Most homeowners can figure out when it’s time to invest in a new roof; leaks, visibly damaged shingles or the amount of time that has passed since the last roof replacement are all typical signs. What homeowners may need a little help identifying is when their home’s gutters need repair or replacement. In fact, gutter installation is not something most homeowners think about at all, until it’s too late. If you have realized it’s time for new gutters, Kidd Luukko Corporation shares a few things you need to know first:
Get the Right Size
There is a right size of gutter for your home. Anything other than that size will either not function properly or look strange on your home. Not all New England gutter services understand this. At Kidd-Luukko Corporation, we understand the need for functional and aesthetically pleasing gutters; you don’t have to compromise!
Make Sure it’s Clog-Free or Easy to Clean
Cleaning gutters is not an easy task. In fact, it’s something that most people probably should not do unless they are properly trained. If you have any doubts about your ability to clean your gutters properly, consider hiring a pro.
Get the Right Contractor
As important as find the right gutter system is finding the right contractor for your new gutter installation. Look for a contractor who demonstrates expertise in roofing and gutter installation, has plenty of testimonials to showcase their great work and can present a portfolio of projects.
Get the Right Material
Gutters come in several different materials, each with their own benefits. The most popular gutter material is aluminum because it’s lightweight, inexpensive and rust-proof. Other more durable options are galvanized steel and copper, with copper lasting for much longer than other options.
