When is it Time to Replace Your Gutters?

LeafGuard Gutter InstallationAs a homeowner, your home is likely your biggest financial investment, and as such, it deserves the best protection available so that your money does not go to waste. One of the ways that your home is protected from the toll of nature is its roofing and gutter system. The gutter system drains rainwater away from your home’s roof, walls, and foundation, and prevents them from becoming damaged or even destroyed by moisture infiltration. If your gutter system is not in good condition, your home loses this valuable protection. Consider this information from our LeafGuard experts and let us help you replace your home’s gutters.

Drainage Problems
Improperly functioning gutters may develop a variety of drainage problems. One problem you might notice is standing water in your gutters. Standing water exposes your roof to excess moisture and gives insects such as mosquitoes a place to breed and spread diseases. Another common drainage problem with older gutters is leaking. You might notice dripping or even a waterfall flowing out of your gutters during or after a rain. This often indicates that the gutter has a hole, the seams are rusted, the gutter capacity is insufficient, or the connections to the downspouts are failing.

Unsightly Appearance
Older gutters can rust, pull away from your home, or chip and peel, distracting from your home’s appearance. This can lower your property value and make it difficult for you to rent out or sell your home. Replacing your gutters with a LeafGuard gutter system resolves all of these issues.

Gutter Damage
Regular wear and tear, exposure to the elements, or a severe storm can all cause damage to your home’s gutter system. Signs of damaged gutters include dents, holes, and gutters that are pulling away from the roof. Damaged gutters interfere with proper draining and can lead to even more damage to the foundation, walls, and roofing system. A prompt gutter replacement with a LeafGuard system eliminates the risk of costly home repairs.
