Do You Need to Replace Your Gutters?

Gutter replacement might not be at the top of your home remodel list or budget. However, if you don’t replace or repair your gutters, your home budget could skyrocket with unwanted repair bills. When gutters don’t work well, this can lead to leaks and damage to the exterior of your home or even the interior via leaks, etc. Look for the following signs that your gutters could need replacement:

  • Accumulation of snow and ice inside your gutters for prolonged periods can cause serious damage to how your gutter system will perform moving forward. Ice Dams are the most severe and can cause homeowners thousands in unwanted repairs & damages. Gutter replacement
  • Water that pours over your gutters during a rain storm. This could mean that you need to work on gutter cleaning, clogging, or finding a gutterguard solution.
  • Rust-stained gutters or siding, or small leaks in the gutters.
  • Siding that has water damage, moss, or algae growth.
  • Unexplained roof or foundation leaks that may be caused by inadequate or incorrect water runoff & drainage.

homeowner-houseQuestion-1aShould You Repair or Replace?

If your gutters are old, warped, rusty, or causing problems with your roof, siding, and foundation, you need to determine whether you should repair or replace them. A newer gutter system that is simply clogged may not require full replacement. Instead, install a gutter guard system that helps water drain easily. If you experience winter backups and roof leaks due to ice dams, installing a gutter heating system can help the ice melt flow during every month of the year.

On the other hand, your gutters may truly require replacement. Old, saggy, warped, and rusty gutters need to be replaced with new gutter systems.  Use this opportunity to invest in a gutter system that will last for many years and reduce home maintenance. If you’re getting a new roof, that can also be a time to invest in an upgraded gutter system that will match and support the drainage of your roofing.

Types of New Gutter Systems

When you’re looking at gutter replacement, what are your options? You can look to DIY gutter replacement. This option is the least expensive and is often a favorite of homeowners who enjoy working around the home. However, your home drainage system is something that should be examined by a professional if at all possible.

Off-the-shelf gutters also need to be placed together to make gutters that fit your home. When you’re looking for quality, it’s often worth the cost to look to a contractor who’s able to install custom seamless gutters. Custom seamless systems with an effective gutter guard can be a worthwhile investment over time. They don’t warp or sag, and a gutter cover means that you won’t need to spend the money on gutter cleaning every year which over time saves you money and a lot of headaches associated with improper water runoff.

Keep Your Gutters Flowing

As you investigate gutter replacement, be sure to look at other support systems for you gutters as well. These include gutter cover or gutter guard systems that protect your gutters from incoming debris such as fall leaves. If you live in a cold climate, look to gutter heating systems as well, so that you can avoid accumulating snow and ice.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.

We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
