What Causes Overflowing Gutters and How to Fix These Issues
Gutters are meant to protect your roof, siding, foundation, and other exterior components from water damage. While they are essential in keeping your home in good shape, it’s easy to overlook them. Make sure to address this issue immediately if you don’t want to end up with costly repair bills.
Read on to learn what causes overflowing gutters and how to deal with this problem.
What Causes Overflowing Gutters?
Improper Position - Your gutters need to be pitched and tilted properly to ensure efficient water flow. An overflow can occur when the gutter is tilting away from your home. It’s the same for overly steep or lacking gutter pitch.
Clogged Gutters - Fallen leaves, branches, seeds, and other debris can clog your gutters. Clogging is the most common cause of overflowing gutters. You can delay the need for a roof replacement by keeping your gutters debris-free.
Gutters That Are Too Small – When your gutters are too small, they won’t be able to handle the volume of water running down the roof. If your gutters aren’t clogged and the system has the right pitch, your gutters are likely overflowing because they are of the wrong size.

Gutter maintenance is a dangerous task that you never really think about until you run into a problem.

The system is built around the patented K-Guard high-strength hangers. These hangers are made from all-weather polymers set every 24 inches inside the gutter. They fully support the hood and keep the gutter from sagging or losing its form. K-Guard gutters are a full 5 inches wide, allowing the system to drain more water than other, smaller systems. They accommodate the larger 3 x 4-inch downspouts to efficiently flush out any small debris that might make its way into the system.
