Installing Aluminum Gutter

Gutter systems are the most effective way to direct storm water away from your roof, so that excess moisture doesn’t cause long-term damage to your shingles and to the underlying structure of your roof. But water doesn’t just affect your roof, it can also do extensive damage to the foundation of your house and the soil and shrubbery around your home. The premier roofing experts at R2 Roof Guys are ready to help you select and install high quality aluminum gutters for residents living in Garland and the greater Dallas area.

If your house doesn’t have rain gutters, water from a storm will run off your roof and gather on the ground. But that’s not even the worst part because water can also penetrate your exterior walls, breaking down the stucco, siding and brick. The roofing contractors at R2 Roof Guys can help you solve this problem by installing rain gutters that will direct water off your roof and into a downspout that safely carries the water away from your landscape and foundation.

There are other reasons that you need to install gutters, including:

Keeps Your Basement Free of Water

If you own a house with a basement that doesn’t have gutters, excess water can seep through the basement walls, trigger the growth of mold and mildew, and eventually create pools of water in the basement that can cause extensive damage. Gutters carry water away from the foundation of your house, reducing the chances of basement flooding.

Guard Against Ugly Stains

Excess water that isn’t directed away from your roof will splash to the ground and splatter against the outer structure of your house. Eventually, all that water will begin to stain the siding of your home, and lower your house’s curb appeal.

Protects the Foundation of Your Home

Properly installed gutters can protect your home’s foundation by helping to reduce how much water seeps into the soil around the foundation. Under normal circumstances, soil is supposed to contract and expand, which helps keep the foundation stable. But too much water interferes with soil stability, which can damage your foundation.

  • Less Expensive – Aluminum gutters are less expensive than other types of metal like iron or steel.
  • Durable – Because it is made through an oxidation process, aluminum isn’t prone to rust like iron, and that means it is more durable than other types of metal.
  • Doesn’t Fade – Aluminum doesn’t fade, which means that it will hold its color for a long time.
  • Many Prefinished Color Options – Aluminum comes in many prefinished colors, so you have a wide variety of colors to match the color scheme of your house.
  • Option To Install Seamless Gutter – A seamless gutter means that the gutter is made from one piece of aluminum that is flexible enough to fit any length necessary for installation. One of the main benefits of seamless gutters is that there are no sections or seams, so it helps to eliminate leaks. Another benefit is that seamless gutters are more aesthetically pleasing than sectional gutters, enhancing your home’s curb appeal.

The Process of Installing Water Gutters

It’s important to hire a professional roofing company to install your aluminum gutters, because these types of roofing installations require precision.

The process of installing water gutters begins with selecting the right components like downspouts, outlet fittings, gutter screens, and the drain system. Other components we use to mount water gutters include fasteners, corner pieces, end caps, and downspout elbows.

After that, the work involves precise measurements, ensuring that the gutter has the right slope once it’s mounted, and placing a splashguard under the gutter to keep water away from the soil.

Obviously, this is just an abbreviated version of what we do as professional roofers, but it gives you an idea about the precision necessary to ensure that the water gutter works the way it’s supposed to work.

It’s important to remember that even a small mistake in the gutter installation process can cause problems for you down the road. That’s why it’s essential that you hire Garland roofers with a strong record of installing aluminum gutters.
