5 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Gutters

Aug 26, 2019 | Spouting

You may need to consider replacing your spouting and calling Greenawalt Roofing if you have any of the following issues:

1. A Growing Number of Holes, Rust Spots, and Cracks

Even though you can fix a few of these using a sealant and flashing, fixing a bunch of them is not possible. You need to get someone for gutter installation duty fast. There are no ifs or buts about it as replacing sealants and flashing is the only option.

2. A Bunch of Broken Fasteners

Fasteners, which are pieces of metal, fasten your gutter to your roof and keep it level. You can repair the broken fasteners, but if you keep running into problems even after you have fixed them, the problem lies with your gutters. Get them replaced.

3. Loose Screws or Nails on the Ground

Do you see any loose and falling screws or nails on the ground? If you do, replace them with new ones. The purpose of nails or screws is to attach the gutter to the fascia. If you keep finding them fallen on the ground, you are looking at a bigger problem, which is gutter wear and tear.

4. A Divided Gutter System

Together, the gutter system will work, but divided, it will not. For a gutter system to function properly, fasten its parts together. If they start to separate from each other, replacing your gutter is the only thing you can do.

5. Peeling Paint on the Outside of the House

If your gutters are pulling away from the roof of your home, it can ruin the appearance of your house from the outside, causing paint to peel off. If the paint has been peeling off for a while, it may time to invest in a new gutter system.
