Your gutters are one of your home’s most essential components, helping ensure your home remains dry and damage-free. That’s why it’s important to understand your gutter options when it’s time to replace them.——————————————– CONTINUE READING ——————————————–When Should You Replace Your Gutters? While mostly overlooked, your gutters play a huge role in keeping your home protected from extensive water damage. They do wear down over time, however. Check if there are considerable cracks, holes and rust spots in your gutter system. Are the fasteners broken? Maybe, your gutters are already sagging and pulling away from your home. If you see these warning signs and more on your current system, have them replaced promptly by a local gutter pro.Which Is Better: Sectional or Seamless Gutters?Sectional gutters are the traditional choice for many homes. They come in several pieces which are strung together along your roofline by adhesive or connectors. While easy and cost-effective to install, sectional gutters are prone to leaking because of their many seams. You might want to try seamless gutters instead. This exceptional option uses a single, continuous piece of metal that’s custom made to fit perfectly onto your roof. Asher Lasting Exteriors offers ABC Seamless® gutters that allow for smooth draining performance and come with sleek good looks, thanks to a special surface protection system.What Material Should You Choose?Gutters are available in different materials, including the most popular options: aluminum. Aluminum gutters are lightweight and easy to install, and offer durable and long-lasting performance, but steel gutters are preferred. Steel can out perform the harsh winters and heavy rains of Wisconsin. They come in a variety of colors that can easily match your home’s exterior palette. Copper is a premium choice that provides a warm, classic look for your home. They resist mold and mildew, and don’t require painting to keep them looking good. Is It a Good Idea to Invest in Gutter Protection?Always! You can ensure smoother and more worry-free performance from your gutter system if you have gutter protection in place. Asher Lasting Exteriors carries high-quality options from Gutter Helmet®. The Gutter Helmet protection system comes with a patented nose-forward design that allows rainwater to drain easily through your gutters while shedding off leaves, pine needles and other loose debris so they fall harmlessly to the ground. This prevents gutter congestion, a common yet serious issue.Look no further than Asher Lasting Exteriors for all your gutter and gutter protection needs.
