How to Know When It’s Time to Replace Your Gutters

Follow By Email Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

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.

Signs you need to replace your gutters

The following symptoms can translate into serious costs in damages to your home. Make sure to take action if you notice any of these:

  •       Basement flooding
  •       Your paint is peeling
  •       Water channels form in your yard
  •       Foundation problems such as cracking or crumbling
  •       Puddles form around home after rain
  •       Mold growing on your siding
  •       Gutters appear to be falling down

Signs you need to repair your gutters

If you’re not experiencing any of the more severe symptoms that necessitate a full gutter replacement, you may be able to have your gutters repaired if they exhibit any of these issues:

  •       Your gutters appear loose
  •       Your gutters look saggy
  •       Your gutters appear to be leaning

Of course, you can always have your gutters inspected by a professional so you can be assured that your home is protected.
