Importance of Gutter Maintenance on Your Home

Maintaining Gutters Indianapolis

Gutters on your home serve an important function by diverting rainwater from your roof away from the foundation of your house. Leaky or clogged gutters and downspouts can cause rainwater to run into eaves, resulting in rotten fascia or soffit boards. Gutters and downspouts need regular maintenance. Cleaning gutters involves removing the leaves and other debris. After cleaning, check gutters for leaks with a garden hose.

Look for leaks around end caps, joints, and downspout connections. Allow the gutters to dry, then repair any leaks you found with gutter seal caulk.

Further Information

Danny Lipford: Marty asks, “Is it really that big of a problem that my gutters leak here and there?”

No, a few leaks here and there wouldn’t be a problem if all of those drips went straight down out of the gutters. But they don’t, especially when it’s full of debris like this gutter.

What happens is it dams up, and then it will find its way into your soffit and fascia area in the overhang of your home and cause tremendous amount of damage before you even know it. It also will attract a lot of bugs that love that moisture.

So, what you need to do—keep them clean, and then look for any little crack that could possibly be leaking. You’ll find those around end caps, around where your downspouts go down through it. And any other little area that you can find that you can apply some gutter repair caulk, and you can avoid a lot of the damage that will happen to your overhangs.
