We can help you improve rain flow and protect your home with new gutters.
Although they may not be the most visually appealing component of your Richmond, Texas house, gutters are essential for preventing water damage. When they are working correctly, they divert rainwater away from the foundation of your home, avoiding expensive problems like mold growth, structural damage, and basement flooding. However, gutter life is limited, and they will eventually need to be replaced. Our team at 323 Roofing and Restoration can help you with gutter installation and replacement, giving you peace of mind. Consider the following signs that you need new gutters, and then call our team.
Usually, gutters are constructed from steel, vinyl, or aluminum. These materials are susceptible to deterioration over time from exposure to the weather. Rust and corrosion are among the most typical indicators of gutter wear and strain. Your gutters are nearing the end of their lives if you notice orange or reddish patches on them. Rust can damage gutters and create holes in them, rendering them useless for directing water.
Another indicator that your gutters need to be replaced is if they have holes and cracks in them. Natural aging, impact damage from falling branches, and drastic temperature changes can all cause these issues to appear over time. When this happens, water can leak out of gutters and collect around the foundation of your house, causing possible structural problems if not fixed quickly.
If you’ve noticed that your exterior paint is peeling or blistering, it might be due to the condition of your gutters. When water is no longer being diverted correctly, it flows out of the gutters or pool and causes damage to your siding, fascia boards, or eaves. Our team can assist in replacing your gutters and help with repainting the exterior if needed.
As mentioned above, leaking gutters create an ideal environment for the growth of mold and mildew. In addition to lowering indoor air quality, these contaminants can be harmful to your health. It’s time to take care of your gutter system if you see mold or mildew in your basement or on your external walls.
