With no gutters on this home, the sandy soil surrounding the foundation was beginning to wash away. Appropriate soil levels are very detrimental to a home, and if erosion is left unattended, it can cause rotting of the foundation and leaks in the basement. These are major and expensive damages, so avoiding them is critical to a homeowner’s time and budget.
Proper water management is not just about the gutters, but the type of guard you protect them with.
In this project, we installed 5″ seamless gutters. The process required us to align, flash and seal with 50-year sealant. Then, we secured the gutters with hidden hangers: (1) 2×3 second-story downspout in Clay with an extension to the first-story using (5) A elbows.
With Michigan’s drastic seasonal climate changes, plastic and vinyl gutter protection runs the risk of cracking. And because this home was surrounded by pine needles and other small tree debris, our custom-fit Klean Gutter Leaf Guard was the best choice for gutter protection. Add to that our lifetime transferable warranty, and these homeowners got 100% lifetime guaranteed maintenance-free, clog-free protection!
