In addition to their beauty, one of the biggest reasons homeowners opt to have a LeafGuard® Gutter System installed on their home is because of the peace of mind they offer. Awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal, and accompanied with warranties for clogging and the paint finish, there’s no worry of having to maintain them after installation. When Suzanne reached out to us earlier this year, it was because she wanted to get an estimate for gutter installation on her backyard shed. We appreciated the shed’s contemporary brown and white color scheme, charming windows, and alluring light fixtures. In order for the rain gutter replacement to add to the shed’s aesthetics, we suggested the used of LeafGuard® Gutters in Egg Shell with Terratone downspouts. We utilized a configuration that allowed a rain barrel to be installed for plant watering.
Problems Our Seamless Gutter Installation Helped Solve
The absence of seamless gutters causes rainwater to quickly gush from the roof towards landscaping, damaging nearby plants. In addition, uncontrolled rainwater can lead to soil erosion and uneven ground.
Corrosion, Rot, & Mold
Uncontrolled rainwater will pool around the base of a shed and eventually penetrate the foundation, making it insecure. Even more concerning is that wooden sheds can begin to rot if they repeatedly come in contact with heavy, uncontrolled rain. If water is allowed to repeatedly splash against a shed, it’s only a matter of time before mold and mildew begin to grow. All of which area reasons that make installing gutters necessary.
Indoor Water Damage
Without properly functioning rain gutters and downspouts, there’s a high probability that water will infiltrate a shed’s interior. This leads to staining, damaged belongings, and the shed’s structural integrity being compromised.
Gutter Services Homeowners Can Trust
Reflecting on her project, Suzanne had this to say, “The entire process was very professional from estimate, scheduling, onsite installation and final billing. We have worked with MANY contractors and construction companies over the years and not all have gone so smooth. I would highly recommend Lindus for your next gutter installation. Thank you, Lindus!!”
