Signs you Need to Replace Your Gutters

Gutters collect rainwater from the roof, away from your home. They protect the walls and exterior of your home and prevent water from getting into the house. Gutters must be cleaned, repaired, and, eventually, new gutter installations should be done. This video shows signs that indicate the gutters need to be replaced.

Here are some gutter replacement warning signs.

1. Cracks

Water dripping from the gutter indicates cracks in the gutters. While smaller cracks can be repaired, consider replacing the gutter if the cracks are big.

2. Poorly Installed Gutter Brackets

Gutter brackets spaced too far apart will also cause gutters to sag. This can lead to breakage due to the weight of the water.

3. Sagging Gutters

Sagging gutters causes water to stagnate in the gutter. This can cause rust, leaks and water overflowing from the gutter when it rains.

4. Peeling Paint

Peeling paint on your exterior walls indicates there is water leakage. Check the condition of the nearest gutter.

5. Water Damage Signs

Look out for water damage signs, especially beneath the gutters.

Do not delay in having your gutter installations done, and it should be carried out by professionals to ensure quality and longevity.
