Five Signs Your Gutters Need To Be Replaced

Gutter replacement signs

You've tried cleaning your gutters. You've tried having gutter guards installed. Despite these steps, your gutters seem to be functioning worse than ever. You may have discovered a problem that simple pressure washing won't fix.

It may be time to replace your gutters.

Like roof shingles or paint jobs, gutters aren't meant to last forever. Sure, they'll last a while, but with time, they'll deteriorate. Fortunately, your local Richmond pressure washing company can help! Until you're able to schedule a consultation, here are five signs you'll notice on your own when it's time to replace your gutters.


This is perhaps the easiest sign to spot. Gutters will not work correctly unless they remain tightly fastened to each other. When your gutters begin to separate, it's a clear sign that it's time to replace them.

Continuously Loosening Fasteners Or Screws

If you're noticing screws or fasteners on the ground around your house, there's a good chance that they're loosening and falling away from your gutters. These screws and fasteners are typically easy to replace. However, if they keep loosening and falling away, it's a good idea to have your gutters replaced.

Your Gutters Are Cracking, Rusty, Or Full Of Holes

Another easy sign to spot. Gutters that are filled with cracks or are starting to rust over are out of date and should be replaced ASAP.

Water Standing In Your Gutters

If water is standing in your gutters and not flowing out, this is a good sign that your gutters aren't functional. Standing water tells you that you should have your gutters replaced.

Persistent Mold Or Mildew

Seeing a little mold or mildew here and there in your gutters is typical with runoff. However, if your gutters are constantly gathering mold and mildew despite cleaning efforts, that's a sign that they aren't functioning properly. If they aren't functioning properly, it's time to have them replaced.
