GUTTERS

Rain Gutters and Seamless Gutters

If you are like most homeowners you probably take your gutters for granted. They have a tendency to be the forgotten part of your home since they are not as prominent as say your roof or even your siding. But since gutters are really like a part of your roofing system. They are what channels the water away from your home so that water does not find it’s way into your home.

The gutters “job” is to make sure that the water does not find its way into your walls after exiting your homes roof. And they also are very important in channeling the water away from your home’s foundation so that it doesn’t end in your basement or crawl space. So having gutters that are malfunctioning is as bad as having no gutters at all! Although gutters are not necessarily high on a homeowners list they are actually some of the best money spent since they can save you money from the other problems that can arise from faulty seamless gutters.

What are gutter guards and do I need them?

Gutter guards are a relatively new invention that can prevent your gutters from getting clogged with dirt and debris (leaves, pine needles, etc.). Over the years this has become an industry within itself. You can find all kinds of companies or do-it-yourself products that can help keep your gutters clean. Having clogged gutters is akin to having no gutters since the water will not run freely and more than likely will overflow and run down your home’s exterior wall or worst yet find it’s way into the interior of your home by finding a crack or other opening. So whether you need them or not is a choice. Do you want to have to climb a ladder to clear out the debris? Or do you do a preventive measure such as gutter guards to do the work for you?

Gutter guards are a relatively inexpensive product that does what you probably don’t really want to deal with. The stuff that gathers in your gutters can get pretty disgusting if you are not doing regular maintenance on them. We recommend having them installed and we have them installed on our own homes.
