Have you ever wondered what would happen if your home had no gutters? Let's put it this way: There are good reasons for why these things are included with every home. During a brisk rainfall, hundreds or even thousands of gallons worth of water can be shed from your roof. Without something to catch it, you are looking at a torrent. This will result in large water-filled ditches surrounding your home.
When you choose Greensboro Siding Contractors for your gutter replacement needs, you can be sure that you are getting the best service around. Unless you want a moat around your home, we recommend that you have these problems repaired quickly. You can, of course, save a lot of time and money by coming to us first.
You have a wide variety of choices when choosing your new gutters, and we can provide them all. Some people choose to go with wooden gutters, but these are usually not the best option. Before the 1960s, most homes were equipped with wooden gutters, but they are seldom used today. Unless your home is old enough and historically significant enough to warrant them, you should probably consider other options. However, we can certainly install wooden gutters if you should choose them.
Another common option is vinyl, but these are only preferred for their low cost. Vinyl works great for siding, but it isn't as good for gutters. This is because gutters have to carry a lot more weight. Water weighs about 8.3 pounds per gallon, and this can add up to a lot of weight very quickly. Over time, a vinyl gutter is much more likely to warp, especially if it becomes clogged.
That brings us to metal gutters, which are probably the best choice overall. They do tend to be a little more expensive, but they will also last much longer. Steel and aluminum are the most common choices, with steel being significantly tougher. In fact, steel gutters are easily the strongest on the market. If you really want something that will last a long time, it would be hard to go wrong there.
Of course, brass and copper are a lot more attractive, making them a great premium option. Gutters don't normally grab people's attention, but these two materials are the exceptions. Whatever you choose, you need to make sure that you have the right gutter contractors. If you are one of our customers, there is no need to worry in this regard.
Some of our customers prefer to have capped gutters. These are, quite simply, gutters with a cap on top to prevent them from being clogged with debris. Anyone who has ever had to get on a ladder and clean nasty old leaves from their gutter will understand just how nice that feature can be.
