Residents of the Palm Beaches know all about Florida’s storms and its rains. Rain is going to affect your home. A properly installed and well-maintained roofing gutter system is the best way to manage the impact of Florida’s heavy rain. JJ Quality Builders of The Palm Beaches reminds homeowners that an improperly installed, poorly maintained or damaged roofing gutter system can cause expensive damage to our home.
Roofing gutters should slope very slightly to the drainpipes, typically an eighth to a sixteenth of an inch per foot. If this is not properly done, water may collect in the gutters, which can lead to gutter sag and water seepage. The point where two sections of gutter meet must be joined correctly, or leaks can result. Roofing gutters must also be correctly fastened to the structure, because they are exposed to heavy rain and strong wind. A broken fastener can lead to leaks.
Maintenance of your roofing gutters is very important. Gutters should be monitored for blockage, easily caused by an accumulation of debris such as leaves and twigs. Blockage can result in water spills and seepage. Blocked drainpipes may cause overflow onto the roof or lead to standing water at a structural foundation.
Roofing gutter systems are easy to overlook, but good maintenance requires they be inspected and cleaned regularly. If you see gutter sag or see water overflowing from the gutter, you need to give it immediate attention. Water seeping into a structure may lead to problems with mold. Water dribbling onto windowsills and other housing elements may also cause problems with everything from siding to plantings.
A well installed and maintained roofing gutter system should last more than twenty years.
