Need Los Angeles Based Rain Gutter Specialists Guy ZIV Says Happy New Year With This Comprehensive Resource  

In an interview by KISS PR Brand Story CEO Qamar Zaman, LA County Rain gutter company led by Guy ZIV offers LA homeowners rain gutter solutions using this comprehensive guide.

Rain gutters, being an important part of the homes, are subjected to various changes due to natural elements – especially during the rainy and hurricane season. Such severe climatic conditions can test the rain gutters to maintain large amounts of water as well as sustain the impact of strong winds.

A lot of times such climatic conditions lead to horrendous results and cause rain gutters some serious issues. When such an incident occurs, it is best to go through a rain gutter replacement as soon as possible. Many times avoiding scrutinizing the gutter system can cause bigger problems leading to water flooding in your home.

The best you can do is analyze your rain gutter system after any strong climatic event to verify its functioning. Here are some common signs that indicate an instant repair or replacement of rain gutters

  • Cracks

If you think cracking rain gutters are common, you need to consider the situation again. While one or two cracks may not cause any problem but over time these can turn into a real threat for your home. Hence, pay heed to any visible cracks in your rain gutters and consider replacement to avoid further damage.

  • Broken Fasteners

Fasteners are the metal pieces that ensure firm attachment between rain gutters and the roof. Also, these prevent the gutters from sagging.

Once in a while, you will find issues with fasteners when repairing will be the only option left. However, if you begin to spend a lot of time and money on its repair, you should consider checking your gutter system.

In such a case, there are high chances of your rain gutters to need a replacement.

  • Flooded Basement 

The most common sign of an issue with rain gutters is the flooded basement. If you observe a sudden accumulation of water in your basement or a continuous leakage, you must consider replacing the rain gutter system.

If left unnoticed, this condition can lead to complete damage to the foundation of your home. Furthermore, excessive flooding of water also causes plumbing problems that require expensive repairs.

  • Peeling Paint

If you observe paint peeling out from the surface, it is a sign that you need a replacement. Peeling of paint doesn’t happen out of the blue. It is a gradual process that leads to peeling off. The situation usually occurs when rain gutters detach from the roof causing water to run down the wall. Consequently, constant dripping of water leads to the peeling of paint.

This is a serious problem to acknowledge as the wall can not only damage but also makes the entire look of your home turn ugly.

  • Missing Rain Gutters

As mentioned, severe weather conditions especially heavy rainfall or storm can lead to serious issues to the rain gutter system. Sometimes such untoward climatic conditions can cause the entire section of a rain gutter to become detached or be blown away by the wind.

So, there is no other option left than replacing the entire gutter system.

  • Water Pooling

Similar to flooding of the basement, pooled water is also a telltale sign that your rain gutter system is not functioning properly. If you frequently observe the pooling of water around your rain gutter after heavy rainfall or a storm, it’s a clear sign that it requires an instant replacement.

  • Loose Nails and Screws

If you begin to notice protruding nails or screws from the rain gutters or you come across loose screws from the water collection system, you need an emergency replacement of rain gutters.

Also, if you notice rain gutters detaching from your home easily because of loose screws, it’s time to consider a replacement.


“Rain gutters aren’t a real threat to your place but gradual deterioration due to external climatic conditions or improper maintenance can cause them to suffer over time. A lot of these issues can be resolved with slight repairs in the initial phases. However, there is no substitute for replacement when the situation worsens. Of course, a gutter replacement is heavier on your pocket than a repair but it also ensures durability for the coming years.” Guy Ziv.
