Thanks to gutters and downspouts, homeowners such as yourself don’t need to worry about the rainwater that runs off your roof. After all, it’s main purpose is to catch said water and safely divert it away from your home to prevent moisture damage. However, a gutter system will only work well if it’s properly attached to your home. Otherwise, they can create a lot of noise whenever it rains.
Here are the possible reasons why your gutters and downspouts are making noise.
Your Gutters and Downspouts are at an Awkward Angle
At first glance, it may seem like your gutters and downspouts are at the right angle. However, if they continue to make lots of noise, it’s possible that your gutters and downspouts are actually at an awkward angle or has a too rigid structure, preventing the rainwater from sliding along the edges and causing it to freefall into the downspout instead. To rectify this, you may need to have a professional replace the bottom section of your downspout to give it a wider, smoother angle.
The Brackets and Appendages Have Loosened
As stated before, your gutter system needs to be properly attached to your home for it to work properly. Unfortunately, a combination of time, strong winds, and other weather events can loosen the brackets and appendages, weakening your gutter’s hold on your roof. This can cause water to jiggle the already loosened gutters, causing a lot of noise as a result.

Your Gutters are Clogged
Alternatively, it’s possible that your gutters and downspouts are making noise because they’re clogged. Apart from having to be properly attached to your home, gutters also work best when they’re clear so the water will be able to gently slide from piece to piece until it arrives at your downspouts. If your gutters are clogged, the water won’t flow so peacefully, creating noise in the process. With that in mind, make sure to clean your gutters every now and then to ensure that they won’t make any noise when it rains.
