Although Arizona isn’t known for getting a lot of rain each year, the old adage “when it rains, it pours” is especially true. The monsoon season brings rainfall that can lead to a number of problems that can be catastrophic, including damage to your roof. A torrential downpour stresses the structure of your roof, but rain gutters add another layer of protection to your house. Get rain gutters installed and be prepared for what lies ahead.
How Rain Gutters Function
When it rains, the water on your roof doesn’t have a specific path to follow. It can seep into the walls of your home and collect around the foundation of the house which causes damage, especially when the soil is extremely saturated. Rain gutters are installed on the eaves of your home, generally with just a slight slope that encourages the rain water to flow to a downspout and away from your house.
Installation of Rain Gutters
Rain gutters are available in a number of different materials and colors that will not detract from the style and personality of your home’s exterior. We install high quality aluminum or copper gutters, which ensures that your system will last a long time. Because we only use hidden hangers and galvanized screws, your rain gutter system is durable during any type of weather condition. Your rain gutters are custom fit to your home for a professional look.
Maintenance for Your Gutters
Once you have rain gutters installed on your home, inspect and clean them monthly to make sure they don’t get filled with debris. When it does rain, inspect the water flow of your gutters. Finding places where the gutters aren’t efficient lets you fix small problems quickly before they become big issues.
Prepare for the Monsoon Season
You will want to get rain gutters installed before the monsoon season hits, but that is just one of the preparations you should make to your home and roof. The sand storms, or haboobs, are just as hard on your roof as the rain and water. If you aren’t sure of what to look for, one of our professional roofers can inspect your home to give you the peace of mind that your most important investment is ready to face the rain and winds that hit Arizona in the summer months.
