How to Avoid Costly Home Repairs and Replacements  

Signs That Tell You It’s Time for a Gutter Repair

As homeowners, we often face a difficult decision whether or not we should hire a repair service or proceed with an entire replacement of things we purchased. Are you the one who hires a handyman to fix your air conditioner or the one that throws it away and buy a new unit instead? We often think repairs could just cost us the same as buying a new one but we could at least give our things a chance to serve us longer by early identifying the signs of future potential problems. In the case of a gutter replacement or a gutter repair, the latter could be your choice once you identified these signs earlier.


Holes in the gutter are often caused by sharp branches or rust that eats away at certain areas and result in leaks. You have to remember that elbow joints or two guttering sections must be securely fastened.

Holes and cracks

Small openings can be covered over with a quality and strong sealant. Larger ones may need a small piece of metal flashing that can be riveted on before sealing it. A temporary fix may work but it’s best to call a professional before holes and cracks get worse.

Gutters are pulling away from the house.

This problem may be the cause of loose gutter hangers. If they are positioned correctly, water flows down the side of the building instead draining to the gutter system. Screwing in the hangers can be an easy task if you have a drill to use. The hangers which are already bent can be replaced.
