Why Do I Need Gutters?
Gutters are important for myriad reasons. Not only will gutters protect your San Jose home, but they will also prevent erosion, protect your landscaping, and help you avoid basement flooding. Most homes are built on a slight slope to ensure water runs away from the foundation. Gutters help that process by directing water. However, an absence of gutters allows rainwater to cause erosion by gradually washing away soil, eventually wearing down your landscaping and forcing water toward your home. Heavily-saturated soil or inefficient landscaping can then cause basement flooding that threatens the structural integrity of your house. In addition, by reducing your home’s vulnerability to damage, gutters can protect your siding’s appearance and durability by diverting water that can cause it to rot or become dirty.
Why Is It Important to Clean My Gutters?
Westshore Roofing provides gutter cleaning services in San Jose, CA to ensure efficiency and protect homes. Simply having gutters is not enough. They must be clean and clear to function as they should. Reasons to keep gutters clean include:
- Protect roofing – If your gutters are clogged, water can pool inside of it or collect at the bottom of your roof, causing damage that could be expensive to rectify.
- Prevent basement flooding – Rainwater can overflow from clogged gutters and pool at your home’s base, which may result in foundation damage and eventually basement flooding.
- Pest prevention – Insects are drawn to standing water, so clogged gutters are perfect havens for mosquitoes and cockroaches. Additionally, clogged gutters may damage your home and create holes through which rodents can enter.
- Appearance – Your home is a reflection of you and your family. Do not leave a poor impression on passersby due to debris and damage. Let Westshore Roofing clean your gutters today.
How Often Do I Need to Clean My Gutters?
At a minimum, you should receive professional gutter cleaning services from Westshore Roofing biannually. We will remove any debris, leaves, acorns, or any other items that have accumulated over the preceding six months to ensure your home is ready for the next season. Ideally, you should clean your gutters in the spring after trees bud and in the fall after their leaves drop. However, it may be necessary to request gutter cleaning services more frequently. Storms or an abundance of trees that hang over your roof can cause debris to accumulate quickly. When our team cleans your gutters, we will assess your situation and provide advice regarding the frequency with which you should clean your gutters.
What is the Gutter Installation Process?
The gutter installation process is much more in-depth than simply hanging gutters from the side of your house. Every gutter installation our team at Westshore Roofing performs is precise and calculated. We carefully plan where to place the gutters – accounting for obstacles, downspouts, and extended roofs – before any handiwork. The craftsmanship begins by cutting and jointing rain gutters to size and adding outlets for downspouts. Prior to hanging your gutters, we must also consider the slope of each roof and install hangers for support. We will proceed to hang your gutters and install the downspouts to ensure your home’s safety from the rain.
Why Do I Need to Hire a Gutter Installation Professional?
As with most things, a professional will complete the job quicker and more efficiently than a novice. If you have never installed gutters before, why risk your safety or home’s protection with a do-it-yourself project? Westshore Roofing provides unparalleled gutter expertise for homeowners in San Jose, CA. During the process, we can even recognize areas for concern related to your roof, shingles, or fascia. As part of our gutter installation process, we can customize gutters to fit your home to minimize the risk of leaks. Furthermore, we will save you time and money because we have all the materials necessary and a team of experts who have completed similar projects numerous times before. The protection we can offer through gutter installation extends to your siding, foundation, and roof.
