The Importance of Repairing Gutters
Eavestrough repair is incredibly important to the functionality of the roof and to protect the property. The primary job of gutters is to safely route water away from the house. When gutters are damaged, water flow is changed or totally impeded, which can mean water drips down across the soffit and in places it shouldn’t be. Damaged gutters can lead to:
- Damages to the soffit that require soffit repair or replacement
- Water damage to the walls of the home
- Water streaming into the basement or around the home’s foundation
- Problems with mould and mildew that pose a health risk
- Issues with water runoff causing ground erosion around the home’s foundation
Solutions to Common Gutter Problems
Leaking Gutter Corners
The seals at the corner of an eavestrough can break down with time. If the gutter corners are leaking, we remove the old seal completely and then add a new seal over the corner to ensure water cannot slip through.
Water Leaks Between Roof Edge and Gutter
If you see water spilling between the roof edge and the gutter, this can be a sign that the gutters are sagging, or the house has settled, and it has changed how the gutters connect. In most cases, re-securing and adjusting the gutters so they sit flush with the roof will mend the problem. However, we can also install a drip edge using flashing to keep water away from the fascia and flowing directly into the eavestrough.
Leaks Around Gutter Downspouts
Downspouts should be riveted to the bottom of the gutter and then sealed to prevent leaks. If you see water dripping around the downspout instead of through it, this usually means either a rivet is missing, or the seal is damaged. We secure the gutter’s downspout back in place properly and then add a new caulking seal to effectively keep water from leaking.
