Gutter Services in Baker City, Oregon
Gutters aren’t given much thought until it rains, or the winter snow begins to melt. Whether it’s watching water gush over the eaves of your home pounding the soil below or witnessing the buildup of ice dams on your roof that weigh down your gutters, that’s when many homeowners realize the importance gutters play in maintaining and protecting their home.
The Importance of Gutters
Gutters act as a drainage system from your home’s roofline and serve several important purposes for your Baker City home or structure. They are responsible for directing melted snow and rainwater safely away from your home’s foundation, protecting your roof and foundation and preventing mold, mildew and other water damage to your home. Gutters are essential for homes where water naturally drains towards their foundation such as those with a short roof overhang, situated at the bottom of a slope or surrounded by clay-rich soil.
There are various types of gutters including aluminum, steel, vinyl and copper, but aluminum is the most used gutter type because of its low price point and is lightweight, rust-resistant, weatherproof and easy to paint. Aluminum can sometimes dent easier than more expensive gutter materials but is reliable and proven to last. Our expert gutter installation team at Specialty Group installs 5” continuous aluminum gutters in a variety of colors perfect for your Baker City home.
Maintaining Your Gutters Is Key
Installing a quality gutter system is an important step in protecting your home from water damage, but professional maintenance is the key to long-term success. During the year, wind, rain and dry weather can cause leaves, twigs and other debris to fall into your gutters, clogging them and preventing water from flowing through them freely. Snowy Oregon winters can also be especially hard on your rain gutters. Snow and ice can build up and create ice dams that can weigh heavily on gutters, clogging them.
Attempting to unclog your gutters yourself, especially in the winter, can be unsafe and often causes damage to your gutters and your roof. That’s why we offer expert gutter cleaning and maintenance services for our Baker City community. We take care of the stress of keeping your gutters free of debris and flowing freely.
