They may seem to come secondary to your home, but gutters are actually incredibly important to the safety and functionality of your roof. Without gutters, water has a tendency to accumulate and pull around your roof, which can lead to other damages and cause premature deterioration. To avoid this and expensive repairs that will follow, we recommend investing in your gutters as much as you do with your roof. Fortunately, we are also able to offer professional gutter installation and standard gutter services.
When it comes to gutter installation, we walk you through the process and help you choose the right gutters to fit your home. There are different types of materials that you can choose for your gutters, depending on the aesthetic and budget that you have. Once you have selected the gutters that you are satisfied with, we will then have to attach them securely to the exterior of your home with adequate measurements along the perimeter of your roof. Once completed, your gutters and your roof will work hand-in-hand to prevent any leaks or damages to your home.
Like any other part of your home, gutters are not invincible to damages. If you choose gutters that are made from aluminum, they can become damaged over time due to storms or other natural wear and tear. It is important that you consider having your gutters inspected and repaired, at least, on an annual basis to ensure that there are no leaks, holes, blockages, or dents in the passageway that are preventing your gutters from filtering water accordingly.
Types of Gutters
There are a few different types of gutters and building materials to choose from, as mentioned previously. The most popular types of gutters are aluminum and copper. Aluminum gutters are more budget-friendly for those who want something easy and practical. Copper gutters provide a sleek and refined aesthetic and are slightly more durable than aluminum in terms of strength and capacity. Copper gutters will cost you more but could eventually save you money in the long run because they require fewer repairs and maintenance. This should not deter you from considering aluminum gutters, as they are easy to clean and highly durable for the average household.
We can also provide gutter cleaning to ensure that your gutters are always kept free from debris and excessive buildup. The process of gutter cleaning ensures that water can adequately be removed and filtered from your roof and through the gutters to the end of the spout and drained away from home. When your gutters are clogged or filled with debris, they can cause flooding and pooling around the edges of your home, which can lead to excessive water buildup that can result in further damages on the exterior of your home. You should consider cleaning your gutters at least once a year or more, depending on how quickly they fill up with debris or if they are readily exposed to overarching tree branches within your landscape.
