Why New Gutters are a Smart Investment

Gutters and downspouts are the unsung heroes of a home, so it’s no surprise that many homeowners don’t pay them much attention. However, gutters are a worthwhile investment you’ll want to keep an eye on. Not only are they responsible for directing water away from the roof but they also funnel water away from the soil surrounding the home so that the foundation doesn’t get damaged. Without properly installed gutters, you could be at risk of spending thousands of dollars in repairs every year.

Although a well-maintained, high-quality gutter can last many years, they certainly don’t last forever. Be sure to watch out for these warning signs that your gutter system needs to be cleaned, repaired, or even replaced:

  • Cracks, holes, and rust spots
  • Sagging or separated gutters
  • Peeling exterior paint
  • Eroded landscaping
  • Flooded basements

Types of Gutters

During the autumn season, gutters quietly gather leaves and dust. But when the rain falls, they spring into action to collect water and send it down a drainpipe away from your home. That’s why regular maintenance is important for keeping your gutters working properly. If you’re in need of a new gutter, consider the size of your home and roof to determine which style you might prefer.

Seamless Gutters

Durable, seamless gutters can add curb appeal to almost any home. The biggest selling point is that they only have joints at the corners and where the gutter meets the downspouts. This decreases their likelihood of leaking. Even if one section fails, it can be removed and replaced without affecting the rest of the gutter system.

Sectional Gutters

Sectional gutters, also called continuous gutters, are composed of small pieces of metal connected by seams. All sectional systems have end caps, corner pieces, and drop outlets for connecting to downspouts. They attach either by overlapping them or snapping them together with joiner pieces.
