Gutters Damaged or Leaking?
After the roof, perhaps the second most frequently damaged feature of a home are the gutters. Aluminum gutters stand the greatest chance of damage, thanks to their relatively thin and pliable nature. Hail often causes gutters to become bent and dented, stripping paint and protective coatings off in the process.
Hail may also open cracks that were already weakened by age or corrosion. These cracks tend to form at the seams where separate sections of gutter are attached. This type of damage must be repaired or replaced quickly to prevent water leakage, which can result in issues with the foundation, leaking basements, and exterior wood rot.
Maybe it’s time for a new seamless gutter system. Maybe your gutters are just fine and simply need cleaning. Whatever the situation, Firehouse Exteriors can come to the rescue!
Many people don’t realize the value of a properly functioning gutter system. Rain gutters protect your foundation, landscaping, siding, doors, and windows.
Old gutter systems are installed in 10ft. lengths. They contract and expand with temperature changes and, over time, cracks and holes form causing leaking. Seamless metal gutter systems don’t have this problem, and will save you time and money without the expensive and time-consuming repairs that old gutters cause.
We all know cleaning your gutters is a hassle, as well as, potentially dangerous! Installing gutter guards is the solution. Gutter guards will keep your gutters from clogging up, and once installed, you’ll never have to clean your gutters again. Gutter guards are the permanent solution that will let you rest easy knowing your home is safe from the damaging effects of water.
Cleaning and Repair
All it takes is a handful of debris for your gutter system to clog, leaving your home at the mercy of the water. If you don’t have a permanent fix like gutter guards, it is important to get your gutters checked at least twice a year, so that they can be cleaned and small issues can be repaired before they turn into bigger ones.
