Replacing Old Gutters
Get A Free Estimate!
Gutters collect rainwater from your roof and direct it away from your home through a downspout to keep it away from your home’s foundation and basement. If your home’s gutters aren’t working properly, the water could pool and possibly cause water damage, deterioration, erosion, mold, or rot on your roof, in your basement, or your foundation. If the water was to affect the foundation of your home, its structure and integrity could become compromised.
Gutters can easily weaken and stop working properly if they aren’t maintained well enough. Since gutters protect against major damage, their function is vital to your home. Leaves and debris can clog your gutters. Indiana storms and high wind can cause water to overflow or misalign. If a minor issue with your gutter system isn’t taken care of, then the issue can result in the need for an entire gutter replacement.
When Your Gutters Should Be Replaced
There are several signs for when it’s time for a gutter replacement. While aluminum and galvanized steel gutters can last a very long time, certain problems may not be considered but can require a replacement. If you’re noticing any of the following issues with your gutters, then it’s time to call SPG Roofing & Exteriors to determine whether the gutters need to be replaced.
If you’re seeing cracks, holes, or rust anywhere on the gutters, particularly in multiple different places, new gutters may be necessary. Sometimes these cracks and holes can be fixed with a little flashing or sealant, but you can get a contactless inspection from our team to see what the damage is.
Another sign that may mean that your gutters need to be replaced is broken fasteners or nails and screws found on the ground. Fasteners, nails, and screws keep your gutter in place. While these things can be replaced easily in most cases, these signs could mean other issues with your gutters need to be addressed.
Some signs are easier to notice than others. You may see your gutters sagging or pulling away from your roof, and you may also see your gutters separating from each other. These signs are easily seen when looking at your gutters and may mean you need new ones.
You may also see signs that aren’t solely related to the gutters themselves. If you’re noticing some exterior paint peeling on your home or eroded landscaping, then that could mean your gutters are draining the water away from your home properly.
In addition, if your basement has begun to flood, water could be leaking into your foundation. If you’re experiencing any of these signs, it’s time for a gutter inspection which may lead to a home gutter replacement. If these issues aren’t addressed as soon as possible, they could lead to more major problems.
Hiring a Professional
Homeowners sometimes undertake a gutter replacement by themselves. While there are plenty of sites online showing you how to DIY a gutter replacement, it’s best to keep it to the professionals. If you attempt to replace your gutters yourself, you may end up choosing a gutter material or style that doesn’t suit your house and doesn’t work as efficiently as other types. Hiring a professional, like SPG Roofing & Exteriors, can help prevent future problems if you were to choose the wrong type of gutters. If you work with our team, we can work with you to find the best gutter system for your home.

Hiring our residential gutter installation team can help you avoid any possible injury and will keep your feet firmly on the ground.
In addition, we come prepared. Our specialized equipment makes the gutter replacement process seamless and efficient. Most homeowners may not realize what is required to replace gutters properly.

All you need to do is choose a gutter that best suits the look of your home and trust in our team to get the job done right.
