Gutter systems serve to divert rainwater down and away from your home’s foundation, helping to prevent pooling, erosion, and other water-related issues around your property. Without gutters, rainwater and melting snow from your roof pours directly down off your roof’s drip edge.
Over time, or during a significant rainfall like we’ll sometimes get here in Waxhaw, significant erosion, washed-out beds, wet rot, mold, and mildew can all eat away at your home’s exterior. If you have a basement, problems with flooding can also be a likely scenario.
Here at Presto Garage & Gutter in Waxhaw, our high-quality seamless gutter provides many decades of useful life, channelling water where it’s not likely to cause any more issues for your property.
If you don’t have gutter guards installed, you’ll likely need to get up on a tall ladder and rake out all the dead leaves and other debris from your gutters at least twice a year. Clogged gutters can lead to back-ups which then can cause additional water-related damages since the gutters can’t function properly. Gutter guards help to prevent clogged gutters with a mesh system installed directly over the seamless gutters.
However, keep in mind that not all gutter guards are created equal. The Presto Guard takes a completely re-engineered approach to the two prevailing issues with many gutter guards on the market today:
Neither of these scenarios is ideal which is why the Presto Guard is so revolutionary. With a self-cleaning micro-mesh system, our gutter guards come with a No-Clog guarantee, so cleanouts are absolutely a thing of the past. Our micro-mesh system is also engineered with a slope design to be able to handle even the heaviest Waxhaw rainfall events with ease. Additionally, the Presto Guard fits perfectly over your existing gutters, while also keeping your roof warranty 100% intact.
No, your seamless gutters will still work properly even without gutter guards. However, the big difference is that you’ll need to add gutter maintenance to your list of to-dos in order to keep them working optimally. Without gutter guards, your gutters will start accumulating debris fairly quickly. Within a few months, your gutters can be completely clogged with leaves and other debris that will need to be cleaned out to prevent a backup.
Presto’s self-cleaning gutter guards come with a No-Clog guarantee which means climbing up a tall ladder a few times a year to clean out your gutters will be a thing of the past.
There are a few tell-tale signs that your gutters are reaching the end of their useful life and should be replaced including:
