Ensuring your gutters are correctly flowing will save you money in the long run, but what is the best way to check for gutter leaks? Read below.
It’s important to note that testing for gutter leaks is best done with two people. This way, someone can be up on a ladder while the second person remains on the ground looking for leaks.
Once you are ready to begin, start by looking at the gutters in segments separated by downspouts rather than a whole. Use a garden hose or bucket to flush water through the gutters and have the person on the ground identify where the leak occurs. Take a look at each leak to determine the cause and the size of the leak. A gutter professional can take it from this point and repair the leak, restoring your system to its original condition.
