line defenses against water damage & if left ignored can cause a wide variety or
problems to your home. Sometimes however, even with regular maintenance your gutters
will need to be replaced.

Here are the top 5 signs that your gutters need to be replaced:

1. Old Gutters

Sometimes there is just no way around it, and sadly due to the housing boom of the 90’s most homes have gutters between 15 & 20 years old, which isn’t a problem on its own, but if the gutters have not been cared for properly it’s probably time to replace them do to compiled damage.

2. Sagging

Or pulling away from the house. When gutters sag or pull away from a home they may not be doing their jobs properly, water can pour onto the base of the home creating rotting fascia or even destroying the homes foundation! Here are a few helpful tips if your home has already received quite a bit of water damage.

After years of use it isn’t uncommon for a gutter to leak, sometimes these leaks can be repaired through patches but depending on the extent of damage there may be no way to patch the holes.

4. Mold or Darkening of the color

At the base of the home these two things are clear indicators that water is finding its way onto the the base of your home, the first thing to check is that the water spout of your current gutter is facing away from the home directing water away from walls.

5. Paint chipping

Or wearing away- outdoor paints on and around gutters are created to handle extreme conditions but when you see it start to chip away this usually means there is standing water that is getting under it and causing it to bubble and rot away.
