On top of the normal wear and tear, there are a lot of factors that can damage your gutters. Bad weather and falling trees are some examples. Because of this, knowing when to replace your gutters will be difficult. Luckily, the experts from Kiwispout NZ LTD have provided some ideas to help you out with this problem.

Broken Fasteners

To keep your gutters at the right level, you need pieces of metal attached to your roof to fasten it. These fasteners can break, but it is easily fixable through some repairs. However, if you notice that you are having too many repairs, then your gutters may be the issue, and it is time for a replacement.

Holes, Cracks and Rust Spots

As the gutter ages, holes, cracks and rust spots are bound to appear once in a while. These are repairable through the use of flashing and sealants. However, if there is a need of constant repairs, the costs will no longer make sense. To put it simply, replace your gutters once there are too many holes, cracks, and rust spots to manage.

Sagging Gutters

If you fail to keep a proper pitch along with your gutter system, the water will form pools and even start spilling over. The water will then end up flooding your landscape and your house. Once you notice sagged gutters, it is time for a replacement.

Roof spouting in Tauranga should never be part of your do-it-yourself projects. By doing it yourself, you are bound to cause more harm than good to the existing gutter system. Instead, contact professional roofers for inspection, repair and replacement of your gutters.
