When it comes to a point where you have to replace your gutters, first, it’s important to have an expert do the gutter replacement. An expert will get the installation process right the first time.
Besides having an expert do the installation, there are other considerations you need to look into:
- Your local climate
The very first reason gutters fail can be attributed to the weather condition of your area. Were your gutters sturdy enough to counter the effect of hail, snow, heavy rainfall, and sunlight?
If it wasn’t, explore the different tough and durable materials available in the market and choose the best you can find.
Copper, for example, is the most durable but the most expensive, and aluminum is affordable, resistant to rot, and so versatile. For more information, research the best materials for rain gutters.
- How’s your roof condition
With a damaged gutter, the probability your roof also has issues is high. So, when replacing your gutters, make sure to address the problems with your roof first.
When your roofing is in a good state, your new gutters are also almost guaranteed a longer lifespan.
- Identify the best location for your new gutters
Another cause for faulty gutters can be poor installation, inaccurate measurement or poor placement. These mishaps would ultimately compromise the integrity of the gutter system.
So, to avoid getting it wrong this time around, hire professional gutter services.
The professionals will, of course, take correct measurements in correspondence with your gutter system size and ensure it’s correctly installed in the right place.
Moreover, they will ensure your downspouts are well placed away from the sidewalks, electric meter, or any other obstacle.
The key to a longer lifespan of your new gutter system is regular maintenance, and most importantly, adding an extra layer of protection.
Consider installing hangers or metal flashings to prevent water from running behind the gutters. Leaf guards are also great to help keep away debris out of your gutter system.
