Old gutters is a relative term, but it’s a really good indication your gutters are old if they are:
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.
Early detection of gutter problems can prevent costly damage. If water overflows from your gutters during rain or rust and corrosion are visible, your gutters may be failing and require repair. Also red flags are sagging or uneven gutters, which are frequently caused by detritus accumulation or confined water. Check the exterior of your home for peeling paint or water discoloration, as these may indicate water escape from the downspouts. Regular maintenance and prompt gutter repair can prolong the life of your gutters and protect your home.
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.
