To Repair or To Replace? Signs That You Need New Gutters

By March 10, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

A reliable gutter system can last 20 to 30 years. However, for your gutter system to last as long as possible, you might need to conduct repairs from time to time. Regular gutter cleaning is one way to extend the life span of your gutters. Using a Gutter Helmet system in Marshalltown IA, and the surrounding area, is another. If you do detect minor damage, this can easily be repaired. However, if gutter issues are becoming more and more frequent or are putting a strain on your budget, you may want to consider getting them replaced. Severe gutter damage may also warrant replacement. The following are indicators that might indicate that it’s time to have your gutters replaced:

• Sagging. If your gutters are pulling away from your home, this can leave fascia boards exposed and could result in total gutter collapse. Sagging may be caused by overflowing or clogged downspouts
• Blockage. Too much debris clogging the gutters can cause blockages. Watermarks under the gutters and mildew growth on your foundation are clear signs that the gutters need to be replaced
• Leaks. Leaks can sometimes come from openings at the joints or from cracks due to corrosion. While you could repair these areas, once they are damaged, they become weak spots that could cause recurring problems

Whether you decide to get your gutters repaired or replaced, make sure that new system is safe from damage! We at Seamless Exterior recommend that you use Gutter Helmet in Marshalltown, and the surrounding area, in order to keep those gutters in shape for a long time.
