Old dented gutters and downspouts not only cause functional issues but also lower the aesthetic appeal of your home or business. And since older gutters and downspouts can be difficult to repair in patches, it’s often the best choice to replace old gutters with new ones.

The Problem With Damaged Gutters
Did you know that one inch of rain on a 12,000-square-foot roof represents about 12,500 gallons of water? If you neglect gutters and downspouts, that 12,500 gallons of water could end up doing some serious damage to your structure.
Aside from clogged gutters, here are some common signs your gutters are leaking and are in need of repair.
Over time, yearly temperature changes and water and debris weight can cause your gutters to sag in certain areas. Sagging can cause the natural slope of your gutters to disappear, making the water overflow over the sides of the guttering.
How we can help: This issue typically requires the simple rehanging of specific gutter sections to achieve the proper slope.
Unwanted cracking can occur at places in the gutters where fasteners pass through the metal or where gutter sections join together. These areas are especially vulnerable to debris accumulation, causing them to separate from each other completely.
How we can help: Small cracks can easily be repaired with special sealant or caulk. However, larger separations may require more work. Seam cracks may require refastening to prevent future separations.
The joints are the weakest points of a gutter system because water must bend around a corner before continuing toward a nearby downspout. When joints constantly bear the weight of water and other debris, they can sometimes become separated from the unit.
How we can help: Joint separations can sometimes be easy fixes, where we will simply replace the problematic joint. Depending on the type of leak, a special sealant may be enough for repair.
