Built-In Roof Gutters - Call the Experts!
Homes that have built-in rain gutters remind their owners of the olden days. By keeping their gutter system hidden from your eyesight and built right into the side of the roof, they add to the wonderful look of classical and historical homes and buildings.
However, built-in gutters require regular maintenance. Our tendency is to think, "out of sight, out of mind”, but if anything, built-in gutters will need to be cleaned out of residue or else they will clog and cause potential leakage issues, even damaging the wood. Make sure that you have your built-in gutters checked at least once a year. If you live in a neighborhood where there is a lot of foliage from trees you may even need to inspect your gutters twice a year.
Our roofing contractors are skilled at replacing the waterproof membrane system that lines the interior of your built-in gutters. Our roofers will come in and remove the old, worn membrane and replace it with a new system designed to keep the water moving smoothly and protect the surrounding roof. Since we live in a coastal environment that receives a good amount of rainfall, typically we also make the size of the drains larger, to help increase the flow of run-off rain and melt water.
Trust us to make certain that your new built-in gutter membrane gets installed correctly, and that we're always thinking of your best interests.
