Rain gutters are an important player in keeping water and other run-off from damaging the exterior and interior of your home. Take some time to properly inspect them this spring and if you find any of the following signs of damage, call Hynes Roofing & Siding for a professional contractor’s help in repairing or replacing your gutters.
1. Gutters Appear Uneven
It may seem like a problem for later but uneven gutters would mean water collecting in the center instead of draining out the corner spout. This will ultimately lead to more sagging and the gutters will pull away from the house. Timely repair will help you avoid a complete gutter replacement and Hynes Roofing & Siding can put you in touch with the expert help you need.
2. Rusting On Your Gutters
Rust is a good tell-tale sign that your gutters need repair and maintenance, maybe even replacement. It is good to call a professional local gutter repair company to help you determine if patching can do the trick or if you need to replace the damaged part.
3. Gutter’s Paint-Job Is Chipping
A chipping paint-job means there’s a leak in your gutter. A good thing to do in such a situation is to bring in outside help. An expert gutter repair specialist or local gutter repair and replacement company can help you take care of the leak and prevent any further damage.
4. Gutter Hardware Is Hanging Off
Another sign that your gutter needs maintenance this spring, and probably the most obvious one is hardware hanging off your gutters or fallen gutter hardware on the ground. This means your gutters aren’t securely fastened and will not stand strong winds or heavy rain. Call Hynes Roofing & Siding and we can help you set your water-drainage system right by fastening your gutters and checking them for any repairs or maintenance they might need.
5. Mildew and Staining In The Attic
Don’t just look at your gutters but take a look inside your home to determine if your gutters need repair. Any signs of mildew or water staining in your attic could be a sign of a leak in your gutters or damage that is leading to water not draining adequately and seeping into your attic.
6. Water-pooling In The Basement
Another place to look inside your home is in the basement. If there is water pooling in your basement, it means the gutters are not draining water away from your home. This can lead to damage, mold and cracks in the foundation. A professional repair team will help you assess if the downspouts are positioned correctly and carry out any repairs necessary.
