Gutters collect rain water and are in place to guide excessive amounts of water away from the house. The reason is preventing water infiltration through your foundation.
If an excessive amount of water saturate the ground next to your home, you risk the chances of foundation destruction during the winter months as water expands when changing to ice.
Water can also filter under your footings and up through your basement floor costing you a finished basement. Unless you have paid for additional flood insurance, the normal home owner's insurance policy does not cover flood damage, leaving you the headache and preventable costs of replacing flooring, insulation, drywall, and trim.
It is best to take all necessary steps to protect your basement from rainwater.
Ordinary gutters are joined together every 10 or 12 feet, and are prone to leaking through those joints.
Seamless gutters are made on site with a machine that makes seamless gutter in lengths long enough to span every length of your house.
With seamless gutters you can be sure your gutters are performing the way they should.
For even better results, we can install gutter protection to eliminate clogging and risky gutter clean-out.
