Your home’s gutter system helps collect and funnel water off of your roof and away from your home, preventing water damage, rot, and leaks. However, when your gutters aren’t maintained correctly or get old and worn, they won’t work as well as they should, putting your home at risk. Trusted Veterans Restoration repairs gutters and installs new gutter systems to protect your home and keep it looking beautiful.
Why are gutters important?
Water is one of the most powerful and destructive natural forces. After all, the Colorado River formed the Grand Canyon and makes the famous canyon a little deeper every year. Even with the best possible roofing and siding, rain, snow, and ice will wear away at the protective layers covering your home.
This is where an effective gutter system comes in. Gutters collect rain and melting snow and ice, routing it away from your home. Gutters are essential even if you have a pitched roof, as the water will flow off your roof and straight down the external walls of your home, seeping behind your siding or accumulating into puddles around the base of your home and damaging your foundation.
What are seamless gutters?
Seamless gutters only have seams at the inside and outside corners where the gutter system wraps around the angles of your roof. They’re siliconed for water-resistance and attached to your home using a hidden screw system. Seamless gutter systems provide a wide range of benefits including:
- Reduced risk of leaks
- A less noticeable gutter system
- Never needs painting
- Custom made to fit your home precisely
- Available in multiple colors
- Installable in a single day
Seamless gutters are usually made from aluminum or copper and are treated with silicon on the insides and enamel on the outsides for greater water-resistance.
How can I protect my gutters?
You can extend the life of your gutters with routine maintenance to clear away leaves and other debris that can get trapped and cause a blockage in your gutter system. Debris blockages cause water to pool and eventually overflow, damaging the gutter, and interfering with the integrity of your home. If you have damaged gutters that don’t need to be replaced, Trusted Vets can repair your gutter system and restore the protection it provides to your home.
