Des Moines Seamless Gutter Repair & Replacement
If you are not maintaining your gutters, you could be harming the health of your entire home. Damaged or leaking gutters can lead to costly repairs for your property like water damage, foundation issues and even pest problems. Don’t take the risk of ignoring the condition of your gutters - get a property evaluation from Superstorm Restoration’s gutter repair and exterior services team in Des Moines to know whether you need to repair or replace your gutter system.
Why Do You Need Gutters on Your Home?
Gutters and downspouts perform two main functions: they help direct roof water runoff away from your house and help protect the exterior surface and perimeter grading of your home from water damage. By directing water away from your house, you could save yourself from costly and stressful situations that excess water around the home could cause.
Signs You Need New Gutters
Our Des Moines gutters repair & replacement team does a thorough property evaluation around the entire exterior of the home. We perform a drone roof inspection to make sure we get a look at the full condition of your roof and home exterior so we can identify all signs of damage. Our team looks for the following signs when we do a property evaluation for gutters:
- Cracks, Splits & Sagging - These are the three most common physical signs that you need new gutters. If your gutters are pulling away from the home, sagging or visibly not containing and redirecting the water off your roof, it’s time for a gutter replacement.
- Peeling Paint & Rust Spots - If you notice these natural signs of wear and tear on your gutters, consider installing new gutters soon. Homeowners might also notice peeling paint on their siding as a sign that the overflow from the gutters is damaging their property.
- Flooding or Pools of Water - When water continually builds up around your home, there’s a much higher chance that you’re just one bad storm away from a flooded basement. If you do experience a flood in the home, make sure you try to take care of it right away to avoid more water damage.
- Mold & Mildew Growth - If water does sneak into the home, it doesn’t take long for it to cause damage such as mold or mildew. You don’t necessarily need to experience a flood to get mold in your house, so be on the lookout for other water leaks.
- Foundation Damage & Erosion - When water is continually falling directly below the home because there’s no gutters, it can cause erosion to the soil around the home. This can lead to excess water near the foundation and put pressure on the home, causing cracks or worse damage.
- Pest Problems - All living things need water to survive, and many insects and pests thrive when there’s a surplus of water. When homeowners let water build up near their property, they are basically inviting the pests to live near their home and make their way indoors. Having gutters push the water away from the home will give you a better chance of keeping insects away.
Should You Replace Gutters When Replacing The Roof?
If your gutters are damaged or in need of repair, it makes sense to replace them when you replace your roof. However, gutter replacement isn't always necessary. Ask your Des Moines roofing contractor to inspect your gutters when you replace your roof.
What is the Average Gutter Replacement Cost?
If your home has suffered storm damage that affected the state of your gutters, you may be able to claim insurance to help cover the cost of gutter repair or replacement. Additionally, Superstorm Restoration offers financing options for gutter replacements in Des Moines. The gutter replacement cost for your home depends on factors like the size of your home, how large your gutter system is and the type of gutter you choose.
