Top 5 Signs you need new Gutters 

Gutters are very essential because a working gutter system can help save your roof from severe structural leaks and damages. After time though, your gutters will eventually need to be replaced. In the Pacific Northwest it’s vital to have well working gutters due to the high amounts of rainfall on homes each year. Guardian Roofing and Gutter Installation is here to assist you on all your roofing and gutter needs in the Pacific Northwest. Here is a list on the top 5 signs you need to replace your gutters: 

  1. Water Stains that lead to Water Damage – Regularly check your home for water stains. You can look in the basement or on the walls or ceilings in your home. If you see any stains, then that means your home has faced some water damage. If these stains aren’t repaired after long, they could potentially lead to structural damage which could make your home unsafe. Whether this cause is from debris in your gutters or inefficient water flow through your system, you will need to consider replacing your gutters. If you have water stains, Guardian Roofing and Gutter Installation offers excellent gutter installation services that will ensure your home is the safest it can be.
  2.  Too Much Weight – Sometimes the surrounding amount of water and debris affects your gutters to the point where it’s too much to bear. This will cause your gutters to start pulling away or even bend at certain points. When this occurs, you can risk uncontrolled water flow into your home which can destroy the seams between the gutters. At Guardian Roofing and Gutter Installation we install seamless gutters equipped with our advanced gutter guard system. Our system eliminates any seams and ensures the smoothest water flow. With our services the gutters are safely attached to your roof without penetrating the boards to avoid any possibility of leaks.
  3. Pooling – Look out for any puddles by the base of your home or water piled up and standing still in the gutter. If you see any of these issues then there’s a problem. The standing water means the gutters aren’t channeled with the precipitation correctly and that you’re going to need new gutters. Our experts can come out to your house and give a professional maintenance check and install better gutters for your home. Especially with harsh rainfall coming, you definitely want your home to have the best gutters possible.
  4. Cracking Under Pressure – Be on the lookout for any crack, no matter the size. Any crack is problematic and even if the tiniest cracks are starting to form in your gutters, then it’s a sign that your system has endured too much wear and tear. The best solution here is to call our team at Guardian Roofing and get someone to replace your gutters. We will assess the situation with you and make sure your home’s gutters are all replaced and at the best they can be. 
  5. Peeling Paint = Lastly, it’s important not to wait for the paint in your gutters to peel off before deciding to replace the system. Not only does chipping paint result in an eye sore for the appeal of your home, it also means that your gutters aren’t functioning properly which puts your home at the risk of water damage. If you start seeing chipping paint around your home, give our experts a call at Guardian Roofing and Gutter Installation so we can access the damage and work on getting your home brand new gutters.
