Rain Gutters Care Tips
Rain gutters are one of the most overlooked and undervalued protections on your home. You don’t notice them, they work unfailingly (that is until you don’t maintain them and they fail), and they protect your home by carrying water away from the home’s foundation. Water that drains into the home’s foundation can cause damage. Water damage can be extremely expensive.
Rain gutters can become damaged when they are improperly installed, or when they are left unchecked and uncleaned for lengths of time. Oftentimes, rain gutters that are not cleared of leaves in the fall, can back up with un-drained water, and that water can freeze and refreeze in the winter months, damaging the gutter systems and sparking the potential for the devastating ice dam. Rain gutters should be installed with downspouts that progress to elbows which move the water out and away from the home.
If your home’s rain gutters are damaged, or have just survived one too many Montana winters to be effective, it may be time to consider a new gutter system at Lynnrich.
Lynnrich sells seamless rain gutters that seemingly blend into the home’s façade. These gutter systems carry water effectively from the home’s foundation, and maintain a home’s curb appeal in the process. Because the gutters are installed by professionals, and heavy duty hardware is used to attach the gutters to the home, there is little chance for sagging. Seamless gutters also use seamless hangers, so the old, more invasive and noticeable, method of hanging gutters is obsolete. Also, certain products such as gutter guards, which prevent leaves and grass from going into the gutters and clogging them, while, at the same time, allowing water through, make the gutters practically maintenance-free.
The gutters sold at Lynnrich come in numerous color choices to match or contrast with your home’s siding. Also, even though the gutters are seamless and maintenance free, gutters will still include elbows, downspouts, and miters that travel water away from the foundation.
