Rust, holes or cracks in the gutter material
Rust, holes or cracks in the gutter material indicates the guttering needs to be replaced. Your whole homes guttering may not need to be removed and replaced, rather just the length of guttering that the rust, holes or cracks is on.
Your gutters have separated
If large spaces are evident where gutters should be joined it means your gutters have separated. Water will flow through this space and over the side of your gutters. When this occurs it normally means the damage is beyond repair and the gutters need to be replaced.
Mould and mildew
Mould and mildew can be present on guttering. If noticed when it first appears, it can often be removed. However, if left it will continue to grow and can spread to the base of your homes foundations and the ceiling of your outdoor area.
