Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When should the gutters be replaced?

A: A guttering system is essential to ensure proper drainage of rain water. It is therefore important for every home owner to make sure that his or her home has a well-functioning gutter system. Experts have found out that gutters made of aluminum or galvanized steel can last for about two decades while those made of copper can last for a half a century. However, this does not account for factors such as fallen tree branches and storm which can call for early gutters replacement. So what do need you to look for to determine whether your gutters need to be replaced? Some of the signs that show your gutters need to be replaced include

-Rust spots, huge holes or cracks
-Broken fasteners or the metal pieces that hold your gutters in place
-Repeated instances of nails and screws on the ground due to worn out gutters
- Separation of gutters
-Gutters start pulling away from the roof
-Improperly pitched or sagging gutters
-Peeling of the paint on the exterior side
-Pooling water or dirty channels causing the water to spill over the gutters
-Eroded landscape especially near the foundation of your house
-Flooded basements due to the water falling near your foundation.

Q: Where should rain gutters be installed?

A: Gutters and downspouts are necessary for many homes since they help to correct and carry away rain water which can erode the nearby landscape or even leak into the basement. However, if you intend to install new gutters or replace the existing one you should ensure they have been installed in the right place and the right manner. First, you need to choose the right type of gutters for your house. Try choosing the ones made of durable and affordable materials. Remember to calculate the pitch properly to enhance smooth flow of rain water. Note that water runs down your roof and off at the ledge; therefore, your gutters should be installed a few inches below the ledge to ensure all rain water is being collected and carried away to the downspout.

Q: How do you keep gutters from freezing?

A: Sometimes ice may look pretty, but it can severely damage your home especially when it accumulates on your gutters. When water freezes, it starts to expand exerting additional pressure which causes the gutters to warp. Ice can also form in clogged gutters which can lead to a serious problem. The best way to prevent damages that result from frozen gutters is to prevent the freezing from taking place. Some of the ways you can prevent your gutters from freezing include cleaning the gutters regularly to allow smooth flow of the rain water. Also ensure that the gutters are well sloped to avoid water from stagnating in the channels, add rock salt in your gutters to melt the ice, removing the accumulated snow on the roof as well as installing heated cables designed for rooftops and gutters.

Q: How do you get rid of ice dams in gutters?

A: An ice dam can severely damage a house rooftop, gutters, and downspout if left to sit there for long. If an ice dam is not removed quickly, it can break free bringing down gutters and shingles and can also destroy anything else on the ground below. There are various ways of removing an ice dam which includes

- Removing it by cutting it into small chunks using a blunt mallet
- Clear out the downspout and gutters
- Melt the ice using calcium chloride ice melter
- Try clearing the snow before the ice accumulates
- Seal and insulate the spaces between the roof and the living area to prevent warm air from leaking through the roof.

Q: What happens when gutters are clogged?

A: Gutters are responsible for carrying water from the roof to the drainage area. However, as time passes debris and other waste materials can clog in the gutters resulting to serious nasty conditions such as roof leaks from the trapped water, insects’ infestation, leaking basements, poor odor from rotting materials in the gutters, damaged land scape as well as rotting of the wood holding the gutters.

Q: What paint can be used on gutters?

A: Most new gutters come with white paint which might not suit your home. If the paint on the gutters does not match with your home, you can paint them with a different color that suits you. Choosing the right color for your gutters is great ways to enhance the look of your home. When choosing paint for your gutters go for clear acrylic bonding premier since the latex paint premier contains ammonia which reacts with oxidized aluminum causing bubbles to form underneath the layer.

Q: Are gutters required by building code?

A: Gutters are optional, but there are set of regulations that require that gutter should be installed on buildings in areas with loose or collapsible soil. It is required that all dwellings in such areas should have a well monitored and controlled mode of collecting and disposing roof water to the ground at least 5 feet from the foundation walls or to an approved distance.
