Typically caused by improperly anchored screws and brackets, loose downspouts can interfere with rain water being properly directed away from your home. Even if the rest of your gutter system is in perfect condition and properly diverting water away from your room, a loose or damaged downspout can still lead to major water damage to your home's interior and/or foundation.
Often caused by debris build-up in the bends (or corners) of your gutter system, making it difficult for water to flow around those corners and properly to your downspouts. These leaks can cause a ripple effect, resulting in additional leaks and (potentially major) damage to your gutters if left unfixed. Pooling water and debris adds weight, which can lead to our most commonly requested repairs: loose gutters.
Loose or improperly-pitched gutters will disrupt your gutter systems' only job: draining rain water away from your home. When gutters are loose, or their slope is off even the slightest bit, water and debris can pool in your gutters, causing leaks... or even adding so much weight that your gutters pull away from your home completely. This is a major issue that should be fixed immediately.
