Ask anyone to illustrate a house. You will most likely see a drawing composed of a roof, walls, a door, and some windows. Talk about renovation or remodeling. First thing in line are probably walls, or flooring, or a door, or windows replacement. Seldom does anyone think of the roof gutter. It may not be found in the basic house drawings, and yet it is an essential part of the house.
The roof gutter has only one purpose: to manage the rainwater that falls on the roof, and directs it to a desirable location. By keeping the rainwater away, the foundation of the house is protected and erosion is reduced. Leakages into the basement and crawlspaces are avoided, and paint finishes are preserved. Another bonus: it is easier to collect rainwater from the gutter system for a later use.
Without a roof gutter, rainwater will splash down the ground in all directions, and this will cause many problems and inconvenience. Rainwater splashing on your wooden deck invites termite infiltration. Termites love to hang around and multiply on moist wood.
Furthermore, constant accumulation of moisture can weaken the foundation of a house. Moisture can also seep in the walls every time it rains, so it can cause your walls to crack. Doors can also affected because it can misalign.
Rainwater that falls from the roof and lands in your head can be a big problem. Nobody likes this nasty experience.
A good gutter system in the house can minimize the cost of your home renovation. This is because, given the benefits of having a roof gutter, the structure is protected and may need little else to repair.
Gutters can be made from a wide selection of materials. It can be made of cast iron, galvanized steel, painted steel, copper, zinc, aluminum, concrete, wood, PVC or other plastics. Some roof specialists provide a system that filters the leaves and other debris that accumulate on the roof over time. This will make it easier for the water to pass through.
Gutters lead the water to the base of the house and away from it by means of a downspout. This is part of the gutter system.
So, yes, and definitely, there is a need of installing a gutter system on your roof.
Good help, 90 degrees on the ground, did a nice job. I would refer this company to anyone. One day they were short a man, had rain for 2 days, Luke was at my house helping out himself, very impressed, one great sales man. Very hard working crew, No regrets using Lyster Exteriors.
It is an awesome..
This team has gone above and beyond for my family–over and over again.
Lyster did our roof, attic ventilation, and insulation. They were ECELLENT! They showed up everyday early and worked until it was too dark to keep going. Somehow from when they went in our attic originally the attic cover got left open and when they blew in the new insulin, because of its location they did not see it was open until too late. They came in, closed the hatch, vacuumed every inch of the closet, even every little compartment of the hanging shoe organizer which holds various cleaning supplies in it’s 32 pockets.
The crews were very efficient, hard working, professional, and polite. The last day, they cleaned up…..soooooo much more than they needed to! They even raked the leaves left for over a year surrounding the house. I cannot say enough good about this company. We have them coming back to do more to the house. They weren’t the cheapest bid we got, by far this time, but they rocked the job last time and they will always be the place to get the bid now.
Lysters were friendly, professional and quickly repaired our leaky roof. I was very pleased how soon after I called that they could get the job done. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for an honest dependable exterior repair!
