, and falling limbs are a few of the culprits that can overtime lead to a system not functioning correctly.
Some other common repairs include:
– Resealing seams and corners.
– Re-securing the gutters by adding additional hangers.
– Re-attaching downspouts.
– Re-pitching gutters that aren’t flowing correctly.
– Adding downspouts to redistribute water and increase capacity.
– Overall “tightening up” of the system.
Maintaining positive drainage away from the homes’ foundation is also another necessity. Water that continues to pool next to the foundation can leak into the basement or cause structural concerns.
Cory’s Gutter can diagnose and offer solutions to most negative drainage issues as well as offering free advice on what you can do to help your gutter system work efficiently.
Homeowners may discover that many of their gutter problems could be because of a poorly functioning gutter. These problems include erosion around the foundation, damage fascia boards, and flooded basements. The spring time is the best time to check for damage due to a poorly performing gutter.
