Rainy Season: Time to Think about Your Home’s Rain Gutters

Monday, October 24th, 2016

The rainy season is coming up, and if your home doesn’t have rain gutters—or its old gutters are falling apart and leaking—now is a good idea to call up professionals for rain gutter service. Along with our heating and cooling services for homes, we also offer service to install and repair rain gutters. Our trucks are equipped so that our technicians can fabricate new seamless gutters on the spot to custom fit your home.

The Job of Rain Gutters

What makes a good set of rain gutters so important?  There are a number of jobs that these gutters do for a home and property as they channel rainwater:

  • Gutters funnel the rainfall away from the sides of a house to prevent flooding. Rain that travels down the outside walls of a building can easily get into windows, the tops and sides of doors, and into the lower floors. The worst case scenario is when water starts to get under the house and create damage to the foundation.
  • Gutters protect a home from water damage by removing falling water away from the sides house. You can often tell a house without rain gutters with only a glance: you’ll see ugly streaks and staining down the exterior walls from running water. A house with rain gutters is a cleaner, nicer looking house!
  • Gutters stop soil erosion and soil expansion/contraction, which is another way to protect a home’s foundation.
  • Gutters can help your plants as well, since they stop heavy water run-off that can lead to major damage to gardens.

Call us and you can talk to one of our rain gutter professionals for a free estimate. We fabricate our own gutters on site and will see that you have a perfect installation of rain gutters for your home.

Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning manufactures, installs, and repairs rain gutters. Contact us for service in Bass Lake or elsewhere in the Central Valley.

Take Advantage of the HERO Program to Prepare for Winter Heating

Monday, October 17th, 2016

There’s still time to make upgrades to your home heating in time for the arrival of winter weather. For example, if you have an old furnace that costs more and more to run each season, arrange to have a high-efficiency furnace installed to replace it. Or you might consider having an entirely new type of heating system put in. On a smaller scale, updating from an old thermostat to a new “smart” thermostat can also make a significant difference in your house.

Our trained technicians are here to take care of the improvements for your home that will help you enjoy both comfort and energy savings. And since we’re a HERO Program-registered contractor, we can make these upgrades and installments more affordable than ever.

Another great evening at the Hotdog dinner at the Madera Fair

Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning, along with Randy and Sheryl Berry and friends, hosted the Annual Hot Dog dinner on Sept 6th, 2016. The 4H and FFA kids were busy preparing to show their livestock animals the day before the Madera Fair opened. Providing dinner is a fun way to support our local hardworking kids and their families. Randy and Sheryl and friends started this tradition over 25 years ago. Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning partnered with Randy and Sheryl over 10 years ago on this great event.

Our crew grilled more than 500 hotdogs that evening. Dinners were complete with drinks, chips and all the hotdog fixings’. This is an annual tradition in Madera that everyone at Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning looks forward to attending and gives us a chance to visit with the kids and their families.
