Do you have old gutters on your home?
Old is a relative term, especially when it comes to the life of a gutter system. Typically gutters in between 10 and 20 years previous were installed with spike and ferrules, which attach the gutter to the home. These gutters are often a lighter in weight weight/ gauge .027 gutter, which quickly dents or dips with all the weight of a ladder or even debris in the gutter.
The spikes lose their strength the further and pull away from the gutter. Then their is a breach in the gutter, it is just a matter of time before the rain gutter drops down, full of debris, snow or water often creating damage to the home or property , or cars below.
Professional gutter companies only use hidden hangers fastened with screws. The advantage will be the threaded screws make a tighter bond with the fascia the rain gutter is attached to, that will not occur with the expansion as well as contraction of the gutters over time. The hangers are also built to hold up to 200 lbs per hanger. A seamless heavy measure .032 gutters fastened with undetectable hangers will last over three decades! There are many warning signs that reveal the need for gutters or the replacing your existing system. In many instances rain gutters can be repaired or re-secured.
A new Gutter System that is appropriately installed and maintained simply by regular Gutter Cleanings or Servicing should last up to 30 years. Gutters that have not been correctly maintained usually fail among 10 and 15 years.
