Gutter Repair and Installation in Michigan
Many homeowners tend to take their gutters and downspouts for granted until they have an issue with flooding. By redirecting water runoff from your roof away from your foundation, your gutters and downspouts are responsible for guarding your home against water damages. When you need gutter repair and installation in the Lansing, Howell, Brighton, Owosso and Grand Haven area, you can turn to Weather Vane Roofing. We’re experienced with many types of gutter systems to provide reliable gutter maintenance for your home.
Replacing Outdated and Wrong-Sized Gutter Systems
Some of the most common issues we see result from outdated gutter systems or those that are the wrong size for your home. An outdated gutter system could be damaged or rusty, hurting both your home’s curb appeal and foundation if ignored for too long. If your gutters are too small for your home, they’ll often get clogged with leaf and twig debris. This becomes an issue because it misdirects the water runoff to spill over the sides and closer to your home’s foundation. If you think either of these common gutter issues could be a cause for concern for your home, don’t hesitate to call us for an inspection.
A Closer Look at Different Types of Gutter Systems
Today’s gutter systems come in many different varieties, including wood, steel, copper, and aluminum. Weather Vane Roofing specializes in seamless aluminum and copper gutters. The most common type is probably aluminum due to its affordability, durability, and versatility. However, if you live in a historic neighborhood, it’s not uncommon to see wood, steel, and copper gutters and downspouts because they lend more historical charm. Copper gutters won’t rust, also making them a durable choice.
Gutters also come in many styles, ranging from six-inch rounds and quarter rounds to K-style profiles, which have a distinct look due to their curved fronts and flat backs. Knowing which size of gutter is appropriate for your home is extremely important. Depending on the size of your yard, you can also add downspout extensions to add extra length to direct the water runoff to specific areas of your landscaping. We also provide leaf guards for gutters (also referred to as gutter guards) to help prevent clogs and overflow issues.
