Gutter Durham NC

Why does my Durham home need gutters?

This is a common question asked by most of our Durham, NC clients every day. But, there’s a simple answer to this—water. Protecting your home against water damage is one of the major reasons why we install gutters to homes in North Carolina. It doesn’t matter the current state of your home—water can cause the following issues:

  •         Backsplash – when the water falling from your roof hits the ground with too much force, the backsplash that follows can leave stains on your home. Also, this can cause mold and mildew to grow in the areas where the water has stained the building. Replacing or repairing these areas won’t solve the issue. Installing gutters is the only way to prevent backsplash related damages.
  •         Erosion and washouts – these are very common in areas that the water hits the ground. When left unattended, the erosions can become very deep, which can damage your landscaping and also foundation.

·         Flooded basements – it doesn’t matter whether your basement is finished or unfinished—water falling from your roof will always find a way in. This mostly happens when the water pools on the ground, and it lacks a place to go, other than the basement. Water falling from the roof can be in thousands of liters—and now imagine this falling on your foundation. With gutters, the water will be directed away from the foundation and basement, thus preventing your foundation from flooding, and also protecting your basement.

What type of gutters do you provide?

At Tidewater Gutters, we do provide different types of gutters. However, the most common gutters that we provide to most of the Durham homeowners are seamless aluminum gutters, which we make on-site.

Why do you need to hire a professional gutter installation?

When should I consider replacing my gutters?

  •         When you realize your gutters are leaky or clogged. Such gutters are the major causes of basement leaks and flooding, mold, as well as other foundation issues. Moreover, stagnant water in your gutters can lead to mosquito infestation.
  •         If your gutters are old and worn-out, consider replacing them, as they can have a negative impact on the value of your home.
  •         Old gutters can become dented or bent or can start pulling away from the fascia boards in a way that it’s impossible to reattach them. If that’s the case, then contact us to install a new gutter system.
