Should You Repair Or Replace Gutters? Victoria States Quick Guide
 
There are some issues on a property that can be remedied at a later period in time. Some problems, including those involving gutters, Victorians should know, are best remedied at the soonest time possible — ignoring a damaged gutter can lead to one massive headache that can end up costing more than it should.
 
Gutters divert rainwater from the roof away from the home's walls and foundations. Left unchecked, rain water can seep to the soil around the foundation, splash against the walls, and even pool in under the home or crawlspace.
 
However, it is worthwhile to know whether you can simply repair your gutter or purchase and install new COLORBOND guttering for your home. Tell-tale signs of damaged guttering include leaks, staining, water overflow and rust. A repair is also in order if the gutters do not have correct fall.
 
You can have the gutters repaired if they remain straight and you have found no leaks. Sometimes, leaks are caused by breaks in the gutters. Gutters should slope toward downpipes, but not too much. Check the downpipes and downpipe nozzles to make sure they are secured firmly to the gutters. Leaks may also be attributed to clogs due to leaf matter, all you may need to do is remove debris.
 
In some cases, you may simply have them primed and repainted. Before replacing leaking gutters, check with your local metal shop and see whether the gutters can still be salvaged.
 
If there is absolutely no hope of repairing your gutters, make sure to find guttering that will match your home's style. If you perform a diligent search online, you might even find the same gutters as the one currently installed in your home.
 
Gutter replacement does not require technical expertise and most homeowners can perform the job by themselves. However, it is worthwhile to consider getting help from an experienced roofing contractor to ensure that the job is done correctly and allow you to save time and effort.
 
Gutter repairs and replacement can be quite costly when you add up material and labour costs. As such, it is worthwhile to know how to care for and maintain your home's gutters so that you wouldn't have to spend a large sum of money for an unexpected expense.
 
Make sure that your gutters are cleaned at least once a year. If you have several trees planted around your home, you should have your gutters cleaned regularly a few times a year. You might also want to protect your gutters from leaves and other debris by using gutter guards, covers and screens.
