Gutter Services from Gerlock Construction LLCOur dedicated crew of gutter specialists makes their expertise evident on each job. Offering many years of superior protection, your new gutter system will also provide heightened curb appeal. If you intend to maintain your home's value and structural integrity, gutters are absolutely necessary. In knowing this, gutters and downspouts in poor condition often cause more problems than they solve. A properly installed, high-quality gutter system is one the most important investments you can make for your home. A new gutter system directs rainwater away from your foundation, siding, and landscaping effectively, maintaining your home's good condition.
Why Are Gutters So Important?To preserve the condition of your home, rainwater must be diverted off of your roof and away from your home. This not only prevents structural damage but also damp interior walls and mold growth. On the average roof, just one inch of rainfall equals hundreds of gallons of water or more that need to be diverted! That's a lot. Your gutters must be in optimal working condition to handle the load.
Gutter InstallationStandard grade gutters are installed in individual sections, piece by piece. This was the only available option for decades. These standard types do work, however, the joints along the length of the gutters create the conditions that cause leakage. These traditionally styled gutters are better than no gutters at all, but today you have another choice. New technologies have made seamless gutters a more affordable choice for the average customer and, once a person realizes the difference these gutters make in protection, they never look back. Our seamless gutter sections are custom-cut on the job-site to a custom fit. This allows the need for seams at only the corners of your new gutter-system, ensuring a stronger, leak-proof product. Our gutters are made of K-Style heavy-gauge material. We offer a wide variety of colors and gutter options.
Gutter CleaningIdeally, gutter systems are intended to direct all rainwater out and away from your home, allowing it to soak into the ground without damaging structures or creating annoyances. However, gutters can become blocked with leaves, branches, and other types of unwanted debris. This causes your gutters to not do their job. Having a clogged gutter is like having no gutter-system at all, or sometimes can be worse. If you have the free time to do it, cleaning your gutters will prevent this from happening. But even if you do have the time to do so, many don't, cleaning your gutters out can be dangerous. If you're not physically able or don't have the patience to do the job properly, you take the risk of injuring yourself. We at Gerlock Construction LLC will clean your gutters and downspouts by hand. We then make sure to bag up all debris that has been removed and leave your property looking spotless. While we are cleaning your gutters, our technicians will also inspect the roof of your home for damaged shingles and other signs of roof problems for no additional charge. Our team will not only do that, but will also be sure to clean the actual face of the gutters, removing any dirty streaks to restore it's original color!
When Should I Clean My Gutters?The ideal time to get your gutters cleaned is in the spring or autumn. Many are aware that the most common culprits of packed gutters are fallen leaves. But many do not yet realize that the debris that falls from trees during and after a blooming period can also severely clog your gutters. Gerlock Construction LLC does suggest that you clean your gutters at least twice a year. As a tip, we also suggest that when cleaning them during the fall season, to wait until all of the leaves have actually fallen to clean them. This will save you time, and more importantly, money!
