Have you noticed these signs of gutter problems?

When gutters start to leak, overflow, or sag, it signals a possible problem, often a clog or crack. A damaged or clogged gutter system can cause erosion and water intrusion, leading to flooded basements and mold growth. It's important to fix gutter problems for safety and functionality. Over time, damaged gutters lead to:

  • Interior water stains
  • Damaged siding
  • Landscaping issues
Cracked gutters

What causes gutter problems?

A gutter system is designed to collect and channel rainwater or melted snow from the roof away from the home. When gutters fail and start to leak, sag, or overflow, it's usually due to one of these conditions.


Gutters collect debris overtime, leading to clogs that can weigh down and damage them. This not only harms your siding and fascia boards but also causes water overflow near your foundation.

Cracks or gaps

Frequent temperature and weather changes cause gutters to crack, especially at the joints, braces, and nails. As holes and gaps form, your gutters will begin to leak.

Inadequate slope

When gutters do not slope enough, water cannot flow towards the downspout. As a result, water will begin to pool, causing leaks and adding excess weight to the system. During winter months, melting snow and ice can build up in the gutters, causing clogs, cracks, and leaks.

Why gutter guards work

Clogged gutters overflowing during heavy rain can become a homeowner's nightmare, leading to a wet and leaky basement. Fortunately, there's a simple solution: gutter guards. These attachments prevent leaves, debris, and even small critters from blocking your gutters, ensuring rainwater flows freely away from your house and foundation. With gutter guards in place, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your basement stays dry and protected.

review "Thrasher and Miquel, their representative, were excellent in their customer communications, customer expectations, and contract delivery. I really appreciated his thoroughness in starting each day, giving a comprehensive update on where the project stood, and again at the end of the day. Clearly very skilled at both their concrete work and their customer management interlock... WELL DONE " - Margery P. - Denver
review "I called Thrasher for an estimate for driveway/sidewalk work. Clint from the Wichita office walked through the repairs needed and gave us a fair cost estimate. Jacob and his crew completed the work, and it looks fantastic. Jacob walked me through the project so that there were no misunderstandings. He was always available to answer questions during the repairs. Overall, this was a very clear and precise process. This added several years to my driveway at a fraction of the cost of replacing it. It also came with a 5-year guarantee. I highly recommend Thrasher for concrete repair." - Mike S. - Wichita
review "Was a pleasure to work with Brett and Frank. I watched the crew drill and inject the poly into the driveway and sidewalk to level out the concrete. They answered my questions throughout the process. Brett spent time and was very patient and helpful in answering my concerns regarding the warranty and maintenance. All in all, I was very satisfied with the project." Cindy G. - Omaha

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 95% of our gutter installation projects take no longer than a day, with most taking just 3/4 of a working day. However, larger homes could take 2-3 days, depending on their size.

  • It's common for roofing companies to offer gutter installation as part of their collective services. However, gutters are actually more related to your foundation than your roof.

    That is why we offer gutter installation services as part of our holistic approach to foundation repair and protection. If we provide foundation repair with basement waterproofing, we also do the services that identify your issue at its root cause.

  • Absolutely. In fact, the number one cause of foundation damage is inadequate drainage. Gutter installation is crucial for your home's water management system.

  • The cost of your gutter installation can be affected by many variables, including gutter material, gutter type, house size, number of downspouts, and number of corners. At Thrasher Foundation Repair, we provide an all-in-one, covered gutter system called Gutter Shutter™. This system includes seamless gutters, gutter guards, and gutter downspouts designed to properly divert water away from your home's foundation and keep your home safe for years to come.

  • Technically, gutters should be installed at 1/4 inch per foot of slope, but it can vary because homes settle. When installing gutters we take two things into account — aesthetics and functionality. We want your gutter system to both look good and work efficiently, so we may suggest adding an additional downspout to achieve this.

  • Gutter Shutter™ is a 6" system. The larger the gutter, the more volume of water it can handle — especially in short bursts. Narrower gutters will work fine for light, steady rain.

  • Installing gutters can be extremely difficult, especially for two-story homes. We care about your health and safety, and we advise all of our clients to opt for professional gutter installation.

  • Seamless gutters are simply another attempt at making gutter systems as durable and efficient as possible. Compared to traditional gutters, they tend to last longer and leak less. However, when deciding whether or not seamless gutters are worth it, it's necessary to consider the other features of the Gutter Shutter™ system, such as the clog-proof gutter guards and double-the-size downspouts.
