A functioning water collection and diverter system is important to collect the rainwater that would otherwise run off of your roof and possibly allow water to penetrate into your home, attic or foundation. Properly installed gutters will greatly reduce the risk of water penetration and moisture problems by collecting and diverting water away from sensitive areas around your roof and property. Most water damage starts around the roof structure such as around windows, fascia, soffits and foundations. Seamless Gutters and downspouts provide an easy solution to collect and divert this water for proper drainage away from home and foundations. In addition to protecting your home from water intrusion it is also important to protect your mechanical equipment from rain water run off. Equipment such as air conditioning compressors, pool equipment, sprinkler pumps, electrical boxes, heaters and other equipment will last longer if water is diverted away from the electrical components of your equipment.
A proper installation consists of several components including straight sections, inside corners, outside corners, end caps, hangers and leaf screens. Downspout components consist of straight downspout sections, elbows, straps and a splash block. The straight sections or “trough” sections are the primary piece of the system. These sections usually come in 10′ lengths and can be joined together if a longer section is required. A joiner is used to connect the two sections to form a longer length. many companies have a machine that forms the trough section on site, from a roll of aluminum. Almost any length can be extruded from the machine. Since this system is cut to length they are called “seamless gutters”. Once all of the components are properly installed you will have a functioning system capable of catching and diverting all of the water away from low lying, and collection areas. When installing your system it is also important to slant your system towards the downspout. Without proper slope towards the downspout the water will back up and not drain properly. It is also important to get all of your parts from the same manufacturer. While all of the parts are basically the same different manufacturers have slightly different sizes and shapes. While this is not an issue with seamless systems it is important with the more traditional installations.
Gutters do periodically require maintenance and repair. Often times you may need maintenance and gutter repair without even knowing it. Many times this is too late. Maintenance and repair while not difficult is important. When not functioning properly your system will overflow or leak often times letting water penetrate into the structure of your home. This added moisture or water intrusion may cause severe water damage or even mold. Keeping your gutter clean, leak free and properly supported is important for your system to function properly.
