Why Should I Replace My Gutters?

Seamless gutters serve a significant purpose in the protection and well-being of your home. They:

  • Channel water away from your home.
  • Protect your home’s foundation and landscaping.
  • Help keep siding and masonry clean.
  • Help prevent erosion caused by water damage.
  • Protect entryways and porches.

Damaged gutters don’t function as they’re supposed to, which is why gutter repair and maintenance are essential. When gutters aren’t maintained properly and regularly or are left unfixed when damaged, they can cause serious problems for your home.

Gutter end caps, mitered corners and other parts of seamed gutters frequently leak. Sometimes gutters become loose, dislodged or can completely fall off. This requires repairing, rehanging or sometimes replacing the gutter section altogether.

Prevent Gutter Repairs With Gutter Guard Installation

Some of the most common gutter repair projects include:

  • Rehanging and re-nailing gutters that have loosened
  • Repairing or replacing damaged downspouts that have loosened or become disconnected from the gutter outlet
  • Adding and replacing extra parts as needed
  • Adjusting improperly pitched gutters (redirecting water toward the downspouts)
  • Sealing leaking gutter seams
  • Repairing and replacing fascia boards and soffits
  • Repairing ridge caps and flashing
  • Repairing copper gutters or sections

Although there’s nothing you can do to completely prevent the possibility of needing repairs, you can help reduce the frequency of repairs by installing gutter guards.

These gutter protection systems can help keep leaves and other debris out of your gutters and prevent clogging without hindering water flow.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some key considerations to keep in mind when installing gutters?

The quality of the materials and installation will determine your satisfaction with the result and the performance and longevity of your gutter system.

Choose a contractor with a solid reputation and ask for references, a written estimate and proof of licensing and insurance.

Other considerations include:

  • Warranty: Get a written warranty for materials and labor and ask whether the installation will impact the warranty on your roof.
  • Support: Gutter hangers should be spaced 18 to 24 inches apart and installed behind the roof flashing to prevent leakage between the gutters and the fascia board.
  • Pitch: The slope helps divert the water toward the downspouts and should be installed at a pitch of one-half inch for every 10 feet of gutter.
  • Sizing: Basic engineering is needed to ensure proper sizing based on factors including the home’s square footage, the complexity of your roofline and local weather.

What features or upgrades do you recommend for a new gutter system?

Oversized downspouts typically measure 3″ x 4″ in size, drain more efficiently and are less likely to clog than traditional downspouts sized at 2″ x 3.”

Weighing around 8 pounds per gallon, excess water can place undue stress on your gutters during heavy rainfall, leading to sagging, disconnection or damage to your home or gutters.

Oversized downspouts can enhance system performance by preventing backflow, increasing drainage speed and reducing the demand on your gutter system.

Which types of gutter materials will last the longest?

Gutters are made from a variety of materials, such as aluminum, copper, galvanized steel and vinyl. While copper is the longest-lasting, it’s also the most expensive and isn’t suitable for every budget.

With professional installation, copper and aluminum can last for decades, although aluminum is more affordable and is available in a variety of colors. Seamless aluminum gutters can be manufactured on-site and are available in several gauges for various applications and climates.
