Stop Water From Damaging Your Property
Gutters are essential for any structure with a sloped roof. A properly installed gutter system collects water runoff from the roof and diverts it away from the structure. Seamless gutters require far less maintenance than standard gutters. These gutters are typically formed from steel, vinyl, aluminum or copper so they can accommodate any climate and complement the aesthetics of a building. Seamless gutters are not only functional, they’re aesthetically pleasing as well. Since they’re made of a single piece of metal with no seams, they are not prone to leaks. This is a significant upgrade over the competition’s installations and another factor that sets Cantrell Roofing apart.
The use of gutters ensures that water never harms a structure or causes unnecessary damage. Water that is allowed to flow over the same portion of an exterior will eventually start to erode and deteriorate the area. In the case of a home, this normally happens around the foundation and can cause small cracks to form in the foundation. If the water is allowed to persist, the foundation will become unstable. Gutters should be set up so that all water runoff leads directly into a gutter. The gutters will be designed so that the water is routed safely away from the structure. This allows for proper draining and ensures that the structure never suffers damage related to water runoff during a storm. If gutters are installed improperly, damaged or not present, a structure may experience the following: Foundation damage Basement flooding Interior flooding Exterior damage Cantrell Roofing can help you select the right material and color to ensure that your new gutters match your home’s aesthetics.
