The problem with gutters is that they don’t warn you before the clog up. One day, you think they’re working fine, and the next, there is rainwater pouring off of your roof during the afternoon downpour. Who knows how long water has been pooling up there, breeding mosquitoes and seeping in under the edge of your shingles to rot the wood along the edge of your home.
If your gutters were protected, you wouldn’t have to worry about this problem ever again. As your Chattanooga roofing experts will demonstrate, the protected gutter system doesn’t get the same storm debris in it that the unprotected gutter system does. The protection system, easy enough to install by yourself, changes the very way that your gutters work. Your Nashville roofing team can have your gutters upgraded and operating in an entirely new and efficient way in less than a day’s time.
The gutter protection system creates a water proof barrier higher along the shingles of your home, redirecting the water away from these easily damaged areas along the edge of the shingles. This is the location where the average self installation job makes mistakes. Unless this seal is water tight, you will just be moving the gutter problem further up the roof and away from the natural gutters altogether.
During installation, your Nashville roofing expertsseal this area over completely, blocking the lower areas out of the water’s reach. The angle of approach to your gutters is changed, slowing the water’s flow rate. As the water slows, it casually flows over the rounded edge of the protection system. This same flow, akin to that of a gentle stream, flushes the storm debris straight on off the side of your roof, avoiding landing in your gutters altogether.
As your Chattanooga roofing team will show your home will never again be at the mercy of the next storm’s casually dropped debris. Everything from tree branches to leaves will roll straight off your roof and fall to the ground where you can deal with it once the storm has passed. You’ll never need to clean your gutters again.
