Neglecting to care for your home’s gutter could lead to serious damage – and greater financial cost – such as:
- Foundation issues and leaks into the basement
- Rotting fascia (the horizontal wooden board which caps the end of the rafters that hold the rain gutter)
- Leaky roof (and plenty of internal water damage)
- Landscape erosion
- Insect breeding grounds – including those dreaded mosquitos!
Here are some common signs that your house may need new gutters:
There Is Water Damage Underneath the Gutters
If you are checking your gutters on an annual basis, you will become familiar with how your gutters look, and therefore will easily recognize when something doesn’t look right. If you see water stains beneath your gutters, that’s a sign that they are leaking or have become clogged and water is spilling over the edge. This is a must-fix as water damage can rot the fascia and cause even more damage.
There Is Mildew at the Base of Your House
Gutters channel water to the downspouts which are curved at the bottom to direct water away from the base of the house. If your gutters are clogged, leaking or otherwise defective, then the water overflows off the roof, forms a pool on the ground within a few feet of the building and saturates the foundation of your house. When this happens, mildew, mold or rot forms, causing even more structural damage to your home.
There Is Rust, Cracks or Sagging on the Gutters
If you see that your gutter is sagging or you notice any cracks or rust on it, then it’s time to replace your gutters. If the crack or sag is minor, it may be tempting to put off any repairs, but small cracks in inclement weather will quickly turn to big cracks. As with clogs, any cracks, sagging or rust will prevent the gutters from working efficiently and eventually lead to leaks, which cause even more damage to the roof, siding, foundation and interior of your house.
