Your gutters provide your home with protection from water damage. Gutter systems carry rainwater away from home exteriors, which prevents it from seeping through and potentially causing extensive damage. If you have gutters that are sagging, this affects their ability to keep your home safe from this kind of damage. Find out why your gutters might be sagging and what you can do about it.
Gutter systems need to be installed correctly in order to prevent sagging from occurring. When gutters are improperly installed and not firmly secured to your home, they can end up dropping, which stops them from directing water away from your home. When you have sagging gutters caused by faulty installation, you’ll need to either spend money to have them re-installed the right way or invest in a brand new gutter system.
Heavy Water Loads
Heavy downpours or frequent rain can force your gutters to handle heavy water loads. If you have a gutter system that isn’t strong enough to do so, your gutters can end up sagging from this added weight. When this happens, your best option is to select a gutter system that is designed to support these heavier loads.
Old Gutter Systems
Traditional gutter systems are made up of multiple gutter segments that have to be connected to each other and attached to your home. The installation process for these systems involves drilling nail holes into each segment. Over time, these nails can become loose, prying your gutters away from your home to sag or droop.
