Reasons Your Gutters Won’t Make It Through the Fall
Your gutters are old.
Most gutters last between 15 and 20 years, but if yours have been around longer than that and you haven’t replaced them, you should have them inspected. Otherwise, they won’t do you any good when it comes to protecting your home.
Your gutters are rusting.
Rusting leads to cracks, and cracks lead to holes. While some of that damage can be fixed, if it gets too bad, you’ll need entirely new gutters in order to protect your home.
Your gutters or sagging or detached.
If you’re gutters aren’t attached to your house, they can’t do their jobs and definitely won’t last through the fall.
Your gutters keep getting clogged.
Remember that well-known fact we told you? Those falling leaves will 100% end up in your gutter at some point or another. If they keep getting clogged, that’s a telltale sign that something is wrong, and your gutters won’t make it to fall.
