Are you wondering if it’s time to install new gutters? Your gutters take a lot of abuse throughout the years with the changing seasons and weather and wind that plagues our region communities. Some signs include deterioration and visible cracks on any areas, signs of flooding around your home’s foundation or rotting wood trim and peeling paint. If you see any of these issues around your home or your gutters are old, it is time for an update.

Keep these things in mind when you are ready to install new gutters:

Consider size: Your gutters have a key job to do: get water away from your home as it rains or as snow melts from your roof. The size of your gutters makes a difference. If you do not have the right size, it can affect the flow of your water. The size of your roof, pitch and our weather patterns can all play a part in this decision. At Berg Home Improvements, we work with both 5-inch and 6-inch aluminum gutters.

Weak points: Too many seams on your system can become vulnerable points down the road. That is why our team at Berg provides seamless aluminum gutter systems that are created right on-site at your home. This ensures we can fit your system to your place.

Downspout placement: Your downspouts are what takes your water away from your home’s foundation. You need to have them properly placed and the correct size to prevent damage and erosion. We can install either 3×4” oversized downspouts or stand 2×3# downspouts. Oversized options can help prevent clogs.

Gutter upkeep: If you are concerned about keeping your new gutters clean, then you should consider a system that has vented grates to allow for trapping debris, such as leaves and twigs. Our team can install a Leaf Relief Gutter Protection System that will keep water flowing. There is an access panel to allow for easy cleaning when it is needed.

Exterior elements: When you are replacing your gutters, it is also a good idea to have other exterior elements of your home checked out as these components all work together to keep your place looking and operating its best. Your roof may need attention as well and your fascia, which runs horizontally under your roof’s edge. It is always a good idea to have a thorough inspection to see what additional projects may need to be completed.
