By utilizing a gutter system, it is possible to channel rainwater away from a structure and the environment that surrounds it. The Brothers That Just Do Gutters will perform periodic checks of the outside of the property to search for indications of water damage. During these exams, we will be looking for any signs of leaking, sagging, spilling, or puddles that may be present. If you don’t take care of these problems, there is a strong possibility that the foundation of your home and your valuables may be damaged by water. The installation of gutters requires additional measures that are not strictly required, such as cleaning and the addition of guards.
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.
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.
