There are several reasons why you may need to replace your gutters. Leaky gutters or gutters that hold water can be problematic. Additionally, worn-out or damaged gutters can detract from the appearance of your home. Old gutters may not drain properly, or they may be pulling away from the house. Bent gutters may be irreparable, leading to clogs and other drainage issues. Finally, you may choose to replace your gutters to match a new house color or style.

The frequency of gutter cleaning depends on the types of trees in your area. If trees hang over your gutters and shed frequently, you should expect to clean your gutters up to four times per year. Pine trees are often the biggest culprits for requiring regular gutter cleaning. However, if there are few trees around your property, cleaning your gutters twice a year is usually sufficient.

Several factors should be considered when choosing a gutter product, including the size of your home, the amount of rainfall your property receives per year, the trees surrounding your home, the materials needed for optimal performance, and the style and color of the gutters.
