Many homeowners tend to take their gutter systems for granted and not spend much time thinking about maintenance, but neglecting clogged gutters can lead to expensive home repair work. According to Quicken Loans, failing to have damaged gutters replaced can result in home foundation repairs that could cost as much as $10,000. For over 14 years, Scott Brasfield has taken care of the gutter systems across the Middle Tennessee region as The Gutterman of Tennessee, and you can count on him to keep your foundation and other parts of your home safe from water damage. Knowing the signs of a damaged gutter system can be helpful in keeping your home protected from water drainage issues. We would like to share with you some of the most common signs that can alert you to contact The Gutterman for gutter replacement services.
If you notice that a section of your gutter system has started to sag and even pull away from your home, it is a clear sign that it is time to replace your gutters. Typically, gutters will only sag when they have become too heavy because they are overloaded from leaves, debris, and even standing water. When your gutters are sagging, it is impossible for them to function properly, and you should contact The Gutterman of Tennessee as soon as possible.
You may have noticed a small crack or split on your gutters, but since it did not seem very large, you figured that it was not that big of a deal. However, these small cracks and splits will get bigger over time, especially during the colder months of the year. Every time the temperature drops below freezing, water will turn into ice and expand inside those cracks and splits, and when the weather warms up, your gutters will become even more cracked and damaged. As soon as you spot even the tiniest crack in your gutters, we recommend contacting The Gutterman to stop even more extensive damage from occurring.
You should always keep an eye out for stains and discoloration developing on or around your gutter system. If you notice that orangish stains have started to appear, this is a sign of corrosion damage, and you will need to replace your gutters. If you spot any dark spots on your gutter system, these can be indications of mold or mildew growth, which should alert you to the fact that your gutters are not functioning as they should be. As soon as you notice any type of stains on your gutters, contact The Gutterman of Tennessee to keep your home safe from water damage.
