3 Signs It is Time for Gutter Replacement
- Water is not running off of the roof and down to the ground correctly. The main reason to have gutters at all is to make sure water does not pool on the roof, cascade over the edge, or end up places where it does not belong.If the gutter tilts up at the edge instead of slightly down, water can get trapped along the roof line and cause considerable damage and leaks. If the gutter and downspout are not angled correctly, water may flow over the edge onto passers-by and employees coming to work. It the bottom of the gutter is not pointed properly toward a drainage zone, the water can ruin landscaping, swamp paths, and even undermine the building’s foundation.
- Missing or damaged parts. Broken gutters and downspouts obviously need replacement, but brackets, connectors, and gutter shields can cause problems as well. All of these gutter repair and installation parts serve important purposes and keep the water flowing in the right direction.Besides the loss of parts due to system age, severe weather events, and other factors, they can become damaged over time by branches falling on them and parts wearing out from shifting in the wind. Rust is another issue to watch for.
- Old gutters no longer suit a commercial building redesign. Every aspect of the commercial building used to house one or more companies reflects upon those companies. If the property owner takes the time and considerable expense to refinish or redesign the building, gutter replacement should be a part of that. With the many styles and colors offered, every location’s style can find its match.
