Do You Have Sagging Gutters And Water Around The House? It's Time For Gutter Replacement

If you are having problems with water around your home and your roof's gutters are sagging, the problem could be caused by your gutters. If you have never had the gutters at your home replaced and you've never cleaned them, you'll want to call a roofing company right away.

Look into getting the old gutters replaced, and have the roof looked at. A damaged roof could be causing a variety of structural concerns for the home, so you want to get the issues addressed right away. Here is what you need to consider.

Roof Inspection

If water hasn't been draining through the gutters like it should be, it could be backing up around your roofing shingles and causing damage. Heavy gutters could also be pulling on the shingles around your roof. You want to have the roof inspected to make sure there is no water damage or rotting wood, pest problems or other issues. The roofing company can then look at the gutters and see what needs to be repaired or replaced.

Replacement with Seamless Options

There are seamless roofing options that are vinyl and easy to maintain that you can have installed. The molded piece is easy to clean and since there aren't any seams, you don't have to worry about twigs or leaves poking through cracks.

Screened Gutters

Screen gutters can clip on to stop any type of debris from falling in the gutters, so you don't have to worry about them getting filthy, clogged or weighed down. The screens also help keep out heavy pests like squirrels or even heavy birds that can weigh the gutters down and do damage to the roof.

When you want to clean the gutters you just easily remove the screens, spray them out with a hose, and then clean the gutters before putting the screens back on.

If the sagging gutters in front of your house look like an eyesore and you have pooling water around your home that is leaking in the basement or doing damage to the foundation, it's time to have your gutters replaced. There are many roofing companies that do gutter installation, and they will dispose of your old gutters for you. Make sure that there isn't any damage to the roof where the old gutters were attached, or because of water that could have accumulated around the roofing shingles or under the base of the roof.
