Gutters play a big but often unrecognized role in keeping your home in good condition, directing rainwater away to prevent moisture damage from wreaking havoc on your property. But while high-quality gutters offer a number of advantages, they won’t last forever. This means, at some point, you’re going to have to get new ones from a gutter and roofing company.
These signs should clue you in when it’s time for a gutter replacement:
- Cracks – Gutters with cracks are about as useful as a bucket with holes so they have to go. Note that you can spot bigger cracks even on clear days but smaller ones might only be visible when it rains. You may be able to have individual cracks repaired if they are small enough but extensive damage should have you considering a replacement.
- Weakened Seams – Damage weakens seams, resulting in leaks or complete separation of troughs. If repairs are no longer practical, it’s time to get a new gutter system. Take note that the fewer the seams, the better! If you’re enlisting gutter and roof replacement services already, ask your gutter contractor about making the switch to seamless gutters.
- Mildew – The presence of mildew around your home’s foundation signifies that your gutters are no longer working as they should, meaning they are not directing rainwater away properly. If this is the case, you need a gutter replacement.
