The purpose of any gutter is simply to control the flow of rain, directing it away from walkways or areas where pooling water could wash out your planters or damage the foundation of your home. Just about any gutter can perform this function — until it starts leaking or becomes clogged.
While regular gutters come precut and are sealed at the joints during installation, seamless gutters come in a single piece, which is then custom cut using specialized machinery. Our heavy-duty gutters are sections of aluminum that are custom-fitted to your home. The fact that they are seamless gives them an advantage over traditional gutters.
The main issue with regular gutters is the potential for leaks at the seams. Over time, the sealant can wear down, making every connection an opportunity for a leak. Presto’s premium gutters are built to last, providing years of protection. Even North Carolina’s heavy rainfall is no match for Presto’s heavy-duty seamless gutters.
Once you have durable gutters, there’s still the matter of those pesky clogs. If you’re like most homeowners, cleaning out your gutters is a dreaded chore. Having to climb a rickety ladder and rake out debris is not only a dirty job but dangerous.
Enter Presto gutter guards. Our heavy-duty fine mesh guards let the rainwater into the gutter while screening out unwanted debris. With our innovative self-cleaning design, Presto’s gutter guards can withstand even the heaviest rainfall without accumulating debris inside the gutter or on top of the guard.
While we offer expert seamless gutter installation, we can also add our guards to your new or existing gutters. Here’s a quick look at how Presto Guard works:
It’s easy to see how the addition of gutter guards can improve the performance of your gutter system, but keep in mind that not all gutter guards offer the same benefits as Presto. Lower-cost gutter solutions all have potential drawbacks.
For example, perforated metal gutter guards have relatively large holes that allow in tiny debris such as pine needle fragments or seeds dropped by birds. Brush gutter guards often have an issue with debris becoming caught in the bristles. Hooded or nose-over gutter guards have a poor design that’s not effective during heavy rainfall and can send water pouring over the edge of the gutter before it reaches the downspout.
Another common problem with cheap gutter guards is the improper position of micro-mesh covering. While most micro-mesh does work, debris can collect on top of it if it lays flat. The resulting overflow can damage your home and landscaping, defeating the purpose of having gutters.
Trusting Presto Garage & Gutter in Charlotte with your gutter guard installation will prevent the above issues because our self-cleaning mesh system prevents debris from getting through and allows that debris to easily slide off.
The price of your new gutters and gutter guards will depend on certain variables, such as the size of your home and how many downspouts you’ll need. Our Charlotte gutter experts will be happy to go over the details of your gutter’s installation with you and provide an accurate quote.
