When is it Time for New Gutters?
Common Signs that You Need New Gutters
Gutters and downspouts are one of the most important functional elements on your home. They protect your house from the rain which reduces the risks of having extensive, expensive moisture-related problems. However, they are not indestructible and even well-maintained, high-quality gutters eventually wear and need to be replaced. That is why we have put together a list of the most common signs that means it is time to get new gutters.
Broken or Loose Components
If you find broken fasteners or nails and screws on the ground, you know you have a problem. The fasteners hold your gutter to your roof and keep it level. While the nails and screws join the gutter to the fascia. Replacing these important pieces is not difficult; but if the problem persists, it is a clear symptom of gutter wear.
Numerous Cracks, Holes, Or Rust Spots
Even though cracks or holes can be fixed by applying some sealant, if you see more than half a dozen sections where this is apparent, then it is best to get new gutters.
Peeling Exterior Paint
When gutters pull away from your roof, the water can run down over the rear edge or at the back of the gutter to finally reach your siding or trim. As a result, over time, you will see peeling paint.
The guttering systems only perform at their best if they are joined together in a continuous channel. If they begin separating from one another frequently, consider replacing them. And of course, if they are pulling away from the roof, it is time to get new gutters.
