Seven Reasons to Upgrade Your Gutters

Rain gutters serve an important part in protecting your home from water damage by diverting water away from your home.  Beware of gutters that don’t function as they should or suffer the following ramifications.

1. Interior Flooding: Without properly working gutters on your home, water is not diverted away which can cause basement flooding.

2. Rotting Fascia: Fascia provides the finished look to a home’s trim. It covers rafter ends and creates a surface along the edge of the roof. It protects the house from severe weather by creating a barrier against precipitation. Fascia boards also prevent rodents from getting into your home’s walls because it covers gaps between the wall & the roof.  If clogged gutters overfill, they can cause excess water to hit wooden fascia.  This can cause it to start breaking down in a matter of hours.  Replacing fascia on your entire home can be a costly & time consuming process.leafguard

3. Bowing Driveways: Gutters that work improperly can cause large puddles of water to break concrete down from the surface.  This can result in cracking and bowing in your driveway.

4. Landscape Erosion: Whether you hire a professional or do it yourself, landscaping is an investment.  Lack of or clogged gutters can send water rushing towards your landscaping which and can knock over plants & shrubs.  Water can also cause soil erosion and dips in your yard.5. Pest Control: Here in the Midwest, mosquitoes are plentiful in the summer months.  Sitting water in gutters makes for the perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes, making it difficult for you to enjoy the outdoors.

6. Stay Dry When Entering Your Home:  Gutters deter water from rushing off the roof over the entrances to your home and porch.  Having gutters eliminates this at your home’s entry.  Not having them leaves all that enter your home in a rainstorm to be sopping wet.

"Exceptional. I had a company install a new covered gutter over my garage back in 2008. The cover was too high, so the water never reached the gutter and it just pooled. I was unaware until the side of the garage started rotting. I had that repaired and had the cover removed from the gutter. Well I decided that it’s not safe for me to climb ladders anymore so I called Lindus to install  LeafGuard®. They replaced more of the rotten wood underneath the old gutter, sealed up the area and installed the gutter at no extra charge. I had Lindus install LeafGuard® on the rest of our house 30 years ago. They still work great."

"In 2012, I had work done by Lindus Construction and they did an excellent job with installing a gutter system on my house. I called them again and Brandon, sales rep., come out and did the measuring and estimate for new gutters on my new garage. Excellent sales rep. Stayed in contact at all time. Lindus put them on a couple weeks later and again did an excellent job. I highly recommend them. Friendly staff and workers. Yes, you pay a little more but well worth it."

"Just want to tell you our LeafGuard® gutters are still holding strong.  No problems for five years.  I've been sweeping, vacuuming to clean up seed pods and helicopters, but none in the gutters.  True mess in spring, leaves in fall, rain, snow, wind, or hail.  Runs clean without fail.  Nothing gets in, not even the squirrel's tail."
