GUTTERS

Imagine rain pounding your roof and torrents spill over the eaves. You can't reach the front door without passing beneath a mini-Niagara. Before the next heavy rain, it may be a good idea to consider how your house will weather it.  This brings us to the subject of gutters.

Gutters are not exactly glamorous. However, they handle a critical task of routing the runoff from a very large surface, your roof, to proper drainage away from the house.  By doing this, they protect your house, siding, windows, doors and foundation from water
damage.

Though most gutters are installed on existing roofs, adding them during re-roofing simplifies installation and allows them to be fully integrated into the roof system. If you’re thinking about installing a new roof, your timing couldn't be better!

We use the aluminum hidden hangers with 1 1/2 inch self-tapping screws which are installed every two feet.  The gutter system is installed under the drip edge preventing water from going between gutter and fascia which would eventually cause rotting. 

Plan to clean gutters at least twice a year, more often if the roof is directly beneath trees.  If your roof is higher than a single story or you are unsure of your job safety, we suggest you hire a professional.
