How to Know When Your Gutters Need Repair or Replacement
What do you do when you notice your gutters aren’t ready for another tough Denver winter? Rain, sleet and snow have the ability to do damage to your gutters. It’s vital that your gutters are working in the optimal manner so you don’t run into any unwanted surprises.
Legacy Gutters offers the services you need when it comes to maintaining and repairing your gutters. with fabricated gutters. However, let’s first help you understand what warning signs signal the need for repair.
Gutter Danger Signs
Home foundation: Mildew or Pools of Water
This means your gutters may not be performing optimally. They are supposed to flow water away from the foundation. Costly repairs will result if you don’t fix the problem. A clog or serious gutter system defect might be the cause.
Splits and/or Cracks
A small crack or split always turns into a bigger issue as water continually wears away at it. If you notice cracks or splits in your gutters, don’t hesitate in taking corrective action. This leads to damaging your shingles, the foundation and the fascia boards.
Sagging Gutters/Gutters Pulling Away
This is an obvious sign that you have problems. The extra weight caused by gutters that are full of water will result in this issue. Something might be blocking water or the gutters aren’t draining correctly. Get it fixed before major damage results.
Underneath the Gutters: Water Marks/Damage
Check for this on a clear, sunny day. This signals that water is escaping the gutter and may lead to soffit and fascia board damage.
Peeling Paint and/or Orange Flecks
Those orange flecks mean rust is starting to materialize. This indicates that water is pooling. Peeling paint also helps with identifying that water isn’t running through the gutter system properly
