Gutters Play a Crucial Role in Protecting Your HomeGutters play a crucial role in protecting your home. They direct rainwater and melting snow away from your house, preventing damage to your foundation and your home’s exterior. Gutters that are clogged, misaligned, or damaged cannot work effectively, which can lead to problems related to moisture throughout your house and property.

Here are some signs that it’s time to replace your gutters:
- Your gutters are sagging, pulling away from the house, hanging down, or leaning more towards the front, or your seamed gutters are loose, coming apart at the seams, or too worn to be reattached.
- Your gutters are rusted, bent, dented, broken, or cracked beyond repair.
- There are gaps between the gutter connections or between the gutters and the fascia boards to which they are attached.
- There are nails or broken fasteners that have fallen from loose gutters to the ground.
- There is standing water in your gutters.
- Water is leaking into the basement of your house.
- Water that is flowing toward your foundation instead of being diverted away from it is causing cracks in the foundation.
- Moisture from leaking gutters is leading to the growth of mold in your house’s basement, foundation, or façade.
- The paint on your house is peeling, wood behind the gutters is corroding, or there are rust stains on the house. This could be due to water backsplashing or overflowing and running down the backs of the gutters and along the house. This is a sign that your gutters are worn, clogged, or misaligned.
- When it rains, you hear water smacking to the ground. This means the water is pouring over the sides of the gutters, which is a sign that they are misaligned or blocked.
- There are puddles of water around your home after it rains.
- Water channels are forming in your landscaping, or your landscaping is washing out or eroding.
If you are experiencing any of these problems, now is the time to replace your gutters. Don’t wait until heavy winter snow comes. When it melts, the water can cause your gutters to overflow, which can result in significant damage to your home.
