Roofing and Gutters: A Water Management System | Chalfont, PA
As spring is here and the rains that come with it, now is the best time to overhaul your home’s water management system. A Chalfont, PA, homeowner recently asked us to do just that by installing a new roof and seamless gutters.
With all of our roofing projects, we install a CertainTeed® Integrity Roof System™. As manufacturer certified installers (CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMasters™), we ensure that CertainTeed’s top quality products are installed correctly—with the added benefit of additional warranties.
An essential element of a CertainTeed Integrity Roof System is Landmark™ architectural shingles. Capable of withstanding winds up to 130 mph, these shingles are the gold standard of asphalt shingles. Landmark shingles also come with a 10-year StreakFighter® algae-resistance warranty which helps protect against ugly algae stains.
Not only are Landmark shingles highly durable and cost efficient, but they’re also aesthetically pleasing. We used Charcoal Black coloring to provide a nice contrast to the white siding of the home, while also matching the home’s shutters.
Seamless gutters are in every way preferable to traditional gutters. Not only will they provide a sleek roof-line, but they’re also much more durable and long-lasting than traditional gutters. Without the need of chalking and clamps, they’re also much less likely to leak–ensuring a much longer life cycle.
Installing seamless gutters is no easy task. We get a lot of calls for seamless gutter installations for a reason: Each section of gutter needs to be cut-to-length. This requires specialized machinery. And with all gutters, you’ll need to properly pitch them so the water will actually flow down the downspouts and not just stagnate.
While pitching the gutters are paramount to a successful water management system, you’ll also need to properly install downspout extensions of at least 4 to 6 feet to safely flow the water away from the house. Otherwise, all the water will simply flow back into the home’s foundation—potentially causing severe long-term damage.
By hiring us for your seamless gutter project, you’ll ensure to get the most out of your new seamless gutters, while also protecting your home against long-term damage.
