  • How can you tell if your gutters are failing?

One of the first indicators that your gutter system may be aged out is discoloration in the paint finish. It is more apparent in darker colored gutters, paint will begin to fade and even chip.

Over an extended period of time, gutters will start to pull away from the fascia and even start looking uneven when looking up at them. Most commonly this is from the winter months when the weight of ice and snow pull on them and the gutter hangers that are holding them in place.

Constant annoying drips will start to occur on the old seals in the gutter system. Most commonly on the ends and corners, occasionally between the elbows of the downspouts. This is due to the sealer drying out and failing as it expires.

Gutters are an often overlooked item on a home’s exterior, but it is a very important component that prevents damage to landscaping and the foundation of a house.
