Enhance Your Home's Protection with Expert Gutter Services
Gutters are vital for protecting your home from rainwater damage, as they direct water away from your foundation and walls and prevent erosion, mold growth, and structural harm. In colder climates, they also help prevent ice dams, which can damage your roof and interior spaces. To ensure their effectiveness, it's important to maintain your gutters regularly.
Our team is dedicated to providing high-quality gutter solutions to keep your property safe from water damage. We use premium materials to guide rainwater away from your home's foundation and prevent erosion, basement flooding, and mold growth. You can trust our commitment to excellence in keeping your home cozy and well-protected.
What Size Gutters Are Ideal for North Idaho Living?
Summit Exteriors specializes in durable, lightweight 6-inch aluminum gutters that resist rust and corrosion. They are easy to install and maintain, making them a popular choice for homeowners.
Here are three reasons why we puffer 6-inch aluminum gutters over the standard gutters:
1. The 6-inch width: This size is larger than the standard 5-inch gutters and is generally recommended for areas that experience heavy rainfall or have large roof areas. The larger size helps to handle a greater volume of water, reducing the risk of overtime.
2. Strength and Durability: Aluminum gutters are known for their strength and durability. They can withstand harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, and strong winds. Additionally, aluminum is resistant to rust and corrosion, making it a long-lasting option.
3. Low Maintenance: Aluminum gutters require minimal maintenance. They do not need to be painted as they come with a factory-applied finish that helps to resist chipping, fading, and peeling. Regular cleaning and debris removal are recommended to ensure proper water flow.
Why You Need Gutter Guards
Having a gutter guard will provide you with long-term benefits. So even if they may require high upfront costs, they will be able to pay for themselves in time because…
- Prevents Water Damage. Clogged gutters can be damaging to homes. The longer the water will stand and pool on your gutters, the more likely it will seep through the boards, the siding, and the walls causing water damage and even structural issues.
- Protects against clogging and debris buildup. This is the primary reason why you should consider having a gutter guard. They filter or block leaves, twigs, and other debris from getting into your gutter system and prevent them from building up inside which is what causes clogging.
- Minimize mold and mildew. When your gutters are clogged, they become more vulnerable to mold growth. This can lead to potential health hazards and costly repairs if left untreated.
- Help pest control. Clogged gutters lead to moisture buildup, which attracts pests like rodents and insects seeking a cool, damp environment.
