Gutters provide a functional way to channel water around your home, and at J&B West Roofing and Construction, we believe they can contribute to a stunning roof and overall home aesthetic.
Getting Gutters Right
Your home’s gutters work tirelessly to move water away from your shingles and off of your roof and siding, prevent damage, mold and mildew. By placing them in the right locations with properly installed downspouts and other components, a proper gutter will help extend the life of your roof.
Free-flowing gutters are part of an overall roof protection system and they should be consistently maintained throughout the year. Simple cleanings can help you avoid blockages and water overflows. Proper installation is crucial because gutters set too far out or improperly placed can send water in wrong directions or into the surrounding materials, such as fascia boards, and cause them to rot.
Do You Need a Replacement?
Over time your gutters may become damaged by storms, winds and weather. Blockages and dents on warping can turn your functional gutter into a funnel for water to find its way in your walls. J&B West Roofing and Construction offers an inspection service to keep your home structurally sound.
Precaution is our main focus. Some of the things we’ll look for include:
- Areas where water may be collecting on the ground near your foundation
- Broken piping, connections and fasteners
- Clogs, breaks, holes and cracks
- Disconnected downspouts
- Gaps in any part of the system
- Loose sections
- The presence of mold or water stains
Many homeowners can perform basic gutter inspections themselves, but we recommend you always do this from a safe location.
