Put An End To Recurring Gutter Issues

Nearly every area of the country experienced quite a bit of rain this Spring. While rain can put a damper on the day, especially for a business like ours whose employees spend a majority of their day outdoors, it can also be useful for finding out how effectively your gutters are working.

After the next big rain event at your home or business, take a moment to look inside your gutter. There should not be any standing water. If you find there IS, it’s a good time to figure out what is not working with your gutters in order to prevent costly damage down the road. If water is not draining properly, this can cause backups and eventually roof damage.

Sometimes standing water may be a result of a clogged gutter or downspout, and might be a simple fix. The reality is, this issue will likely be recurring, as leaves and debris are a constant problem. This is why we believe so strongly in our product- a product designed to prevent issues like this from the start! Our system (http://www.guttershutter.com/systems/) will help any home or business owner keep their gutter clog free, and draining properly.

If you’d like to save yourself work in the longterm, give GutterShutter a call today for a free estimate! Our experts will install the best possible system for your home or business. And if you haven’t yet, take a moment and check out this video of our process.

Gutters & Fire Resistance

gutter1

As we approach summer, it’s important to start thinking about outdoor fire hazards and how to prevent them. Did you know that unguarded gutters can pose major fire risks during dry periods?

Gutters play a role in providing a means of collecting and directing rainwater from the roof into downspouts, and then away from the house. This helps reduce the amount of water in the soil that can enter the crawlspace or basement and result in moisture-related performance problems such as those from mold and wood decay fungi.

Combustible debris such as leaves and pine needles can accumulate in gutters, especially from nearby or overhanging trees. Due to difficulty in accessing upper stories of a home, gutters two and three floors high are even more problematic, since they will be difficult to clean out on a regular basis. If ignited, combustible debris in the gutter will expose the edge of the roof covering, typically the fascia and or roof sheathing. Depending on the condition of the wood and presence (or absence) of metal flashing at the edge of the roof, debris in the gutter may make it easier for fire to enter the attic. Metal flashing at the roof edge will provide additional protection to the roof edge and therefore is a recommended detail.

It’s Time For A Spring Gutter Audit

1Unit.jpg

With the arrival of Spring, it’s a great time to perform a gutter audit. There are any number of things that can cause drainage issues, and it’s important to catch them early.

Are your gutters clogged? Take time to clear them, top to bottom, and run water through them to be sure they’re not blocked. A lot of debris could have built up throughout the Winter, and Spring will likely bring even more.

As you run water through to test for gutter blockages, it’s also a good time to check for leaks. As water runs through the gutter, check all sides to be sure there are no leaks. Now is the time to find and solve a problem like that before it’s too late. Pay particular attention to any water that is getting behind your gutter and against the fascia.

Are your downspouts pointing correctly, and directing water away from your home? Improper placement can result in basement leaks and/or siding damage. Don’t forget, these can get clogged too, and cause problems if water is allowed to pool near your foundation.

Lastly, take note of the types of trees you (and your close neighbors) have, and remember to keep an eye on them as they shed items onto your roof. Certain trees can be a nuisance, and are worth keeping an eye on!

As usual, any of our estimators is available to come out and perform a free evaluation of your current gutter system. They’ll make qualified recommendations, and get you on your way to the best possible draining system for your home!

Plus, you’ll never need to do a gutter audit or climb a dangerous ladder to clear debris ever again with the GutterShutter system!
