If you’ve ever lost sleep to the irritating tap-tap-tap of water running through your rainwater guttering system, then your not alone. The constant tip-top of rainwater can be very frustrating and even tormenting, but don’t worry, noisy gutters can usually be fixed easily. This article might be your saving grace! Read on to see how you can fix your noisy gutters and downspouts.
Find the noisy gutter/downspout
First of all you need to determine where the drips are coming from and it is usually because of one of these reasons;
1. Rainwater running down the fall pipe can hit the bottom bend creating a very annoying tapping sound.
Place a small piece of sponge at the bottom of the fall pipe outlet taking care not to block the outlet exit. The sponge will silence the tapping by absorbing the fall of the drip.
2. Leaking gutter joints can cause an unpleasant tapping noise especially if the drip is hitting a window sill, roof panel or conservatory roof.
Gutters can leak for a number of reasons, and more often than not, gutter leaks occur at joints such as corners, outlets and unions. Luckily most gutter leaks can be repaired quickly and easily, but it is always worth seeking professional help.
Hire a gutter service professional to find and repair the leaking gutter joint.
3. Rainwater overflowing from the gutter can cause drips hitting the surface below.
Gutters, fall pipes, and rainwater drains commonly block up with leaves, moss and other debris, causing the gutter to overflow.
Hire a professional gutter cleaner to clear out the gutters and unblock the downspouts and drains.
