The most common gutter problem we hear about is clogged gutters. Clogged Gutters can cause a number of problems for homeowners. Your gutters can get so clogged that they will be rendered useless. The weight of the debris can actually cause your gutters to sag and pull away from your house. Debris in you gutters can also create a solid bridge causing water to cascade over the gutters ruining your foundation. We recommend you get your gutters cleaned at LEAST once a year to avoid such problems and if you have many trees around home we would suggest you get them cleaned twice a year. If you choose to do nothing it will likely result in some expensive repair costs. Another suggestion we often tell our customers is to install leaf protection. We offer 3 different types which can suit your needs.
Another very common problem we receive about gutters is leaking at the corners. This problem can easily be fixed by sealing the corners from the inside with gutter sealant. Small holes in the gutters can also be repaired with the gutter sealant. If you have a larger hole you will require a patch. Again, if leaks are not taken care of your foundation will start to erode away causing you some expensive repair bills.
We receive many calls for improperly pitched gutters. What this means is that the water is not draining properly into the downspouts and is collecting in the gutters themselves. If you notice that you are experiencing any of these problems call Alloy Gutter Company to take care of them. We will gladly come out and give you a free estimate.
