Not only do leaky gutters cause problems with water destroying your roof or create water problems in your basement, they look unsightly. During the winter you could end up with a massive ice build-up in your gutters leaving your roof vulnerable to severe damage and wet walls in your home or basement. If you have Seamless Gutters in Westchester County NY installed, all of these problems can be eliminated quickly and easily.
Gutters serve a variety of purposes. Gutters keep you dry when you walk out the door during a rain storm from the roof run-off. Gutters also protect your walls and basement by moving the water away from the home. If your gutters are leaking or if they are not draining at least 10 feet away from your home, it can create water problems in your basement. Water that runs from the gutters to the ground can put pressure against your basement walls creating cracks in your basement, mold and various water problems. If your gutters are leaking or not pitched correctly and overflow, this can create the same problems on the walls of your home or basement.
New Seamless Gutters in Westchester County NY can eliminate the dripping at the seams and keep the water from your home. Seamless gutters are just that, seamless. You may notice during a rain storm where the gutters are riveted together water dripping. If you attempt to put caulking at the seam the water then builds up in your gutter because it’s not free flowing to the drain. This just creates additional problems.
Your gutters also must have a proper backing behind the gutters of metal. If you have just wood, the water running off the roof will splash out from the gutters creating rot on the wood. This can lead to instability in the frame of your roof and home as well as mold issues. Don’t leave your home vulnerable to water damage or ice build-up in your gutters by leaky gutters.
