There are few things as relaxing as the calming sound of a gentle summer rain on a cool, warm evening. While your family enjoys the sound of rain, overhead, your gutters are working overtime to keep your home dry and safe. Rain gutters are the silent heroes of a home, directing water away from a home and safely out into the lawn. A professionally installed gutter system can last for decades if it’s maintained regularly.
In this post from our Roseville gutter installation team at J&J Roofing, we’ll talk about how often a gutter system needs to be replaced. Check out this guide and then give us a call to discuss gutter replacement solutions for your home.
Maintaining Your Gutters
The material and type of gutter system on your home will directly influence its expected lifespan. Maintaining your gutters will help to ensure they’ll last longer and protect your home for as long as possible.
Here are a few signs your gutters are in need of maintenance or replacement:
● Damaged or flooded landscaping near your home
● Loose or missing fasteners and joints
● Rust or holes near joints or at the bottom of gutters
● Splits between seams
● Sagging, loose, or bent gutters
● Peeling paint or damaged siding
● Improperly extended downspouts or missing downspouts
● Overflowing or leaking water around gutters
● Pulled away from the house
Deciding to Replace Your Gutters
If the damage you’ve identified is not extensive, repairs should be possible. Once your gutters have been repaired, they will need to be regularly cleaned so they won’t clog, collect debris, create ice dams, or become a habitat for animals. If the damage is extensive, your gutters may be beyond repair. Rust is a red flag that gutters need to be replaced right away as it will invariably expand and turn into a hole.
Replacing your gutters gives your system a fresh start and gives you the protection of a warranty. If you’re tired of dealing with gutter cleaning, we can install a custom gutter system with gutter guards to keep debris out and knock an item off of your to-do list.
