Gutters are meant to prevent water from damaging your home’s exterior and foundation. However, these components can be a bother when they make noises when it rains. Noisy gutters and downspouts can be an indication that there’s something wrong with them.
Find out what causes this problem from a local gutter and roof replacement contractor.
As much as possible, there should be no obstructions in your gutters to proper water flow. When leaves, branches and other debris clog your gutters, water can back up to the roof and overflow to your exterior. When not addressed immediately, water may penetrate the eaves, causing roof damage.
Before the next storm hits, inspect your gutters for clogs. It would also be a good idea to trim any overhanging branches of trees surrounding your home. To prevent clogs and reduce the need for gutter cleaning, you can invest in gutter guards. Gutter protection systems stop debris from entering the gutters, avoiding clogs.
Keep your siding, roof and other parts of your home’s exterior by keeping your gutters in good shape. Gutters must be secured tightly into your home to prevent leaks. However, weather extremes can cause your gutters’ grip from the roof to loosen.
When water hits loose gutters, the force causes them to jiggle and make noises. Check your gutters for loose or hanging brackets if they are getting noisier. You should also inspect the fascia board for issues since it connects the gutters into your home. If you notice any problems with your gutter’s connections, get in touch with your contractor for repairs.
