If you already have gutters and are wondering if they need to be replaced or cleaned you should take a look at them on a nice day and check for any physical damages like sagging, rust, splits, or gutters that are coming away from the house. You should also go outside when it’s raining and circle your home to check where the flow is correct versus where it looks like the flow is stopped or diverted by leaves and debris. If your gutters are rusted in places this is a sign of future problems because the rust will eventually create holes. If you notice that the gutters are damaged in many places it may be time to replace them.
