When Should Your Gutters be Replaced?
Gutter Replacement Sunshine Coast
Your gutters might not be obvious at first glance but they’re a super important part of your roof and this is most obvious when it rains (especially heavily), ensuring all that water doesn’t just run off down the side of your house, gutters funnel the water down a spout and then into your drainage system. When they get old they can get clogged easily, cracked (and leaking), or even displaced allowing water to flow where it should be. If you notice water flooding down off your roof in certain areas during rain or leaking gutters it might be time to consider replacing your gutters. The most common reason to do so are….
1 – Old & Worn Out – Some gutter systems are just beyond repair due to the age and need to be replaced. They may have rust holes and be falling off in certain areas.
2 – Damaged Or Leaking – A gutter system doesn’t need to be old and worn out to need replacing, some systems may have been damaged for whatever reason or may have chronic leaking or clog easily and overflow during heavy rains and you may need something that can handle the weather better.
3 – Sagging Gutters – If your gutters are sagging it likely means they’re being over burdened with water and debris and are not functioning properly. This may be due to blocked drainage, or theyve moved position and are no longer draining water in the right direction and water starts to pool in them.
