Your Gutters And Roofing Work Together To Solve Water Run-Off Issues
Your roof isn’t just simply a layer of shingles thrown on top of your home, it’s a full-functioning system that includes sheathing (your roof deck), water and ice barrier, flashing, ventilation (soffits and roof vents), and more. One of the most important parts of your roofing system is your gutters. As water runs down your roof, it runs into your gutters, which then channel the water into your drainage system and away from your home. This protects your home and foundation from any water damage due to pooling water.
If you find that you have a buildup of water around the perimeter of your house, usually the first thing we suggest checking is your gutters. You may have a clogged downspout, or your gutters might be broken or damaged causing water to overflow where it shouldn’t.
Because your gutters are so important to the overall health of your roof (and your home) we offer gutter replacement services along with our roof replacements. If during a roof replacement project we find that your gutter system is not in good working order we’ll let you know that your gutters should probably be replaced and this can be worked into the overall cost of your roofing project.
Gutter Maintenance & Repair
Your gutters were designed to catch water and divert it into your downspouts and out into your drain tiles or drainage system. Gutters are very efficient but along with the water they catch comes a ton of debris. Leaves, small sticks, and other organic debris will flow into your gutters and cause clogging where the downspout meets the gutter.
If your gutters are clogged for long periods of time the water can overflow or pool around your home where you don’t want it to. If your gutters are clogged and the water inside freezes, then your gutters are going to be full, very heavy, and this is a recipe for disaster.
If your gutters weren’t installed properly with a good quality hanging or fastening system they can pull away from the fascia board or even pull the fascia board away from your roof. This creates another invitation for water to enter into your home. Keep your gutters clean!
