As the length of time a gutter will last depends on many varying factors, we have put together some signs to watch out for:
Small cracks will turn into big cracks, so it’s better to catch them before they do any serious damage. Leaving small cracks unattended can result in further damage to your gutter as well as your fascia boards, the shingles and the foundation. Don’t let a mole turn into a mountain.
Unless your gutter is old, peeling paint or a rust colour on your gutter is usually a sign that water is spending too long unmoved in your gutter. This means the gutter isn’t doing its job and may be a sign of cracks.
If you see water around your home then your gutters may be defunct. This could be due to various reasons and can cause serious, costly damage to your foundation.
