Did You Know?

What Is Gutter Replacement? .

Gutter replacement is the process of removing and replacing the rain gutters on your home. Over time, gutters can become damaged, corroded, or clogged with debris, leading to water damage, leaks, and other problems if not addressed.

Gutter replacement starts with a professional inspection, checking for cracks, rust, sagging, loose or missing fasteners, and any signs of damage. Then, your home is precisely measured to ensure the replacement gutters are the right size and fit.

The old gutters are carefully removed from the eaves of the roof. In some cases, repairs to the fascia board or soffit are necessary. Finally, your new gutters and downspouts are installed and tested to ensure water flows off your roof correctly.

Gutter Replacement Costs

Gutters protect your home by channeling water off your roof and away from your foundation. With regular cleaning and maintenance, they will last 10 to 20 years. However, sagging, rusted, overflowing, or leaking gutters can lead to water damage along your roof or foundation.

Replacement gutters cost an average of $1,100, which is much less expensive than water damage repairs.

Important Indicators

Signs You Need Gutter Replacement.

As important as gutters are, it is easy to neglect them until there is a problem. While it’s easy to overlook some of these issues, especially when it is raining, you should check your gutters from the ground once a year to keep them working properly.

You can also look for signs that you need to replace your gutters during and after a storm. Look out the window during a heavy rainstorm to check for leaks and overflowing gutters. Walk around your home the next day to check for standing water and soil erosion.

If you notice any of the following signs, you should call a gutter replacement company to inspect the issue.


Leaky gutters are often the first sign of large issues. Over time, the gutter material will wear away at the seams, allowing water to leak through. This is most common in traditional seamed gutters, but even seamless gutters will eventually leak.

Water Overflows

If the water overflows the gutter and pours along your foundation, you definitely have a problem. Usually caused by gutter clogs, it prevents rainwater from flowing smoothly. Overflowing gutters can lead to several other problems that reduce the lifespan of your gutters.

Sagging Gutters

Sagging gutters are caused by clogs and overflows, as well as worn-out nails or materials. Sometimes, you can hammer a gutter nail back in, but it usually means it's time for gutter replacement.

Rust or Peeling Paint

Rust or peeling paint are signs of age, but it is also common in clogged gutters where water is trapped in the channel for long periods of time. The water causes the metal to rust and the paint to dissolve.


Water spots or stains on your roof or siding could also mean it is time for gutter replacement. Whether caused by leaks or overflows, rainwater will seep into roofing and siding materials. This will discolor the surface, leaving whiteish-yellow spots or darker areas.

Mold, Algae, or Moss

Mold, algae, and moss thrive in the presence of moisture. So, if you see them growing along your roof, gutters, or siding, they could mean you need to replace leaky or overflowing gutters. They are most common in areas with partial to full shade.

Standing Water

Standing water around your foundation is always a bad sign. But it could mean you need to replace your gutters if you have any of the other signs. This is most common with leaky or overflowing gutters, where the water just sits around your foundation.

Soil Erosion

Is the mulch or grass around your home wearing away? This is extremely common with clogged and overflowing gutters. The rainwater pours over the gutter edge, falling with enough force to wash away the soil underneath.

Foundation Issues

There are several causes for cracked, shifting, or leaky foundations. However, worn-out gutters could be the cause if you have any of the signs above. You should replace your gutters and downspouts before making any foundation repairs.
