Let’s face it—we live in a DIY (do it yourself) society. If we can do something ourselves, it’s hard to reconcile ourselves to pay for that service. We won’t lie—in some cases, rain gutters can be cleaned out by individuals. But it is important to recognize when a job calls for a professional.
Only contractors can install seamless rain gutters. Seamless rain gutters (also known as Continuous Rain Gutters) are one of the best guttering systems available because they are so versatile, eliminate the ‘ugly seams’ that sectional gutter pieces have, and also reduce the possibility of leaks, which sectional gutter pieces are prone to.
A second reason is a safety. Most people aren’t used to working on roofs or with complex roof lines. If your roof has tiles or a shake covering, it is best to call a professional to ensure that the best work efficiently and safely.
Rain Gutters are troughs that direct the flow of water off your roof and channel it with proper slopes, which then carries the water down a spout to the ground and away from the siding, windows, and foundation of your house.
Open Gutters are the most effective gutters to have. It is easy to clean “open ” gutters from leaves and other types of debris which may get clogged and become a fire hazard.
