Renovations on the Victorian Reed House are moving along nicely. Since the project is only minutes from the office and I was already out running an errand for work, I decided to stop by myself and see this major project underway. Currently, our amazingly talented crew is working on replacing the lining on the internal gutter system all the way around the multi-dimensional roofline.
This week on the WAVY 10 Hampton Roads Show, Pete Johnson, our Remodeling Superintendent, discussed some of the benefits of the Gutter Topper® system for Chesapeake roofing. Gutter Topper is a patented gutter cover that keeps out leaves, twigs, pine needles and other debris.
Gutters are an important part of your home. They may be easy to overlook, but they actually do a lot to protect your home from damage. Gutters redirect water away from your walls, windows, doors, landscape and even the foundation of your home.
Your gutter is vital to your home’s overall condition. It should move rainwater safely away from your home, channeling it into a central drainage system where it can’t cause harm. But it’s often difficult to keep your gutter clean, clear and in the best shape.
Gutters protect your roof and house from water damage as they direct water away from your property. When not maintained properly, they can cause serious problems that can lead to costly repairs and replacements. To avoid issues and headaches, it’s best to know common problems you may encounter, ways to spot them, and means to solve them.
