Before you say yes to a gutter maintenance service, learn these signs of gutter damage. Be on the lookout for the following:
● Standing water in your gutters
● Gutter overflows each time it rains
● Detaching gutters from your house
● Downspout has become loose
● You see visible rust
Aside from taking note of these signs, also consider the year you installed your gutters (if you currently have one).
Different gutter materials vary in life expectancy. For example, aluminum gutters last between 20 to 40 years. If your gutters are made of copper, expect them to last up to 50 years.
However, do remember that regardless of your gutter material, maintenance still has a huge and significant impact on the service life of your gutters.
Ideally, homeowners and business owners must perform gutter maintenance at least twice a year. Inspection is often required whenever there are storms.
