Throughout the year, your home’s gutters protect your property from water damage and flooding whenever a big storm hits. Yes, your gutters can take a real beating, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be able to hold up forever.
Don’t let your home suffer from a broken or malfunctioning gutter. Pay attention to these signs as red flags that it’s time for you to hire Concord Roofing & Construction for a home saving gutter replacement.
Cracks in Your Gutter
One obvious sign that your gutter needs replacement is visible cracks and holes in the body of your gutter. In some cases, gutter repair is an option for this problem. However, if you notice several holes and large cracks throughout the gutter, the more reliable option for your home is to simply get it replaced.
Constant Replacement of Nails and Screws
If you find that you’re constantly picking up hardware below your gutter, there is an issue at hand. Yes, you can replace nails and screws but constantly having to do so is a sign of gutter wear and that it’s time for a replacement.
Your Gutter and Roof Are Growing Distant
Your gutter and roof should be best friends. However, if you’re looking up and see that your fasteners just don’t seem to be getting the job done, there is definitely an irreparable problem with your gutter.
When this space continues to grow and grow, it’s a sign that the fascia boards on your roof are rotted. By now, your gutter is starting to show signs of sagging without your roofline’s support, and getting a gutter replacement is the quickest way to resolve the issue.
Your Home’s Paint is Peeling
When a gutter needs to be replaced, it stops getting the job done for your home. Your gutter is meant to protect your home from the natural elements of rain and hail. However, if a replacement is ignored and cracks or holes persist, your home could begin to face some serious damage. Signs that your gutter is working conversely to its purpose is paint peeling or metallic rust around your home’s exterior.
Mildew in the Attic
Remember, pooling water on the ground isn’t the only sign that there’s a problem with your gutter. If your gutters don’t drain properly, damage like water stains and mildew can form within your attic. Unfortunately, these issues lead to even larger home problems like mold in the home or large leaks in your roof.
Periodically, schedule a roof inspection and have your attic checked for any underlying signs of an early roof problem caused by a faulty gutter.
