Your roof can be home to a number of different accessories that enhance its performance. For example, solar roofing systems gather energy from the sun to help power your home while skylights can illuminate your indoors naturally. Despite their benefits, these parts are completely optional. One accessory that your roof can’t do without is gutters.
Modern gutter systems are built to last as long as the roofs they protect. However, even the toughest and best quality gutters still fall victim to regular wear and tear. During this time, it can be difficult to determine whether it’s more economical to keep fixing their issues or to simply replace them altogether.
Visible Physical Damage
A faulty gutter system can lead to a premature roof replacement. Cracks and holes are perhaps the most common signs that your gutter has become faulty. Unfortunately, these issues are virtually invisible when it’s not raining. The best way to detect these problems without waiting for rain is to have your roof and gutters thoroughly inspected at least once a year.
Sections Falling Apart
For traditional gutters, it doesn’t take a roof expert to know that when its sections are coming apart. This indicates that it’s already time to get new ones installed. Consider replacing your old gutters with a seamless system to avoid this serious problem in the future.
Dirt and debris are notorious for clogging up gutters in any residential roofing system. However, they also have an additional but equally dangerous effect: they can cause sagging problems. The fasteners that hold up the gutters are not designed to hold added weight. This eventually leads to sagging and, in worst cases, the entire gutter system falling off.
