Here at Batson’s Gutter Systems, we know that you care about your home, and we want to help you take care of it. When it comes to protecting your home from damage, your gutters play an important role, as they direct rainwater away from your home’s exterior walls and foundation so that it can’t seep into these structures and cause problems. Of course, like everything else, your gutters will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. In this article, our team will go over a few things to look out for in order to tell when you need gutter replacement.
- Cracks- If your gutters have cracked or split at all, you should start thinking about gutter replacement. Once your gutters develop a crack, the water flowing through them will only make it wider over time, and the water that leaks out can do real damage to the surrounding structure.
- Peeling Paint- Another sign that you may need gutter replacement services in the near future is peeling paint. The paint on your gutters is designed to stand up to severe wear and tear, and any peeling flakes or spots of rust are signs of an underlying problem. If you notice your gutters starting to rust or the paint starting to flake off, we encourage you to give our team a call to have them checked out.
- Sagging- A third indicator that you may need gutter replacement soon is the gutters starting to sag, or even to pull away from your home. If this happens, you should call our team right away to get the problem taken care of.
