While gutters and downspouts are sturdier than they might appear at first, nothing lasts forever. If you don’t know the last time your home had getter replacement or are noticing some issues with your gutters and downspouts, it may be time for gutter replacement. However, it is important to be able to tell the difference between small easily fixable issues and problems which require extensive repair and gutter replacement. Let’s talk about signs that indicate it may be time for downspout and gutter replacement.
NUMEROUS CRACKS, HOLES, OR RUST SPOTS
If you have a crack or two, or another small imperfection, these can generally be fixed using sealant and a small amount of flashing. However, if you see numerous imperfections, holes, or clearly worn and rusted spots, you may want to get new gutters entirely.
A NUMBER OF BROKEN FASTENERS
Fasteners are the pieces of metal that hold your gutter to your roof and keep it level. If you notice a broken fastener or two and can fix it, that’s wonderful. However consistently broken fasteners may be a sign that your problems lay with the gutters themselves.
Water constantly pouring through downspouts from leaking gutters near your foundation can leak into the basement. This can do costly damage to your home over time. While repairing your basement, you should also get gutter replacement in order to avoid more flooding in the future.
GUTTERS THAT PULL AWAY FROM THE ROOF
You can hammer in fasteners over and over again, however if you find yourself having to do this repeatedly, the fascia boards may be rotting. Gutter replacement will easily solve both of these problems.
