Gutters may come off the fascia. A downspout is a vertical pipe or conduit that carries rainwater from the scupper, guttering of a building to a lower roof level, drain, ground or storm water runoff system. These components may pull away from the house and there can be leaks due to the extreme weather conditions through the fall/winter months. Whether there are minor cracks requiring caulking or significant damage that calls for replacement, Your Exterior Pros will provide a free gutter inspection quote.
You may have too much debris in the gutters that would easily lead to water overflow splattering on your doors, windows and foundation. Squirrels, birds and other small critters may may clog gutters by building their nests – or attaching their homes onto yours. The solution is truly simple. Annual cleaning and maintenance of your gutters and downspouts is vital.
Most ordinary gutters last about 10 to 15 years. Dangerous water leaks and overflows can cause tremendous damage to a home before the homeowner is even aware. There are many types and styles of gutters on the market today, with the primary materials being aluminum, copper, steel, galvanized steel, zinc, and vinyl.
