Gutters protect your home in many ways. Without gutters, rainwater can fall to the ground causing damage to your foundation and landscaping. If the water is not directed away from your home properly it can potentially get into your basement and the structure of your home.
Many builders over the years used 5-inch gutters on homes built in our area. They chose these 5-inch gutters over a 6-inch gutter to save money. Unfortunately, for many homes, 5 inch gutters are not big enough to remove all the water from the roof during heavy rain pour. This can cause severe damage to your soffit, fascia and the structure of your home. In many cases, a 6-inch gutter is required so these problems do not occur.
Many gutter systems were also installed using the nail in the method. These nails are known to back out causing gutters to fall away from the home. That is why we only use the gutter hanger system which uses a screw to attach the gutter to the main frame.
