Most of us today don’t give gutters a second thought until they’re clogged, ripped from the fascia by ice or high winds or even if you have water in your basement. At least twice a year you should inspect them, looking for obstructions or damage. To help you out, let’s look at the 6 main components of a gutter system. First is the gutter, then the end cap, fascia bracket, downspout, downspout bracket and the elbow. Now imagine getting 1″ of rainfall. Doesn’t seem like a lot, however the average roof will have to manage 1900 gallons of water! Is your gutter system up to the challenge?
If you suspect any problems with the gutters on your house, call us for a free inspection. If we see an issue, we will also provide you with the most reliable service for the best possible price! Call us today for your free inspection.

Can you find the problems with the pictures on the left? It’s quite obvious when you look at the pictures on the right!
Here are 2 examples of a downspout strap or bracket. The one on the left shows an insufficient masonry nail holding it in place. The one on the right is the proper way, using a Hilti nail and washer to secure it which resists high winds or bumping into it with your lawnmower.
Rotten fascia is another common problem homeowners run into when gutters are not installed properly. Avoid this costly repair by hiring the right company the first time. Also, seasonal cleaning will prevent moisture buildup at the roof line.
Not only did the missing downspout cause wall damage, it also weakened the foundation of the home. Good thing we caught it before major repairs were necessary. The picture on the right shows how this would have saved the homeowner a lot of time and expense.
What is stopping the moisture from penetrating the house on the left? Nothing. The picture on the right show the proper way to prepare a house for siding, or any exterior covering. The Tyvek will stop moisture and wind from damaging the structure.
