Answers:

Why do I need gutters?

  1. Clogged or leaky gutters are one of the biggest causes of basement leaks, mold and other foundation problems, standing water in gutters is one of the common places mosquitos breed.
  2. Damaged fascia, soffit, or outside wall. Leaky gutters can cause damage to a house's structural integrity by allowing water to damage the fascia, soffit, or wood framing of the house.
  3. Landscape washout. Many homeowners have experienced damaged landscaping caused by gutter problems.
  4. Undermined driveways, patios, and walkways. Excess water flowing into the ground near the house can erode the dirt directly beneath driveways, patios, and walkways. As the dirt is washed away, the driveway, patio, or walkway is no longer fully supported and can settle, crack, or even collapse. If you have already experienced this type of damage, fix the gutter or downspout problem before replacing or repairing the driveway, patio, or walkway.

     

When should I replace my gutters?
If you have steel or vinyl gutters, you will need to replace them eventually. How you tolerate maintenance on you home will determine when you should replace the gutter.
If you're the kind of person who doesn't want to be bothered with the time and money repairs demand, you should replace your gutters at the first signs of rust. Rust will often show up as little orange speckles that show through the paint, rusty colored stains at the end of the downspouts, or at gutter seams that are separated and leaking. Gutters rust from the inside out. When they begin to show rusting on the outside, the inside is rusting through. Often, however, because of standing water, the gutter may need to be repaired in just one or two areas.
