When Is the Best Time to Install New Gutters?

Spring is the best time to test your gutters and evaluate whether you need new gutters. During rain showers common during the season, you need to keep an eye out for any gutters leaks that could damage your exterior. 

Aside from leaks, you should also keep an eye out for the warning signs of gutter damage. Mass-Tech Roofing and Building Co.​, your trusted roofer, lists them below: 

When Is The Best Time To Install New Gutters?

Warning Signs of Gutter Damage 

  • Rust – Rust usually appears at the bottom of aging gutters. However, corrosion can also form if your gutters received infrequent maintenance. Rust will form on your gutters if they aren’t given a fresh coat of paint every few years. 
  • Cracks and dents – The freezing weather might have finally taken its toll on your gutters. In winter, the build-up of ice can damage your gutters. Dents, on the other hand, aren’t an immediate cause for concern. But, gutters with dents should still be replaced as soon as possible. That’s because dents will eventually cause leaks. 

What’s the Best Time to Install Gutters? 

Summer is the best time to install new gutters. Sunny weather and the lack of rain make it ideal for home improvement projects in general. However, if you notice any of the aforementioned warning signs, you need to replace your gutters as soon as possible. The longer you put off replacing aging gutters, the higher the risk your roof will suffer moisture damage, which could affect other parts of your home. 

Here’s a pro-tip: While summer is generally considered the best time for home improvement projects, a gutter replacement project in spring also has its advantages. For starters, it’s easier to schedule an appointment with your preferred roofing company in spring. Summer is the most popular season for home improvement projects, so you might not be able to schedule an appointment with your preferred roofer, let alone find one with an opening in their packed schedule.
