Home Improvement Experts on Whether You Need Gutter Repair or Replacement, Waterbury, Connecticut

Age and weathering can take a toll on your home’s gutters, causing them to sag or look dingy. If you're planning a home improvement project to address these issues, it’s essential to figure out the extent of the problem first. This will help you determine whether you need minor repairs or full replacements for your existing gutters. Read on to learn about some common issues.

3 Signs You Need a Home Improvement Project for Your Gutters

1. Water Accumulation Around Foundation Walls

The primary purpose of a gutter is to provide a leak-proof channel for water to flow away from your home’s foundation. However, if you notice a significant amount of water pooled around the base of your home, it’s time to get the gutters inspected. In most cases, this problem occurs due to a clog in the guttering system, but it can also indicate a need for significant overhauls.

Home Improvement2. Peeling Gutter Paint

Paint peeling off old gutters can be expected, but if it’s coming off a new installation, be sure to have it checked for drainage issues. The appearance of corrosion is an obvious sign that the gutters are unable to drain water properly. Replacing the system may help if it’s new enough to be under warranty.

3. Sagging Gutters

Drainage problems can also add extra weight to the gutters and cause them to sag under pressure. If this problem is dealt with quickly, you can have it repaired by a local home improvement company. But gutters that have sagged or pulled away from your home’s walls can only be addressed with complete replacement services. Consulting a contractor can help you determine the scope of the problem and the right approach to fixing it.
