Signs You Need Gutter Replacement
If your gutters are displaying one or more of the following warning signs, you need your gutter replaced and new gutters installed by the experienced professionals of Nickerson’s Roofing.
– Cracks or splits on the gutters or downspout. Small cracks, splits, gaps, and holes my not seem to be a major distress on your gutters, but sooner rather than later, these small imperfections will be major issues. If the gutters do not function at 100% efficiency, the gutters will deteriorate quickly; fascia boards behind the gutters will be exposed to water damage along with the shingles and foundation, causing you to have costly repairs and replacements.
– Gutter or down spout obstructions. This issue happens when the gutters do not get cleaned regularly; blockages will inevitably happen. But, if left unattended for too long, rust can over take the gutters, and mold and mildew could develop and spread out on the structure. If the blockage is due to a crinkled gutter, that too will need to be stemmed and lead you to needing the gutters replaced.
– Paint wear on gutters. Noticing the paint peeling, flaking or being inflicted with orange flecks, is the first sign that rust has taken hold. Rust is incurable. It can be treated to slow down the effects, but once rust settles in, your gutters will quickly be over taken and beyond sufficient use.
– Pooling water near the home’s foundation. As mentioned before, the gutter direct the flow of water off your roof and away from your house. If you notice pools of water, mildew or mold at the base, your gutters are not performing accordingly.
– Gutters are leaking, sagging or pulling away from your home. If the gutters are pulling away from their original installation location, there is an underlining issue. More than likely the leaks have done enough water damage to compromise the home. Sagging is never a good sign. If your gutters begin to sag from the water weight it is holding is too much, which indicates a clog or obstruction preventing the proper flow. Sagging gutters need to be replaced as soon as possible.
