Signs That You Need to Replace Gutters
Your home’s gutter system is an important part of its preventative maintenance. However, when the system breaks down, the damage that results is frequently overlooked. There are some signs that you can be on the lookout for though, that will let you know you that it’s time to replace your gutters to avoid costly repairs later. These signs include:
- Slow or improper drainage
- Sagging, rusted, bent, hanging, or missing gutter system components

- Gutters are loose or pulling apart
- Damaged or rotting roofing material

- Water draining or leaking into the basement
- Growth of mold or mildew due to increased moisture
- Cracking in the foundation seals because of moisture or water damage
- Water flowing towards the home instead of away from it
- Standing water, puddles or channels in the landscape
Maintaining and repairing your home’s gutter system will significantly reduce water damage to the structure and the landscape around it.
