There are some tell-tale signs that your gutters are damaged and need replacing or fixing. Here are some of the easiest ways to check whether you need a rain gutter repair or clean.
- Look for overflowing gutters
The next time it rains, check to see whether your gutters are overflowing at any section. Overflowing gutters usually mean clogged gutters, which probably just requires a clean and not a full rain gutter repair.
- Look for detached rain gutters
Walk around your house and check that all of your gutters are lined up and installed correctly. If the gutter installation wasn’t done correctly, you’ll be able to spot it. Also, gutters that are full of leaves and debris can sag, which means they need to be cleaned or repaired.
- Check for leaking rain gutters
If you spot drips or leaks from your gutters, it’s likely that there is a crack or hole in them that will need a repair.
