H & S Roofing and Gutters has been serving the Charlotte NC area since 1939. Replacing your gutters before there is a severe problem is a very proactive step to protect your home. Without your gutters, water can run directly into the foundation of your home, cause leaks and even flooding. Your gutters should be cleaned at least once per year. When you clean you gutters, you should always visually inspect the gutter system and the areas around the gutters for signs of a problem. What are the signs that your gutters need to be replaced?
Here are the top 3 signs that your gutters may need to be replaced:
1) Gutter Leaks
Look for leaks in the corners of your gutters or even staining from overflows of water. If you have galvanized steel gutters, there may even be signs of rust. Rust is a sure sign that your gutters are beginning to wear out and will develop leaks in the near future if they are not leaking already.
2) Gutters Pulling Away
If you see that your gutters are starting to (or have begun) turning down toward the front, or pulling away from your home, that is a sure sign that your gutters are ready to be repaired and/or replaced.
3) Mold, Peeling Paint, and other signs
There are many additional signs of a gutter problem. Mold, peeling paint and wood rot on the outside of your home near the gutter system are instant signs that there may be a gutter leak.
