Gutters aren’t glamorous, but they 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. Over time, leaving these items exposed to the elements can cost you money, increased maintenance headaches and decrease the visual appeal of your home. Luckily, Pelican Roofing offers custom-fit, seamless rain gutters that can be installed alongside your brand new roof or added onto your existing roofing system.
Some benefits of gutters include:
Unlike their traditional counterparts, seamless gutters minimize leaks and require minimal maintenance due to their continuous design. Every Pelican Roofing rain gutter system is expertly measured, fit and installed by our team of highly qualified professionals to provide the durability and weather protection your home needs.
There are several factors necessary for a gutter system to function properly and effectively protect your home:
Gutters installed at an incorrect pitch or level can prevent water from flowing properly,
creating standing water pockets that will eventually rust and leak.
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 must be placed in the proper areas, otherwise standing water or overflow can damage your property.
Supports and screws should be used to securely install the gutters to the fascia—not nails.
Placement of the gutter on the fascia—the long, straight board that runs under the lower edge of your roof—is critical as improper placement can lead to poor water flow and other costly issues.
