Some Common Causes of Gutter Sagging

Some Common Causes of Gutter Sagging

October 11, 2016

Sagging is a common gutter problem that should be addressed right away. As the trusted name in gutters replacement, Huff ‘N Puff wants to share with you the chief causes behind sagging. When your gutter system sags, the cause may be one of these usual suspects:

Common Causes of Gutter Sagging

Clogs

Trapped debris, including leaves, twigs, and pine needles, can form blockages that disrupt the natural flow of rainwater and melted snow to the ground. This paves the way for ponding, causing your gutters to carry tremendous weights for a long period. Even if your gutters could accommodate the heaviest of downpours, they’re not designed to shoulder the heft of standing bodies of trapped water—especially if they’re just attached using screws or nails. Eventually, this structural burden can cause your gutter system to collapse.

At Huff ‘N Puff, we can help reduce the chances of clogging to zero using Gutter Helmet® gutter covers. Our revolutionary gutter protection system filters out debris while allowing the water to flow freely all the way to the ground.

Warping

The perennial temperature fluctuations could cause your gutters to deform. Standard aluminum, steel, and vinyl expand and contract during summer and winter respectively. In turn, the material starts to warp and sag. We help prevent gutter warping by using heavy gauge aluminum. This premium material can withstand extreme seasonal changes for years to come.

Poor Installation

Your gutters are only as good as their installer. Even the most robust system is bound to sag quickly if the installation is subpar. Subpar workmanship stems from a lack of proficiency and experience.

Fortunately, Huff ‘N Puff has been synonymous with uncompromising gutter installation in Hudson Valley and the Capital Region for great reasons. Perfection is our virtue; we strive to do our job with excellence and repay your good business with flawless work.
