Without gutters, rainwater and melting snow would fall straight off our roofs. This may not sound like such a disaster, but you have to consider where the water will collect after it falls: near the foundation of the home or building. When this water gathers, it can cause leaks, excess moisture, and great damage to the structure. Although gutters aren’t recommended for all homes, if your home needs them, be sure to choose your gutters carefully, have them installed with care, keep them clear, and maintain them. Taylor-Made Roofing can assist you with each step of this process.
Our Guttering Services
If you need to add gutters to your home or commercial building, give Taylor-Made Roofing a call. We can install durable and seamless 5″ or 6″ gutters as well as commercial box-style gutters. We can also tear off old gutters and replace them with a reliable new product. With our help, your gutters will remain safe, strong, and secure.
Your guttering system will include gutters (which capture and guide the water), end caps (which close the ends of the gutters), fascia brackets (which are attached to the eaves and support the gutters), downspouts (which guide the water from the gutter to the ground), and downspout brackets (which secure the downspouts to the building).
Gutters come in several different materials, including vinyl, aluminum, steel, zinc, and copper, as well as different styles and lengths. We recommend that you purchase seamless gutters, which prevent leaks by eliminating seams in the structure. Seamless gutters are also built on-site for a customized fit.
A gutter is only effective if it is clear, so you’ll need to brush out all of the built-up leaves and debris a few times each year. To reduce the number of times you need to travel up and down your ladder for cleanings, consider adding a gutter guard. These innovative protection systems allow rain to enter the gutter while keeping leaves and other debris on top.
