Gutters serve a vital role in keeping our roofs and homes running smoothly. Not only do they offer a certain curb appeal, but their primary purpose is to prevent mold, mildew, and other water damage to your roofing system. Gutters keep your home working properly by directing rainwater away from the siding and foundation of your home.
How much will replacement gutters cost in Houston? The average cost will be between $4.10 and $6.90 per linear foot for a new gutter system.

It is best to speak with Walton Roofing for a free inspection and determine the proper cost for your home.
We offer a variety of gutter systems. Here are the options to choose from
For a perfect custom-fitted gutter system, look no further than seamless gutters! These are custom cut, on-site, to fit your home’s exact dimensions. The only seams involved are at the joints. This system minimizes damage and wear and tear to your gutters so it lasts longer and is more effective in protecting your roof.
This system is the most traditional gutter system, resembling a tube that has been cut in half. This rounded shape allows gutter cleaning to be a breeze because debris is less likely to get stuck in corners. Minimal debris means minimal wear and tear damage. This results in a longer-lasting gutter system compared to its competitors.
Box Style Gutters
This system has a rectangular shape, creating clean crisp lines against modern homes. This system is typically found in older homes, but they are still a valid option. Many historical homes lean toward this type of gutter to match the unique architectural design.
Regardless of what type of gutter system you decide on, it would be wise to consider gutter guards as well. This tremendous system aids in eliminating excess debris from cluttering up any gutter system. Be sure to ask Walton Roofing about gutter guard systems and which ones would be best for you and your home.
What are some signs of needing new gutters?
Cracks, Splits, or Separated Gutters
Many times, these happen with sectional gutter systems. The individual gutters are assembled with fasteners and can separate or deteriorate with time. Even a small crack or split will grow over time, preventing the gutter from properly doing its intended job. This gives an ideal time to upgrade to either a seamless or k-style gutter system.
Peeling Paint or Rust
Most gutters are painted or coated to protect them from the weather. When you begin to notice peeling paint, that is an indication that rust is right around the corner. Rust is an enemy of gutters as the weakened spots soon allow water to drip through. Be sure to replace your gutter system when you notice rust forming.
Pulling away from the roof
The gutters could be pulling away from the building because of too much buildup in the gutters, preventing the water to flow freely. This buildup could be from leaves, small branches, or nesting material for birds and mice. The weight of the debris and water could be too heavy for your gutters to hold, and unfortunately, they begin to pull away from the roof.
