How to Know When It’s Time to Replace Your Gutters
If you’re like most folks, chances are your gutters could use some TLC. Depending on how long it has been since you’ve had your gutters cleaned and maintained, your gutters may need some repairing. If the damage is significant, you may be better off replacing your gutters.
Why maintain your gutters?
A home’s gutters are its first defense against basement flooding, foundation cracks and soil erosion. Keeping your gutters in good shape can save you from suffering more serious damage. Areas that experience heavy precipitation are more at risk for gutter damage than drier areas. Heavy downpours often can often clog your gutters by washing debris into your system.
You can always ensure that your gutters are protected by enrolling in a regular gutter maintenance plan.
