What We Repair

Gutter Repair Huntsville AL

Gutter Mounting Boards

Mounting Boards

Fascia boards are the structural mounting boards for a gutter system which makes them a crucial part of  your gutter system maintenance and repair. When a damaged roof or a leaking gutter system is allowed to let water get to a home’s fascia board it will result in damage and in rot. Proper inspection and maintenance of these mounting boards is important for the longevity of your gutter system.

Gutter Screws

Mounting Screws

Gutter fasteners hold the gutters to the fascia board. Overtime these screws or nails can fail and may need to be replaced. There are many reasons for failure of these fasteners. It is good to be sure the correct fasteners have been used and have the correct fasteners inspected every two to three years. 

Gutter Brackets (2)

Mounting Brackets

Mounting brackets are critical for support of the system and for the water that the system will carry. Gutters should be mounted securely to the fascia with a minimum slope to each of the downspouts that are installed in the system. We make bracket repairs for from other contractors, severe weather, poor bracket spacing, and correction to bracket types when the wrong brackets have been used. 

Damaged Trough

Damaged Trough

Mounting brackets are critical for support of the system and for the water that the system will carry. Gutters should be mounted securely to the fascia with a minimum slope to each of the downspouts that are installed in the system. We make bracket repairs for from other contractors, severe weather, poor bracket spacing, and correction to bracket types when the wrong brackets have been used. 

Incorrect Gutter Pitch

Incorrect Pitch

Trough damage can stop water from flowing properly to the down spout exits. Checking the slope of gutters, repairing dents, repairing cuts, and repairing kinks makes for a good operating gutter system that can protect your home. 

Leaking Corners

Leaking Corners

Leaking corners is a very common fail point for a home’s gutter system. Annual inspection of the corners can keep the gutter system from causing massive damage to the overhangs. Important action needed when issues are found is to replace or reseal leaking miters to prevent more leaks and fascia damage. 

Downspout Mount

Downspout Mounts

Downspout mounting brackets can break or come loose and allow spouts to swing in the wind and may need to be replaced or re-attached to the wall. There are a large variety of downspout brackets that are used and some are more durable than others. Many times these mount will still be intact and have only come lose due to failed fasteners that were either to small or not intended for exterior use. 

Downspout Flow

Downspout Flow

Addressing downspout leaks and flow issues is a common repair that is needed as a gutter system ages. Water backing up or even excessive amounts of water can build up and become concentrated in areas that are too close to a foundation and could cause foundation settling and even cracking.

Assessment

Gutter Repair Huntsville AL

Total gutter system inspection is recommended every two years in order to maintain a well operating gutter system. Keep our gutter team on call for this bi-annual inspection.

We offer a repair vs replacement cost comparison in order for you to make an educated decision on the best option for your project.  

When planning too make a repair consider the longevity of the repair vs replacement with a new section or a even a whole new system as it may be more cost effective to consider a new gutter system option. 

We determined that the problem gutter is poorly draining because the house is settling and gutter pitch no longer adequate. We decided on adding an additional new downspout and he did a great job. It looks beautiful and solved the problem at a reasonable price.

Excellent crew. They cleaned my gutters and installed leaf filter on my existing gutters. The job was a little difficult because of the style of hangers on my gutter system, but the guys persisted and did a great job. I have already recommended Blue River to my next door neighbor.

Repair Concerns

What to Look For During a DIY inspection.

A dark discoloring on gutter corners or behind the gutters on the fascia boards. This indicates that the roofing is damaged, the gutter system is clogged, and or the miters may be leaking.

Water running over the front or back of gutter. This indicates that the system is either clogged or the gutter system capacity is not enough to meet the water flow demand of the roof area.

Water pouring or dripping from gutter or spouts. This indicates that the spouts have been installed incorrectly, have been damaged/become loose, or the spouts are clogged.

Holes or ruts in yard or lawn. This indicated that the gutter system is either clogged, needs extensions for the spouts or the  gutter system capacity is not enough to meet the water flow demand of the roof area.
