Gutter & Downspouts
Seamless Gutters to The Rescue
The purpose of seamless gutters (or any type gutter system for that matter) is to collect water (rain) from the roofing area and disperse the water away from your home. Properly configured downspouts (leaders, drain pipes) are very essential. A faulty guttering system can contribute to damage to Soffit & Fascia, Shingles, Building Foundations, Driveways, Walkways, Landscaping.
Guttering systems require maintenance to insure protection for your home. Make sure your gutters are free from debris, leaves, granules from shingles or birds nest. The extreme exposure to nature can also cause sealant failures. Snow & Ice can loosen fasteners and should be repaired immediately to prevent costly repairs down the road.
There are many different gutter materials to choose from, including steel, aluminum, vinyl, copper. Many types of gutters (steel and vinyl in particular) are sold in 10′ lengths and require dozens of seams fastened with slip fittings, each one is a weak spot and a potential leak site. Another alternative well worth considering is the installation of the aluminum type seamless gutter. Seamless gutters must be fabricated on-site by a professional contractor using a very expensive gutter machine.

What is a roofing system?
A roofing system is the assembled components of a roof of a structure. Core components include decking, underlayment, drip edges, shingles, vents, soffits and fascia. Roofing systems including parts that are compatible with one another and installed at the same time increase the durability and integrity of the roof system to withstand sun, water, rain and other weather conditions.
