Replacing failing gutters that leak is important to maintaining the integrity of a new paint job. One of the largest contributors to paint failure is water exposure. By replacing failed gutters, you can ensure that you’re contributing to the life of your property’s paint job. At its core, paint is the armor that prevents any substrate from being weathered by the elements.
By neglecting the need for new gutters, water will continuously run down the face of your property causing damage to the windows, foundation, water seals, and paint job.
Replacing your gutters isn’t necessarily a sexy investment, but it is a very important insurance policy for every substrate below them.
The objective of gutters is to install a system that is properly pitched to drain. The typical pitch is 1/6” of fall per 12” of run and will allow for an efficient drainage that stays clean of debris.
