If your gutters are damaged or leaking, they could be doing more harm than good. You should schedule service if your gutter system is...
Your gutter system preserves your topsoil against erosion and protects your exterior siding and trim from backsplash water that will damage paint and cause wood rot requiring expensive repairs.
When a gutter clogs, bad things happen! In a downpour, a clogged gutter will fill quickly with water and begin to overflow. Water gets dumped exactly where you don't want it, against your walls. As the soil around your foundation becomes saturated with water, hydrostatic pressure often causes water to leak into the basement.
In addition to causing basement flooding, clogged and overflowing gutters can damage patios, decking, and plants around the perimeter of your house. EcoShield will have your gutter and downspout installation complete within a few hours and have you ready to protect your home from our unpredictable Carolina weather!
Most homes experience damage from water, even with gutters and downspouts. There are several factors that may cause this. If a gutter system becomes clogged with leaves, twigs and other debris, it will overflow onto your home and yard.
If your gutters are pitched improperly or are undersized for the roof area that they drain, they will not be able to handle the water that they take on. Some properties require the downspouts to be extended in order to direct runoff farther away from the house. Five-inch K-style gutters or 6-inch half-rounds are the most common residential sizes.
These are able to handle the rainfall on most houses in most parts of the country. Houses with big, steep roofs or those located in climates prone to heavy downpours may need wider gutters and extra downspouts to keep rainwater from overflowing. North Carolina gets 44 inches of rain, on average, per year. The US average is 39 inches of rain year. Let us help you be ready for our summer rainy season!
