Total Roofing Services: Gutters
Total Roofing is a full service gutter company that specializes in installing gutters and downspouts in order to prevent water pooling at the base of the home's foundation, as well as protecting the roof from being susceptible to water damage. The professionals at Total Roofing can install gutters in a variety of color choices to achieve a cohesive look that will match the rest of the home's color palette.
There are two basic styles of gutters: K styles, which feature flat bottoms and backs, and half round gutters, which resemble half round tubes and are frequently featured on homes that are located in historic neighborhoods. K style gutters are the most popular choice and come in a variety of decorative finishes. K styles can typically handle twice the capacity of water drainage than half round gutters. Both types of gutters are typically 5 to 6 inches in width.
The experts at Total Roofing can install gutters in a variety of available materials, including aluminum, copper, steel, vinyl, and zinc. The most widely used material is aluminum because it is naturally rust proof and is lightweight and relatively easy to install. Another benefit of aluminum is that it comes in a wide variety of color choices and can be easily painted. Seamless aluminum gutters are also a popular choice because they are made at the jobsite, rather than hauled. Most homeowners prefer seamless aluminum gutters because it eliminates the chance of leaks developing at the seams.
The professionals at Total Roofing can repair or replace gutters to ensure the interior of the home is protected from water damage. They can also inspect existing gutters in order to determine estimated longevity. During the inspection process, they will ensure there is no evidence of rotting or decay on the fascia board. They will also identify any weak areas that might be prone to developing leaks and will recommend the best options for maintaining proper gutter performance.
For homeowners that do not want the hassle of maintaining their gutters, Total Roofing technicians can install gutter guards that will protect the gutters from debris buildup. The ultimate goal of the company is to provide a convenient, cost effective solution.
