Replacement Gutters Protect Your Home
Homeowners often neglect their gutters because they don’t see their importance. Gutters shouldn’t be neglected because they are an integral part of your roofing system and protect your entire home. Failing gutters can cause soil erosion which can impact your foundation and landscaping. Clogged gutters can cause roof leaks and hasten the deterioration of your shingles. Replacement gutters from Flagstone Roofing & Exteriors can protect your home and increase curb appeal.
If your home has hail damage or wind damage, be sure to have your insurance adjustor check your gutters. Hail that damages roofs and siding also damages gutters. Just like the rest of your home’s exterior, your gutters are covered by homeowner’s insurance. If they are damaged, make sure the company you call for your roof repair is an experienced gutter installer.
Signs You Need New Gutters
If you don’t have gutters at all, you should consider having them installed. Gutters move water off the roof and away from your home – rather than onto your landscaping and under your foundation. If you have gutters, the next time it rains, look at them. If they are overflowing or leaking, you may need new ones. Before or after the next rain, walk around your house and see if they are sagging, bent or pulling away from your home. Look for visible rust or missing sections of downspouts. All these are indicators that it’s time to call the professional gutter installers at Flagstone Roofing.
Older gutters and those from most home improvement stores are generally sectional gutters. The best gutters are seamless. They are less prone to leakage and look superior to sectional products. Seamless gutters are made on-site with less waste and in a color that coordinates with your home.
Flagstone Roofing may recommend new gutters with your roof replacement. There are two main reasons for this: either your current gutters are failing or the work we’re doing on your home requires us to remove your current gutters. Sometimes part of the roof replacement entails replacing fascia and soffits. If this is the case with your home, we’ll be happy to explain why your current gutters shouldn’t be re-attached.
