Signs You Need to Replace Your Gutters
The first things you need to know about gutter replacement are the symptoms that it is time to finally replace your gutters. Some signs are obvious, but others may be a bit subtle. Look for the following:
- Damaged gutters and downspouts
- Rust or physical damage to your gutters
- Multiple repairs in a short amount of time
- Puddles around the foundation of your home
If you notice any of the above, have one of our licensed roofers take a look at your gutters and determine whether you need repair or complete replacement.
Gutter Replacement Process
The first step in the gutter replacement process is to get an estimate. Most companies will provide an estimate for free and can help you choose a type of gutter that matches the character of your home. Your old gutters will be removed, and any repairs that need to be made will be completed. Then your new gutters will be installed. If your roof needs any additional repairs, the best time to make them is before your new gutters are installed.
