When it comes to gutter damage, catching it early is the best thing for your home. So how do you know when it is time to call our team for gutter replacement? Check out these early warning signs so you know when to inspect your gutters for damages.

Improper Drainage

If rainwater is not draining away from your home, this is a clear indication your gutters are damaged. Water that does not drain properly will often do any of the following:

  • Gushing down the side of your home
  • Pooling at the base of your home
  • Splashing down onto your landscaping
  • Seeping onto your roof

Proper drainage is critical to the structural integrity of your whole home. The above drainage problems can lead to siding damage, foundation damage, destroyed landscaping and rotting / molding roofing materials.

Sagging Gutters

If you can visibly see that your gutter system is sagging, you should contact our contractors right away. Not only will sagging gutters eventually fail entirely, they can damage your soffit, fascia and roofing materials in the process.

Cracks in the System

If your gutter system begins to crack, have it inspected. Sometimes a small crack can be repaired easily. However, the longer you let a cracking gutter go, the worse the issue will become. Small cracks now will lead to major leaking later.
