A leaking roof doesn’t always originate from a problem on the roof surface. In some cases, the gutters are the main reason for the leak. A properly installed gutter system will protect your home from water damage, and while it’s tempting to install it on your own, there are dangers to DIY gutter installation. Tedrick’s Roofing discusses more.
Gutter Installation Is Difficult
Installing gutters is easier said than done. There is a steep learning curve because you have to do more than just install the rig. You’ll have to think about the fascia boards, the shingles and how the gutters will look on your exteriors. It’s easy to make an “amateur” mistake, but this can cost you in terms of performance.
Gutters and the Seams
The seams of the gutters are vital to its performance, and they are arguably the trickiest part of the whole system to install. Even a small space between the seams can cause your gutters to fail as it won’t do its job of diverting water away from your home perfectly. When we do gutter installation, we make sure that the system’s seams are properly installed so leaks don’t happen at all.
Gutters and the Pitch
Just like the seams, the pitch of your gutter system is a challenge and not something a first-timer can do flawlessly in one sitting. The reason is that you need to think of both performance and aesthetics when setting the pitch to ensure water flows downhill properly.
