All homeowners will need to replace their gutters over time, either through ordinary wear and tear or damage from debris buildup. Especially if you don’t have the time to perform regular gutter maintenance, leaves, dirt and even small animals can get caught inside and cause it to sag and overflow. A damaged gutter can affect the foundation of your home, weakening its structural integrity and damaging the walls and floors. To avoid this, you need to replace your gutter immediately.

What are the things to consider when you need to replace your roof gutters?

Budget

The first thing you need to consider is how much of your budget you can spend on a gutter replacement. Not all gutters are the same and their cost depends on the material they are made of as well as their features or add-ons. Decide if you are going to buy an inexpensive gutter or if you are willing to invest in a pricier one.

Gutter Material

You have several choices of materials for your gutter. Gutters made with plastic or vinyl are the least expensive but they are also the least durable. They have increased brittleness in colder temperatures while and exposure to harsh sunlight can damage them over time. Aluminium is a popular choice and is also lightweight and rust-proof, but the lighter weight also makes it not so durable. Galvanized steel is heavier, resistant to rust and is perfect for places with extreme weather conditions. If you are in bushfire-prone areas, you should install a gutter made with galvanized steel.  (READ: What is COLORBONG (R) Gutters?)

Sizing

Another important factor to consider is the size of your gutters. If you need to replace your gutter because it was damaged by heavy rainfall, you may not have the right size that corresponds to the amount of rainfall in your area. The size of your gutter should be based on the maximum amount of rainfall you expect instead of the average rainfall. Otherwise, water will overflow, damaging not only the gutter itself but your home as well.

Gutter Protection

Aside from the gutter itself, you should also consider investing in gutter guards. Leaf guards protect your gutters from falling leaves, dirt and other debris that may clog your gutters. There are different types of gutters including gutter screens, gutter brush and gutter covers.
