Your gutters are responsible for protecting your home from water damage by channeling water away from your roof and foundation. Like any part of your home, however, they are susceptible to wear and tear as a result of constant exposure to the elements. Identifying early signs of problems in your gutters can help prevent serious damage later on.

3 Signs Your Gutter System Needs to Be Replaced

Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville, your local gutter protection service provider, shares three signs your gutters need to be replaced.

1. Cracks on Your Gutters

Gutters filled with cracks are as useless as the bottom of a bucket with a hole in it. Regardless of the size of the cracks, this can cause water damage, especially to your siding, roof and foundation. If your gutters are cracked, they need to be replaced as soon as possible.

2. Damage at the Seams

Most gutters are made of sections that are connected by seams. These seams are vulnerable to separations, leading to leaks. Fortunately, Gutter Helmet of Cookeville offers an excellent alternative to sectional gutters: seamless gutters. Running from one end of the roofline to the other in one piece, seamless gutters reduce the risk of leaks.

3. Damage Due to Rot

Cracks and detached gutter sections cause water to leak and flow along your home’s exterior. Ignoring this allows rot to occur, which may affect your door jambs, window sills and other wooden trim elements. Replace your gutters right away if you notice this type of damage.

At Gutter Helmet of Cookeville, we can help improve your gutter system. Apart from seamless gutters, we also provide a gutter protection service where we install Gutter Helmet. When you decide to equip your functioning gutters with this product, you won’t have to worry about gutter cleaning or maintenance ever again.
