Keeping an eye on the condition of your home’s gutter system is vital to prevent damage to your home’s foundation. If you’re unsure how old the gutters are in your home, it can be hard to determine whether they need to be replaced without knowing the signs that could be harming your home. 

If you’re questioning whether your home’s gutters need to be replaced here are some top signs you need it done:

  1. Corrosion and Rust: If you notice rust or corrosion on your home’s gutter system, it may just lead to these gutters breaking from the home leaving a mess that may cost more than if you would’ve just replaced them before.
  2. Holes or Cracks: Holes and cracks in your current gutter system allow water to seep through which can damage your roof, your home’s foundation, or the landscaping below. 
  3. Gutters that are Sagging: Sagging gutters can be overbearing in weight to your home causing them to come crashing down as it fills and overflows with water. This potentially could even cause mold to start forming in your gutters as well.
  4. Paint is Peeling: Peeling paint is a sign that your gutters are starting to corrode or rusting which as we know, can be harmful. Another cause of this paint being peeled is that your gutters are not draining water properly which can harm your home. 
  5. Water Damage to Your Home: This could be water damage both interior or exterior to your home. Watch for water stains on your wall or ceiling as this could be caused by your gutter system. 

Many homeowners look past these signs and ultimately pay the price. Don’t look past these potentially dangerous signs and take action today.
