Insurance Guidance

We walk you through the insurance process

If you’re like most people, you don’t think too much about your gutters. You know they’re up there, funneling rain and snow melt away from your roof – and maybe you even clean them occasionally. 

But how can you tell if you need gutter repair or gutter replacement?

Why Do You Need Working Gutters?

Gutters are open at the top so they can catch rainwater and melted snow from your roof. 

When water flows in, the gutters redirect it so that it doesn’t soak into the wooden parts of your house – and they push it away from your home’s foundation, too.

Sometimes things go wrong, though. 

When your gutters aren’t working properly, either because they’ve been damaged or because they were improperly installed, they can allow water to ruin just about any part of your home.

Modern homes are especially vulnerable to water damage. That’s because they’re designed to conserve energy – and at the same time, they can trap moisture. 

Water can seep into your roofing materials or your roof’s fascia (the board fastened at the point where your roof meets the outer walls of your house), causing tremendous amounts of damage.

How to Tell if Your Gutters Are Damaged 

A visual inspection can tell you a lot about the condition of your gutters. 

You don’t have to climb up on your roof to look for these five signs your gutters are damaged:

  • Peeling paint
  • Rust spots
  • Cracks or splits
  • Saggy appearance
  • Pools of water or mildew growth around your foundation

Here’s a closer look at each.

Peeling Paint

Gutter paint is designed to be tough – it’s made to withstand all kinds of weather and frequent exposure to water. If the paint on your gutters is flaking off or peeling, it’s a bad sign; that means the protective barrier between the water and the metal is eroding away.

Likewise, if you see paint peeling on your home’s fascia or anywhere beneath the gutters, it could signal that your gutters aren’t doing their jobs.

Rust Spots

Water causes rust, especially if it’s present for a long time. Rust can erode the metal in a gutter system very badly over time. When that happens, the system can’t funnel water away from your home – but the water still has to go somewhere. It’ll flow out of the holes the rust has created, and often, that results in it running down the side of your house or pooling near your foundation.

Cracks or Splits

Small cracks in your gutters probably don’t seem like a big deal, but little cracks only grow. The same principle applies to gutters as applies to roads: when water gets inside a pothole and freezes, it expands. That expansion causes the pothole to expand, and before you know it, you’re dealing with a massive crater. 

When it comes to gutters, the water doesn’t have to freeze in small cracks. A continuous or frequent flow can cause a crack to become larger – and so can large amounts of water pouring through your gutters at once.

Saggy Appearance

Older gutters (and those that weren’t installed properly) can sag away from your house. That means they’re not where they need to be to catch the water flowing off your roof, or that they’re so full of water and debris that they’re too heavy to stay in place. While that’s something you may be able to head off with proper maintenance, such as cleaning your gutters regularly (and especially after storms), once the damage is done, it’s tough to repair on your own. You may need to hire a home roofing company like Elevated Roofing to perform the repairs for you.

Pools of Water or Mildew Growth Around Your Foundation

If there’s water on the ground near your foundation, look up – did it come from your gutters? Your gutters are supposed to funnel away all the water that collects on your roof. The output end of the gutter should point away from your home, keeping water away from your foundation. When water seeps into your foundation, you have much bigger problems than gutters; you could be facing heavy-duty repairs that cost a pretty penny.

Why Choose Us for Your Gutter Repair Needs?

When Should I Hire a Roofing Company for Gutter Replacement?

When you observe significant damage, you probably need gutter replacement. Because gutters are typically made from thin metal, sometimes the damage is too extensive – and repairing them wouldn’t make sense. In some cases, replacing your whole gutter system is the best idea. And even better, replacing a gutter system can add value to your home while saving you thousands in repair costs down the road.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace Gutters?

Gutter Replacement: What to Remember When You Choose

When you’re choosing what type of system to install on your home or business, you need to consider shape, size and seams.

Shape

There are two main gutter shapes: Half-round and K-style. These two shapes drain equal amounts of water, so really, it’s more about aesthetics. Half-round gutters have a U shape, and they’re more traditional. K-style gutters do the same job, but the outside edge looks like the top of the letter K. You can talk to your local roofing contractor to find out what’s going to be best for your home.

Size 

Gutter size refers to the measurement of the top opening, the length and width of the downspout, and thickness. Most commonly, gutters have 5-inch to 6-inch top openings (although smaller gutters are available). Downspouts are usually 2 inches by 3 inches or 3 inches by 4 inches, and 3 to 4 inches in diameter.

Seams 

Gutters can be sectional or seamless. Sectional gutters need sealant at each seam to prevent leakage, but that’s not an issue with seamless gutters.

Regular roof inspections and maintenance are crucial to ensure the longevity of your roof and to identify and address any potential issues early on. It is recommended to inspect your roof at least twice a year, ideally in the spring and fall. Additionally, after severe weather events like storms or heavy snowfall, it's essential to conduct an inspection to check for any damage.

There are several signs that indicate your roof may need repair or replacement: Leaks or water stains on the ceiling and walls. Missing, cracked, or curled shingles. Excessive granule loss from asphalt shingles. Sagging or dipping areas on the roof. Visible mold, algae, or moss growth. Excessive wear and tear or signs of aging.

The decision to repair or replace your roof depends on the extent of the damage, the age of the roof, and the overall condition. Minor issues, such as isolated leaks or a few damaged shingles, can often be repaired. However, if the damage is extensive, the roof is nearing the end of its lifespan, or there are recurring issues, it may be more cost-effective to invest in a roof replacement.

Based in Frisco, TX, we provide local roofing services throughout the North Dallas, Dallas and Fort Worth areas. We will also cross state lines to help our neighbors after severe or catastrophic weather events. A few of the areas we service, include: Dallas, Frisco, Plano, McKinney, Carrollton, Little Elm, Allen, Lewisville, Richardson, Grapevine, Arlington, Las Colinas, Fort Worth ...and more!
