Gutter Replacement Services In Houston, TX
Although you don’t think about them every day, your rain gutters are a crucial part of your home. They protect your exterior walls from water damage and paint stripping/fading. They also divert water away from your foundation and the ground underneath to keep your home from shifting or sinking.
If your gutter system is damaged or showing signs of wear, you need to act soon in order to prevent expensive damage to your home. You have two options when it comes to damaged gutters: repair or replacement.
Do I Need New Rain Gutters?
At Berger Home Services, we do think about rain gutters every day. We have seen gutter systems in every condition, from fresh out of the factory to barely hanging onto an older home. Our experienced technicians will inspect your roof gutters and downspouts for signs of wear and damage to determine whether your gutter system can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
Here are some of the signs you can look for to determine whether your rain gutters aren’t doing their job.
Water damage on your exterior walls, pools of water on the ground under your eaves, or spots of mold and mildew in dark areas under your roof are all signs that water is getting out of (or not getting into) your gutter system. Water damage can indicate a loose or uneven gutter, which can usually be repaired.
Gutters should be straight, level, and flush to the edge of your roof to allow water to flow smoothly into them. If your gutters are disconnected from the house or sagging in places, they can allow water to run down your walls or pool in the gutters, which can cause oxidation or further sagging. Sagging or hanging gutters may need to be partially replaced. If they deform the metal of other sections, you may need to replace your entire gutter system.
Holes in the gutter rail or gaps in the seams between gutter sections can allow water to run down your walls and collect on your foundation. It can also expose the metal of the gutters to oxidizing water and air. Our technicians can seal minor cracks or splits, but if you let them continue to grow, they will need to be replaced.
