Replacing Your Rain Gutters

Gutters are very important to maintaining the integrity of your home. They are vital for protecting your home’s foundation and prevent costly water damage by directing water away from your home. When overlooked, water can seep into your home and cause major damage. Any responsible homeowner will definitely want to maintain a proper gutter system.

While it is always important to consult with a professional when replacing rain gutters, here are some indicators that your seamless gutters may need to be replaced:

1. Your gutters are rusting or bubbling.
2. Gutters are sagging, pulling away from your home, and are not level.
3. Gutters are bent, dented, and have holes that are beyond repair.
4. You notice paint is peeling or wood is rotting on the exterior of your home. This is caused by water back splashing and may be a sign of misaligned or worn gutters.
5. Water is leaking into your home, causing damage in your basement. This is a sign your gutters are not properly directing water away from your home. In this case, replacing eavestrough is essential.
