With the rainy season just around the corner many gutters on homes in the Nebraska area have design flaws or problems due to aging that home owners must have fixed or risk very costly water damage. The seams in regular guttering with multiple pieces create stress points that have a much higher potential to leak and require regular inspection and maintenance to avoid problems.
Also the older style water spouts common in many Nebraska homes only handle around half the water that more modern styles can. The more modern style of water spouts were developed much larger because excess water flow off from older style water spouts can result in expensive foundation damage to a home.
Another potential area home owners should pay attention to before the rainy season starts is the quality of hangers and brackets holding the guttering and downpipes in place. If these aren’t secured properly or if they’re suffering from wear and age they can fail resulting in partial collapse of the guttering on the roof or a downpipe. That can lead to serious water damage to the house too.
Preparing before the rainy season starts by inspecting and fixing any potential problems with the guttering system on a home can save a home owner the costs due to damage and escalation of a minor guttering problem to a major guttering failure.
Home owners with older gutter systems with seams that are beginning to show separation and leaks should seriously consider upgrading to a newer seamless guttering system with the more modern water spouts to eliminate the chance their guttering system will fail in the middle of the rainy system.
