Damaged Rain Gutters in Grand Rapids?

Before winter sets in is an excellent time for Grand Rapids residents to inspect rain gutter systems for possible damage or debris and make repairs as needed. SERVPRO® of Bemidji, Grand Rapids & Hibbing responds to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day, and we typically arrive onsite within four hours of your call. Here are some tips for inspecting your rain gutters from home expert Bob Villa:

Inspect your rain gutters for visible signs of cracking. Use binoculars to inspect for smaller cracks. If you see extensive cracking, replacement is required.

Inspect gutter seams for damage where two horizontal sections meet.

Inspect your home’s paint job. If there is evidence of paint peeling, it may point to rain gutter failure. Check the section of the rain gutter closest to the paint damage for leaks. If there are more than a couple of leaks, you may want to replace the rain gutters.

Inspect your home’s exterior wood elements for rotting windowsills or door jambs. You may have clogged rain gutters or inadequate storm drainage.

Inspect the exterior of the home for mildew damage. If there is moisture accumulating around or near the foundation, mildew can grow. This is a sign your rain gutters are not working properly.
