1. Why are my gutters sagging?
When there is a drop in your gutters, water is collected there, preventing proper drainage into the ground. This causes stress on that section of gutter so that it may not be able to do its proper job, leading to further sagging or, at worst, a total collapse of that section. As water begins to seep from this low point, it can cause rotting and eventual erosion of wherever the water is directed, on the siding, or even the foundation below.
Solution: Call Anderson Remodeling to install hidden hangers every 3 feet with 2″ woodgrip screws to support your gutters.
2. Why are my gutters leaking?
If overlooked, a leaky gutter can slowly erode the siding or wood and foundation below the leaking area. The best time to check for damage is just after a rainstorm to check your gutter drainage performance. Also, are your gutters a good size for your home? Builders install 5″ gutters. Anderson Remodeling installs 6″ gutters. Size does matter.
Solution: Call Anderson Remodeling to clean out your gutters and check for proper gutter size and the overall downspout design. Do you need screens installed to divert pine needles, fallen leaves and other debris? Even small animals such as birds and squirrels can make nests and leave droppings that can clog up your gutters.
Anderson Remodeling gutter technicians are experienced to make sure during the cleaning process that your gutters are sealed properly, making sure hidden hangers are not coming loose and make additional recommendations for repair or replacement. They know how water flows and will check that you have sufficient downspout placement to displace the water into the correct place and away from your home and landscaping. Anderson Remodeling can make recommendations for your downspout water runoff.
