How to Find & Fix Gutter Damage

Most homeowners don't think much about their gutters until there is a problem or until it's time to haul out the ladder to clean them, but even what seems like insignificant gutter damage can lead the need for a roof repair, mold, and other issues.

You may spot gutter damage during routine cleaning or by watching for signs such as water pooling around the foundation. A better way, however, is to have an annual inspection performed by a qualified roofing contractor.

Since 1999, NMC Exteriors, a Minneapolis roofing company, has been a trusted choice for roofing inspections, repairs, and replacements and our highly skilled team can identify gutter damage and repair it before further issues occur.

Signs of Gutter Damage

Since most homeowners only clean their gutters every few months at the most, it's easy to understand how damage can go unnoticed. Signs to look for include:

  • Clogged Gutters
  • Water in the Basement
  • Sagging or Collapsing Gutters
  • Water Damage
  • Landscape Damage

What to Do Next?

A common mistake some homeowners make when they see such damage is to fix the damage but not the cause. For example, they will repair the water damage, but not address the issue with the gutters.

Even if you have the gutter repaired, it's important to have your roof checked. Gutter damage to your roof isn't always easily visible from the ground, so having a professional take a look is a good idea.
