The Importance of Gutters
One of the most important, but often overlooked, components in preserving the appearance of your home and in protecting it against deterioration are the gutters.
Gutters, along with downspouts, are essential in funneling rainwater away from your home's foundation. Consequently, they help prevent soil erosion, which can lead to undermining your home's foundation. They also help prevent exterior wood from rotting.
It's simple, really. Seamless gutters are – as their name implies – made without a seam. That means that there is one less weak point which can lead to leakage, wood rot, mildew, or worse. Eliminating this weak point has two benefits. It both protects your home and gives you peace of mind. In short, seamless are superior to every type, and that's good for you.
We carry both 5” and 6” seamless gutters in Tuscaloosa.
Don't Forget About Downspouts
Downspouts, the other part of the rainwater removal system, are often overlooked. However, they route rainwater down to ground level and then away from your home's foundation, which is important.
We make sure that these are properly attached and strategically placed.
Gutter Guards Make Sense
Even if you don't have trees near your house, leaves can get blown onto your roof from neighbors' yards. These leaves then wash down into your gutters. Gutters that become clogged with leaves cannot perform properly. As a result, they put the integrity of your house at risk.
You can remove the leaves from the gutters or you can hire someone to do that for you. However, there's a simpler, less expensive solution: gutter guards. These screen panels attach to the open portion at the tip of the gutter. They prevent leaves from lodging in the gutter, while still allowing water to filter through. They don't eliminate the need for periodic leaf removal. However, they dramatically reduce the frequency of this task.
Maintenance Is Important
Even quality materials that are properly installed can fall victim to the ravages of nature and the passage of time. Consequently, you may experience gutters pulling away from your house's fascia (trim) or other issues that require attention. That's why the experts at Mark's Remodeling and House Repair Services stand ready to conduct periodic preventative maintenance.
In conclusion, we hope that you will see the benefits of calling on our team of experts in gutters in Tuscaloosa. You'll be glad that you did!
