While things like damaged siding and missing roof shingles can plummet your home’s curb appeal, a sagging gutter system can do the same. If you’ve ever seen sagging gutters on a home, you know how sloppy and unappealing they can be, which is why our gutter experts recommend replacing or repairing them when they get to that point.
Sagging Is Inevitable
No matter how great your gutter system is, the truth is it will begin to sag. Eventually, gravity will take hold of the mounts that are installed on your home to keep your gutters in place and it will pull on them a little every day. Over time, they’ll begin to shift and if you have leaves and other debris built up in them, they’ll shift even more once water starts to collect.
Sagging gutters are not only unappealing, but they’re also not as effective as they should be. Every home needs a working gutter system to transport water away from the structure. If your gutters aren’t doing their job, you risk dealing with leaks, clogs, and even water damage to your home.
What to Do
While it’s entirely possible to correct your gutter system yourself, it can be dangerous. You’ll not only need new mounting brackets (and possibly new gutters if yours are in bad shape), but you’ll also need a ladder, balance, and careful hands. If all of that doesn’t sound like something you want to try to tackle, you could always call the gutter experts at P.J. Fitzpatrick.
