Common Gutter Issues
Water Falls Behind the Gutter
It is common for roofs with low pitches to experience waterfalls behind its gutter, especially if the roof shingles don’t extend past its edge. In cases like these, the water droplets run back to the wall and fall to the ground and not in the gutter.
If the gutter is attached to the facia, the wood may absorb the water, potentially leading to rot.
Joint Becomes Loose
There are several reasons for gutter joints to become disconnected. These reasons include but aren’t limited to aging, impact damage, and poor installation. Contact gutter repair and replacement roofing contractor in Columbia, SC.
Corrosion and Rust on the Gutter
Rust is a common occurrence with steel gutters and is the result of water and oxygen reacting with the metal. Over time, rust will start eating away at the metal and holes may begin forming. Ultimately, the gutter structure may weaken.
Whether you should have your gutter repaired or replaced depends on the degree of corrosion that has formed.
Gutter Overflows When It Rains
There are three reasons for gutters to overflow:
The drain is too small to accommodate all the rainwater
Gutters run with an incline towards the downspouts
Gutters Tend to Sag or Bend
Your gutters will sag or bend if they:
- Cannot accommodate the weight of the water
- Are not correctly installed
- Are severely damaged
In most cases, sagging or bending gutters will have to be discarded and replaced.
Get Professional Help
Gutters play an essential role in the management of excess water. It is crucial that these channels are always in working condition to prevent water damage to your property.
If you are not knowledgeable about gutters and if you are not particularly handy, you may not be sure what is causing your gutter problem or what you can do to fix it.
Repair or Replace
When you work with CMS Roofing, we will come to your home, inspect your gutter system, and recommend the most suitable and cost-effective course of action.
Repairs are generally the preferred option if the system can still function properly and a fix is more affordable than a complete replacement.
A complete gutter replacement, on the other hand, may be necessary if a repair project will not be enough to restore the functionality of your gutter system. For example, if the system is too small to accommodate the rainfall in your area, or if they are severely corroded, we may recommend that you have your gutter system fully replaced.

Thanks to all at CMS for being one of the best companies I have dealt with over 30 years of maintaining rental properties and residences.
Thanks so much for the great work your crew did on our roof last week. We have a “dead valley” in our roof and piled debris and incorrect flashing and tie in from the original builder left us with a looming problem. We knew it would leak eventually, but now the roof is fixed and we have peace of mind.
Excellent job, per normal expectations. Took some time to fully complete, but we are still very happy and satisfied, once again.

I want to thank you and your employees for a job well done. I had called four different companies the day I called you. One company called me back in 4 days, another called back in 7 days and the third never did call back. Your estimator was at my house the next day as promised. When the crew showed up to do the work they were on time as promised.
