Gutter options for your home
You may be wondering what the most efficient and economical option is for your home and gutters. Here are some commonly asked gutter questions:
How do I know if my gutters need replacement or repair?
There are several key signs to keep an eye out for:
- Look for sagging areas in the gutter along your roof line. This could indicate that your spikes, hangers, or screws are not fastened properly.
- Rain falling through seams or a pulling apart at the seam could also be a tell tale sign. -Make sure the gutters are level and that they are not tilted down.
- Look for rain that is getting behind your gutters, this can quickly rot out your fascia board.
- Check to see if there is staining on the gutters from water overflow or rust anywhere on galvanized steel systems.
A cleaning should generally be performed twice a year, in the spring and in the fall. Failure to do so could result in buildup of debris, which can cause your gutters to not work properly. If you have any doubts about your gutters being clean, damaged, or working efficiently, call us right away; we will be delighted to come to your home for a free inspection and estimate.
What gutter material is right for my home?
There are many factors to consider when choosing the material for your gutter system. Think about what style you want. Your budget for the project will also be important.
The options are:
- Galvanized steel
- Stainless steel
- Wood covered with metal or membrane
Wood is generally reserved for restoration work and has risks to consider, such as wood rot and difficulty to repair. Depending on the species of wood, prices can be steep.
Copper is also usually only used in restoration. It looks gorgeous and never rusts, but can be a little on the pricey side.
Stainless steel is a more expensive option, but has benefits. People like that it stays shiny for years and is resistant to rust.
Galvanized steel is the most economical option up front, but eventually will rust through. The thickness won’t change the rust issue; it will certainly need replacement at some point in the future.
Aluminum is well priced and will last a long time. It has a clean appearance and will remain rust free. This is the most common choice among homeowners.
Vinyl is also an affordable option that can look great on your home. Though you’ll need to consider that vinyl is damaged more easily from strong winds and the sun’s rays. It can become cracked over time, and strong winds can tear pieces off.
What could happen if I left my gutters unattended?
Gutters that don’t work appropriately will allow water to fall at the base of your home, eroding the foundation and opening it up to the possibility of more problems. It can cause your basement to leak, your roof to rot, and your attic to mold. Gutters are a necessary product to help your home outlive your mortgage. We at Lynchburg Roofing want to provide you with quality workmanship and top-notch product to give you the peace of mind you deserve in your home.
Only one inch of rainfall on an averaged sized house produces approximately 500 gallons of water. When gutters are the first line of defense for your home against the many problems neglected gutter systems cause, the investment seems trivial.
What questions should I ask my contractor?
We want to make sure you get the gutters you want. Please ask the installer some of these questions. We are happy to hear your thoughts on the system you had in mind.
