What Causes Gutters to Sag

One of the primary reasons your gutters pull away from the roof is warping. Aluminum, vinyl and steel gutters expand and contract over time due to temperature changes, which leads to warping. Apart from warping, poor installation may also be to blame when your gutters sag. Amateur installers may place the gutter hangers too far apart, which results in uneven weight distribution. Lastly, debris buildup can also weigh down your gutter system. Remember that your gutters are only supposed to hold rainwater–not twigs, leaves and other debris.

Reattaching Loose Gutters

Sagging gutters don’t always require replacement; in some cases a reliable contractor can repair them. Remember that repairing your gutters is a risky task, especially without the right tools, so it’s best to leave the job to the pros.

How Gutter Guards Can Prevent Gutter Sagging

Clogging is one of the primary reasons your gutters sag. To prevent this issue, consider installing Gutter Helmet systems to your home. This surface tension gutter cover doesn’t just stop debris from clogging your gutter; it also gives your gutters an extra layer of weather protection.
