Gutter Installation and Repair Services

gutter installationMost people only think about their gutters when they need help - including cleaning, leak repair, or if they are detaching themselves from their house. At B & G Enterprise we realize that gutters perform a very important service: they prevent rainwater from damaging your foundation.

Here are some specific problems that gutter repair or replacement can prevent:

Leakage and Flooding: Experts agree that rainwater runoff from your roof must be channeled a minimum of four feet from your home’s foundation to prevent leaks and flooding in your house. Your concrete foundation was NOT designed to keep gallons of water away for years. A gutter repair or installation will take care of this for you!

Foundation Damage: The short-term consequences of excessive water saturating the soil around your home are bad enough, but the long-term consequences are much more severe. The accumulation of excessive water can cause structural damage to your home’s foundation, possibly making your home unsafe and costing thousands of dollars to repair.  gutter repair or installation will be much cheaper!

Siding Damage: Allowing rainwater to stream down the side of your home can cause serious damage depending on the kind of siding you have. It can cause wood to bulge, warp or rot; paint to prematurely peel and discolor; and brick, stone, and concrete to chip and crack.

Driveway Damage: Water is more powerful than concrete. Runoff water from your roof can erode the ground underneath concrete and asphalt driveways and walkways, causing them to sag, bulge, crack, and develop potholes. 

Formation of Mold: Long before any noticeable cracks form in your walls, tiny cracks will form. These small, porous, and invisible cracks will let in small amounts of water. Every time it rains, this will cause moisture to accumulate inside your walls and vents. This dark and damp environment is ideal for mold to start growing inside your home.

For all of these reasons, we strongly recommend you have your gutter system thoroughly inspected to determine whether you need gutter repair work. With our 35 point inspection we can determine if you need repair or replacement(i.e. if they have the correct slope for proper water drainage, if their seams, elbow joints, and all other joints are properly fastened together and are properly caulked and sealed, and if any cracks, holes, or other damage is present).
