Gutters that are sagging, leaking, or otherwise in disrepair are not only an eyesore on a home, but they can also cause numerous problems, such as water damage to the foundation of the home and landscape erosion. In fact, allowing malfunctioning gutters to remain on a home can cause even more damage than if there were no gutters at all, as they can allow water to sit stagnant against the roof and fascia, leading to rot. So, if you suspect any of these issues are occurring with your gutters, you are likely making the right choice in removing them and having new gutters installed.
The first step in removing gutters is to remove the downspout by detaching it from the elbow joint that connects it to the gutter panels, and removing the straps that attach the downspout to the side of the house. Next, the gutter panels are removed by taking off the devices that are keeping the gutters hung – this typically means undoing screws, or prying out nails. Finally, it is a good idea to repair any holes left behind with caulk or wood putty so that water cannot seep into these holes.
