The gutters and downspouts on your home probably don’t capture much of your attention.
Yet, they faithfully redirect water away from your house during every storm.
While a quality gutter system can last for decades, there eventually comes a point when it is time to think about its replacement.
If you’re on the fence about putting in new gutters, then it is likely because your current system has managed to protect your home from costly water damage up to this point.
Planning for a new gutter system helps you to continue protecting your property’s structural integrity while also enjoying these additional benefits.
Avoid Worrying About Cracks
Many gutter systems are made with seams that can eventually come apart over time.
Larger cracks might be visible with the naked eye.
Smaller ones might not reveal themselves until a major storm comes along.
Cracks in a gutter system allow water to leak on to parts of your home where you don’t want moisture accumulating.
When you explore replacing the current gutters, consider upgrading to newer styles.
Seamless gutter systems offer these benefits that make installing them worth it:
- Stop cracks in their tracks
- Improve water flow
- Enhance your property’s aesthetics
Prevent Property Damage
Even a small breach in the system can lead to gallons of water pouring down and around your house.
At first, you might not notice this happening, since the leak is likely to occur while it is actively raining.
However, water damage will eventually begin to show itself in time.
New gutters help you feel confident that your home is protected.
Too much moisture on the exterior sides of your house can lead to these costly issues:
- Damaged siding
- Mold and mildew growth
- Pest infestations
- Foundation problems
Upgrade the Curb Appeal
Have you ever driven by a house and noticed saggy gutters?
Old and worn out gutter systems canmake your house look much older than its age, and allowing the ones on your property to crack and sag makes it look like you don’t care about your property.
Replacing an ugly gutter system can give your house an instant face lift.
While you’re at it, you can also consider these ways to improve the curb appeal by changing how the gutters look.
- Switch to a new shape of gutter troughs
- Change to a different material
- Choose a new color for the gutter system
Most homeowners need to plan for gutter cleaning several times a year. But, your system might be prone to clogs that cause water to flow over the top between cleanings.
Eliminate Maintenance Challenges
Most homeowners need to plan for gutter cleaning several times a year.
But, your system might be prone to clogs that cause water to flow over the top between cleanings.
Covered gutter systems have guards that go across the top to block out leaves, and they might be an option that you want to consider as an upgrade during the replacement project.
Here are a few signs to look for that indicate that you might be happier with a covered system:
- Your property is surrounded by mature trees
- You live in a windy climate
- Your current system frequently clogs
