The Indicators of When to Install New Gutters

While fall is the time when leaves change to vibrant red and gold colors, it’s also necessary to ensure proper seamless gutter installation. Gutters can easily get neglected and forgotten. Once leaves begin to fall, without adequate gutter guards, leaves can prohibit proper gutter water flow.

It is essential to address potential problems before they lead to broader issues and cause significant damage. To ensure the appropriate protection against leaves and the change of seasons, it’s a good idea to consider a gutter repair or replacement service, especially if the gutters and downspouts are less than 6 inches.  


What Happens When Gutters Are Clogged?

Gutters protect your home by channeling water away from your roof and foundation. Improperly installed or maintained gutters are more prone to clogging, which can significantly damage your home, including basement flooding, leaks, and mold growth.

If large amounts of water flow too close to your home, it could erode the soil and cause foundation issues, leading to broader structural issues that are commonly costly. Additionally, harmful mold growth from water damage can risk your family’s health over time. However, proper gutter installation can prevent these issues from developing.  


How Can I Protect My Gutters?  

If your gutters often clog, you might want to consider replacing them to expand their capacity.

Traditionally, most gutters are approximately 4 or 5 inches in width. Upgrading to 6-inch gutters to ensure the water can continuously discharge out of the downspouts is a great solution to prevent debris from becoming stuck. If you live where there is a lot of sleet, rain, or snowfall, investing in 6-inch gutters could save you money, time, and hassle.  

Additionally, some people choose to install gutter guards for added protection. Furthermore, many gutter covers on the market don’t offer the defense claimed. One of the best options available is Leaf Solutions micro-mesh gutter covers. However, Leaf Solutions covers are the costliest! 

Selecting the Right Gutters for Your Home

Since gutters are one of the first defenses against water damage, choosing a high-quality gutter is essential.

When hiring a gutter installation company, you should never cut costs by installing the least expensive pre-made version of a gutter. Proper installation is just as necessary. We recommend trusting a professional gutter installation contractor who prioritizes the service quality for your installation.

Adding Gutter Color!

Can changing the gutter color add a significantly modern feel? It’s become increasingly popular to use gutters that contrast. Accented gutter colors can accentuate home architecture visual cues and add visual depth to the home. Gutters are available in various colors, including white, almond, brown, bronze, and black, allowing you to match exterior windows and doors perfectly.
