When Should I Replace My Gutters?
With proper care, good materials and a quality installation, a good set of gutters can last 20 years or more. However, if you notice any signs of damage to your gutters, siding or inside of your home, it might be time to replace your gutters.
Signs That You Need New Gutters
Water always finds the path of the least resistance. So, if there are any cracks or holes in your gutters, it’s time for a replacement or repair. If you don’t see any cracks immediately, watch for any drips that don’t look normal after a rainstorm.
If you notice any obvious signs like a broken section of your gutter system, it obviously needs repair. If your gutters are old, or your house sustained storm damage, you should inspect the outside of your home for breaks and other damages.
Dirty or Mildewed Siding
Old and damaged gutters may leak water down the side of your house, which promotes the growth of mold, moss and mildew. The longer you let the damage from broken gutters remain unfixed, the higher the chances are that the repairs will cost more later.
Aside from dirty and mildewed paint and siding, you might notice peeling and warping on the sides of your house. Damaged paint is more noticeable and likely if you have a broken gutter, but over time some types of siding can warp with exposure to poor gutter drainage.
Leaning or Structural Strain
The older your home, the more likely that your gutters will show signs of structural strain. The seams where gutters are installed are particularly susceptible to strain. If it looks like your gutters are leaning unnaturally, you should have them inspected by a roofing professional.
