Are Your Gutters Pitched Properly?

Are Your Gutters Pitched Properly?

One of the most critical portions of your home’s defense system against the seasonal changes are the rain gutters. The entire gutter system serves as a conduit for directing the flow of rainwater away from the base of your home. With this process, the foundation of your home, sides, soffit, walls and fascia remain safe from any water damage. This even helps to avoid the soil erosion in the areas around your property and protects the landscape.

In order to ensure your home is efficiently protected, this rain gutter system must be installed in a proper way. Having your gutters pitched properly is essential. The following are the few common problems linked with an improper gutter installation.

Faulty Pitch

The gutter system is usually installed at a slight angle or in such a way that the water pitch must be able to flow through the drains and downspouts smoothly. The pitch should be designed in such a way that it must be a bit sloping. If it is kept too sloppy, then it can cause the spilling or pooling of water instead of getting the flow to the downspouts.

Downspout Placement

Water can start to pool in the middle of the gutter if the downspouts are not installed properly. This results in the rusting, rook damages, accumulation of mosquitoes, side damage, foundation damage, and overall damage to the gutter system or roof because of the access to the mass of accumulated water.

Defective Hangers

Hangers serve as the brackets which are used for attaching the whole gutter system with your home. They hold the whole mass of the system. If they are defective, then the gutters may fall off, especially in a heavy rainy season. If they are positioned too far apart, then the gutters may become sagged.
