The gutters on your home are there to help remove rainfall from your roof and carry it safely away from your property. They make sure water isn’t simply left to stream down the siding, or pool at the base of your home. In short, your gutters are important structural elements of the home, no matter how simple they look. If you spot damage, or can see your gutters are leaking or overflowing, you need to take immediate action to have them checked and repaired if necessary. Let our professional team help you - give us a call today.
Why Bother Repairing My Gutter?
Our long serving contractors over at BM Roofing Services have seen pretty much every type of gutter damage or issue you could imagine. Most problems, if caught quickly, can be repaired easily and for a minimal cost. However, leave them longer and you’ll have a bigger headache down the line. Repairing a gutter is often a quick job, requiring few materials - and therefore a low cost fix. If a gutter is left without repair and fails or overflows, you may need an entire replacement which is much more costly. Leaking gutters can also cause foundation damage and rot, or drip water on the siding of your home which looks ugly and can ultimately cause long lasting problems.
Common Gutter Repairs
Common issues include sagging and leaking gutters, which may be caused by cracks, holes or loose fasteners. You might also notice water dripping from the gutter onto the siding, which may be a sign that an element of the gutter is not properly installed or has become damaged. This is worth checking out to avoid longer term problems. Proper maintenance and cleaning can make it easier to see issues before they become serious - so keep on top of that cleaning regime to make life easier in the end.
Can I Fix My Own Gutters?
There’s not a straight answer to this one - but we would ask you to consider a few things. Do you have the equipment needed to access your gutters safely? Are you confident working at height with tools and materials which may be awkward to carry and use? Do you know exactly what the issue is and how best to repair it? Few homeowners can honestly answer yes to all of these questions, making it often futile, and even dangerous to try fixing your gutters alone. Investing in a professional to carry out your essential repairs could be the smartest decision you make today.
