Your gutter system is built to blend into the exterior of your home and not be noticed. While they are not exactly hidden, you may not even notice them when you are looking at a home across the street, or on a Sunday afternoon drive. You may not think about your own gutter system very often either, until it is time to climb the ladder and clean them out periodically! Your gutters perform a very important function – to allow water to flow away from your home so that it does not pool on your roof or property and cause costly water damage. You should make sure to take note of your gutter systems Read Full Post

Snow is just a part of life in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. There is really nothing to do about it, just prepare.

On average, the Minneapolis area gets approximately 32 inches of rain each year and more than 52 inches of snow. This translates into more than 110 days each year with precipitation. Of course, we try to avoid the rain and snow, staying inside during heavy precipitation, using umbrellas, rain jackets and snow gear to protect us from the elements. However, the exterior of our homes take a beating over time. Every single thunderstorm, snowstorm or summer rain event falls on our roof and hits the siding. Our homes are built to withstand this weather, and your roof, gutter system and siding work together Read Full Post

Your gutter system plays an extremely important role in protecting your home. Many do not realize just how much water is pushed away from your roof and foundation by your gutters. Here is an example. During a heavy thunderstorm, it is not uncommon to get 1-2 inches of rain in a short period of time. That translates into 500-1000 gallons of water down your gutters. The tub in your bathroom only holds about 40 gallons of water total, so give that some thought. That is a lot of water! It is critical to make sure that your gutter system is working well so that it can push all of that water away, in order to prevent water damage inside your home and around your foundation.
