Your Source for Quality Gutters
Many homeowners wonder if they actually need gutters for their home, and our short answer to that question is always yes. An effective gutter system directs rainwater away from your home to protect your foundation, because excess water that seeps into the ground around your foundation can wreak serious havoc. All that water absorption can crack your foundation, destroy landscaping and reduce the visual appeal and value of your home.
Besides foundation issues, backed-up gutters can eventually lead to extensive roof leaks. Those leaks can severely damage your ceilings, walls, floors, appliances, furniture and any other valuables within your home. By having reliable gutters in place, you can avoid all that damage and save yourself from an expensive and time-consuming major home repair project down the road.
Types of Gutters
There are several different types of gutters that range in size and material. Most homes require 5-inch gutters, but homes in an area that experiences a high amount of rainfall throughout the year need 6-inch gutters. Continental Roofing Company, LLC offers both sizes and can help you determine which is best suited to your particular needs.
Most gutters on the market are stamped from aluminum and painted to match the color of a home. We offer aluminum gutters, but we also have alternative materials. For many families, copper is the preferred alternative to aluminum because copper has a lifespan that is four times longer. Copper also corrodes much more slowly, does not corrode on the underside at all, has antifungal and anti-algae properties and requires less maintenance. Additionally, copper gutters are recyclable and can survive a wide range of temperatures more gracefully than the standard aluminum, which saves you money in the long run.
