Autumn means leaves will be falling off the trees. And even though this is a beautiful sight to see, if your gutters are not in tip-top shape, they won’t be as happy during this time of the year. Here are three reasons your gutters won’t make it til springtime.
- Your current gutters are old.
When it comes to your home, age is NOT just a number. Age is one of the most common reasons for most home repairs or reconstruction. While the quality of the material, conditions, and weather all come into play, nothing can combat old age.
- There’s damage.
Your gutter system is constantly exposed to the outdoor elements. And for this reason alone, they can take quite a beating overtime. If professionals find them broken beyond repair, don’t delay replacement. You could end up facing serious structural and moisture damage in the end, especially during the harsh winter weather conditions.
- Your gutters are clogged.
Leaves falling off the trees makes for a pretty autumn sight. But they also make for clogged gutters which leads to costly repairs. And don’t forget about all those acorns (or chestnuts) — gutters clogged with nuts can lead to pesky critters like mice or squirrels, and they have no problems chewing holes in your roof and/or siding!
