You may not realize it but gutters are a very important part of any home or small business. They do far more than prevent sheets of water from drenching you when you enter or exit a structure. What gutters actually do is protect the foundation of your largest investment from being ruined.
Gutters collect and move water away from the foundation of a building. Otherwise, every time it rained the foundation would be attacked by water which slowly erodes soils beneath the concrete base, creating cracks, fissures and water damage. Even a small crack in the foundation of a structure can be a real concern. The foundation holds up every part of your home so a weak point, however small, can quickly grow as there is so much pressure pushing down on it.
We can provide you with many styles and color options for your new gutter system installation or replacement.

You may be wondering “when do I know when my gutters need repairs?” Well, besides the obvious sight of a gutter barely hanging onto the edge of your roof there are a number of different things to look for. First, the next time it rains look at the seams and at the corners of your gutters to see if any water is leaking from them. The seams are often the first areas to show signs of decay. When filled with water, the seams hold the stress of keeping the gutter sections together. Second, look to see that there is no space between the edge of the roof and the gutters. Any space which allows water to pour through means that the gutters are not doing what they are made for which can lead to foundation and property damage. You may also notice that the gutters are sagging in the middle or maybe filled with leaves. These are all signs that your gutters may need to be repaired.
If you find that water is flowing over the sides of the gutters when it rains then we can fix that for you too! Most of the time it is due to a blockage somewhere down the line which stops the water from draining efficiently. Rio Blanco Roofing & Restoration can install gutter protectors which stop debris like leaves and dirt from entering so you will never have to have your gutters cleaned again!
Of course, you don’t necessarily have to wait till it rains. Simply give Rio Blanco Roofing & Restoration a call and we will be more than happy to perform a full inspection.
