Gutter Protection, Installation, Cleaning & Repair Shoreline WA
41 inches of rain fall every year onto Shoreline commercial and residential roofs. This means that gutters are vital for taking all that water away from roofs and out to drainage areas. For gutter installation in Shoreline, WA, call Guardian Home Services.
Dependable Shoreline Gutter Installation
You don’t have to have a degree in climatology to know this region receives heavy precipitation. However, you may not understand the importance of a good gutter system to manage that rainfall.
Without gutters, buildings are susceptible to damage that occurs when volumes of water regularly fall from roofs onto vulnerable surfaces below, including sidewalks, driveways, decks, railings, and foundation plants. The worst impact on a building without gutters is water pooling around the bases of exterior walls.
Water that pools around foundations can seep into slab cracks and pass in through walls into basements. Clearly, neither situation is good. Accordingly, mold can grow, and basements can flood when water seeps inside.
Buildings in Shoreline that have gutters installed experience fewer water-related foundation problems because rainwater is directed away from the structure and out into drainage areas.
What’s the Best Gutter Size?
The gutter size we fit depends on how steep and how large the roof pitches are. The bigger the roof, the more water it captures that must be channeled away. The steeper the roof, the quicker rainwater flows down it. Both dynamics influence the gutter size required to manage runoff.
At Guardian Home Services, we mostly install five- or six-inch gutters on commercial buildings and big homes. We put four-inch gutters on smaller and flatter roofs. The biggest gutters typically are reserved for roofs on multi-story facilities, arena roofs, and the like.
Shoreline Customers Get Our Seamless Gutters
Traditionally, gutters were connected in pre-formed segments with sealant at the joints. Exposure to the elements caused the sealant to break down and curl or flake away, allowing water to drip out through the joint below.
Guardian Home almost exclusively installs seamless gutters instead of sectioned gutters. Our seamless gutters are made on the job site so they are perfectly customized to every roof
Gutter Types to Choose From
K-line or K-style gutters are the gutter type that most people are familiar with. At Guardian Home Services, we frequently install this type of gutter to Shoreline roofs. There are other types, however, such as fascia-style, low-profile, and half-round. Gutter materials vary from vinyl to metal and copper. Different colors are also available. Customers who don’t know what type of gutters are best for their roofs may consult with Guardian Home experts.
Gutter Repair and Maintenance Shoreline
Gutter systems need repair and maintenance just like other building envelope systems. When well maintained, gutter systems will last for years. Systems that are not repaired or maintained may experience any of the following problems:
- Getting dented, crushed, or torn off
- Sagging or sloping due to pulling away from the fascia board
- Blockage from leaves and debris
- Becoming streaked by oxidation lines
Reach out to Guardian Home Services for Shoreline gutter repair and maintenance. Our team of experts will make all necessary repairs and restore your gutters to full functionality.
Install Those Gutter Guards
Gutter guards are panels of very fine stainless steel mesh that fit over the tops of gutters. The panels are also called filters, covers, and screens.
Gutter guards keep debris out while allowing rainwater in. They effectively eliminate clogs and blockages because no debris can get into the channels. Even the fine granules that wash off asphalt shingle roofs cannot get through a gutter guard.
We recommend that home and business owners in Shoreline install gutter guards.
Shoreline Gutter Cleaning
Gutters that do not have guards installed fill with debris over time, especially when a building is surrounded by trees. Clogged gutters result in water flowing over gutters and falling onto vulnerable surfaces and objects below.
Most homeowners and commercial property managers do not want to deal with clogged gutters. Few people enjoy getting up on a ladder and scooping out handfuls of rotting matter.
