When Should I Replace My Gutters?

Gutter ReplacementGutters play an important role in protecting your home’s exterior structure by directing water, snow, and ice off the roof. The water that drains off the roof flows into the gutters and into downspouts that are directed away from your home. If your gutters are damaged, installed incorrectly, or clogged with debris, water doesn’t drain properly and causes damage to your roof boards, fascia, or structure.

But there is a solution: replacing old gutters with LeafGuard gutters will protect your home.

Signs of Gutter Damage

Make sure you keep an eye out for:

  • visible damage like dents, cuts, or holes
  • breaks in seams or joints, especially mitered corners

Additionally, ask yourself these questions:

  • Are the gutter fasteners properly attached?
  • Do the gutters slope toward the downspouts?
  • Are the downspouts connected securely to the gutters?
  • Do the downspouts need extensions?

In addition to visible signs of damage, gutter protection depends on keeping debris such as leaves, twigs, dirt, mud, and foreign objects out of the gutters. Clogged gutters won’t drain properly.

When replacing old gutters, seamless gutters are a great option. With the one-piece LeafGuard gutter, there are no seams or joints to leak. Our gutters come with a clog-free guarantee.

Our system also has oversized downspouts that allow water to drain faster and that help prevent clogs. Since our gutter system is 30% thicker than standard aluminum gutters, your home’s structure has added protection from the elements. Our gutters withstand water freezing and added weight from ice and will not detach or fall off.

LeafGuard is the only system to earn the Good Housekeeping seal for its many benefits over other systems. We use hidden, non-corrosive internal hangers, and our low-profile design will not affect re-roofing or your roof’s warranty.
