Consider Copper

Other Signs To Upgrade Your Gutters

  • Visible Damage

    Visible damage is an obvious sign you need to replace your gutters. Small cracks, holes, or separated seams in your gutters may not seem like an issue, but they will only get worse overtime, leaving you with a leaky drainage system. This can damage your home’s siding, windows, paints, and even your surrounding landscaping.

  • Sagging

    Gutters should be flat and set flush against the roof. But heavy rain or clogged gutters add extra weight, which can cause your gutters to sag, bend, or loosen. If you notice bowing in the gutter, or any sections pulling away from the house, it’s time to repair or replace your gutters.

  • Overflowing Gutters

    Overflowing gutters are usually caused by three reasons:

    1. Your gutters are not long enough to handle the rainwater volume
    2. Your gutters are sagging
    3. The downspout of your gutter is clogged

To check the underlying cause of the overflow, it’s best to contact the professionals for an inspection of your gutters.
