You're probably not thinking about your gutters right now. Of course not, the spring rains are behind us, right? Ah, but the fall storms will be here much too soon, and then there's another Minnesota winter. Gutters get a workout all year round. The elements can wreak a lot of havoc on your home, but luckily gutters and downspouts are there to save the day. When they are clean and working at their best, they work hard to remove rain and melting snow. While protecting your home against rain, gutters keep expensive moisture-related problems at bay, but good gutters don't last forever. So how do you know if your gutters need to be replaced?
- Look for cracks
- Are your gutters coming apart at the seams?
- Is rain spilling over the sides instead of going down the spout?
