The gutter is one of the most important yet often overlooked components of a home. It might not do much for the property’s curb appeal, but it does protect the structure from water damage. The gutter is designed to prevent rainwater from collecting on the roof. It also stops water from falling too close to the building’s foundation, keeping the base of the house safe from soil erosion.

With a well-maintained gutter, your home can withstand the impact of heavy rainfall. Unfortunately, many homeowners forget about the condition of their gutters and are surprised to see the gutter break when they least expect it.

In this type of situation, it’s crucial that the gutters get fixed ASAP. Leaving the damage can cause a number of problems, including:

  • Leaks
  • Mold and mildew
  • Wood damage
  • Foundation damage
  • Ice dams

Depending on what’s causing the issue, we’ll apply one of the following methods to restore your gutters back to their original condition:

Gutter Cleaning And Sealing

Aside from rainwater, strong storms can drop tree branches and other debris on your roof. This debris can then roll down to the side and collect and create a blockage, damaging your gutter.

For this reason, you should have your gutters cleaned regularly. Our technicians use powerful specialized cleaning machines and effective methods to get rid of the filth that’s stuck in the gutter. We can also inspect the gutter system’s structure for leaks and seal them accordingly.

Gutter Repair And Replacement

If your gutter is exhibiting damage, contact us immediately so we can repair your gutter system ASAP. It is not ideal to continue using a neglected gutter because it will cause more problems in the future. Letting us take care of the task ensures that the gutter will be restored to its original state in no time.

When gutter repairs are not enough, we can offer a gutter system replacement. We will assess your broken gutter system to determine whether repairs or replacement are the better and more affordable option for you.

E-Z Micro Mesh™ Leaf Guard System

Fortunately, you can count on Cook Home Services to take care of everything. Our company is well-versed with the different yard drain products on the market, so we can easily install it for you.

Yard Drains Services

Many homeowners usually dismiss flooding and puddles of water in their yards as something harmless and normal, especially during wet and rainy seasons. However, this can’t be further from the truth. In fact, if a yard does not have a proper drainage system, it could cause a myriad of problems for the property owner, from compromising the health of plants to potential structural issues to the property.

If you’ve been noticing water puddles around your lawn or garden that don’t seem to be draining quick enough, you definitely need professional help in installing an efficient drainage system.

Benefits Of An Efficient Yard Drainage System

While it may be tempting to simply overlook the puddles in your yard, there’s really much more to gain in having an effective yard drainage system. Here are some benefits to having a yard drainage system installed.

  • Prevents your property’s foundations from being stressed. When the water falling into your yard gets absorbed instead of being drained away, it makes the soil around your property’s foundation heavier, wetter and denser. This kind of soil may not be something that your property’s foundation or basement is graded to withstand, and as such stress cracks and fractures can develop. This effect is doubled during the winter months when the wet soil freezes, causing even more stress to your property’s foundation.
  • Prevents water from seeping into your property’s crawlspace or basement. Just as an efficient yard drainage system prevents water from straining your property’s foundations, so too does it stop water from seeping into your basement or crawlspace. Water damage in these areas can not only cause structural weaknesses in your property’s structure but also cause mold and mildew development. Pests and insects may be attracted by the moisture also.
  • It keeps your yard looking neat and healthy. Nothing puts off a guest more than seeing a muddy and messy yard full of water puddles. The stagnant water in these puddles will also attract pests such as mosquitoes and other flying insects. By having an efficient yard drainage system, you avoid all of these while keeping your yard looking very aesthetically pleasing.

Gutter Replacement Services

Having a proper gutter system installed in your home is one of the most important things you can do to keep your home, your valuables – not to mention your loved ones – safe and dry.

If your gutters have been neglected or have fallen into disrepair for a long time, you are not just risking water damage to your property, but also a host of other serious problems, one of which is the drastic weakening of your building’s structure. Prevent these issues from becoming reality by having your gutters replaced by Cook Home Services.

Warning Signs That Your Gutter Needs To Be Replaced

Replacing your property’s gutter system can be expensive, which is one of the many reasons why many homeowners usually delay in doing so. However, there are some key warning signs that can help you determine whether you need a gutter replacement or not.

  • Flecks of paint and rust around your gutters. Unless your property is a very old one, there should not be any paint flaking or rust flecking on your gutters. Finding flakes of paint and rust around your property, especially around the gutters, means that water is sitting in your gutters for an extended period of time.
  • Mildew or mold around your property’s foundation. Gutters are there to catch rainwater from your roof and direct it elsewhere to drain. If your gutters are blocked or cracked, they end up pooling around your foundation and causing mildew formation. This could result in structural weaknesses in the home or building.
  • Gutter sag. When your gutters have begun to sag and pull away from your house, that’s the clearest sign that your gutter needs replacing. It basically means that your gutter has been full of stagnant water for so long that the weight of the water along with the resultant rust has weakened its structure.

Gutter Cleaning and Sealing

Your gutters are a vital component for maintaining the durability and health of your roof. However, there may come a time when the gutters will encounter problems of their own. Depending on the age of your gutters and the type of weather you experience, your gutters can eventually get clogged or leak.

Leaf Guards

Fallen leaves are not destructive by themselves. But, when it comes to debris on your gutters, they’re the most troublesome to deal with. Leaves fall by the hundreds and can easily clog your gutters in a matter of minutes. If the leaves are neglected, they can build up and cause gutter issues. Some of the most common gutter problems we see include:

  • Mold growth
  • Inefficient gutter drainage
  • Rodent and insect infestation

Of course, constantly removing leaves from your gutter is one solution. But, cleaning out the gutters is a time-consuming and dangerous chore, and if you aren’t careful, you can injure yourself or damage your roof. Fortunately, Cook Home Services can make things easier for you by installing a leaf guard system that can prevent leaves from clogging your gutters and keep the entire gutter system in perfect working order.
