Gutters are a very important part of your roofing system. They direct water away from your home and prevent water damage to your foundation, as well as the interior and exterior of your home. Neglected gutters can lead to very costly repairs. Aluminum gutters last on average 20 years but ice damming, extreme weather, and natural occurrences (think tree limbs!) can impact that timeframe. So how do you know that you need new gutters?
- Your gutters are pulling away from the house
- They slope in the wrong direction
- There are visible cracks, splits, or holes in the gutters
- Water is pooling by the foundation
