Repairing Gutters: How To Prevent Further Damage

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018 by Bill Heeter

If you gutters are exposed to significant debris, downpours, or snowfall, chances are they’ll need repairs in the future. Older gutters are the same way – almost all gutter systems will take on some form of damage that can affect their ability to properly divert water.

There are several ways to repair your damaged gutters, but chances are you will have to ultimately replace them if they’re left directly exposed to the elements. Patching holes with roofing cement and a metal repair patch is a relatively easy fix. Clearing debris and performing a complete gutter cleaning is required before repairs, however.

Leaky joints can cause dripping that may eventually lead to failure on the section of gutters and sagging gutters can come crashing down. Limiting the gutter’s exposure to branches, dirt, and leaves can reduce the impact on the gutter system, reduce the amount of cleaning you need to perform, and ultimately extend the life of your gutters.

The best solution to wear and tear on gutters is to install a GutterDome system on your existing gutters. They lay flush with the gutters and when properly installed can filter out leaves, pine needles, branches, tennis balls, and whirly birds. No more trips up the ladder!

With GutterDome, you can also reduce your twice a year cleaning chore to once every few years. Again, leave the ladder in the garage (until the Christmas lights need to go up, of course).

Do the best thing for your gutters. Remain securely on the ground and relax knowing your gutters are doing their job and the GutterDome is keeping all the junk out.
