Often times we arrive to a job to check on repairs and we realize the client is in need of a gutter installation instead. If your gutters are leaking at the seams it may be time to update to seamless gutters. If your gutters were installed with spike and ferrule, this means they are likely 20 years old and you could also potentially have rotting fascia.
A gutter system that is properly installed and maintained by regular gutter cleanings or maintenance or protected with gutter guards should last up to 30 years. Gutters that have not been properly maintained usually fail between 10 and 15 years.
