Home Gutter Repair
Clogged and damaged gutters can cause major issues for your home’s roof and foundation.
Gutters Protect Your Home
Gutters are an integral aspect of any roofing system and therefore important to the protection of your home. A gutter system is designed to let a roof shed rainwater and melting snow and ice as quickly as possible and then channel it in a manner that protects trim, siding, and your foundation. If gutters are clogged or damaged, they can lead to overflowing water, ice dams, and excessive water accumulation, which will all result in additional harm to your home. Tycos is a fully licensed and insured construction company that specializes in roofing and siding but also gutter installation and gutter repair.
Common Reasons for Gutter Repair
Many gutter problems are the result of improper installation, which is why it’s so important to choose a company that designs and installs high-quality gutter systems. Another issue is gutters—particularly those without gutter guards—that aren’t cleaned frequently enough and therefore clog, which leads to increased wear and tear. Gutters may require some maintenance over their lives. Fasteners can weaken, and gutters can pull away from the home. Seams may leak over time, which is why seamless gutters are superior. You should also watch for gutters that are sagging or show signs of rust in addition to downspouts that do not channel water far enough away from the foundation.
Damaged Gutters Cause More Problems
Homes in need of gutter repair are susceptible to a wide range of issues. Roof damage is the most obvious concern and can lead to leaks and structural damage. Your home may be prone to mold and mildew, in addition to the damage to your siding and fascias, and other trim. Water that is not channeled appropriately will accumulate near your foundation. This can lead to excess moisture in your crawl space or basement and eventually foundation cracks that can become quite serious with time.
Emergency Gutter Repair
Tycos offers emergency gutter repair services, and if you notice a gutter issue that has occurred with time or due to storm damage, we encourage you to call us right away. We’ll send one of our gutter experts to your home to inspect the gutter system, provide you with an honest and professional opinion on how to proceed, and answer any questions that you may have. Whether you choose to repair or replace your gutter system, count on us to deliver superior workmanship in a timely manner.
Gutter Replacement Services
Tycos also installs seamless gutters, and we design each new system for the individual home. While we do repair gutters, gutter replacement is often the more cost-effective option when the gutter system is old or has suffered extensive damage. We’re happy to meet with you and help weigh the pros and cons of gutter replacement versus gutter repair, and if you choose a replacement, you can count on seamless gutters precisely measured for your home, heavy-duty hangers, and, if you choose, gutter guards.
Install Gutter Guards for Added Protection
Tycos also installs and repairs gutter guards. Our team can install them to an existing gutter system, such as when we provide gutter repair services, and we can install them alongside new gutters. We highly recommend gutter guards. While they do increase your initial costs, they lower your costs over the life of the gutter system. Gutters with guards don’t need to be cleaned as often. They will not clog, and they are less susceptible to other gutter problems, such as bird, rodent, and insect infestations.
