Charlotte Gutter Installation
Poor gutter installation can result in leaks or improper drainage that exposes your home’s foundation and exterior to water damage. At Vision Roofing, our gutter installation professionals will evaluate your home, the land it’s situated on, and the best drainage situation before installing your gutters to ensure they’re as effective as possible.
We then install gutters that collect water and funneled away from your home. Our craftsmen use commercial-grade construction equipment, including durable gutters and hooks that blend in with your home, enhancing its aesthetic.
After installation, we can also provide gutter guards that act as a protection system, keeping debris out of your gutters and ensuring that water is effectively directed away from your home. Since gutter guards keep your gutters free of debris, they also reduce the frequency at which you need to clean out your gutters, saving you time on maintenance.
Seamless Gutters and Gutter Guards
Seamless gutters are created as a single piece that’s fitted to your home. In most cases, seamless gutters are made at your property with professional equipment that rolls the material and forms it into a gutter that’s uniquely fitted to your home. Seamless gutters are installed immediately after they’re made, reducing the disruption to your schedule.
Gutter guards are pieces of material that attach to your gutters and prevent unwanted materials from getting inside and restricting water flow. Gutter guards help make your gutters more efficient while reducing your maintenance tasks, so you need to clean your gutters less frequently.
The most common material that builds up in gutters and is controlled by gutter guards includes leaves, sticks, and trash, all of which can stop water from flowing smoothly through your gutters and away from your house. It can even cause gutters to overflow, with water building up and potentially damaging your home. Without gutter guards, you need to regularly clean your gutters, removing any built-up materials to ensure your gutters function properly.
Vision Roofing installs gutter guards around residential properties, evaluating and reducing any gaps so the guards let in water, but not debris. With proper gutter guard installation, your gutters will function more effectively and you’ll have less maintenance and cleaning to do.

How Long Do Gutters Last?
Once in place, gutters can last 20 or more years. The length of time they last depend on numerous factors.
The key to reaching that long-life depends on maintenance. This includes ensuring the gutters remain free-flowing. A properly installed gutter guard, selected specifically to the type of trees around your home, can significantly help prolong the life of your gutter. If there is damage from wind or storms, repairs are necessary to ensure the gutters remain attached and supported by the home. If sagging areas develop, they need to be repaired properly and quickly to promote the overall flow and function of the gutters.

When that happens your home’s exterior siding and foundation are at risk of damage.

Gutter replacement may also be necessary when they are unsightly or damaged due to rusting or poor care. It may be worth replacing the gutters even if they work if they are no longer adding aesthetic value to the home.
