Here are some helpful tips from Bob Villa’s website on how to tell if your rain gutters are damaged:

Inspect your rain gutters for visible signs of cracking 

  • Use some binoculars to inspect for smaller cracks
  • If you see extensive cracking; replacement is required

Inspect gutter seams

  • Look for damage where two horizontal sections meet

Inspect your home’s paint job

  • If there is evidence of paint peeling; itmay point to rain gutter failure
  • Check the section of the rain gutter closest to the paint damage for leaks
  • If there are more than a couple of leaks; you may want to replace the rain gutters

Inspect your home’s exterior wood elements for rotting windowsills or door jambs

  • You may have clogged rain gutters or inadequate storm drainage

Inspect the exterior of the house for mildew damage

  • If there is moisture accumulating around or near the foundation, mildew can grow. This is a sign your rain gutters are not working properly.
