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.

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.

Godzilla (El Niño) May Be Coming! Time to Install Rain Gutters for Your Home

Monday, August 24th, 2015

You may have heard news about the possible upcoming El Niño event, one so enormous that NASA climatologist Bill Patzert dubbed it “the Godzilla El Niño”: a destructive force that rises from the sea and smashes onto shore. This could be the largest El Niño since record-keeping started in 1950, far more powerful than the 1997–98 one responsible for extensive flooding and mudslides in California.
