Sure Signs You Need to Replace Your Gutter

The gutter is a vital part of your home’s protection against the rain. It channels rainwater away from your home, protecting your siding, exterior wall, exterior doors, windows, fascia, and soffit from water damage. As gutters prevent rainwater from cascading down from your roof at the sides of your house, it can also prevent soil erosion around your property. Gutters serve to protect the landscapes around your home and even your home’s very foundation.

Like almost everything else in your home, your gutters too can wear out. If your worn-out gutter becomes dysfunctional, it will cause costly damage in your home. The question is, how are you going to go about with it?

To determine if you need new gutters, be sure to consult All States Home Improvement. As the top company when it comes to gutters in Wichita, KS, we know the signs to look for when it’s actually time to replace your gutters. These include:

  • Too many holes and rusty spots

Yes, some of these can be fixed with sealant and maybe a little flashing. When the damage is too significant, however, it’s time we replace your gutters.

  • Too many broken fasteners

These metal pieces are the only things holding the gutter to your roof. If a few fasteners are broken, then a quick fix is good enough. If the problem persists, however, the gutter itself may be the issue.

  • Loose gutters or gutters pulling away from the roof

This could be a minor problem or a major one. If the gutter has come loose because of a broken clip or a loose screw, then fixing it wouldn’t be a problem. Once you see it’s pulling away because of a severely rusting gutter or a rotted fascia, only a replacement can fix the problem.

  • Rots, peeling paint on your exterior walls or siding; water pooling around the house; basement floods

This is a clear indication that your gutter is failing and we’ll need to replace it as soon as possible. Otherwise, it can cause more problems around your home.
