Importance of Checking Your Gutters


Working at Alloy Gutter I’ve learned exactly what I should be looking for when I have any gutter issues. I recently purchased a house and immediately noticed that I would have to fix the gutters as soon as possible. The previous owner had put in a nice patio but had failed to reroute the gutters so that the downspouts don’t pour out on the patio. There are a number of things that can happen when downspouts are pouring out onto a patio.

If the water is able to get under the patio you’ll start to notice that your patio will have a green tinge. This is from the water not being able to complete dry under the patio. The moisture will be trapped causing mold to start growing. Another issue that will arise is ice forming all over the patio. During the winter months when the water is sitting on the patio, it will eventually freeze and you will have a nice ice rink.

It was important to take note of these things as I made the biggest purchase of my life thus far. I came into work the next day and asked if they could take care of the issues and they were out that very day. If you want things taken care of quickly, such as your gutters, then Alloy Gutter is the right fit for you. Give us a call and we will be happy to assist you.
