The Importance of Gutter Repair

Posted April 18th, 2016 in Roof Maintenance

A common concern among homeowners is what to do when your roof gutters begin to leak. Whether your home is made with built-in gutters or if you choose to have your own gutters installed, it’s important to inspect your gutters frequently and get them repaired at the first sign of anything that may be amiss.

Not sure if your gutters need to be repaired? Common signs of gutter damage and leaks include:

  • Water dripping through soffit venting or fascias
  • Water stains
  • Rotten fascias
  • Overflowing water

Fortunately, gutter repair does not have to be a budget-busting endeavor. Our team at Canuck Roofing specializes in gutter maintenance and repair, and provides a cost-effective solution to repairing gutters by replacing the EPDM rubber lining on the gutter as you can see in the before and after image below.

By applying this rubber on a worn or leaky gutter, you are creating a tight seal that will prevent any water from seeping in and ultimately causing rot. This also helps to extend the life of your gutters and provides an aesthetically pleasing look.

In addition to repairing your gutters, it’s also important to keep them clean and clear of debris, which is why Canuck Roofing offers gutter cleaning as well. A clean gutter reduces the chance of overflow that can lead to excess water around your foundation.

Be sure to check your gutters frequently and make sure to install repairs at the first sign of any leak. Early prevention will save you from more costly repairs in the long run. Contact Canuck Roofing today to learn more how we can help keep your gutters (and roof) in optimal shape.
