Problems of Ineffective Storm Gutters and Downspouts
Storm gutters and downspouts are your first line of defense against water damage to the roof and foundation of your home. Unfortunately, the gutters on your Lexington, SC, home need to be repaired and unclogged because of the beautiful trees and other foliage we enjoy all year round. Leaves, twigs, and other organic debris become airborne during storms and get caught in your gutters and downspouts, which lose their ability to provide sufficient water runoff.
The inability of your gutters to divert water from your Lexington home creates standing water around your foundation that can damage your concrete and seep into your basement, causing extensive and expensive damage to your foundation. Too much overflowing and trapped water will soak the wood fascia your drainage system is mounted to. Eventually the wood support will rot, leaving gaps for water to seep into the attic and the interior walls of your home.
Gutter Installation and Repair in Lexington, SC
We install custom seamless storm gutter systems and traditional systems designed to match the style and drainage required by the construction of your Lexington home. Before installing anything onto your home, we will make extensive, precision measurements to be 100% certain our system exactly matches the perimeter dimensions of your roof. We will note all the places where we want to avoid the installation of downspouts, e.g., away from utility meters, basement windows, exterior cellar entrances, and stairs. We will also look for locations where the downspouts can provide the most effective water diversion from your home.
Whether a seamless gutter system or a traditional drainage system, the gutters are attached to the fascia of your roof, but snugly enough to eliminate space between the gutter and the edge of the roof. It’s important that the drip edge drains directly into the open gutter. We sometimes use brackets and straps that support the gutter from below, and that blend in to avoid visual detection unless you’re looking directly up at them.
To repair a traditional gutter system, we’ll clean off your roof and clear out all leaves, twigs, and other debris that might be clogging your system. We’ll also look for trees that might need to be trimmed back to prevent further “shedding.” If any sections are damaged or are no longer attached to the fascia, we’ll make the necessary repairs. If your entire gutter system is compromised, we’ll recommend the installation of new gutters.
