Corner of a Roof Gutter

Gutter Boss LLC


Rain gutters are more important than you might realize. Though they can add a nice decorative element to your home, their primary purpose is to prevent mold, mildew, and other water damage. Gutters keep your home in place by directing rainwater away from your siding and foundation


An inch of rainfall doesn’t sound like much. But when it falls on an average-size roof, it adds up to a 1,900-gallon torrent sluicing off the eaves. That’s an awful lot of water that can cause an awful lot of damage if your gutters aren’t up to the task of controlling it. Yet we barely give gutters a second thought until they’re clogged and overflowing, or ripped from their moorings by ice and snow.

So now that summer’s here, it’s time to take notice. Maybe a simple cleaning is all your gutters need, or maybe they need to be replaced altogether.

Gutter Maintenance

Signs It's Time To Replace Your Guttering. The majority of rainwater systems are manufactured from galvanised steel or aluminium, giving them a lifespan of approximately 20 years. However, if the correct maintenance measures are put into place, these can often achieve a lifespan of as much as 40 years

Replacing Gutters

Below, we’ve defined some of the core components and concepts of a home’s gutter system. This overview will help you better understand the gutter’s design and its role in protecting your home.

  • Downspout: This vertical pipe carries rainwater from the gutters down to a drain or the ground. 

  • Drainage: This refers to a system of gutters and drainpipes that carry rainwater away from your home’s siding and foundation.

  • Fascia board: This flat board runs horizontally along the edge of your roof. It tends to cap the ends of your roof rafters to provide a more finished look. Fascia boards also provide a base for attaching gutters.

  • Hanger: This is a metal bracket installed on the fascia board to secure the horizontal gutter section.

  • Pitch: This is the angle at which a horizontal section of the gutter is tilted. This angle forces rainwater to flow towards a downspout and is crucial to proper gutter function.

  • Seams: Many gutter designs have seams where individual lengths of gutter connect. During installation and routine maintenance, you must apply a gutter sealant to prevent these seams from leaking water.  

  • Splash block: This plastic or concrete surface is placed under a downspout to direct water away from your home, avoiding pooling around the foundation and possible trenching during heavy downpours.
