5 Signs It's Time to Repair or Replace Your Gutters

At The Gutter Experts, we know that gutters play a crucial role in protecting your home from water damage. When gutters are working properly, they divert rainwater away from your roof and foundation.

But over time, gutters can become damaged and start to fail. If you notice any of these signs, it may be time to call The Gutter Experts for gutter repairs or replacement:

1. Sagging Gutters

Sagging is one of the most common gutter issues homeowners face. If your gutters are sagging or pulling away from the fascia board, it likely means the gutter hangers are bent or broken. Sagging gutters can no longer effectively catch water runoff, leading to spillover and potential leaks.

2. Leaking Seams and Cracks

Small cracks in gutters can turn into leaks, while separation at seams allows water to spill out. Consistent leaking and water overflow is a clear sign something is wrong with your gutters. They may be improperly sloped or have damage allowing water to escape.

3. Rust and Corrosion

Years of exposure to the elements causes gutters to eventually rust and corrode. You may first notice small holes and rust spots that get bigger over time. Streaking, peeling paint and large holes are other signs of advanced corrosion damage.

4. Pest Damage

Gutters easily attract pests like squirrels, raccoons, rats, birds and insects. Telltale signs include chewed holes, nesting materials and debris clogs from critter activity. Extensive pest damage often necessitates full gutter replacement.

5. Clogged Downspouts

Clogged downspouts prevent proper drainage, leading to overflowing gutters. Standing water pooling against your home’s foundation is a clear sign of a blockage. Downspout and gutter cleanings can help, but persistent clogs indicate a bigger problem.
