Hidden Gutters: The Dangers of Incorrect Installation and How We Can Fix it Properly
Hidden gutters, also known as internal gutters or gutter systems, are a popular choice for many homeowners and builders because of their aesthetic appeal and durability. However, despite their many benefits, hidden gutters are often installed incorrectly, which can lead to a number of problems.
One of the main issues with incorrectly installed hidden gutters is that they are not properly connected to the drainage system. This can cause water to leak, leading to water damage and potential structural issues. Additionally, usually the gutter system is not properly pitched, water can collect in low spots or overflow with heavy rain.
Another common problem with hidden gutters is that they are not properly sealed. The seams and drain are usually just nailed and caulked. This can allow water to leak into the building overtime, leading to water damage, mold, and other issues. Improperly sealed hidden gutters can also attract pests, such as rodents and insects, which can cause further damage.
