Seamless Gutters Are Essential To Your Charlotte Roofing System.Okay, We have got your roofing issues squared away and the rain water is now running off of your roof, (rather than through it), and falling from the eaves of your house onto the ground below at your foundation. That is good, but it is not great...yet. Uncontrolled rain water, caused by downpours of a Charlotte storm, can wreak havoc to your home. Over time, you may see soil erosion around the foundation and water begin to seep into the crawl-space of your home. This water intrusion into your home, while not noticeable to you, can strongly impact your wallet. The condition under your living quarters has now become an environment where, among other things, termites, carpenter-ants, rodents and mold can thrive. We have all heard the horror stories surrounding these infestations and none of them end cheaply. There is always an expensive remedy. Uncontrolled rain water can also damage your home's siding, doors, door frames, window frames, garage doors, etc.. To minimize your exposure to the risks associated with free falling water from your roof, we recommend that an adequate rain gutter system be installed onto your home. A gutter system large enough with enough downspouts to handle the heavy rains that we experience periodically here in Charlotte. The next time it rains, wouldn't it be comforting to know that your water concerns are being taken care of by the combination of a beautiful, durable roofing system that incorporates a rain water controlling gutter system? We at Ridgeline Exteriors, are experienced and qualified to help you to control the rain water and direct it away from your home. Contact us today to evaluate your particular situation and let us design a gutter system that will help protect both, your home...and your wallet.
In the past, you would need to paint gutters to get the color that you want. Today, there are many colors available. We can bring you samples of all colors so that you can hold up to your house for comparison. Here are the available colors for reference. The actual colors may look slightly different depending on your computer monitor's resolution.
Fascia boards, (wood behind gutter), usually rots due to the lack of the gutters being cleaned and the water overflowing over the back of the gutter.In rare cases this wood can become rotted due to the roof being too short in areas where the rainwater is not making it into the gutter and constantly leaks behind the gutter.
And yes... the rot behind the gutter can be repaired during gutter replacement. We cut out the rotted section and replace with new section of the same sized wood and if needed, we wrap in aluminum to match exiting.
Except for rare instances, your new gutters will be installed in one day.
Extremely large complex jobs may take two days as will jobs needing extensive wood rot repair.
Our gutters are fastened with a special type of hidden hanger (bracket) which is hidden inside the gutter and attached to your home/building using a lag screw. Since a screw and not a nail is being used, it will not pull away from the house, sag or become off pitch as a nailed in gutter would.
