Maintenance Free Leafless Gutter System MN
For many people, a common spring chore is hauling the ladder out of the garage, putting on a pair of gloves, and picking all the leaves out of the rain gutters. Clogged gutters can cause foundation damage, wood rot, black mold, basement leaks, shingle and roof damage.
It may be hard to believe, but a handful of clogged leaves or twigs or an out-of-place bird’s nest can create major problems, resulting in damage that can run into the thousands of dollars.
Gutters are designed to run the rainwater away from the homes foundation. If your rain gutters and downspouts are working properly they will prevent water damage and basement flooding by re-routing water a safe distance away from your foundation.
Having clean rain gutters can be made much easier if you have a gutter protection system in place. By installing leafless gutters right over your existing gutters, you can let rain water in while keeping troublesome leaf debris out.
Gutter Colors To Match Your Home
One of the concerns that many homeowners have when considering installing gutters has to do with appearance. Gutters and downspouts come in different styles, sizes, and materials, as well as many different colors.
Many styles of gutters have been used over the years of home and building construction, but today the most common are the Half-round Seamless Gutters and the K-Style Seamless Gutters. The half-round are more common in older construction, and since the 1960’s the K-style are the most common. K-style gutters have a crown molding appearance that gives a framed look to the roof and exterior walls of the home, providing a better fitted appearance for today’s architectural trends. Both have advantages and disadvantages. Newer fabrication technologies have made both affordable.
