Gutters are an essential part of a strong working roofing system. Without gutters, the water can pool near the foundation, creating a huge disaster in the future. It is best to make sure the gutters are working properly with regular maintenance and removal of excess debris.
In Houston, expect to pay between $280 to $6,500 depending on the material used, the size of the home, and the complexity of the installation. It is wise to contact Beck Roofing & Restoration and speak with a trusted skilled specialist about obtaining new gutters. They can explore the options with you and schedule a time to inspect your current gutter system.
There are several kinds of gutter systems to choose from.
Regardless of which type of gutter system you lean toward, always consider gutter guards as extra protection.
What are some signs of needing new gutters?
Cracks, splits, or separated gutters
Many times, these happen with sectional gutter systems or older systems that need replacing. Sectional gutter systems are assembled with fasteners and can separate or deteriorate with time. Even a small crack or split will grow over time, preventing the gutter from properly doing its intended job. This gives an ideal time to upgrade to either a seamless or k-style gutter system.
Peeling paint or rust
Most gutters are painted or coated to protect them from the weather. When you begin to notice peeling paint, that is an indication that rust is right around the corner. Rust is an enemy of gutters as the weakened spots soon allow water to drip through. Be sure to replace your gutter system when you notice rust forming.
Pulling away from the roof
There are two main reasons why your gutter could be pulling away from the roofing system. Perhaps there is too much buildup in the gutters, preventing the water to flow freely. This buildup could be from leaves, small branches, or nesting material for birds and mice. The weight of the debris and water could be too heavy for your gutters to hold, and unfortunately, they begin to pull away from the roof.
A second reason for pulling away could be that the brackets and fasteners have just worn out. This is an indication that the system has aged, and it is time to replace it before damage to your roof will occur.
This unfortunate event can occur because the gutter system is not transferring the water away from the home far enough. There is potential for water to overflow after a great deal of rain, causing the water to seep into your foundation and eventually your basement.
