Common problems of gutter
Gutters are simple in design and there are just some of the ways that may fail. These are some of the causes of gutter damage.
Blockage: The gutters can get clogged with debris like building up from the natural materials like leaves or the unnatural ones like tennis balls. If you ever notice marks of water under the pool of water or gutters near the foundation, then your gutters are overflowing and it needs to be cleaned thoroughly. Your downspout might also be blocked.
Leaks: If the gutter is not blocked and the water is still escaped then you certainly have a leak. These leaks sometimes open at the joints between the gutter sections which can also be resealed. Other ways from which leak might appear are because maybe leak develops a crack in the gutters from other damage or corrosion. You can also patch the leaks, but once the weak spot gets established, it will be the problem.
Sag: If you ever notice that the gutter is leaning down or pulling from the house, you need to act quickly to avoid collapsing of the gutter. The reason for sag is because of the result of a broken spike or hanger. Take a look at the area of the problem and also replace the broken hardware if it is necessary. You can buy screw spikes instead of the hammer with spike holes that might have become loose and worn.
The gutter might need sagging because of weight from debris that needs to be cleaned. If the warping is permanent, you might need to replace the section of that gutter, if not the whole system depending on the extent of the damage.
