How often should your gutter system be replaced?


How often should your gutter system be replaced?

Your gutters, you may not realize, play a critical role in protecting your home from water damage. Although a gutter system is not the most expensive component of a roofing system, it can save you money on roof repairs and even protect the structural integrity of your home by diverting excess water away from the foundation.

Gutter System

Most gutter systems, such as galvanized steel and aluminum, have a 20-year life expectancy, while copper gutter systems can last up to 50 years if properly maintained. However, this does not negate the fact that they will eventually need to be replaced, and you will most likely have to do so at least once in your lifetime. We also provide Soffit Replacement in Denver at an affordable price.

When to repair vs. When to repair

Gutter and downspout systems are the unsung heroes of any structure. They work in tandem with your roofing system to prevent a slew of water-related issues that are not only unsightly but can also reduce your home’s curb appeal and value.

Due to the fact that most gutters are sold in sections, damage frequently occurs at the seams where two sections meet. Because these are the most vulnerable parts of your gutter system, it’s common for cracks or leaks to appear here. Fortunately, a quick call to your local roof repair company can easily repair the damaged section without replacing the entire system.

Even the highest-quality gutter systems, however, cannot be expected to last indefinitely. If the damage to your gutters is too extensive, with multiple cracks and holes, or if they have become so compromised that nails and fasteners can no longer hold them in place, it is best to replace them entirely.
