You have probably noticed that the leaves have started to fall. That means your gutters are becoming blocked, reducing the effectiveness of drainage from the fall rain. It’s a yearly cycle, but it’s easy to forget when you have had a good summer.
Ensuring that your gutters continue to perform the function for which they are intended is essential. Poor drainage will not only damage your gutters, it can end up wreaking havoc on walls, roofs, ceilings, floors and foundations.
Check Your Gutters
First and foremost, you will need to check your gutters thoroughly for any damage. You may find that older guttering has suffered cracks and breaks due to debris that is forced down through the system. Age, in itself, results in wear and tear that will require the need for repair or replacement.
The problem with repair is that it’s often a temporary fix. The other issue you may face is finding matching parts for your current gutters. Regardless, it is essential that you keep your gutters clean and working as they were designed to avoid damage to your home.
If after inspecting your gutters you find irreparable damage or the system simply isn’t handling the onslaught of rain and leaves, it is time to consider replacing your guttering.
