Knox’s Construction: Professional Gutter Services in Pittsburgh PA and Nearby Areas
Gutters are critical part of your home’s roofing system. You probably hardly take notice of it except for when a problem causes the gutters to fail. But to properly address repair or replacement issues, it is best you understand what gutters are, and exactly how they work.
What Are Gutters and What Are They For?
Gutters are attached along the roofline of your home and serve as your roof’s drainage system. A gutter system plays a very important role in protecting your home, as it directs rainwater away. When rain pours, water that falls on your rooftop is collected in the gutter, which then channels it through slopes and downspouts so that it gets poured out of the way — far from your siding, doors, windows and foundation — and water damage is avoided. Needless to say, without gutters, your roof may leak, or moisture damage can occur in other areas where moisture seeps in.
The Root of Most Gutter Problems
The most common gutter problem is clogging. When debris such as leaves and other natural materials starts to accumulate and decompose, it can cause blockage and overflow. Accumulated debris may also become a fire hazard. When your gutter is clogged, water backs up on other parts of your home where it shouldn’t, causing it to wear quickly. Roof damage, paint damage, mold, dry rot, siding damage, and even a damaged foundation may soon follow if the issue is not immediately addressed.
The Importance of Maintenance and Protection
Regular cleaning of your gutters requires removal of the debris and flushing to avoid clogs. We at Knox's Construction understand that the prospect of doing a regular gutter sweep is chore that doesn’t appeal to most homeowners. That is why we offer gutter cleaning services in Pittsburgh, so you won’t have to do the messy job yourself. Another benefit of having our roofing company do the job is that, should there be any part of your gutter that needs repair, we can fix it up quickly for you. We have an organized system for doing repairs and are equipped with the right tools for the job, so dents, holes, or loose areas are one less worry off your back.
Another thing you’d want to consider is having a gutter protection system installed. A gutter guard is an easy way to keep the debris out of your gutter system while allowing water to flow through freely — no more clogging worries!
