Are All Gutters the Same?
Being in the gutter business, it’s hard for us to remember that not everyone knows as much about gutters as we do. So, when simple questions come up, it’s important that we answer them honestly so our customers can make smart buying decisions. While we understand that gutters look more or less the same from a distance, there are key elements that you need to check on before having new gutters added to your building.
Specifically, it’s smart to order a seamless gutter like those we install at Stumptown Gutters. Seamless gutters offer fewer opportunities for water to get away, which is exactly what you want. You also want to go with an installer who uses screws instead of nails, as nails are much more likely to pull away from the building in time. We do everything to a high standard of quality on our jobs and we back the work with a lifetime workmanship guarantee as a result.
Clean and Inspect Your Gutters Regularly
Don’t take the health of your gutters for granted. This is especially important in an area like Tigard where homes and businesses are surrounded by so many tall trees. Over time, gutters collect debris and they gradually lose their ability to drain water effectively. Also, problems can develop with the condition of the gutters, and those issues might go unnoticed without a periodic inspection. Our maintenance services at Stumptown Gutters cover the spectrum including cleaning, inspection, and repair, so you can rest assured that this part of your home is in tip-top shape.
Do Gutter Guards Really Work?
Depending on who you listen to, gutter guards are either the greatest invention of all time or largely useless. Which camp is right? Neither, of course. The truth is in the middle, as gutter guards won’t entirely stop debris from getting into your gutters, but they can do a great job of cutting back on the need to clean out those gutters so often. The key when buying gutter guards is to get a quality product like the Stainless Steel MicroMesh we use and to have it installed by a qualified team of professionals. When used correctly, gutter guards are a great way to improve the long-term health of your entire gutter system.
Gutter Work Can’t Wait
We take such pride in our work because we know how important properly functioning gutters are to the health of a building. Simply put, you can’t allow your home or business to go long without taking care of gutter issues. Water damage is a constant threat when gutters have been compromised, so bring us in and get this taken care of once and for all. Thank you for considering Stumptown Gutters!
