As a homeowner, chances are you want to continue improving every aspect of your home – both inside and out. When it comes to that time, replacing your gutters can be a relatively easy job done by a professional who knows what they are doing and how to get the job done in the correct manner. Before having the entire gutter system in your home replaced, however, there are some things you need to consider. Take a moment to mull things over before calling in the professionals at Peak Roofing & Construction.
Size Things Up
The first thing to consider before having your gutters replaced is the sizing of your current setup. If you live in an area with heavy rainfall, oversized gutters can handle more water, pushing it away from your home and preventing potential flood damage from ever occurring. The standard size for most home gutter systems is around 5”, though many homeowners these days are investing in the larger 6” gutters to ease the flow of water.
Making the choice between a standard or oversized gutter systems will completely depend on the roofline of your home, the overall surface area, and the pitch of the roof. Our professional roofing technicians can determine these factors and meet your needs.
Color and Material
If you like to think of yourself as someone with an eye for matching materials, then you should consider the correct color and material for your gutters to go right alongside your home. There are numerous styles available, including aluminum, copper, and galvanized. These all come in different colors to match your home’s paint job.
