Your gutters perform an important job in protecting your home by diverting water away from your roof and foundation. Just like any part of your home, however, they eventually wear down due to chronic exposure to the elements. For this reason, it’s essential to spot and determine early signs of problems with the system to keep them from turning into major issues.
How can you tell if your gutters are past their prime? Carolina Gutter Helmet and More, your gutter protection expert, discuss further:
Sharp debris, fluctuating temperatures, and harsh weather conditions can do a number on your gutters. While large cracks are clear signs that you need to replace them, small cracks only tend to become visible when a storm hits your area. In fact, they can cause as much water damage as larger ones and grow worse over time.
Leaves, twigs, dirt, and debris that build up in your gutters can weigh them down and cause them to detach from the fascia board. This makes the system unsafe, as it may collapse at any time. Make sure to replace it with a new one immediately.
To avoid this red flag, it’s best to invest in quality gutter guards like Gutter Helmet®. It’s designed to keep your gutters free-flowing by blocking leaves, twigs and other debris from the system. By preventing clogs, you can reduce the risks of sagging and other issues.
If your basement tends to become flooded during heavy downpours, it’s likely your gutters are not doing their job. Seek the help of a reliable contractor like us to check your gutter’s condition. If we see that they have several cracks, holes, or other signs of deterioration, we may recommend investing in new gutters.
