Most roofing and gutter experts recommend getting your gutters cleaned twice per year. This helps reduce the likelihood of leaf or debris build-up that will clog your gutters during rainfall. If you neglect this maintenance, you risk damaging your home’s paint, foundation and basement space.
You know gutter maintenance is important, but sometimes, even regular maintenance isn’t enough to protect your home from the effects of heavy rain. Time, wear and tear can do a number on gutters–especially if they’re already old.
If your gutters are damaged, no amount of cleaning will offer optimal protection for your home. Here’s what you should know about gutter repair or replacement in Nashville.
The Average Lifespan of Gutters
Most properly installed gutters have a lifespan of about 15-20 years. However, gutters that aren’t well-maintained won’t necessarily last that long.
Even if your gutters look like they’re in good shape, they could have cracks or splits in them that are sending rainwater onto the side of your house. Over time, this moisture can damage your foundation, cause your paint to peel or even flood your basement.
If you haven’t had your gutters inspected in several years, it’s time to invest in a maintenance visit.
