What Causes Gutters to Sag or Pull Away?
First of all, when your gutters begin sagging or pulling away, it makes it more difficult for them to do their job. Sagging creates gaps that allow rainwater to drip down the roof edge instead of collecting in your gutters. This water can leak through your exterior walls and windows or collect on the ground below. Water then gets into your basement or causes damage to your home’s foundation. These can be quite expensive to repair. When your gutters sag, they’re more likely to experience leaks, leading to the same issues.
The reason traditional gutters sag or pull away is how they attach to your roof using nails and screws. Through regular wear and tear, these nails or screws can loosen or pop out. Gutters then start to sag or pull away under the weight of heavy rainfall.
How do SnapLock Gutters Prevent Sagging?
The SnapLock Gutters design eliminates sagging or pulling away from the roof. This is because SnapLock gutters are not installed with nails or screws. Instead, they snap onto the edge of the roof. They remain secure across the length of the gutter system this way. Snapping them in also eliminates the possibility of sagging or pulling away. The way they’re installed creates a watertight seal as well, preventing seepage. This, in turn, helps prevent the growth of mold and fungus, which are common with traditional gutter systems.
