How To Tell if You Need New Gutters
You count on your gutters to drain rainwater off the roof and away from the foundation. If yours have already contributed decades of service, they may be nearing the end of their useful life span. Here’s how to tell it’s time to upgrade your home with top-quality seamless gutters by BRAX Roofing:
- Extensive cracking, rusting, and leaking: Do you notice cracks, green rust, or leaks during rainstorms? Localized damage may be repairable, but consider replacing your gutters if the problem is widespread.
- Failing seams: A gutter system’s weakest points are anywhere two sections come together. Take notice if visible gaps appear as seams begin pulling apart. While gutter seams can often be mended, installing seamless gutters may be the better option.
- Standing water: Gutters are installed at a specific slope to help guide water toward the downspouts. If some sections have sagged or detached from the house, there may now be standing water in the gutters. This invites mosquitoes and other pests, so don’t ignore this sign that you need new gutters.
- Siding damage: Besides examining the gutters, look at your home’s siding for signs of gutter failure. For instance, peeling paint, wood rot, and water streaks indicate leaky gutters. Simply cleaning them out may be enough to improve drainage, but a gutter replacement could be in order if you see any other signs outlined above.

Benefits of Seamless Gutter Installation
At BRAX Roofing, we only install seamless aluminum and copper gutters far superior to traditional sectioned gutters. When properly installed, seamless gutters are unlikely to leak because they have fewer joints to come apart and cause problems. The only seams present are those that connect the gutters to the downspouts. This is possible because seamless gutters are extruded onsite, resulting in a custom fit based on your roof’s dimensions. As a result, seamless gutters require less maintenance and last longer than their sectioned counterparts.
