If you recently purchased or built your home, you certainly performed a thorough inspection on each aspect of the interior and exterior. If you thought everything was okay, now we suggest you to check on minor details once again.
Certain problems don’t come up before time though they existed since the very beginning. Let’s talk about your roof gutter here. Before the rain or snow, you can just guess that they are working fine. If you see the flaws that we put our eyes on, you can know if it’s already time to replace your gutter.
Peeling paints on your walls
If paints on your walls closer to the gutter line have started developing blisters like teenagers’ pimples, it is time that you check for cracks and such on you gutter. Water leaking from the gutter may cause you to keep on repainting your walls or even cause to decay the sidings.
Increased distance of rain gutter and roof
If your gutter and roof have started coming apart, probably the hooks or nails are now loose. One certain thing about this problem is that the water flowing from your shingles will not follow the gutter path to the downspout. You certainly don’t want water to fall directly from the roof to your decks and front yard. Check this once again and replace if needed.
Wet or flooding basements
If your home has wet basements, probably it is the fault of your rain gutter lines. If your downspout is not connected to the ground water drainage system properly you may suffer these basement floods. Furthermore, if these gutters don’t perform to drain the rainwater away from you walls, seeping of water into will also cause to flood your basement.
