Whether your home is a fixer-upper or historic, you may be thinking of some renovations you’d like done. With an older home, you get many stories, but you also get many projects to be completed. There are many home renovation tasks that can be done, one of them being new gutters.

Do You Need New Gutters?

There are many factors that will determine if your older home needs the gutters replaced. Weather conditions, history of your home and landscape are a few. Replacing your gutters may not be a priority if you receive moderate rainfall, only have a few trees nearby and if they were replaced recently. This isn’t always the case though. You might be in the market for new gutters if you notice they are constantly clogging, leaking and overflowing. Regardless if your home is new or old, if you’re undergoing issues like roof or foundations leaks, you may need new gutters.

Your Older Home Could Have Clogged Gutters

Homes with older gutters will collect debris over time and any rusted areas that collect debris will get worse as the years go by. As time goes on, your clogged gutters will overflow to your foundation, causing damaged. Installing new gutters will help to ensure that your home’s foundation isn’t harmed from overflowing gutters.

Clogged Gutters Can Cause Issues to Your Roof

If you find that your gutters are clogged, sagging, etc., those issues can lead to problems with your home’s roof. The backup of water can make it make its way to your shingles and leak into your home. If this happens in the winter, it can cause ice dams to form underneath your shingles, which will pry them apart.
