To achieve comprehensive exterior property protection, for homes and commercial properties, every building system needs to be operating perfectly. Of the range of exterior components designed to keep your property safe from damage, particularly from the rain, the guttering system is one of the most important.
A well-designed guttering system, constructed from high-quality materials, will act as one of your property’s first lines of defense against water damage; keeping the interior and exterior of your home or workplace safe from the serious harm that rainwater can cause. If your guttering system isn’t doing its job properly, or you want a new guttering system that’s more capable of protecting your property in the long term, then it’s essential to act quickly.
At Apex Exteriors, we specialize in exterior property care, maintenance and upgrades. Our services range from siding installation to roof maintenance and replacement, and includes a full service for guttering repair, replacement and installation. If you’re concerned about the quality of your guttering, the design of the system, or existing damage to the gutter materials, then we’re always on hand to help you find the best and most affordable solution in the Chicagoland area.
The Vital Role of the Gutters
Gutter systems may seem like a small component in the great scheme of exterior property protection, but without a capable guttering system, your property could be exposed to some serious moisture-related issues. If you don’t have reliable gutters, the structural integrity of your property is put at risk, and both the exterior and interior of the building could be damaged.
The primary role of a guttering system is to carry rainwater away from your home or commercial building – removing the threat of rainwater from the immediate area around your property. A well-designed guttering system will be positioned to collect the water runoff from the roof of the property. Once the rainwater is safely in the guttering system, it’ll be directed towards the downspouts, which will carry the water to the drainage system to be properly disposed of.
This simple process can mean all the difference between a property that’s dry and safe from water damage, and a property that’s subjected to the full threat of excess water. The team at Apex Exteriors are highly knowledgeable in all areas of guttering system design and installation, so if you’ve noticed problems with your guttering system that’s preventing it from carrying out its primary role in your property’s protection, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
What Can Go Wrong with Gutters
Just like any exterior system, gutters need regular maintenance to stay effective, and require repair and occasional replacement to ensure that your property remains safe from water damage. Over time, there are many things that can go wrong with guttering systems that may require professional intervention to prevent more serious issues from occurring, these include:
-The gutters or downspouts becoming clogged with leaves or other debris that prevent water being drained properly.
-Downspouts not being properly aligned to allow for adequate drainage away from the immediate property area.
-Ice causing the guttering to become backed up and preventing drainage.
-Sagging of the gutters that cause the guttering to slowly begin pulling away from the structure of the property.
-Poor pitching of gutters that prevents the water draining adequately into the downspouts.
-Holes appearing in the guttering that cause leaks.
-Leaks in the joints causing damp in the interior of a property.
-Inadequate design of the guttering which can lead to poor drainage or standing water in some areas.
No matter the problem that you’re facing with your guttering system in Chicago, IL, Apex Exteriors can help you to find a fast solution that will secure your home or commercial building now and for many years to come.
Avoid Gutter Problems in Chicagoland with Apex Exteriors
The problems that can occur with guttering systems can lead to a range of moisture-related issues that can cause damage to your home or commercial property. Depending on the exact problem with your gutters, the water damage could be minor or severe, but as always with issues relating to excess water, the problems need to be addressed quickly. Here are some problems that can be the result of a poorly-designed, damaged, or inadequate guttering system:
-A clog in the system may cause the rainwater to overflow and saturate the foundations of your building. This can cause serious problems with the structural integrity of your property.
-Leaks in the guttering system can lead to isolated damp, where the excess water penetrates the exterior walls of your property and causes damp patches to appear on the interior. This could eventually lead to mold appearing on the surface of the walls.
-Poor downspout design, which doesn’t direct rainwater to the drainage system, can cause exterior surfaces, like driveways and paths, to be seriously damaged.
-Without gutters, or gutters in good condition, siding can easily become damaged or stained. Depending on the type of siding installed, it may also begin to rot.
-Soil erosion may be the result of water gathering around the immediate area of a property, instead of being carried away. The erosion of soil on your property can lead to further foundation problems.
-Blocked downspouts can lead to overflowing, which can cause major flooding in properties with basements.
