If you’ve had your rain gutters for more than 20 to 30 years, then it’s probably time to replace them—otherwise, you may be able to get by with repairs. To determine whether your old or dysfunctional gutters are in need of repair or replacement, the experts at Amakua Rain Gutters in Wahiawa, HI, recommend scheduling an inspection with a professional. By doing so, they’ll be able to tell you exactly what the problem is and how they can fix it.
When something is wrong with a section of your gutters and not the entire gutter system, then a contracting company can usually make any necessary repairs without having to install a new system. This is especially true when your downspouts aren’t draining properly or your gutters are becoming detached from the side of your structure. After heavy rains and strong winds, it’s not atypical in Hawaii to need gutter repairs to get your drainage system back to normal.
Usually, gutter systems will last for multiple decades; however, when homeowners and businesses fail to clean them out and conduct routine maintenance, they tend to only last for a fraction of the time. In this case, it will be necessary to remove your system and replace it with new gutters. Of course, if you originally had low quality, inexpensive gutters installed on your home, then the chances are higher that you’ll need replacements much sooner than 20 or 30 years.
Maintaining your gutter system will keep rainwater off your structure and protect your building from mold, pests and property damage. To schedule an appointment with Amakua Rain Gutters, call (808) 258-6994 or visit them online today.
