Why You Shouldn’t Let Those Gutters SputterJune 02, 2015
We love water. We love it when we go for a swim, we enjoy it when we take strolls along the beach. What we don’t love is having water all around the house. The roof is the primary line of defense against rains, true, but without a high-quality gutter system supporting it, even the best systems won’t keep water where you want it to be.
The good news is Huff ‘N Puff, experts in gutter installation in Albany, NY, offers several options when it comes to high quality gutters. Here’s what you need to know about our gutter solutions.
The Seamless Advantage
There are many gutter options to choose from, but we recommend the seamless variety. The first thing to note about seamless gutters is that they look immaculate—being custom-fit for your specific roof. This isn’t just an aesthetic thing, though, the absence of seams leaves little room for cracks and leaks to form.
You’ll enjoy your seamless gutters more when you opt for the SnapLock™ system. Normally, gutters are hammered onto the fascia board, creating punctures which—over time—become vulnerable to water infiltration. The pros at Huff ‘N Puff, however, use a special attachment system that does away with screws and spikes so there’s no chance of water eventually seeping in. When we take on the installation job, we ensure that the gutters are mounted right so you end up with a system that truly lasts.
The Importance of Quality
The key here, however, is to get quality. When you skimp on gutters, you risk ending up with a system that will cost you more money in the long run. Getting a subpar product and hiring substandard roofers to do the job only leads to more costly repairs down the line. When you invest in a high quality system, on the other hand, you get better value for your money because you get a gutter system that does its job efficiently—and for a very long time too.
A Great Little Extra
You can maximize your investment by going for Gutter Helmet®, a cover-type gutter protection. It fits over your existing gutter in Albany, NY, and helps to lower maintenance hassles by only allowing water to enter the trough. Leaves and all other debris that are the bane of gutters everywhere get pushed off the roof and down the ground where you can easily sweep them away.
Gutters clearly play a critical role in your home, and it’s smart to invest in projects that will make your home perform more efficiently. Huff ‘N Puff is committed to delivering the most essential gutter systems for your home—at the highest level of quality. Give us a call today, and we’ll help you meet your gutter needs.
