GG Roofer Gutter Services
Gutters play a basic, yet fundamental, role on your house. To be precise, water that flows from a pitched roof needs someplace to go. And if that happens to be down the walls, it will generate dampness in the respective rooms.
As a result, this creates an environment which is suitable for the growth of mold and rot. And in addition to damaging the structural integrity of your home, these fungi can impact the health of the occupants. What is more, water that isn’t properly channeled away from your house can reach the foundations and cause further problems which are even harder and more expensive to resolve. In the worst case scenario, this can even make the house unfit for habitation.
In order to prevent this, gutters collect the water and safely direct it where it can’t do any harm. For the aforementioned reasons, it is crucial to make sure your gutter system is functioning properly. At GG Roofers, we truly appreciate the importance of this feature and are here to ensure it works as intended. Therefore, whether you’re installing new gutters or repairing existing ones, you’ve come to the right place.
Even though it may not appear that way initially, setting up an optimal gutter system is a complicated job. First, you need to take into account all the different elements, like parapet, valley, or eaves gutters. Then you need to choose the style and material. K-style gutters are the most popular choice nowadays but you have plenty of other options. As far as the material goes, aluminum sees the most use because of its price, lightweight, and resistance to corrosion. However, you can also opt for copper, steel, zinc, etc. Furthermore, aluminum, and more rarely copper, gutters can either be regular or seamless, and that is another decision you need to make.
Then, there is the issue of gutter size and capacity. In order to make the right choice, you need to take into account the slope and size of the roof, as well as the expected rainfall.
All of this certainly makes for one complicated process. However, GG Roofers are more than up to the task. With our expertise and experience, we’ll help you make all the right choices when designing the gutter system and then put everything into place.
If installed properly, your gutters should last a long time. However, they are not indestructible and will require repairs every now and again.
For example, falling leaves and other debris can clog up your gutters. While you can do some of the cleanings on your own, specialized equipment is required to safely unclog out-of-reach sections.
Harsh weather, such as storms or heavy rain, can loosen parts of your gutter system or even detach parts of it completely. In this case, we can tighten the fasteners and replace the missing sections.
Finally, after enough time has passed, leaks become inevitable. Wear and tear, rust, and structural damage are all potential causes. If your gutters aren’t seamless, these joints are a pronounced weak spot. Whatever the case, no leak is beyond GG Roofers.
Because of their location on your house, repairing gutters can be a dangerous task. That’s why it’s best to leave it to trained professionals who can do it safely and with guaranteed success. GG Roofers offer exactly that, with top-notch speed and prices that won’t break the bank.
