There are a lot of important parts that make up the exterior of a home or business such as the roofing, windows, and siding. Unfortunately, the gutters are often overlooked and neglected until it is too late and damage has been done. Regular inspections and maintenance from a local Gilroy gutter installation contractor will help protect your property from costly water damage repairs.
We know that your gutters are not very exciting when it comes to renovations, but the last thing you want is for your gutters to fail on you when you need them the most. Even though it does not rain that much in California when it does, it has the potential to downpour and flash floods. Therefore, you need a gutter system that is in tip-top condition and capable of safely moving thousands of gallons of water away from your home or business.
There are a number of signs that your gutters are failing. Basement flooding after rainstorms is one of the biggest red flags. If there are any blockages or broken parts in the system, water will probably make its way inside at some point in time. The last thing you want or need is an indoor swimming pool that you did not order. A clogged gutter can damage your roof from water splashing back onto it during a heavy rainstorm.

Another warning sign that your gutters might need to be replaced is their age. If you are unsure how old they are, it is time to schedule a thorough inspection with a local gutter company and get a set of professional eyes on them. We offer affordable and reliable solutions for whatever your gutters need! Here is a list of the most common gutter materials and their approximate lifespan:
Aluminum - 20 years
Steel - 20-25 years
Bonderized - 20-25 years
Copper - 50 years and beyond
As you can see, copper is the longest-lasting material, and also the most expensive. If you can afford copper gutters, they will probably be the last set of gutters you put on your home or business. Most modern homes and buildings have seamless aluminum gutters that do the job just fine, especially for their cost. In any case, whatever type of gutters you have or want to get, they must be properly maintained if you want them to do their job effectively.
