Gutters are exterior components responsible for the proper flow of the rain or snowmelt from your roof away from the foundation. These channels protect your home from water infiltration, which is why keeping them in good shape is very important.
The problem is that most homeowners tend to neglect their gutters. For many people, a busy schedule makes maintenance a burden. It doesn’t help cleaning gutters is tedious and dangerous.
Homecraft® Inc., the premier gutter contractor, discusses ways to prevent the most common gutter issues, and how you can minimize the work involved in doing so.
While all kinds of gutters have the same purpose, they come in different forms. For years, manufacturers have been developing new units that can provide better performance. Seamless gutters, for instance, reduce the risk of water leaks. Their nonsectional design prevents water from escaping through the seams.
At Homecraft Inc., we install heavy-duty seamless gutters made of aluminum. Instead of using nails, we use hidden hangers with screws. You can choose from 14 colors for long-lasting beauty.
Gutters left bare are prone to debris buildup. Leaves, twigs and other items can block the system’s opening, resulting in water pooling. The accumulated water in this area can spill over the sides and saturate the soil near your home’s foundation. That can lead to other problems that may compromise the structural integrity of your entire house.
One way to prevent this problem is by installing a gutter protection system like Leaf Relief®. This gutter add-on helps your system stay clean all year round.
