A lot of people don’t realize how connected everything in a house is and that when one area needs attention, if it doesn’t get fixed, more problems can pop up.

That idea is extremely true when it comes to your roof and gutter system. Even if you have the best roof in the world, if the water isn’t able to properly run off and get channeled away from your structure, then it doesn’t matter.

Homes and offices can become compromised very easily by water damage if the gutters aren’t functioning properly. There are many different factors that can lead to problems. But if water gets behind your walls and into the wood frame of your house, the problems will just get worse.

Bugs love to dig and burrow into moist wood and damp areas. Make sure the water is flowing away from you home. Do you have a clogged gutter? Don’t spend long hours on a ladder trying to clear out the debris and leaves from your gutter many times throughout the year—get a permanent fix.

One-piece gutter systems will allow all of the plant matter and debris to slide over the gutter, but not inside. Then, no matter how hard it rains, or no matter what is being blow around by a storm, your home or commercial building will stay intact.

Get the guaranteed gutter system that will never clog—get LeafGuard.

Here are a few tips to maintain your roof and gutters now so you can keep cozy through the winter months.
  • Check your roof for any missing or loose shingles
  • If you haven't done so, check your roof and gutters for signs of dents and damage from hail storms.  There may be small tears or holes, in which case you should contact your insurance company about replacing those damaged shingles.
  • If you have a chimney, check the flashing (weatherproofing materials installed around chimneys) to keep melting ice and snow out of your home
  • Check your attic or upper ceiling for any leaks; if you find an area of concern, check it again immediately after rain to see if those area are damp 
  • Add insulation to your attic or crawlspace to to prevent ice dams from forming on the roof

Are you thinking about starting a new construction project? Well, the good news is, you are adding an addition or renovating an area of your home or business that needs attention.

Committing to a new construction project is half the battle. The next thing to remember is that a little foresight can go a long way to adding longevity to your structure.

It starts with keeping everything dry. If the walls, infrastructure and foundation become saturated, you are going to be dealing with more construction down the road.

You don’t have to deal with water issues or a compromised site—get LeafGuard installed right away, even if you are getting a new roof.

When it comes to protecting your gutter and adding longevity to your home or commercial property, the fully functioning gutter system is a must. You can’t have water running down your walls and into your foundation.

Once drywall and the interior wood gets wet, it can be very hard to clean it up and to dry it out. Mold will grow almost instantly and your interior possessions can become compromised. Gutters are a great way to control the flow of water around your property.

The key is to find the right gutter systems to prevent clogs, ensure proper flow and to save you time when it comes to climbing ladders for routine cleaning.

When it comes to materials, there are many different options. Gutters can be made out of copper, steel, vinyl and even wood. A lot of times, however, problems can arise with these materials. Cost is an issue along with weight and longevity.

You also don’t want a gutter system that is an add-on to your roof or current gutter. A one-piece aluminum gutters system can be easily installed, is affordable and can be installed on almost every piece of property.

Don’t risk compromising your existing roof or going with a cheaper option that will just cost you more in the end. Get free-flowing gutters all year with a no-clog guarantee with a one-piece aluminum gutter system.

You have gotten fed up and are finally looking for a permanent solution to your gutters clogging and not draining correctly. So you start researching different gutter systems. To give a good idea of the various systems here is a quick overview to guide you in your purchasing decision.

Traditionally, a lot of gutter systems revolve around two-piece construction. They can be called gutter covers, hoods, helmets and other names and the cover attaches to your existing roof or gutter.

There are several problems with two-piece gutter systems. For starters, they can have gaps between the add-on and the gutter or your roof. The gutter shield can fail and collapse overtime, causes safety issues as well as letting in all the leaves and debris.

Another issue with two-piece systems is that that can harm your existing structure with the way they are installed. Nailing into your roof can cause damage to the wood and make it susceptible to mold and rotting.

There is also a concern about a two-piece gutter system voiding your warranty and thus not allowing you to collect if there has been a storm or other damage.

It’s no secret that it takes work to maintain a home, an investment property or a commercial building. But with a little bit of work, you can add value to your property while accumulating equity and not letting the structure deteriorate.

A good place to start is at the top. Your roof and gutter system must be intact and functioning properly in order to add longevity to your piece of property. Not paying attention to that system will end up costing you more in terms of your personal time and money down the road.

When gutters clog, water gets backed up and can start overflowing from the sides. That could seriously jeopardize your foundation, walkways and landscaping. Water needs to flow down the spouts and into a drainage system.

If you are having to dig up and adjust your foundation or have to hire general construction help then that is going to cost you a lot of money.

Gutter backups can also cause the gutter itself to fail due to the weight of the water, especially when it gets clogged due to ice. If the gutter falls on someone, you have to deal with the awful injury itself, and you could be facing a lawsuit depending on how the incident occurs.

The simple fix to all of your gutter issues is through installing a LeafGuard gutter system that is guaranteed to prevent clogs all year long.

It doesn’t matter if it is a commercial building, your permanent residence or a vacation home, you want the structure to stay intact as long as possible. Nothing will devalue a home quicker that water damage. And it doesn’t take very long for the water to ruin the building.

There are different ways water can hurt your home. If your roof or gutter system is compromised, water will begin to rot your house from the inside out. If the wood behind the drywall gets saturated it can be very difficult to fully dry the areas out.

When warmer weather is around, any moisture inside of your home can lead to mold growth. The spores can spread and it can even be bad for you to breath. The best way to protect your house or office is by ensuring all of your drainage and waterways are working together.

It all starts at the top of your house. Is your roof leaking? If so, you need to address the situation right away. Just as important as the roof is how well you gutter is performing. Traditional gutter systems are very prone to clogs and stoppages.

One-piece aluminum gutter systems won’t allow leaves and debris to easily fall into the gutter’s basin. The water follows the curved design and flows directly into the gutter, while sticks and tree debris stay out.

Once the water is in the gutter, it needs to be able to flow away from your home. If the gutter pipe is just dumping water into your basement, then the system is a failure.
