Most gutters are built to last for two or more decades before they need replacing. But, for optimum durability, you need gutters that are made of the right materials. Galvanized steel, copper, and aluminum gutters are the longest lasting. With proper care and maintenance, your gutters can even outlast the roof itself!
At first glance, the gutter system appears damage proof. However, certain unforeseen accidents could limit the effectiveness and durability of your gutter system. Age is never the reason most gutters need replacing. More often than not, accidents such as fallen tree limbs are the reason why you may experience irreversible damage to your gutters.
So how can you tell that your gutters have been damaged? What signs do you look out for to establish whether or not you need gutter replacement? Read on to find out.
Fasteners are what hold different parts of your gutters together. Without these fasteners, your gutter function and stability is compromised. Due to old age, harsh weather, or vandalism, you may find that part of your gutters such as the fasteners is either missing or broken.
If you realize that too many of your fasteners are missing, you have no choice but to immediately have your gutters replaced.
One crack here and there on your gutters is no cause for alarm. However, when you can see more cracks than usual, and at the same time notice puncture holes and rusty spots, then it’s a clear indication that your roof has done its time.
A sealant can help you buy a few months as you look for funds to get your gutters replaced. In the long-run, however, you will have to get rid of the old gutters and install new ones.
If no matter how often or how many fasteners you use the gutters always seem to find a way to separate from the roof, then gutter replacement is inevitable. Usually, when the gutters keep separating from the roof, you should also check on your fascia boards because they also could be rotting.
In their quest to save money, numerous homeowners choose to work with inexperienced Austin gutter contractors who charge low rates for services rendered. The only problem with this is that you will end up experiencing gutter issues one of them being poorly pitched or sagging gutters. In the long run, you’ll have to spend even more money to get a new, functioning gutter installed.
Peeling paint may be a sign of old age. But what most residential property owners don’t know is that peeling paint is also another indicator that your gutters have water damage. During wet seasons, water could escape via your siding or trim instead of draining through the gutters. If this is the case, then you will need to replace your gutters to avoid further damage.

We work with several different financing companies allowing us to offer affordable, low-cost payment plans to our customers. In some cases, you may have the opportunity to defer payments for several months, as well as no money down!
The answer to this question is it truly “depends”. The lifespan that a roofing system will last depends on the roofing material that you have installed on your roof. While an asphalt shingle roof can last 15-20 years, a metal roof can last 40-50 years, while a tile or slate roof can last 50+ years! More than just the roofing material, there are also variables like the grade/quality of material that you used, the craftsmanship of the contractor, as well as any storm activity your roof has been exposed to.
“Should I repair or replace my roof” is one of the most common questions that we get. This answer also depends on each situation, with age being one of the largest factors. A leaking 7-year old metal or shingle roof may have flashing or a section that needs to be repaired. This may be a minor repair. However, a 17-year old leaking shingle roof may require a full replacement if a repair can not made to extend the useful life of your roof.
This depends on the size of your roof, and the roofing material that you decide to go with. In many instances, an asphalt shingle roof can be installed in as little as one day!
