Gutter Protection System
It rains in Ontario. Sometimes it rains heavily while other times it just drizzles lightly. Unfortunately, you can’t control the weather. If you could, you wouldn’t need a Landmark Home Solutions Gutter Protection System to keep rainwater from destroying your home.
Surprisingly, yes, rainwater can do quite a bit of damage to your property.
Those tiny droplets can wreak havoc on the outside of your home and even cause flooding and leaks on the inside if you’re not careful. Since you don’t have time to stand outside in the rain making sure your home isn’t getting destroyed, let us install our gutter system instead.
What are gutters?
Gutters, also known as eavestroughs, is a rain catching system that is placed on your roof. The gutter collects and diverts rainwater and snow away from the roof’s edge to keep it from spilling down. The water that is caught in the gutter is then fed into a downspout (sometimes referred to as a downpipe, leader or conductor) that lies at edge of the roof. Finally, the water flows down into a rain barrel (otherwise called a cistern) where it can be collected.
How important are gutters?
Gutters are one of the most important facets of our home’s exterior. Although they are found outside, they are essential in keeping the interior of our homes dry. Without a proper gutter system in place on our roof, rainwater can seep into our homes and create leaks as far down as our basements. Gutters also protect your home’s foundation and exterior walls as water is channelled away from the base preventing erosion, paint deterioration and staining from excess exposure.
Our Gutter Protection Systems
Think of your gutters as a control mechanism. They control the amount of water that falls onto your home’s exterior and prevent leaks inside. Without our superior protection systems, your gutters can become clogged with debris which creates moisture build up. This buildup rots everything from your home’s foundation to the roof to the fascia.
Moreover, older gutters have been known to pull away from the fascia. These are the horizontal boards that attach the building to the gutter and when they’ve been pulled away from, it causes severe moisture damage because water will run behind the gutter instead of into it. With our Landmark Home Solutions’ Gutter Protection System, you won’t have to worry about rot and damage. Our system is anchored to your home with a Hurricane Bracket. This bracket also runs below your roof’s first two shingles, keeping the space between it and your gutter dry at all times, no matter how hard it rains. Finally, water is directed into the gutter and debris falls away instead of collecting on the roof.
