Does my home need gutters?
Rain gutters perform an important function of draining hundreds of gallons of water off the roof and away from the foundation of your house. Here in North Texas we understand the importance of foundation protection. Since gutters catch rain right off the roof they prevent the rain runoff from splashing against your windows and siding. In addition gutters help prevent water damage that sometimes seeps into your home, causing ceiling and wall damage.
How much will it cost?
Pricing varies, determined by difficulty of installation; e.g., pitch of roof, ground conditions surrounding the home, and if the home has more than one story. The best and most accurate quote will be one done at your home with one of our skilled estimators.
What is flashing/drip edge and do I need it?
Flashing is a steel or aluminum strip of metal that is folded over the top of the inside rain gutter. The benefits of flashing are added protection against water damage and dry rot. Flashing will also give our installers the ability to control water flow and prevent standing water in the rain gutters.
If I have leaf protection installed, will I still have to clean my roof and how often?
Roofs need to be cleaned if you have standing debris. We recommend blowing off your roof twice a year or as needed to keep the roof clean. The gutter screens will need to be maintained with a yearly cleaning or blowing to remove the dirt and debris from the screen.
How often do I need to clean my rain gutters?
Gutters should be cleaned as often as needed. Most of our customers have their rain gutters cleaned one to two times per year. The frequency of cleaning depends on the surroundings of your home.
Does my home need gutter screens?
Gutter screens are designed to keep leaves and debris out of your gutter system and keep water flowing through your rain gutters and downspouts. They help prevent overflowing gutters that will lead to dry rot and lengthen the life of your gutters. Installation of gutter screens will not keep debris off your roof. Depending on the amount of debris that falls onto your roof you will need to sweep or blow off your roof and gutter screens from time to time.
Will gutter screens fit over my existing gutters?
In most cases gutter screens will fit onto existing rain gutters. Your estimator will help you to determine what size will fit your home at the time of the estimate.
