What to expect from your gutters

Gutter systems serve to collect rainwater along the edges of your roof and redirect it away from the sides of your house. Ideally your gutter system should carry the rainwater at least 10 feet from your home to prevent ground erosion and damage to your landscaping. If functioning properly, gutter systems will help prevent significant damage to your home by directing water away from the siding, foundation, windows and doors. Without gutters, major storms can more easily lead to flooding and both interior and exterior damage to your home.

Signs that you may need gutter replacement

Cleaning your gutters a few times a year is the best way to increase the life of your gutters, but eventually they will likely need full gutter replacement to keep doing their job properly. Some signs that it is time to replace or repair your home gutter system include:

  • Gutters sagging or pulling away from the house: This issue is easy to spot from the ground and indicates serious problems with your gutters. They may be full of water causing them to sag or are simply losing their connection with the house.
  • There are visible leaks or holes: Any cracks in your gutter will turn into large holes if left unattended. Addressing leaks or holes early will help prevent significant damage to your home.
  • There are missing portions of your gutter system: If portions of your gutter system have fallen away, it’s definitely time to a gutter replacement. The system cannot function properly without all of its components.
  • The downspout is not carrying the water away from your home: Problems with the downspout can lead to pooling water or damaged landscaping near your foundation. Water that collects there can then seep into your basement, causing water damage.
  • Water is overflowing from portions of your gutter system and not properly flowing down the downspout: While this issue can indicate you simply haven’t cleaned your gutter in too long, it can also indicate a more significant issue. If the gutter appears clean, you should have the system checked for clogs or other problems.
  • Paint is peeling on the side of your home: Paint peeling on exterior walls can indicate that your gutters have been leaking slightly for some time, leading to water damaging the paint on your walls.

If you notice any of these signs during or after a rainstorm, it may be time to have your gutters replaced.
