While watching a few videos and attempting a DIY gutter installation may be tempting, you may want to hold off and leave this important job to the professionals. Gutters may not look like much, but they are important in keeping your home damage free. If gutters do not work properly, your roof, siding, and foundation may suffer, leading to costly damages. Hiring professionals can save you time and money in the long run.
Professionals do gutter installations for a living, meaning they have years of training under their belts, know which materials to buy, and will complete the job on time. They know how to line the gutters up correctly with your roof, which will prevent damage and rot. Hanging them up correctly the first time will also save you time and money on potential repairs. If gutters are not hung correctly, they could sag or leak, leading to extra expenses.
Gutter installation requires spending time on a ladder and handling power tools. Ladders can be risky and have a fall risk, and power tools can be equally dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing. Gutter installation professionals take safety seriously and have enough experience to prevent injuries from happening.
If you try a DIY gutter installation, you’ll have to purchase stock gutters from your local hardware store. However, if you use a professional, they can customize your gutters for a seamless fit, minimizing leaks. Lastly, professionals know where to place your downspouts, so water successfully flows away from your home. Give us a call at Aspire Roofing and Gutters for help with your gutter installation.
