A properly functioning roof gutter is one of the most integral aspects of your home, tirelessly protecting your house’s structural integrity and fending off storms. The sad truth is that gutters can’t last forever. Replacing a defective gutter right away is a cost-effective way to shield your home from serious damage in the long run. Below are some telltale warning signs that your gutters may need replacement.
Sagging or Gaps Between You Gutter and Your Home
Any indication that your gutter is sagging or pulling away from your roof should immediately be a red alert that it is probably time to get a gutter replacement. Your fascia board could also be rotting or otherwise damaged and in need of replacement. Call in the professionals as soon as you notice gaps forming between your gutter and your house.
Signs of Water Damage in Areas Around Your Gutter
Exterior paint that is peeling or bubbled up due to excess moisture can be a surefire sign that you need a gutter replacement. As soon as you see areas of water damaged paint, check the nearest gutter to see if it is the culprit. If the paint on your gutter itself is peeling, you can be even more confident your roof gutter is leaking and likely needs replacement. If your siding shows dark patches, mold, or mildew, this could also be a warning sign that your gutter is compromised and leaking. If you suspect your leaky gutter is causing water damage to your home, have a pro take a look right away to see if you need a roof gutter replacement.
Leaks or Unleveled Gutter Seams
If your roof gutters leak from joints, cracks, or seams, it is likely time to get a gutter replacement. Gutters are generally the most vulnerable at the seams. If you notice unlevel gutter seams or any separation occurring between them, you have a problem on your hands. Seamless gutters are a great option that eliminate the potential for issues arising from your gutter seams.
Gutters exhibiting a significant amount of rust are generally not strong enough to hold large volumes of water or to stand up to a storm. Rust often leads to deterioration and rusty gutters often have small holes that spring leaks. As soon as you notice a strong presence of rust on your roof gutter, it’s time to get a new one.
