Is water pouring over the side of your gutter vs. going through the downspout (can be tested with a hose)? This could be a sign that your gutters and/or downspouts are clogged and need a good cleaning. Or, it could mean that a portion of your gutter is “sagging” which gets rid of any slope that allowed the water to get carried to the downspout.
The hangers, hardware that secures the gutters to your roof, may have deteriorated over time, may have been spaced too far apart to support the full weight of the gutters. Or the fasteners may have popped out of the wood.
Is water dripping from the corners of the gutters? Is water dripping from the bottom of the gutter? These may be signs that a hole has been punctured in the gutter material or that the seams on the corners aren’t sealed well enough.
When running a hose through your gutter system, does the water remain stagnant inside of your gutters? This could be a sure sign that your gutters are improperly pitched, there is no small slope to carry the water to the downspouts.
Do you have a short downspout that lets water out close to your home? Downspouts need to extend several feet away from the house to ensure water isn’t getting dumped into your basement. Gutter extensions could be your answer.
