Although gutters may seem like a simple attachment to install on a home, the truth is that there are many ways that a gutter installation can go wrong.
Whether you tried to install your gutters on your own or hired a fly-by-night professional at an unbelievably low rate, the chances are that even a small mistake can lead to expensive damages to your property.
Don’t let poor gutter installation lead to roof and foundation damage. Look for the red flags of improper installation and make immediate moves to get the job done right.
Your Gutters Are Pooling and Overflowing
If your gutters were installed at an improper pitch, then they aren’t going to be properly angled to let water flow through the system.
If you notice that your gutters consistently pool or overflow and the cause isn’t leaf and debris clogs, this is a sure sign that whoever installed your system, didn’t follow correct installation procedures.
Water is Pooling Near Your Downspouts
Your gutter system’s downspouts should be positioned to properly lead water away from the exterior of your home. So, pooling water near the downspouts of your gutters is never a good sign.
Not only does this mean that your gutters weren’t properly installed, but it also means that your foundation could be subject to irreversible damage if your gutter system isn’t immediately fixed.
Constant System Clogs
Any gutter installation company that is worth paying for will guarantee that your gutters remain as clog-free as possible. At Talbert Gutters, we always inform our clients of their option to install high-quality leaf guards that will keep their gutters clear from leaves, dirt, and other clogging debris.
If your gutter team didn’t grant you the opportunity of extra protection, your gutters may be installed correctly, but they are definitely getting clogged up.
Let a gutter expert like Talbert Gutters come out to your home, inspect your system and apply leaf guard protection where necessary.
Your Gutters Are Detached
Your gutters should always be attached to your home and never be free to hang away from your roofline.
Not only do detached gutters point to the possibility that your system isn’t draining properly, but they also pose a massive liability hazard on your property.
Gutters are made to last, and aluminum, vinyl, and zinc aren’t materials that you or a guest want falling off the house by surprise.
All it takes is a strong wind to have a damaging impact on detached gutters throughout your property. Prevent total detachment and injuries. Ensure that a trusted professional properly installs your gutters the first time around.
