Gutters are used to direct water from your roof. Water left standing on your roof can lead to structural damage and leaks into your home’s interior. They also help to deter water from basements, walks and patios. Having a gutter system in place will allow you to walk around your home’s exterior after rain and not worry about water falling on you. They help to keep the exterior of your home clean by keeping mud and sand as well as water from splashing onto your siding, windows and doors.
By protecting your home from water they also protect the color from fading. If your home has brick or concrete, this is a very important aspect. You can also count on gutters to protect wood decks, doors and garage doors from excessive water damage. Diverting water from concrete slabs will help to prevent them from sinking and cracking.
Having a working gutter system installed will help you to prolong the life and structure of your home by keeping water and other damaging properties away from areas that they may harm.
Gutter Sales: Signs that you should look into a repair or replacement of your gutter system:
- Leaking Gutters: Are you annoyed by gutters that leak at the seams? Most gutters are installed with prefabricated pieces that have three seams on each corner. The more seams you have the more likely you are to get a leak.
- Loose Gutters: Loose gutters can allow rain to collect near your foundation. Gutter cleaning, inspections and repairs generally require using an extension ladder, which can present a potentially dangerous situation. It is recommended that you use a roofing contractor or gutter service to perform this task.
- Inadequate Downspouts: The number of downspouts is inadequate on many homes. As a general rule, a downspout should be provided for every 40 feet of guttering.
- Clogged Gutters: Clogged gutters are most often caused by leaves or needles from overhanging trees. Installing gutter guards, or LeafX, on the top of your gutters to keep out debris is highly recommended. You should have your gutters cleaned at least once a year if you choose not to go with a LeafX system, contact Roof Crafters for all your gutter sales needs.
