How to Know When to Replace Gutters

Our team at DryTech Exterior has over 15 years of experience and has worked on over 6,000 homes in the Dayton Ohio area. We can’t emphasize enough the important role your home’s gutters play in protecting your home from water damage. They channel water away from your roof and foundation and help prevent leaks and flooding in your basement or crawl space. While gutters are built to last, they will eventually need to be replaced.

Here are four signs that its time to replace your gutters:

Your gutters are sagging or pulling away from your roof

This is usually a sign that your gutters are full of debris and water. The weight of the water and debris can cause your gutters to sag or even pull away from your roof.

Water is spilling over the sides of your gutters

If your gutters are full of debris, the water will spill over the sides instead of being channeled away from your home. This can lead to water damage on your siding, windows, and doors.

Your gutters are rusting

If your gutters are made of metal, they will eventually rust. This can cause leaks and allow water to damage your home’s foundation.

You see cracks or holes in your gutters

Cracks and holes can allow water to leak into your home or cause rusting. Either way, they need to be repaired or replaced to protect your home.
