When to Replace Your Gutters
The average lifespan of a set of gutters will depend on a number of factors, including the quality of their installation, whether or not they are cleaned and maintained regularly, and the amount of leaves and rain they have to deal with. Generally speaking, a set of good quality gutters can be expected to last for 20 years or more. Many manufacturers offer warranties for at least as long.
Signs of aging gutters include leaking, cracking and peeling paint. If you notice your gutters sagging or pulling away from your home, it may be time to consider replacing them. Other things to look out for include water stains or related damage underneath your gutters, and pooling water or mildew around your home’s foundation.
The faster these issues are addressed, the less likelihood they have of causing expensive problems in the future.
