3 Questions to Ask Before Installing New Gutters

For homeowners, water can be a friend, or it can be a foe. If not properly redirected, rain can become a huge issue, which makes it pivotal to have the proper gutter systems in place. They actually play a role in protecting the structural integrity of your home. A good gutter system keeps rainwater safely away from the foundation, as well as helping to prevent mold damage and pools of stagnant water where mosquitoes like to breed.

Whether you’re having gutters installed for the first time or just updating a current system there are a few questions you should ask prior to hiring a company to replace them.

What kind of gutter system should I have?

We will gladly come out and perform a free inspection to check things such as how much roof overhang you have, whether trees are a factor, and if water tends to pool anywhere against the structure. From there, our gutter experts will discuss what options you have, and what is absolutely necessary for your home. 

What gutter material is best for my home? 

We’re happy to guide you through the process and the options that are available to you, but ultimately the decision is up to you, the homeowner. Many times, the call comes down to how much quality you can afford. 

How long will it take to install?

As you’d expect, the size of the home is a major variable, this includes whether it is a one-story, two-story, or more. Installation time also varies based on whether we’re removing an old gutter system. What material the new gutter system will be attaching to is also a factor. Many jobs can be done fairly quickly. Your free inspection will give us the information we need to give you a timeline.
