Are Your Gutters Leaking? Find Out Why

Are Your Gutters Leaking? Find Out Why

Oct 29, 2021

A leaking gutter may not sound like a big deal, but it can cause a lot of damage to both the interior and exterior of your home.

For example, leaking gutters can result in water sneaking behind your home’s siding, which can cause both interior and exterior damage. On top of this, as water gathers around your home, you may soon find that your basement is leaking.

Here are some of the most common reasons for leaking gutters:

•    Clogs: If water is unable to smoothly flow through your gutters, it’ll eventually come over the side. Fortunately, removing the clog may be all you need to solve your issue.

•    Holes and cracks: Over time, gutters can develop holes and/or cracks. Even a small hole or crack can leak.

•    Improper slope: You may not realize with the naked eye, but your gutters slope to ensure that they efficiently move water to your downspouts. Improper sloping can cause leaks.

These are just a handful of the most common reasons for a leaking gutter. If you’re dealing with this problem, there’s a good chance it can be attributed to one of the above.
