Residential Gutter Installation
When it comes to gutter installation, you need an expert. Gutters are critical to channel rainwater from the roof and through the system. Gutters keep the large amount of water from going into the walls, basements and crawl spaces. Water in these spaces can contribute to dampness, mold, and foundation cracks. When installed properly, gutters act as a shield to minimize water infiltration from windows, doors, and siding.
During storms, gutters can be pulled away from the roof causing multiple problems. First of all, your gutters could leave an unprotected gap on your roof or make the gutter alignment improperly slope. As a result, your gutters can prevent water from effectively entering and exiting the downspouts. Also, gutter damage is possible from debris hitting the gutters or collecting in the gutters. In cold weather, ice build-up and thawing can even be damaging to your gutter system.
Why New Gutters?
Storm-damaged roofs and gutters should be promptly repaired or replaced to prevent much bigger problems down the road. Such problems include water infiltrating and saturating into the foundation of the home and walls. Even minor foundation cracks can cause catastrophic structural damage to your home. When water gets inside of your home, it can cause mold growth. Mold growth has an effect on your home and even causes illnesses for home owners. Therefore, it is important to detect and repair or replace damaged roofing and gutter systems promptly.
In order for Capstone to calculate what gutter system is best for you, we calculate the water runoff during a heavy rainstorm and assess the amount of leaves in the area. This helps us decide what size and type of gutter is best for you. If a gutter is too small, water damage can occur during heavy rains and leaves can overflow the gutters. If a gutter is too big, you will spend too much money on your gutters. Therefore, it is important to work with an expert who cares about your needs. A member of our team will work with you every step of the way to make sure you get the system that your home needs. Installing a new gutter system includes labor costs, materials, and necessary couplings, hangers and downspouts.
Seamless Aluminum Gutters
Capstone uses aluminum gutters on most homes. One of the main advantages of aluminum gutters is that they never rust even if they become clogged. Capstone uses heavier aluminum to custom fit the gutters to the house and connect with the downspouts. Because using conventional long nails can pull away from the fascia over time, Capstone fastens the gutter system using screws. Capstone prefers extruded aluminum over sectional gutters because they minimize leaky seams. Improper gutter protection leads to clogs and other issues. You need to work with an expert in order to save you time, money, and frustration from these issues.
