How do I know if my gutter need to be replaced?
You should periodically check your gutters. When you clean out your gutters after the leaves fall, you should also check the integrity of each section, making sure that the sections are loose. You should check that gutters aren’t rusted or cracked. If gutters or downspouts are bent or floppy, this is another indication that they are worn past their usefulness. Mold can also form on the outside of your home where gutters leak, even slowly.
You want to be sure that you replace everything that is defective because fixing water damage to your roof or foundation is much more expensive. You should replace your gutters before any of the seasons that will result in water collecting and possibly causing damage. Perhaps before winter or possible after the fall. Of course, the best time to replace a gutter is simply when that gutter is no longer functional. In any case, Dan Dan the Gutterman is here to help!
