What is that annoying sound?! Right out your bedroom window you keep hearing this dripping sound and can not figure out where it's coming from. It's not raining and unless crickets have changed their dialect, its definitely not them. So where is this sound coming from?
Well, look no further than your gutter system! Overtime your gutter system can begin to leak and need repairs. If you have a seamless gutter system, and I hope that you do, the odds of this happening dramatically decreases.
Most of the time a leaky gutter can be fixed by simply adding more caulk to the troubled area.
But...... it's worth mentioning the other possible reasons your gutter system may be leaking.
1. You have a sectional gutters installed on your home (opposed to seamless gutters). Sectional gutters are completely unnecessary with the advancement of gutter technology. Seamless gutters are ran off a machine to the exact specs needed without the need to piece gutters together. Avoid sectional gutters at all cost!
2. Your gutters are clogged and holding water. This water will slowly corrode the inside of your gutter and cause leaks at the miters (corners) and end caps. Clean your gutters, at least, once a year or install a good gutter guard to keep your gutter system clear of leaves and debris.
3. Your gutters need to be updated. They are simply old and falling apart. (Signs include: rust, holes and cracks, sagging and detaching from fascia board).
Lastly, make sure you hire a trustworthy company who will give you an honest evaluation of your home gutter system.
