It might surprise you how important it is to have gutters on your home that are functioning properly. If your gutters have seen better days, they could be causing more harm than good. It is always a good idea to call for a gutter inspection if you suspect that you need new gutters. Here are a few things to watch out for that can indicate your gutters need attention.
- Gutters are sagging- If the gutters are sagging in many spots, it is a good indication that the connections are failing. Either the sections are pulling apart from each other or the entire gutter system is coming loose from your home. An extensive problem is an indication that new gutters are likely needed.
- Gutters are storm damaged- Hail is very damaging to gutters and can get to the point that they cannot be repaired. If there has been severe weather lately, you may need new gutters and should have your roof inspected, too.
- Gutters are leaking- Sometimes, leaking can be resolved with repairs if the problem is just needing the connections fixed. However, leaks between connections are usually not repairable, and if there are enough areas like that, your gutters have reached the end of their functional lifespan and new gutters are needed.
- Gutters cannot handle water load- If a heavy rain causes rain to slosh out of the gutters, they may not be the right size for your home’s roof pitch and square footage. New gutters to upgrade to the right type will solve this problem.
