Sometimes exterior home renovation is more practical than it is cosmetic. Having rain gutters installed is a home renovation you may want to go without, but it’s an important part of protecting your home from water damage. That’s why Home Fix offers gutter installation in addition to its other exterior remodeling services.
Call on the Home Fix pros if you’re ready to protect your home with gutter installation, and get your estimate today.
How do gutters work?
Gutters are one of your home’s simplest and most important systems. Placed along the edge of the roof, they catch water as it runs down the slant of the roof. Once water begins to pool, the gutters carry it to the downspout, a pipe that runs vertically down the side of the house, where it gets diverted from the house underground. Diverting water away from your house keeps it from pooling around your foundation and basement, where it could cause damage.
Prevent Damage with Home Gutter Installation
Most of us would like to think we know water damage when we see it, but homes that go without a gutter system for extended periods of time likely have water damage that’s difficult to spot or completely hidden. When rainwater falls directly off the edge of the roof, it pools close to your foundation and often drips down the home’s siding, causing all manner of problems. Homes without gutters are vulnerable to:
- Foundation damage, such as cracks.
- Water pooling around the home and causing flooding.
- Siding damage and ground erosion from water flowing down the siding.
- Landscaping damage.
- Mold and pests that thrive in damp environments.
An existing gutter system that’s neglected or improperly installed is just as dangerous as having no gutters. Clogged or poorly draining gutters can allow water to collect under shingles and cause water leaks, mold and other roof damage.
Don’t let your home be damaged over time because it’s missing an essential protective measure. Rather than paying more for major water damage repair, call on Home Fix for affordable gutter installation and rest easy when it rains.
The Best Rain Gutter Installation Company
The experts at Home Fix want to provide you with the best gutter system to fit your needs. That’s why we offer seamless gutter installation. Traditional gutters come in segments that must be assembled in parts, which can leave them prone to leaks and blockages. Seamless gutters are installed as one long piece, preventing leaks and clogging and leaving homeowners with lower maintenance requirements. Because seamless gutters make for a stronger system, they’re attractive to potential buyers.
If you currently have a gutter system that’s damaging your home’s roof, don’t worry! The Home Fix pros also specialize in roof repair, so we can also return your roof to its proper state before installing your new gutter system.
