5 Signs You Need to Replace Your Gutters

5 Signs You Need to Replace Your Gutters

April 05, 2018

A working gutter system can save your roof from structural problems and leaks. Eventually, however, you will see signs that your gutters need to be replaced. Read this post to learn about the red flags that mean it’s time to invest in new gutter installation.

Gutter Replacement

1. Water Stains Mean Water Damage

If you spot water stains in the basement or on the walls or ceiling, it means your property has sustained water damage. Without prompt repairs, this could lead to structural damage, which makes your house unsafe. Whether the cause is from debris in your gutters or inefficient water flow through your system, you will need to consider replacing your gutters.

2. Too Much Weight to Bear

Sometimes the amount of water and debris affecting your gutters is too much to bear. This can cause your gutters to start pulling away or bending at certain points. When this happens, you risk uncontrolled water flow into your home. This can destroy the seams between gutters.

At Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY, our solution is the installation of seamless gutters with the Snaplock™ system. This system is composed of a single piece of metal, eliminating seams and ensuring smooth water flow. With the SnapLock technology, the gutters are safely attached to your roof without penetrating the boards to avoid any possibility of leaks.

3. Pooling Is a Problem

If you see puddles by the base of your house or water piled up and standing still in the gutter, you have a problem. Standing water means the gutters aren’t channeled precipitation correctly. 

4. Cracking Under Pressure

Any crack, no matter the size, is problematic. If even tiny cracks are starting to form in your gutters, this is a sign that your system has endured too much wear and tear. The best solution is prompt gutter replacement.

5. Don’t Watch Paint Peel

Lastly, don’t wait for the paint in your gutters to peel off before deciding to replace the system. Not only does this create an eyesore that can drag down your curb appeal, it’s a sign that your gutters aren’t functioning properly, which puts your home at risk of water damage.
