Seamless Gutters For Florida Homes

With the amount of rainfall in Florida, protecting homes from water damage should be an important priority for homeowners. Aside from having a roof in working order, there are steps you can take to prevent water damage in the long run. Seamless gutters are an easy and affordable option to divert roof run-off water away from your home.

Although gutters help reduce water damage repairs, they are not without maintenance of their own. Gutters need to be cleared of leaf litter to make sure water and debris are always able to move along the gutter system freely. Still, it takes less effort to periodically maintain gutters than to repair water damage to your home.

 

Alliance Group’s Complete Roofing Package

When you hire Alliance Group for a roof replacement service, we offer a discount on gutters.

We want to ensure you receive good value for your home improvement investment. We offer a larger size than the standard 5″ gutter because 6″ gutters carry approximately 40% more water and debris. Gutter seams are weak spots for leaks. We use seamless gutters to ensure that won’t be a problem.

Our roof replacement and gutter services are backed by our in-house labor warranty. If you choose to go with a shingle roof,  we will provide GAF’s Golden Pledge Warranty which covers labor and materials. Contact us to schedule a site visit with one of our estimators.

 

Common Water Damage On Homes Without Gutters

Overtime, splashing rainwater will soil and cause water damage to the side of your home. One of the most visible ways that a lack of seamless gutters cause damage is to the soil around your home. The ground where rainfall concentrates on will erode sooner or later. You will see mud splashed onto your home’s exterior and “bald spots” on the lawn. This messy situation with added chores can easily be avoided by having seamless gutters installed on your home.

Water damaged fascia boards are another common problem with gutterless older homes. If you see waterlogged wood fascia or siding, it’s a good idea to inspect the roof and attic. These are signs that you may have a roof leak or it may be time to replace your roof altogether.

Gutter Accessories To Reduce Maintenance

Screen gutter guards on a home.

To reduce the amount of maintenance use gutter add-ons to help keep debris from clogging up your gutter system. Gutter guards are available in many different shapes and sizes. The most common type of guard is a mesh or perforated metal screen. This type of gutter guard will keep large debris out of the way. Foam filter inserts are another method for maintaining clog-free drains.

Overall, seamless gutters should be a part of your home’s roofing system. They are a low-cost way to prevent damage to the exterior of your house. Call Alliance Group to schedule a free consultation with one of our estimators. After inspecting your roof, we will give you a quote. Call 800-822-ROOF.
