There is nothing more unsightly than water collecting on your roof. It looks terrible and poses a health risk. It needs to be removed before mold and mildew take root and damages the roof material and your personal health. This is where seamless aluminum gutter systems come into play! They are installed in one continuous length and do not require measuring or digging. Oklahoma Roofing will make sure to fix your roofing headache in no time.
Seamless, durable galvanized aluminum gutters are easy to keep, a long-lasting gutter system that looks fantastic on almost any residence! With five inches, six-inch, and seven-foot trough selections from Valentine’s Roofing, the right size gutter is available for each pitched roof in the Puget Sound area. The seamless design makes it possible to install them on a slope or over the edge of a roof, depending upon the situation. Once installed, maintenance is simple; no gutter installation is needed!
The process begins with the installation crew gathering the roofing materials. This includes tar paper and roofing shingles, if applicable. Tiles are then stacked vertically using the tar paper and then connected together. Next, a strong membrane is applied to the tar paper and then all of the pieces are glued together. This makes sure that the gutter installation is seamless and the seams are visible from the ground.
To complete the installation, the entire roofing system including the gutter, membrane, shingles, and flashing are painted with glossy black color. This allows it to blend seamlessly with the overhanging surface. Once the paint dries, the contractor adds the final touch by adding some weather stripping to the seams of the seams and then placing the flashing where the sheet metal was attached. Now it is ready to be installed!
Another pro tip is that the seamless aluminum gutter systems are easier to maintain than other traditional methods. That’s because the gutter does not have to be cleaned like traditional downspouts. It can be simply cleaned with soap and water to remove debris. Another pro about the seamless system is that it can easily prevent damage due to fast water flow. Also, since the gutter is seamless, any leaks that occur will not be noticeable to the naked eye.
One more thing about installing this type of roof is that you won’t have to replace or repair your gutters. This means more money saved for you. The reason is that rain gutters only last for so long before they need to be replaced. When it comes to commercial buildings, the risk of incurring roof damage from rain gutters is very high. Also, once gutters are replaced, there is no guarantee that the replacement roof system will last as long.
When choosing a company to perform the gutter installation, make sure the workers have experience installing the types of roofs you need. For example, installing aluminum gutter systems requires attaching the eaves to the home’s roof. The best way to know if the workers are experienced in doing this type of work is to ask for references. You can also request samples from the company so you can be sure the finished product is up to par with your expectations.
When choosing a company to perform your new gutter installation, it is important to call several different companies and compare pricing. Keep in mind that you will want to pay less for the project, but you want to ensure quality work. If you decide to install new gutters on your own, be sure to watch the work as it is being done and ask questions. It’s also important to let the workers know exactly how much work they will need to do on your home so they won’t be surprised with additional tasks.
