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 to push the water away from your home so that it does not cause permanent and costly water damage.
Gutter System Upgrade
When your home was built, a standard gutter system was likely installed. It is very common to see these standard gutters, which are normally five or six inches and are not usually seamless, which means that they can come apart over time, leak. In general, they also have an opening at the top for rainwater to enter. However, this opening also allows leaves, debris, dirt and other residue in, which over time can clog the gutters. If you have standard gutters, you are probably well aware of this issue and have to clean them out yourself or pay to have them cleaned. If you neglect your gutters, water can pool onto your roof and cause a leak or (in the winter) an ice dam.
Minnesota Leafless Gutters can install a new gutter system on your home that eliminates the need to EVER clean your gutters. That’s right, you will never have to climb a ladder again or pay someone to clean those gutters. Seamless gutters can be installed that only allow water to flow inside, no leaves or dirt can get inside. This means you do not have to worry in the middle of a thunderstorm or a winter storm whether water is flowing or backing up on your roof or creating a problem for your foundation. Seamless gutters are an excellent investment in your home and can be built to fit the contours of your home. With many color and material choices, you will never regret the upgrade.
