It may be time for new gutters

It may be time for new gutters

Dec 19, 2016

Although it may not sound like the most exciting home improvement project, new gutters may be just what your property needs.
Not only does this improve the functionality of your home, but it also goes a long way in enhancing its curb appeal.
Here are five signs that it may be time for new gutters:

1. Cracks or Splits

This doesn’t always appear to be a major problem, but it’s something that can quickly worsen. One crack turns into a bigger crack and soon enough the gutter is unable to do its job.

2. Peeling Paint

This doesn’t necessarily point towards the need for new gutters, but it’s something to keep an eye on.
As paint begins to peel, you may realize that rust is becoming a problem. This can impact the performance of your gutters while also dragging down the overall look of your home.

3. Leaks when it Rains

Have you ever inspected your gutters while it rains? You don’t have to go on your roof to do so.
Instead, stand on the ground (or look from a window) to ensure that the water is moving through the system in the appropriate manner. If it’s not, it’s time to take a closer look. For instance, you may find that water is overflowing in a particular spot.

4. Water Damage

If you spot water damage beneath the gutters, something is going on. This typically means that water is escaping the gutter (overflowing), which is causing gradual damage.

You don’t want to ignore this, as it’ll only get worse over time.

5. Sagging Gutters

Simply put, if your gutters are sagging there’s a good chance it’s time for a replacement. Gutters should never pull away from your home. If this happens, contact a professional to inspect the issue and help you decide what to do next.
