Leave The Ladder In The Garage This Fall

By | Gutter Business Blog

Imagine not needing to get the ladder out, and spend a Saturday cleaning leaves and other debris from your gutter this fall. Then, imagine using that time to relax with friends and family instead. With our system you can do all that! Our flow reducer hood allows water into the gutter system, to then be drained properly while keeping leaves out. No cleaning, and no ladder, necessary ever again!

The premium grade aluminum isn’t only aesthetically pleasing, with its crown moulding effect, it is designed to withstand heavy rains for decades to come. Our 3 point mounting brackets attach the gutter in such a way that you won’t have to worry about it pulling away from your home over time. It’s an investment that reaps big rewards over the life of your house, or when it’s time to sell.

Our job is to take the thought out of gutter maintenance for you- and we’re good at what we do! So, put that ladder away, make those weekend plans, and give us a call at 877-667-4888 for a free consultation.

Put An End To Recurring Gutter Issues

By | Gutter Business Blog, Gutter Systems

Nearly every area of the country experienced quite a bit of rain this Spring. While rain can put a damper on the day, especially for a business like ours whose employees spend a majority of their day outdoors, it can also be useful for finding out how effectively your gutters are working.

After the next big rain event at your home or business, take a moment to look inside your gutter. There should not be any standing water. If you find there IS, it’s a good time to figure out what is not working with your gutters in order to prevent costly damage down the road. If water is not draining properly, this can cause backups and eventually roof damage.

Sometimes standing water may be a result of a clogged gutter or downspout, and might be a simple fix. The reality is, this issue will likely be recurring, as leaves and debris are a constant problem. This is why we believe so strongly in our product- a product designed to prevent issues like this from the start! Our system (http://www.guttershutter.com/systems/) will help any home or business owner keep their gutter clog free, and draining properly.

If you’d like to save yourself work in the longterm, give GutterShutter a call today for a free estimate! Our experts will install the best possible system for your home or business. And if you haven’t yet, take a moment and check out this video of our process.

Keep Your Gutters Clear of Debris This Spring

By | Gutter Systems

Did you know your gutters can clog with just a few leaves? This is why it’s so important to stay on top of maintenance, and be proactive about gutter cleaning. This is a problem that will inevitably get worse over time without proper action steps.

One preventative step home-owners can take is to cover their gutters. When you utilize the Gutter Shutter system, this comes with the deal! Our system drains the water while keeping the leaves and debris out. This simple step of covering your gutters can keep them free of clogs, and greatly decrease cleaning and maintenance time.

Aside from a cover, simply keeping your gutters clean is essential. Periodically check them, clear them, and run water through to be sure they are functioning properly. As usual, we’re here to help. Find a dealer near you or call toll-free, 866-677-GUTTERS (4888) for a free, no-obligation estimate and find out for yourself why so many homeowners choose GutterShutter for their home!

It’s Time For A Spring Gutter Audit

By | Gutter Systems, Uncategorized

With the arrival of Spring, it’s a great time to perform a gutter audit. There are any number of things that can cause drainage issues, and it’s important to catch them early.

Are your gutters clogged? Take time to clear them, top to bottom, and run water through them to be sure they’re not blocked. A lot of debris could have built up throughout the Winter, and Spring will likely bring even more.

As you run water through to test for gutter blockages, it’s also a good time to check for leaks. As water runs through the gutter, check all sides to be sure there are no leaks. Now is the time to find and solve a problem like that before it’s too late. Pay particular attention to any water that is getting behind your gutter and against the fascia.

Are your downspouts pointing correctly, and directing water away from your home? Improper placement can result in basement leaks and/or siding damage. Don’t forget, these can get clogged too, and cause problems if water is allowed to pool near your foundation.

Lastly, take note of the types of trees you (and your close neighbors) have, and remember to keep an eye on them as they shed items onto your roof. Certain trees can be a nuisance, and are worth keeping an eye on!

As usual, any of our estimators is available to come out and perform a free evaluation of your current gutter system. They’ll make qualified recommendations, and get you on your way to the best possible draining system for your home!

Plus, you’ll never need to do a gutter audit or climb a dangerous ladder to clear debris ever again with the GutterShutter system!

April Showers: Big Problems

By | Award Winning Gutter Design, Gutter Quality, Gutter Systems, GutterShutter News

April showers might bring May flowers, but they can also bring some less than desirable things for homeowners!

Foundation Problems

Excessive rain can cause foundation problems due to water buildup. This is typically a result of misdirected roof runoff and clogged gutter downspouts, and can have costly results for homeowners. Be sure and keep an eye on your floor boards and walls, as crumbling and cracks are a tell-tale sign of a problem. Read More
