How To Spot Water Drainage Problems Early

Seamless Gutters

A problem with how your Pensacola, Florida home drains away water can turn into a major expense, unless you recognize and tackle the problem right away.

Water can definitely be your worst enemy as a Pensacola, Florida homeowner — it can cause problems inside and outside your Pensacola, Florida home, especially if your current guttering is not equipped to handle the amount of water you are getting, the downspouts are not large enough, or the gutters are not maintained properly.  To help prevent issues and to spot the ones already there, here are some signs of water drainage problems that can tell you it is time to have your gutters inspected, repaired or replaced.

  • Peeling Paint
    Do you see paint bubbling or peeling off your siding or wood? Take a close look at your entire Pensacola, Florida home. This can be an indicator of a gutter problem. If your gutters are not performing as they should, water can build up or overflow in areas you don’t want water to get into- causing potential problems.
    This can mean water is running down the sides of your home vs being pulled away by the gutters. The runoff water is not getting away from your Pensacola, Florida home as intended. This is very common with gutter leaks or improperly installed guttering. Instead it is running down the side seeping into wood trim and seeping into the ground near the foundation of your home. This could cause even more serious foundation issues if the issue is not taken care of.
  • Wall Cracks
    In Florida, we don’t really have basements for water to be a problem with- however, water damage can be seen even here. Small cracks are somewhat normal from settling and age, but any larger cracks can mean trouble.  Walk around your Pensacola, Florida home inspecting the foundation area. Do you notice any larger or growing cracks? This could be caused by excessive water being absorbed right by your wall due to improper drainage. Your gutters could be inadequate, clogged, or even broken.
  • Mulch Is Washing Away
    If your mulch or soil is washing away into your lawn, drive, or the street’s drains, you may have drainage problems. Downspouts may not be positioned correctly, causing issues with things like your patio, driveway or walkway, as soil erosion undermines the concrete structure.
  • Attic Mold
    If your gutters are filled with standing water, the fascia boards holding these gutters up are under stress, and can eventually begin to break or rot. Rot can spread to the rest of your roof quickly, but the first sign of a gutter or moisture-related issue you will be able to spot from the attic is in your insulation. Moist or even moldy insulation is a clear indication that your rain gutters aren’t carrying away water like they should.
  • Water Around Your Foundation
    Last but not least- look around the perimeter of your
