Gutters are troughs that collect rain running off a roof and channel it, with proper slopes, to downspouts that carry the rain water to the ground and away from your siding, windows, doors and foundation. The most commonly used gutter – open gutters – should be regularly cleaned of leaves and debris in order to function properly.
In the course of collecting water, open rain gutters also collect leaves, acorns, pine needles, and other debris which can cause clogs anywhere in the gutter itself or sometimes in the downspouts. In dry conditions clogged gutters are a fire hazard; and during heavy rains, clogged gutters and downspouts can cause rainwater to overflow, potentially causing substantial damage to your building, landscaping and basement.
Westech has installed aluminum, galvanized sheet metal and copper downspouts and gutters.
A form of leaf protection allows water to flow freely through the gutter bottom, while preventing debris from falling into the gutter and interrupting the flow.
This interest in maintenance reduction through debris filtering has grown more popular in recent years, along with an aging population of homeowners. Though it adds cost to the initial installation, these costs can be mitigated over the years by the safety benefits and /or eliminating costs associated with gutter cleaning which can range from $100 to $400 depending on the size of the house and number of gutters.
There are now many gutter guards or leaf protection products available to the homeowner. They have evolved into several configurations and come in a broad spectrum of materials and prices, and with varying degrees of effectiveness. Many good gutter installers carry all types. Some are add-on devices that fit over existing gutters. Others are complete systems that require replacing existing gutters.
