Rain Gutters Colorado Springs don’t receive a lot of attention; they’re usually thought of as just being a minor, ancillary part of our homes, but it’s not what they provide that is important, it’s what they prevent. Without gutters and downspouts, precipitation would run off of our roofs and begin to pool at the base of our homes, weakening the foundation and creating a possible flooding situation in our basements. When you take that into account, the service provided by these runs of metal or vinyl suddenly become much more important. That’s why they need to be tended to on a regular basis.
There are certain circumstances that are optimal times for repairing or replacing your gutters. The first one is during a re-roofing of your home. This is a good time to take care of a number of related items like the flashing around vents and chimneys, and damaged fascia boards as well as gutters. The second time when it makes sense to take care of any gutter issues is when you’re installing siding on your home. When the old downspouts have to be removed for siding installation, it’s a great time to inspect them as well as the gutters and perform any repairs or replacements that are called for.
Gutters come in a variety of designs and materials. Aluminum, copper, steel and vinyl are the most common materials used in their construction, and their designs are determined by their cross-section. Gutters can come in a variety of sizes, depending on their use, but a 5 inch standard “K” style residential gutter can hold two gallons of water, and commercial “box” style gutters can go up to 8 inches or larger. The kind of gutter system that is best for your needs will be a function of the building’s fascia, the slope of the roof, and the roofing material used.
