What are the Signs of Gutter Overflow?

- Stained walls or siding
- Cracked walls, siding, or foundation
- Water pooling around the foundation
- Overflow between the fascia and drain when it rains
When Do You Need Gutter Cleaning, Repair, or Replacement?
The downspout is the piping that takes the water away from the gutter. If there is overflow around that spot, you probably have a gutter blockage that needs cleaning.
If the overflow occurs in the middle of the gutter or on the opposite end of the downspout, it could be a sign of something more serious that requires repair or replacement.
More severe gutter issues include:
- Poor pitch
- Inadequate gutters
- Insufficient leaders or downspouts
- Poor gutter installation or wear and tear
