When looking for gutter contractors, look no further than The Gutter Snipe, Lexington’s best gutter company.
Gutter cleaning is important when it comes to home maintenance. Leaves and debris falling from trees around your house can build up in your gutter system and cause your downspouts to become clogged. This can cause water runoff from your roof to overflow your gutters. If the blockage remains for an extended period of time, the water runoff can cause excessive moisture buildup in your crawl space or basement, leading to mold contamination. If your home is built on a slab, excessive runoff can undermine the foundation. The weight of leaves, debris and water in a clogged gutter system can cause the gutters to pull away from the fascia board and possibly tear away from your house completely. Leaves, dirt, limbs, weeds and other debris always end up leaving a soggy mess in your gutters.
Your gutters are an essential part of your home. If your gutters are not properly installed or if they’re in need of repair services, it’s important that you contact us. The longer you wait, the worse the potential damage to your property could be.
Some of the most common signs of gutter failure and the need for replacement are:
To keep your home safe from water damage, you need the gutter installation professionals at The Gutter Snipe. If you need new gutters, we will remove the old gutters and dispose of them. We will install new 5” gutters with 2” x 3” downspouts or 6” gutters with 3” x 4” downspouts according to your home’s needs. When you are installing new gutters, it is important to install gutter downspouts. Downspouts divert rain water away from the foundation of the property. Instead of rain water filling up the gutters and pouring out and pooling up around your home, downspouts direct water away. By installing downspouts, you will be lessening your chances for water damage to your home or business, especially if it is flowing directly into a drainage system.
If you are wondering what the difference is between standard gutters and seamless gutters, you are not alone. Unlike standard gutters, seamless gutters come with no seams, which means no leaks. Our seamless gutters help to maintain the strength of your gutter system and they ensure that water is efficiently carried away from your house. Seamless gutters are undoubtedly functional and they look great on essentially any property. Seamless gutters are available in aluminum or copper. To handle all of the rain in the greater Lexington area, 6” seamless gutters are our recommendation. That one inch difference allows the gutter to handle 50% more rain. That’s a lot more performance for a slight price difference.
Your home is your most important investment. Water problems can be devastating to your home, causing damage to landscaping, soffits, fascia boards, doors, windows and even your foundation, one of the most expensive areas of your home repair. The gutter contractors at The Gutter Snipe have extensive experience installing and replacing gutters and downspouts.
