Should I Replace My Gutters?

How do your home’s gutters look? If they are old and starting to fall apart, or if you constantly run into problems, it’s probably time to replace them.

Perhaps you’re not sure whether you need new gutters or not. Talking to gutter professionals is the best way to determine if you need gutter repair or replacement, but there are some signs you can look out for on your own.

How to Tell if You Need Gutter Repair or Replacement

You most likely need new gutters for your home if your current ones:

  • Are loose or sagging
  • Constantly get clogged
  • Have a buildup of mildew or rust
  • Are peeling or flaking
  • Require more frequent—and more expensive—repairs

Also, if your gutters are getting up there in age, it may be a good idea to replace them. Not sure how old your gutters are? If you’ve lived in your home for 20 years and have never replaced your gutters, you could benefit from new gutters that provide better protection (the average lifespan of gutters is 25 – 30 years).

No matter what your situation is, Tidewater Insulators can correctly install new gutters that will prevent you from having to deal with costly repairs a few years down the road.

New gutters:

  • Can better protect your home from water damage
  • Help prevent erosion and other landscaping issues
  • Help protect masonry and siding
  • Look better and can help enhance the exterior of your home
  • Can help you save money in the long run (although gutter replacement may be more expensive upfront than a repair job, it’s a more cost-effective solution compared to repairing your old gutters for the third time)
