Gutters Glen Ridge NJ

Why does my Glen Ridge home need gutters?

Gutters play an important function in our homes in Glen Ridge NJ, as they drain rainwater from the roof, and then direct it away from the foundation and landscaping of your home. Because gutters can catch rainwater off the roof, they prevent the runoff from the rainwater from splashing against your siding and windows. Also, a properly functioning gutter system can help to prevent water damage that might happen when rainwater seeps into your home, causing damages to your wall and ceiling.

What’s the right time to clean my gutters?

Typically, you should clean your gutters at least twice every year—during the fall and after winter. Right after the winter season, as you enter the spring, you need to get rid of all debris and dirt that might have gotten into your gutters during the winter season. Removing the debris from your gutters allows the water from spring rains to flow efficiently through your gutters and downspouts, and be directed to the right places. 

Also, leaves can get into your gutters during the autumn, and you will need to clear your gutters as you prepare for the winter season. When your gutters have dirt and other debris during the winter, there’s a higher risk of developing issues like clogged water freezes. 

How frequently should I clean my gutters?

As highlighted above, you should clean your gutters at least two times each year. However, there are some scenarios where you will need to clean your gutters frequently. For instance, if you have a large storm in your area, and leaves or branches have fallen into your roof, you will need to check and see if your gutters are clogged, and require cleaning. Similarly, if tree branches are hanging over your home, it’s guaranteed to drop leaves or pine needles, and this might force you to clean your gutters frequently. Cleaning your gutters frequently if many trees surround your home. Is essential. This is because the leaves act as the perfect hiding ground for pests and rodents. And by allowing them to stay in your gutters, you risk a serious infestation.

What causes my gutters to overflow?

No one loves overflowing gutters. However, it’s not a challenge to find the cause for your gutter overflow. First, you need to check how water is flowing out of your downspouts. If the downspouts are clogged with branches, leaves, and other debris, you need to clear them, and you might have solved the issue. 

In case your downspouts appear to be clear, you need to check the pitch and tilt of your gutters. If the gutters are tilted away from your home, the overflow issue might be because of the tilt angle. Also, you should make sure that your gutters have the correct pitch, which should direct rainwater towards the downspouts. If the pitch is too steep, it can cause overflow near the downspout. If the pitch is not too steep, on the other hand, rainwater might start pooling in one area. 

The last and potential cause of overflowing gutters is having small gutters in your Glen Ridge, NJ home. In case you have a heavy downpour, it means your gutter system will not handle the large volumes of water, and it will end up overflowing. You should contact us immediately if you notice that your gutters are overflowing to rectify the problem by installing gutters that can handle larger volumes of water. Failing to do so, can lead to serious problems like basement flooding, damage to your landscaping, and foundation problems. Also, your gutters might start pulling away from your fascia boards, which can lead to costly damages.

How much does gutter installation cost?

The cost of your gutter installation will depend on several factors, like the design and size of your home, the gutter material needed, as well as the environmental factors surrounding your home. To get an accurate quote for your gutter installation project, someone from our company will need to evaluate your home. 

What is a gutter flashing and why do I need it?

Gutter flashing is an aluminum or steel strip of metal, that’s folded over the top of the inside part of your gutters. The advantage of having gutter flashing is extra protection against dry rot and water damage. The flashing also allows our gutter installers to control water flow, and prevent the possibility of having stagnant water in your gutters. 

Do I need leaf guards for my gutters?

Yes, leaf guards are an essential part of a gutter system. Leaf guards help to reduce the maintenance of your gutter system and ensure that rainwater keeps flowing optimally. Also, since they help to keep your gutters clear of debris, they prevent the possibility of overflowing gutters, which can cause issues like dry rot and damage to your gutter. 

Installing leaf guards doesn’t mean that your roof will be free of debris, but it won’t get in your gutters. However, you will need to blow off the debris off your roof and leaf guards regularly. If you need more information about the different types of leaf guards, as well as their costs and benefits, contact Tidewater Gutters today.
