Common Gutter Problems and How We Fix Them
Gutters are a critical part of the roof that are responsible for keeping the roof, and the rest of the house, free from water damage. It's also one of the most problem-prone parts of the roof, which is why it's very important that you know how to spot its common ailments.
Read on as Colorado Roof Toppers, your local residential roofing contractor, shares the most common gutter problems and how we fix them.
The ubiquitous gutter problem is also the most damaging, and can affect more than just the roof. When your gutters are clogged and don't properly drain, they can end up staining your exterior walls and even damaging the house's foundation when water pools at the base.
Poor Gutter Installation
Improper gutter installation is the root of all gutter problems. From leaks to material weakness, the main cause of all of your gutter woes may be due to how it wasn't properly installed in the first place. What's tricky about addressing this is that the problem usually manifests very late in the life of the gutter - around five to ten years after installation. If you suspect that your roof wasn't properly installed, have an experienced gutter company like us do an inspection.
Improperly Pitched Gutters
The pitch is what allows the gutter to shed water naturally from the roof. If your gutters have an inadequate pitch, it will start to collect water instead of redirecting it. This is a common problem with sectional gutters as they aren't exactly custom-fit to your roof's measurements.
Our Solution: Seamless Gutters
We solve these three gutter problems and more using seamless gutters. Unlike sectional gutters, they are customized according to your roof's measurements. This not only makes installation easier, but it also ensures a perfect fit on your roof.
Seamless gutters, as their name suggests, also lack seams, since they don't come in sections. Our gutters won't form any gaps as they get older, which means they won't leak or collect debris. On top of that, they aren't as distracting when seen from the curb, as they are flush to the rest of your roof.
