Gutter repair or gutter replacement is relatively cheap (in genera) and can save you thousands ( I do mean thousands) of dollars in collateral damage. Water leaking into walls, puddling and backing up on the roof or pouring down onto decks and stairways will cause dry rot which brings with it many issues that can affect the longevity of your home and health of your family.

Here are a few of the problems that can come from leaking gutters:
Water leaking into your walls can cause mold to grow between the drywall and the outside of your home. Mold has been found to cause health problems in many people and it’s a very hard problem to fix once it’s taken hold.
Dry rot is caused by fungi that grows when wood is exposed to excessive moisture through an issue like a leaking gutter. Once an area begins to rot, all of the surrounding wood must be replaced as well because most likely is also exposed to the dry rot fungus. Water pouring down onto your deck or porch today can mean a huge bill and having to replace these areas tomorrow.
Stains are another symptom of long-term leaking gutters. Dirt that collects within your gutters can now be running down the side of your house instead of through the downspout of your properly installed guttering system. So people act or produced by dust and decomposition of plant life now sticks to the site your house causing stains. If you have metal gutters, rust may also be an issue and cause ugly orange colored stains to your home. Over time you you will have to repaint paint your home costing thousands of dollars. It’s much cheaper to pay for gutter repair than to suffer the consequences of not doing anything at a later time.
