As a homeowner, there’s a lot to pay attention to. Unfortunately, many people overlook the importance of their home’s gutter system. In addition to efficiently moving water away from your home, don’t forget that old gutters can drag down the curb appeal of your property.
If your gutters are aging, it’s important to pay close attention to their performance. Here are some of the most common early warning signs of gutter trouble:
· Fractures or cracks, such as those that are letting water escape
· Sagging gutters
· Gutters that are pulling away from the home
· Mold or mildew growth
· Trouble with your foundation, such as water entering your home
· Loose screws
If you recognize one or more of these warning signs, take the time to consult with an experienced professional. Turning a blind eye to this trouble could cost you additional time and money in the long run.
Also, take into consideration that a small gutter problem can lead to a bigger concern down the road. For example, a clogged gutter can cause damage to your home’s roof, siding, and foundation.
