The purpose of gutters is to protect your home from the elements, namely rain and other water sources. Run-offs from your roof can cause a wide array of problems. Even when you have gutters, they may fail to work due to a number of issues like:

  • Clogs from dirt, debris and leaves.
  • Ice blocks that stop them from draining properly.
  • Severe weather damage
  • Hail¬† damage
  • Heavy winds that often blow twigs, limbs and other objects into them.
  • Normal wear and tear and aging that causes them to fail or need replacement.
  • Improper installation, causing them to fail or function improperly.
  • Low quality workmanship or faulty materials
  • Ladders and other things placed against them, causing stress issues.Gutters that are in need of repair or replacement can cause a world of problems. When water cannot be channeled from your roof properly, your roof can actually cave in from the pressure. In addition, you may experience:
  • Leaking
  • Electrical damage due to wet wires and outlets
  • Bowing of your roof
  • Curling or cracked shingles
  • Foundation issues
  • Lawn and garden problems
  • Mold and mildew
