Storm Gutter Services
The storm gutters and downspouts of your Lexington, SC, home are the first stage of stormwater management to protect your roof, your siding, and your foundation from severe water damage. The gutters are meant to collect rainwater and channel it to the downspouts, which divert the water away from the concrete foundation of your Lexington home, preferably to the gutters of the street. When anything goes wrong with that primary drainage system, there is every chance your home, at some time in the future, will show signs of water damage. Proactive mitigation of that situation will prevent potential damage and the need for costly, future gutter repairs on your Lexington home.
Storm Gutter Installation in Lexington, SC
Any number of natural conditions can undermine the efficiency of your storm gutters to divert water from your roof, from rust and corrosion to mud and debris that cause too much weight and pop the gutters at the seams. Wind can loosen your gutters from the house and, if your gutters are old, nails can rust and fail, causing your gutter to sag or hang from the fascia. If water has pooled anywhere in the gutter, you might see mold and fungal growth collecting at the edge of the roof, creating a danger of wood rot. Most signs of storm gutter problems are visually obvious and, at the first indication your home in Lexington needs gutter repair, you know it’s time to contact us at Sands Roofing & Construction.
Gutter Guards on Your Lexington Home
Clogs from leaves, debris, wind-blown dirt, and other things that can roll down your roof and plug up the system are the primary cause for storm gutter problems, and sometimes failure in Lexington, SC homes. Gutter guards are filters that cover the opening of your gutters to let water in and to keep everything else out. Gutter guards reduce the need to constantly clean out your gutters and maximize the ability of the gutters and downspouts to divert stormwater from your Lexington home. Before installing the gutters, we’ll clear your roof of all debris to ensure obstacles do not get trapped anywhere in the system. We recommend a thorough roof inspection twice a year, but if you prefer only an annual checkup, we suggest you schedule routine maintenance in the spring.
Seamless Rain Gutters
If your home is older or your new home has been built with standard materials and services, seamless rain gutters are a perfect choice for the prevention of potential water damage and are more aesthetically pleasing than traditional gutters, which come in multiple sections. Seamless gutters have seams only at the capped ends and at the corners and allow for better drainage. They are easier to maintain and can last the lifetime of your roof when properly maintained.
