Having efficient gutters help protect your property against water damage, which can be quite costly. Cleaning your gutters twice a year may be necessary, especially when inclement weather happens, or when your property has a lot of trees around it. Cleaning your gutters ensures that they don’t become clogged. Even with regular maintenance, it’s typical that over time, repair and replacement happens. Not sure when gutter replacement needs to happen? Then, keep reading. Here’s a blog all about gutter replacement and knowing when it’s time.
Do You See Cracks or Splits?
When small cracks grow over time, water seeps into the fascia boards located behind the gutters. Water can also flow into the shingles above or into the foundation below. Split or cracked sections of gutter require repair, and we can help with that because of our roofing expertise.
Do You Notice Rust or Paint Damage?
When an expert roofing company installs your gutters, the paint should be weather-resistant. Peeling, rusted paint shows that water is on the surface and has been there consistently. Look for clogs and remove debris so that the water can flow. To fix the appearance of the paint, replace it or touch it up.
Do You See Mold?
If you notice standing water or mildew, this usually means two things. One, it could mean that there is a clog. Two, it could also mean that the gutter system is defective altogether. Remove the clog, and if the issue persists, then you can count on us for gutter replacement and downspout replacement.
Do You See Watermarks on a Sunny Day or Notice That There’s Sagging?
If you notice that on a sunny, dry day, there are watermarks, then this is a sign of water damage. Water damage underneath gutters means that they’re leaking or overflowing with water.
Sagging means that proper drainage is no longer happening. At this point, gutter replacement needs to happen ASAP. Hiring a professional roofing company is always the best thing to do. Fixing any part of the roof isn’t the most straightforward task when you aren’t a professional, and it can be dangerous. If “yes” was how you answered any of these questions, then give us a call.
