Your gutters may not be flashy but they are one of the most important parts of your home’s water management system. The gutter system catches rainwater and prevents it from damaging your siding and other parts of your home. To enjoy your gutters’ protection, however, you need to work with a professional gutter installation company. Exterior Source explains why:
Protection for Existing Roof Warranties
Poor installation of your gutter system can put parts of your home at risk of water damage, especially your roof. In some cases, mistakes by the gutter installer can damage the roof and void your roof’s warranty.
Look for contractors who have been installing gutters for many years. They have the skills and experience to avoid common workmanship errors.
Work with a professional for your gutter installation to get the most out of your new gutter system. Installation mistakes can lead to problems once it rains. For example, your gutters might not be properly sloped. A gutter system needs to have a slight incline to allow rain to flow into your downspouts. Without this incline, rain can pool in your gutters and eventually overflow and damage your landscaping and siding.
Functional Gutter System
Installation mistakes can decrease your gutter system’s potential life span. For example, poorly installed gutters tend to clog more often. Pooling water can cause damage to the gutters’ material, which can lead to gutter cracks. A reputable gutter company will prevent this from happening by double-checking their installation and making sure you are completely satisfied with the quality of their work.
