GUTTERS BY PELICAN ROOFINGSeamless Gutters Custom Fit & Installed
Gutters aren’t anything to write home to mom about, but they can do more to protect your investment than you realize. Rain gutters are an integral part of your newly installed or previously existing roofing system. Siding, windows, trim features, landscaping and many other cosmetic or functional parts of your home can be protected to a great extent by gutters. Leaving these items to fend for themselves out in the elements can cost you money over time, increased maintenance headaches, and decrease the visual appeal of your home. Luckily, Pelican Roofing is on the job! We offer completely custom, tailor-fit to your home rain gutters that can be installed alongside your brand new roof, or added onto an existing roofing system. Some benefits of gutters include:
- Protection for the foundation of your home through better drainage
- Avoid getting soaked when walking into your home
- Guard bricks, trim, landscaping and more from stains and rot
- Redirect water from doors, windows, and other leak-susceptible areas
- Prevents mud holes and erosion of areas of your yard
A gutter system includes the actual hardware necessary to construct the gutter system, and the the installation of that hardware. Seamless gutters are the only option you should consider for your home due to their superiority over seamed gutters, and they are what Pelican Roofing offers. Every home rain gutter system is measured, fit, and installed by the qualified professionals from our staff. There are several factors and components necessary for a gutter system to function properly:
Pitch: Gutters installed at an incorrect pitch or level can prevent water from flowing properly and creates standing water pockets which will eventually rust and leak.
Flashing: Flashing hardware is installed as a buffer between the gutter and the roof line. Improper flashing can cause damage to shingles or your roof’s deck, leading to major repair costs.
Downspouts: Downspouts must be placed in the proper areas, otherwise standing water or overflow will damage your property.
Supports: Gutters should be installed securely to the fascia via supports and screws – not nails.
Placement: Placement of the gutter on the fascia of your home is critical. The fascia is the long, straight board that runs under the lower edge of your roof. Improper placement can lead to poor water flow and other issues.
