Why Are My Gutters Sagging?

Contents

Maintaining your gutters helps prevent moisture problems and ensures rainwater is properly directed away from your house. If your gutters are loose, be sure to fix them as soon as possible to avoid costly repairs in the future.

Gutters Sagging

Read on to find out why gutters come loose and what signs you should be watching out for.

Why Do Gutters Sag?

Gutters frequently come loose because their structure has deteriorated over time or because they’re carrying too much weight. Both of these circumstances can occur simultaneously, causing the gutters to sag and detach.

Remember that too much dirt, water or ice in your gutters will contribute to sagging. The problem may start as a drainage issue due to the accumulation of debris, which prevents water from flowing out of your gutters and into the downspouts. If your gutters and downspouts are blocked for a long time, the extra weight of debris and water will cause the gutter system to collapse. The gutter hangers or spikes will likely become loose and pull away from the gutters.

Your gutters may also sag as a result of neglect or structural problems with the surfaces to which they’re attached. During routine maintenance, make sure to check these areas carefully.

How to Tell if Your Gutters Are Sagging

Knowing how to recognize gutter problems can help you avoid more severe issues like roof leaks, wood rot and damage to your home’s foundation.

Constantly checking for these indicators of gutter sagging, especially during the rainy season, can help you identify and address the issue before it’s too late.

  • Dripping water from the gutters

  • Visible sagging

  • Broken or missing gutter screws

  • Holes behind the gutters

  • Lips or spouts that are noticeable on the gutter’s side

  • Crumbling fascia

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!

Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
