The Importance of Gutter Replacement

It’s important to assess just how much of your gutter system needs to be replaced. If you opt to replace the entire system without inspection, you could be paying far more than is necessary. Look for sections that are damaged or outdated. If you aren’t sure which parts need to be replaced, a contractor can offer valuable insight.


If you are considering replacing your gutters, it’s a good time to also reconsider the materials and composition of your new gutter system. The most common materials used in gutters are:

  • Aluminum: Aluminum is fairly standard and commonly used on residential exteriors.
  • Copper: Copper isn’t as common as aluminum, but if properly maintained it can have a long lifetime.
  • Galvanized Steel: Galvanized steel tends to be more shiny than aluminum, and it is also more durable.

Gutter Size

Size may be one of the most important things to consider when it comes to selecting new gutters. If you live in an area that experiences heavy rainfall, your gutters will need to be able to handle the precipitation. If they are ill-equipped to deal with the weather, your home could potentially be damaged.
