South Carolina Gutter Replacement
Keep Your Property Safe; Call Fraser Roofing, LLC Today!
A single raindrop might seem like an inconsequential thing in the world, but when combined together into large-scale rainfall, raindrops can unleash a shocking amount of water onto your property. In fact, a 1,000 square foot roof can collect as much as 300 gallons of water with as little as half of an inch of rainfall! That means your roof is going to see a lot of water during a storm, and the water that collects on your roof needs to have somewhere to go. While your roof’s slope will direct water away from it, the collected water needs a durable and well-built gutter system to carry the water to where it can be disposed of safely.
At Fraser Roofing, LLC, we can help you when your rain gutters fall apart or simply can’t do their job any longer. Gutters can and do eventually fall apart, and problems can cause them to fail, break, or even fall from your eaves when you need them. That’s why we offer whole-home gutter replacement services. Are you sick of your gutters giving you trouble when it rains? Are your gutters an eyesore that surrounds your home? Do they fail to capture water properly or always seem to cause more problems than they solve? We’ll come to you with premium replacements and install them properly so you don’t have to stress about them any longer. We stand by the work we do, and we go to great lengths to earn your trust and your total and complete satisfaction, no matter how big the size of your project.
When Should I Replace My Gutters?
Rain gutters are invaluable to protecting your property, so they need to be replaced when they simply can’t do their job anymore. Much like your roof, your rain gutters will eventually break down thanks to exposure to the sun and other harsh wear and tear from the elements. And while rain gutters don’t need to be replaced often, you can expect to have to replace them roughly every decade or so. Some types of rain gutters last longer than others, and caring for and maintaining your gutters can help extend their longevity.
However, you will eventually need to replace your gutters completely. We strongly recommend replacing your gutters when you replace your roof, and when your gutters sustain serious damage that simply can’t be fixed. For example, if a large section of your gutters detaches and falls from your roof, then you should have all of your gutters replaced as other areas are likely at a similar level of wear and could experience a similar event in the near future.
Keep Your Gutters Clean!
The number-one way to care for your gutters and prevent them from wearing out is also the number-one way to make sure they do their job without any issues—keep them clean. Cleaning your rain gutters isn’t always the most enjoyable chore—it can be a dirty, messy job that requires spending quite a while up on a ladder. However, doing so is necessary if you wish to keep your home free from problems related to rain runoff from your roof.
Over time, debris consisting of mud, sticks, leaves, sand, and more will all build up in your gutters. This is fairly normal—winds carry debris, the debris is left on your roof, and rain washes the debris from your roof down into your gutters themselves. The debris then stays in your gutters until it can either be washed away or until you remove it. However, all the while, this debris can accumulate and build up into a clog that prevents your gutters from actually draining away collected water. This can present a number of problems for your roof, including placing a lot of extra weight on your gutters that can damage your eaves, and it can also create ponds that cause significant water damage to certain areas of your roof.
We recommend cleaning your rain gutters at least once a year, ideally early every fall when the dry season begins to transition into autumn. Typically, a small gardening trowel will be good enough to loosen and remove debris from your gutters, but those who have a shop or garage vacuum might also consider using it to get the job done (with a long enough hose, they work rather well).
