One good way to save yourself from needing gutter repair or replacement is giving your gutters the proper maintenance and care they need.
Causes of Gutter Damage
Gutter damage can be caused by a number of different things, including:
- Severe weather (heavy rain, snow, hail and ice can damage your gutters)
- Lack of maintenance (you may be surprised how many homeowners don’t ever inspect or clean out their gutters, which can lead to gutter sagging, leaking and other problems)
- Blockage (extremely clogged gutters are more easily damaged; your gutter will fail to work properly if there is excessive debris buildup, including leaves, moss, snow, dead animals, etc.)
- Age (old gutters are more susceptible to damage and are more likely to fail)
It’s important to prevent gutter damage as best as you can (especially in the winter, but in the summer as well), whether this means getting on a ladder and checking out the gutters yourself or hiring a professional company (which is not only more efficient but safer as well!). In between professional gutter inspections, keep your gutters and downspouts clear of ice, snow and other debris, by checking them periodically (and more so in the winter) and remove any leaves, snow or icicles that have accumulated.
Reliable Gutter Repair
Whether your gutter system is sectional or seamless, copper or vinyl, clean or clogged up, we provide quality gutter repair or – if a repair doesn’t quite cut it or the gutter is more than 15 years old – gutter replacement. We:
- Inspect your gutters
- Clean your gutters
- Repair leaking or sagging gutters

Sometimes gutter repair is as simple as clearing out leaves, moss, gravel, snow, even old tennis balls or baseballs from the gutter – but fixing sagging, leaking or replacing old gutters is best left to the pros!
Is your gutter properly draining? If you’re unsure, there are a couple of things you can look for to help you determine whether it needs a repair. Several indications of a clogged gutter include peeling paint, rotting wood, mold on your home’s exterior and a lot of puddles outside your house.
If you experience any of these, or if you’re unsure, don’t wait – contact us today! Trust us, the longer you wait, the worse your problem will become.
Need a New Gutter?
If your gutter needs more than a repair, it’s better to replace it as soon as possible. Don’t put off a replacement if you truly need one – this will only cause more damage and cost you more money in the long run!
Gutters can last from anywhere from eight to 20 years – provided that they receive proper maintenance. Clean gutters and downspouts will last longer and work more efficiently than clogged and aged ones, so to avoid premature gutter replacement, inspect and maintain your gutters.
Whether you have a sagging, clogged, leaking or old gutter, Shanco can help! Even if your gutter has failed for seemingly no reason, we have you covered. If you need gutter repair services in Maryland, Washington, DC or Virginia, call us today!
