After a rainy springtime, you may be looking at your home maintenance and upkeep budget for the remainder of the year. One of the housekeeping items that many homeowners push off until it’s too late is if their home needs new gutters. To understand whether or not your home needs new gutters, you first need to learn the telltale signs that you need to replace your home’s rain gutters.

When There’s Visible Damage to Your Gutters

It may sound self-explanatory, but the eyeball test is a simple and easy way to evaluate whether it’s time for new gutters. When your home’s gutters begin to wear out, they will display their age in the form of cracks, rust, and even open gaps or holes in the gutter system. If you can visibly see this kind of damage, then you may need to have a new gutter installed. For the best gutter installation in Broward County, look no further than K&B Seamless Gutters, Inc. If the gutters currently attached to your home have become a liability, then your first call needs to be to K&B Seamless Gutters. Don’t wait until your gutters literally fall off the side of your home or until your basement floods, or your landscape begins to erode to take action and address the problem with your gutters. With new gutter installation from K&B Seamless Gutters, you’ll actually save more money than if you attempted to repair the damage to your home’s foundation by keeping worn out gutters.

The System Is Growing Weaker

A common misconception is that the main purpose of gutters is to catch leaves. However, the actual main purpose of gutters is to properly divert water away from your home. Think about it, why would you need a gutter in beautiful South Florida where the leaves don’t fall during the autumn? The reason is because of how much rain Broward County and South Florida get! Between summer showers, tropical storms, and hurricanes, you need a stable and secure gutter system to divert the gallons of water that fall on your home. When your gutter system fails to seamlessly capture, direct and divert water, you’ve essentially only had narrow garbage can be nailed to the side of your home. By getting a new gutter installed by K&B Seamless Gutters, rainwater can be properly diverted, and it can support some fallen debris. 

By keeping damaged or neglected gutters, you’re only putting your home and your family at risk. Damaged gutters filled with debris can lead to various different problems, including cracked and rotting fascia and soffits. These problems can put your home’s exterior at risk, as well as leave your foundation open to shelling from rainwater. Leaky or damaged gutters can also damage your home’s exterior paint and repainting your house can cost thousands in unnecessary costs.
