How Often Should You Have Your Gutters Cleaned?
Leaves, sticks, dirt, and grime can all become trapped in your home’s gutters over time. Most experts recommend scheduling gutter cleaning at least twice a year. Various factors, including where you live and the number of trees near your home, can affect how often you should have your gutters cleaned.
How Often Should Gutters Be Replaced
This depends partly on whether a gutter system is well-maintained. Assuming regular maintenance, the lifespan of different types of gutters are listed below:
- Vinyl Gutters: These usually last less than 10 years.
- Galvanized Steel Gutters: These usually last 20 years.
- Aluminum Gutters: These can last 20 years.
- Copper Gutters: These are known to last 50 years.
When to Install New Gutters
There are several signs to watch out for if you are deciding on whether to replace your gutter system.
- Nearing regular lifespan: If you know how old your gutter system is, you can estimate how much longer depending on the material.
- Cracks and holes: If you are are noticing more than a couple holes or breaks in your gutters, it may be time to replace the whole system.
- Disconnecting from roof: The fascia boards that your gutter system are nailed into may be rotting if you have to consistently hammer the fasteners.
- Paint is peeling around the gutters: If water is seeping out of the gutters, it will begin to damage the paint and walls.
- Sagging or wrongly pitched: Improper installation, damage, or aging can cause gutters to lose their slope. If this happens, water can begin to pool and spill out in the wrong places.
