The Woodlands Roofing Expert also provides a fantastic and very professional gutter and downspout service. These are an important part of any residential or commercial building and have two main needs that they fulfill. The first is that they not only capture but direct run-off water from the roof away from the bast of the house. The second is that they help protect interior surfaces and the grading that runs around the perimeter.
If not properly channeled, run-off water can end up running down the side of the house and getting into the walls or even erode the soil under the foundation of the home. This, of course can cause much larger and long term problems like the cracking of the foundation or mold and mildew growing in the spaces between walls.
Gutters have many different shapes, sizes, and styles that can be selected for your home, office or business place. There are also a number of conditions that must be taken into consideration before deciding on a particular type or size. The most important factor to consider is how much run off water you can expect to receive in your area.
Downspouts are the final part of the system, and they help direct the water down to the ground or drainage system as neatly as possible. This is another decision best left to the professionals, because deciding where to place downspouts and where to direct the water are very important things to think about when controlling the surface water that can be left in the vicinity of the home.
Sometimes extensions need to be placed on the end of the downspout to direct water laterally and away from the foundation. In the case of no extension being used, large blocks known as splash guards are used to prevent the water that discharges from eroding the soil over time.
We not only repair and replace older gutter systems that have become damaged over the years, we also install entirely new gutters and downspouts on more recently built domiciles.
Our gutter technicians are fully licensed and insured so that they and you are both protected from liability. We take every precaution to make your experience a simple and hassle-free one. Don't take your time up and consider diy or do it yourself projects, leave this one to the professionals. We have the best prices and deals in the Houston area, and can save you lots of money on costs.
We are familiar with all types of gutter and downspout materials, and have worked with aluminum, copper, galvanized steel, and plastic. Plastic is a good choice for aesthetics because it can be purchased in any color. The only real downside is that it can bend and warp over time and lose its effectiveness. Galvanized steel is strong and resists expansion and contraction, which makes it good for colder areas. Rust can be a problem, however. Copper is more expensive, and requires more skilled workers to install and repair. The advantage is that is doesn't rust, lasts for a very long time, and doesn't require paint to look nice and resist the weather. Aluminum is also good because it doesn't rust. It, unlike copper, it easy to maintain also. The downside is that it is somewhat weak and can be easily dented or broken.
