Signs You Need New Rain Gutters
Knowing when to replace gutters is essential when you factor in gutter replacement costs. Berger Home Services has seen gutter systems in every condition possible. Our experienced technicians will start by inspecting your roof gutters and downspouts for signs of wear and damage to determine whether your gutter system can be repaired or should be replaced. The following are some of the signs to look for to determine whether your rain gutters are doing their job or not:
- Visible Water Damage – Signs that water is getting out of or not getting into your gutter system include water damage on your exterior walls, sports of mold or mildew in dark areas under your roof, and pools of water on the ground under your eaves. Water damage can be a sign of a loose or uneven gutter, which can often be repaired.
- Hanging or Sagging Gutters – Your gutters should be straight, level, and flush to the edge of your room to allow water to flow into them smoothly. If your gutters become disconnected from your house or sag in places, water can run down your walls or pool in the gutters, causing further sagging or oxidation. Hanging or sagging gutters may require a partial or complete replacement.
- Splits or Cracks in Gutter System – Water can run down your walls and collect on your foundation due to holes in the gutter rail or gaps in the seams between gutter sections. Metal can be exposed to oxidizing water and air. Allow our technicians to seal minor splits or cracks before they grow and require replacing.

The Benefits of Gutter Replacement Services
Some homeowners put off having their gutters replaced, but this is not advised. Your gutters channel water away from your home to protect it from water damage and maintain its structural integrity. While having your gutters replaced may be a bit of an investment, you will save money by avoiding costly water damage in the future. In addition to saving money, another benefit of having your gutters replaced is maintaining a healthier home. Mold and mildew will not grow from leaky gutters and moisture seeping into your walls or basement. New gutters can help family members who suffer from allergy or asthma problems. New gutters can also prevent dirt and debris from building up and clogging your gutters.
