How To Check For Gutter Damage After A Storm

How To Check For Gutter Damage After A Storm

Did you just have a huge hail storm blow through your town? What about a wind storm that had gusts so strong trees were knocked down? These storms could mean big problems for your gutters. Hail and wind can loosen and/or bend gutters and downspouts. They can also fill your gutters with debris. So how do you check for damage? We have compiled a checklist for you:

  • Ensure your gutter is free of debris.
  • Check to make sure there is no standing water in any section of your gutter.
    • If there is standing water, you may have an issue with the gutter’s angle that may have been pushed off balance by the storm.
  • Inspect that the gutters do not have any holes, cracks, or leaks. You can do this by running water from a hose into the gutter and making sure there is no access or dripping water. This is especially important in the caulking of your gutter seams.
  • Make sure that downspouts are not clogged.
  • Gently wiggle all sections of the gutters to ensure they are secured properly. This will ensure that all connections are in place.
  • Ensure that the downspouts are also secure.
  • Visually ensure that no gutters are sagging.
  • Check for pooling water around your home’s foundation.
  • Check to ensure there is no damage to the exterior walls, paint, and/or siding.
  • Check to make sure that there are no water stains on your walls or ceilings inside your home.

Checking for gutter damage after a storm is very important, this way you can avoid any possible leaks! Contact the experts today from Gutter Professionals, Inc. for more information about gutter installation on your home.
