Gutter damage can happen for a number of reasons, from improper maintenance to storm damage to just plain wear and tear over the years.

- Water is leaking into your basement. Clogged, damaged, or worn gutters are main reasons for basement leaks.
- Mold in your basement. Leaky gutters create moisture in your basement, which leads to mold growth.
- Problems with your home’s foundation. Gutters that are clogged or leaking water towards your foundation instead of directing water away from it could cause cracks in your foundation.
- Standing water in your gutters. This is a sure sign of non-performing gutters.
- Gutters are sagging, pulling away from your home, hanging down or leaning more towards the front instead of being level, or seamed gutters are loose or pulling apart at the seams and are too worn to be reattached.
- Your gutters are bent, dented, or have holes or cracks in them beyond repair.
- Gutters are not draining properly. Look for these two telltale signs:
- When it’s raining, listen to how the rain is flowing out of your gutters. If you can hear water smacking to the ground, that means the water is pouring over the sides of the gutter. This could be a result of misaligned gutters or a gutter blockage.
- Puddles of water forming around your home after it rains or mold growing around your home’s foundation or facade.
- The paint on your home is peeling, wood is corroding in areas behind the gutter, or you’re seeing rust stains on your home. This is caused by gutter water back splashing or overflowing and running down the back of the gutter along the exterior of your home. Your gutters could be worn, misaligned or clogged.
- Your gutters have rusted.
- You can see gaps either between gutter connections or between the gutters and the fascia boards to which they are attached.
- You’re finding nails or broken fasteners on the ground, which have fallen from loose gutters.
- Water channels are forming in your landscaping or parts of your landscaping are washing out or eroding. These are signs your gutters are not performing properly.
