How Long Do Gutters Last?

Are you more and more frequently experiencing problems with your gutters? If so, it could be an indication that they are getting up there in age and need to be replaced soon.

Typically, gutters should last at least 20 years. The average lifespan is 25 – 30 years, but many gutter systems can last longer than this. If you think your gutters may be around 10 or 15 years old and you’ve never gotten a professional inspection because there have been no problems, it’s a good idea to get one. There may be a minor issue you haven’t detected that could lead to major problems if left unfixed.

You should clean your gutters—or better, have a professional come out and clean them—at least twice a year, once in the fall after the leaves have fallen and then again in the spring (around April). If you live in an area with a lot of trees, you may want to clean them more often than that.

How can you ensure your gutters last as long as possible?

To make sure your gutters last as long as possible, follow these tips from the pros:

  • Clean and maintain them on a regular basis
  • Don’t bleach them when you power wash them
  • Fix any problem, no matter how seemingly small and insignificant, right away
  • Have a good local gutter company you can call
