Your gutters play an important role in keeping your home safe from all sorts of damage caused by uncontrolled rainwater. When gutters and downspouts become clogged, water can seep underneath the roof deck and damage the structure from the inside, necessitating potentially costly repairs from a professional roofing contractor. The water can also get into the siding, staining the finish at best and softening up the drywall at worst. Lastly, without a properly functioning drainage system, rainwater can also flood the basement and weaken your foundation.
Keeping your gutters in good condition is of the utmost importance, and replacing faulty parts must be done quickly. But how do you know if it’s time to get new gutters? Let our expert contractors at TJ Exteriors explain the signs that you may be due for a replacement.
