Identifying Problems with Gutters in Omaha

Homes are not complete without gutter systems to help protect the roofing structure, by keeping the rain water away from the home. The maintenance of these gutters is going to be the most important thing that the homeowner can do to protect his or her home from the damage of rain. Gutters direct water away from the home, protecting the home from being structurally compromised. However, to ensure they are always able to perform this simple task, potential problems must be recognized. A contractor who repairs and replaces gutters in Omaha advises potential clients on avoiding some of these problems.

  • If the gutters are clogged with debris, such as leaves, twigs and other items, this will cause the system to fail and upset the integrity of the home. By cleaning and flushing the gutters at least once a year, this problem can be avoided. If the home has a lot of trees in the area, it may be necessary to clean the gutters more than once a year.

  • Sometimes gutters experience leaks and holes. If the homeowner inspects the gutters at regular intervals, this problem can be corrected with gutter sealant or some similar sealant.

  • Sometimes a gutter system can be improperly pitched. The gutters must be pitched in the angle towards the downspouts, in order to have proper water flow.

  • The downspouts can cause problems if they are not extended far enough away from the house. Ensuring that they extend several feet away from the house will keep the downspouts from causing problems with the basement.

  • Sometimes the gutters will sag or pull away from the house. This problem may be easily repaired by replacing the hangers, which are the hardware that holds the gutters to the fascia.
