Why You Need a Professional to Install Your Gutter System

December 04, 2017

Whether you’re fitting a new house with a new gutter system, repairing a damaged gutter, or installing replacement gutters, it is important to remember that a professional contractor is the best person for the job. Gutter installation is a serious task, and going the DIY route in the effort to save a buck is likely to backfire.

Why You Need a Professional to Install Your Gutter System

Read on as Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY explains how faulty gutter work can make your home less safe and end up costing you far more to repair than you would have paid for professional workmanship in the first place.

Wrong or Defective Pitch

The right pitch is an important consideration in gutter installation. If the pitch is defective for any reason, water may not be able to flow freely into the downspouts and away from your home. Pools of standing water can cause damage to the gutter and its support system, the roof, the siding, and even your home’s foundation. It can also lead to mold growth, posing a health hazard to you and your family. In the winter, the pools of water may freeze and form ice dams, which can cause costly damage to your gutters and roof. Avoid these issues by hiring professionals.

Lack of Support and Flashing

The lack of a system support can make your gutters fail prematurely. The weight of water can cause your gutters to come loose, sag, or pull away from the eaves, leading to all sorts of dangers. This can eventually lead to dry rot and possibly a termite problem. Working with a professional like Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY will reduce the chances of such mistakes, particularly if you opt for seamless gutters.

Clogged Gutters

Gutters are prone to clogging. A contractor like Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY can install a high-quality gutter cap to prevent this problem. Clogged gutters are useless and can cause water damage to your roof, siding, foundation, and even your landscape.
