When it comes to home maintenance, making the right choice is imperative. The decision to repair or replace your gutter system can be tough, but as long as you know what to look for, you can easily pursue the best course of action. Whatever you choose, the aim is to get this important component of your home to function again.
In today’s blog, the roofing and gutter pros of Patriot Roofing LLC take a look at instances where a gutter repair or replacement is necessary.
Tackling repairs might be the best solution for your situation if you come across the following problems:
Localized Damage. You don’t have to completely tear out the whole gutter system if a gutter section or two has suffered damage. You can just replace these sections with new ones.
Holes or Cracks. A sealant works in covering small openings. However, a piece of metal flashing is required if the hole or crack is noticeably large.
Loose Hangers. Tightening the hangers’ screws should work, though replacing them should do the trick if they’re already bent.
Sometimes, repairs just won’t cut it. You’ll probably need to do pursue a total replacement if you encounter the following:
- Extensive Damage. Gutter installation pros will recommend replacing the whole system if it has too many cracks, holes, or rust spots.
- Water Damage. A new gutter system is needed if water damage is evident in your landscaping, basement, siding, and other components of your home’s exterior.
- Incorrect Pitch. This problem can rarely be solved with an immediate fix. With new gutters, you can have peace of mind they are correctly pitched to allow water to flow to the downspouts.
