If your gutters are old or not performing the way you would like, it may be time to get a replacement. Here is how to know if you should replace your home’s gutters:

Signs Your Gutters Should Replaced

It is not always easy to tell if you need new gutters, but there are some warning signs you should be aware of. Here are a few things that may indicate that your gutters need to be replaced.

  • They are old – If your gutters are several decades old, they might need to be replaced. An older system is less effective and more prone to leaks.
  • You see visible damage or sagging – Obvious signs of damage, like rust, corrosion, and sagging, can be a strong indicator that your gutters need to be replaced.
  • They are frequently clogged or leaking – Gutters that are plagued with leaks and clogs likely need to be replaced. These issues show that they are not capable of performing like they should.

If you notice multiple of these issues, it is probably safe to say that a gutter replacement is worth the investment. But if you are still not sure, it can be worth having your gutters inspected by a trustworthy contractor like Exterior Source.
