Why do Gutters Leak?
Many things can cause a gutter to leak but one of the main causes is clogs. Gathered leaves and twigs and clog gutters and cause the water to leak over the sides. They can also block water flow and if the clog gets quite bad, it can cause a leak to form which will need attention right away. You can fix this problem by cleaning your gutters regularly to keep on top of the clogs.
Another major concern for leaking gutters is loosened fasteners. Once these become lose, it makes it easier for water to over-flow. Ensure that the fasteners that bond the gutter to the roof are all stable, double check the screws, nails and hangers to ensure they are properly secured to help prevent future leaks.
Cracks and holes can cause leaks to occur for obvious reasons. The most common place for cracks to develop is at the joints where the fasteners hold the gutter in place. Small cracks in the gutter can be fixed with a high-quality sealant. However, it’s important to choose one that can withstand wet conditions. A sealant that shrinks or cracks over time will cause even more problems to arise further down the line. If you would like to avoid re-visiting the same leak in a few weeks or months from now, then you must choose a sealant you can trust.
