Your gutters are important for directing the flow of water. When it rains, gutters channel water from the roof to the downspouts and away from your home. If there is no gutter system or the gutters are not working as they should, water can collect on the roof where it can cause deterioration and mold growth. The water can also pool around the foundation, which can weaken the structural integrity of your home or result in basement flooding.
Some of the most common gutter problems include:
- Overflowing gutters when it rains
- Sagging gutters
- Improper slope
- Incorrect installation
- Storm or weather damage
- Ice damage
- Missing sections
- Incorrectly sized gutters
- Rust and corrosion
- Excessive debris buildup from lack of cleaning
Is It Time for Gutter Replacement?
The best way to restore your gutters may be repair or replacement, depending on the specific problem and how much work is needed to restore their function. Gutter repair can include fixing loose pieces, screwing pieces together, or replacing missing sections. In some situations, repair isn’t enough to restore the gutter system and the gutters need to be replaced.
Issues that may necessitate a replacement include:
- Large cuts or cracks in the gutters
- Numerous missing sections
- Standing water
- Badly sagging gutters
- Large gaps
- Water damage marks
- Rust and corrosion
- Mold growth
In addition, if the gutters are too small or you are installing a new roof, you may want to have new gutters installed at the same time. Your roofing contractor can perform an inspection to determine if your gutters need to be repaired or replaced. Installation starts with selecting the best type and size and designing a gutter system that will provide optimal protection. The gutters must be properly installed and correctly sized. For this reason, leave new installations to our professionals.
