Professional Gutter Repair Company
Compared to the bigger aspects of your exterior, like your roof or siding, your gutters might not seem all that important. However, the reality is that broken gutters put your home at risk of serious water damage. Before the inevitable happens, prioritize the gutter repairs you need so you can have peace of mind that your home is protected. If you wait until you need gutter replacement, your home could be vulnerable to damages.
Common Gutter Repairs
Here in Iowa, there are some common types of gutter damage we see. Here’s a closer look at the gutter repairs we most often do for local homeowners:
Leaky gutters: When your gutters are cracked or broken, water will start to leak through the cracks when it rains. As a result, your exterior is prone to damage. When this happens, we can repair these cracks with strong waterproof materials so they continue to work properly.
Faulty downspouts: If your downspouts were installed incorrectly or they are falling apart, they won’t be able to direct water away from your home’s foundation. By repairing the downspouts, you can help protect your home’s structural integrity.
Loose gutters: When your gutters are clogged with debris and standing water, the extra weight can cause them to sag and come loose. Our experts can clean them and reattach or tighten them so they can work well once again.
The Dangers of Putting off Gutter Repairs
If you think that gutter repairs shouldn’t be a top priority, think again! If you put off gutter repairs for too long, you run the risk of experiencing the following issues:
Structural damage: Broken gutters can allow water to make its way to your foundation, causing shifts, soil erosion, cracks in the walls, basement flooding, etc.
Roof damage: When your gutters are clogged, water can back up onto your roof and your shingles can degrade from the standing water.
Pest infestations: When debris gets caught in your broken gutters, water will stay in them when it rains. The combination of standing water and debris is an attractive environment for rodents, birds, and insects, which can lead to an infestation.

Gutter Repair FAQs
Should I do DIY gutter repairs or hire an expert?
Repairing your gutters by yourself can be dangerous, especially if you don’t practice ladder safety in the process. There’s also a chance that you could further damage the gutters in the process of trying to fix them. In most cases, we don’t recommend fixing the damage yourself.
Can you relocate my existing downspouts when repairing my gutters?
Yes! If your current downspouts are too close to your home, we can move them to prevent water from collecting around your foundation.
