Common gutter repairs

 

Common_gutter_repairs

You gutters are an important part of your home but if ignored and left without proper maintenance for too long they can get into bad shape. Warning signs are missed and then problems grow in scope and scale. One day you look up and your gutter is sagging and no longer attached to your home. Despite the age old belief that duct tape can fix anything sometimes a more serious approach is needed.

Gutters can also wear out with age and parts will need to be replaced. If you keep a good eye on them then you can plan and follow wear.

Your gutters are an important part of your home. They move water away from your walls and foundation keeping them dry. If your gutters are damaged or falling apart they are no longer doing their job and your home probably has some drainage problems. Fixing your gutters now and creating a regular maintenance schedule in the future will keep your gutters moving water away from your home.

Here are some of the most common types of gutter repairs:

It is important to keep a close eye on your gutters so you can detect the earliest signs of a problem and minimize the damage to your home.

You may be able to repair some problems with your gutters and get more life out of them, but some signs of trouble could indicate that it’s time for all new gutters.

An Introduction to EPDM Gutter Membrane Systems

EPDM_Gutter

Even the best gutter systems can’t protect your home from water completely. When a heavy thunderstorm rolls through, your gutters won’t be able to funnel the deluge of water away from your home quickly enough. The water will rise right up to the edge of the gutter, either splashing over the side a bit or pushing up against the edge of the roof. The water will seep between the gutter and the fascia, contributing to rot in the fascia, the eaves, the trim, and the shingles at the edge of the roof.

If your gutters become clogged with debris, the problem is exacerbated. A dam of leaves and pine needles will send pools of water over your roof and submerge your fascia. The rotting will be accelerated, leading to damage to your roof, walls and more.

Installing a seamless gutter system can help minimize clogs, as can cleaning your gutters regularly. However, you’ll need extra protection for your fascia and roof.

The EPDM rubber membrane system is a protective layer for your roof, which wraps all the way around the edges, even under the gutters. It provides a waterproof layer that protects your home from rot, pest damage and more.

Had a job in a sketchy part of town, for a dirty and difficult clean. The people at North Shore were very helpful, the technician did a great job, and we are very happy with the way it all turned out. Everything was handled professionally and skillfully. I'm thrilled with the result. Will happily recommend them to anyone

They did a great job for the downpipes replacement, it looks awesome and professional. There were a small issues for one of the downpipes, they came back the next day and changed a new one for me after I called them. The price is reasonable and the material is a great quality, the installers are their own guys, not subcontract. I am happy about my experience.

North Shore has taken care of a great deal of our maintenance and they always do a great job. Service is fantastic and there have never been any issues with them returning if we needed a touch up after a service. Pricing is always fair and scheduling always on point.

I have been using this service on behalf of our townhouse complex in Burnaby for the past 3 years. Roof cleaning, gutter repair, and other roofline repairs and maintenance have all been done promptly, quickly and carefully. It was worth it to search for this company and this result, as we have been treated poorly by other more local companies. Prices are reasonable despite the extra travel they do to get here. Invoices and responses to requests are always reliable.

I have switched to North Shore Home Services because of the over the top customer service. Everyone from the men who came to do the repairs to the man in charge of customer service was as professional and understanding as is possible. Best of all, they fixed the leak!! I will recommend these people and call them whenever is necessary.
