Should Gutters Be Repaired Or Replaced?

An often-forgotten aspect of Northern Colorado home maintenance lies in your gutter system, and making sure it continues to holdup  to the harsh rain, hail, and snow your home’s exterior can be exposed to. Front Range Seamless Gutters is the locally owned and operated gutter service company homeowners trust for all their regular maintenance, repairs, and replacements; we have more than 30 years of experience installing gutters that are suited for Colorado’s unique climate. But when it comes to this particular area of home improvement, which is better: a gutter repair or a gutter replacement? Check out our Front Range Seamless Gutters’ advice below and contact us to take care of all your needs!

Repairs Are Best For Minimal Damage

The first step to considering if your Northern Colorado home needs a gutter repair or gutter replacement is to call our local family-owned company for an inspection. We will make a note of the overall condition of your gutters, what the materials look like, and test to see if it runs liquid away from your home like it is meant to. Our Front Range Seamless Gutters staff will recommend, if we notice any minor signs of damage — such as small cracks or seams that are splitting — to resolve the issue with gutter repairs! If we also notice any signs of your gutter leaking, such as peeling paint or chipped siding, then our staff can take care of that as well.

Repairs Are Best For Seasonal & Yearly Maintenance

While we take into account the overall look of your Northern Colorado home’s gutter system, it’s important for you as a homeowner to think about the last time your gutters were serviced. Checking for damage from hail, rain, or snow should be performed after every single major storm, and general maintenance or cleaning should be performed at least twice a year. If you follow a consistent maintenance schedule, and are noticing some issues, a gutter repair service from Front Range Seamless Gutters is likely the best way to go. If it’s been awhile since your last cleaning or maintenance service, contact us to get expert advice!

Invest in Replacements For Long-Term Damage

Long-term damage to your gutter is often a sign that a full-on gutter replacement is needed in order to protect the integrity of your house’s exterior. If your gutters haven’t been receiving regular or annual maintenance, and if our staff discovers several smaller issues when performing the initial inspection, Front Range Seamless Gutters can help you start your replacement project. In cases of too much environmental damage or too broken of a pre-existing system, gutter repairs can act as band-aid and not resolve the actual issue; in these cases, gutter replacements are the most affordable and stable option. 

Choose A Replacement For Rot Or Mildew

In addition to looking for signs of damage or malfunction, our staff will also inspect your gutters and look for more serious issues, such as wood rot, mildew, heavy water damage, or erosion. Because of the severity of things like rot or mildew, and because of the potential health risks they can pose to your loved ones, a complete gutter replacement is often the best solution. Especially if these issues have been unknowingly left to fester for several months, Front Range Seamless Gutters recommends being safe, rather than sorry, and investing in a whole new, perfectly-working system.
