Rain is such a common occurrence, that most people don't pay it any mind. Truth be told, rain, and water in general, is one of the most destructive elements to impact your home and property. Water running over your roof and down your home can cause damage to your siding, exterior doors and windows, landscaping, and even your foundation. To combat this, every home needs rain gutters and downspouts.
Gutters and downspouts collect the water off of your roof and the downspout safely directs that water away from your home, avoiding erosion and damage. Sometimes, just having gutters is enough, sometimes you need quality gutters that are professionally installed to prevent costly property damage. Luckily for homeowners, The Drying Co./ThermalTec is here to provide Toano homeowners with these gutter services.
If your gutters are clogged, you might as well not have gutters at all. Leaves, pine needles, roof grit, and all sorts of fodder can find their way into your rain gutters. This refuse will clog your downspout and stop the rain from properly draining away from your home. When your gutters are filled with water, that water can make its way back under your roofing or down your siding. This will cause wood rot and massive damage. During the winter, clogged gutters freeze. This ice will also creep under your roofing and cause damage. The weight of the ice could also make your gutters sag and fall off your home.
To prevent your gutters from clogging, regular cleaning and maintenance need to take place. Not only is this dirty work, but it's also dangerous. Even at one story height, you'll still need a ladder to reach your gutters. Falling from that height alone can be severely harmful, think about a home that has two or three stories. Why risk injury when Gutter Shutter's gutter guard system keeps your gutters clean without any maintenance. Never get on a ladder to clean your Toano gutters again with our covered gutters!
If you are doing your research on gutters, the term "seamless gutters" is going to start showing up over and over. What are seamless gutters? They are gutters that are made in a single piece during the installation instead of being multiple pieces assembled on site. Having your gutters made on the spot eliminates measuring errors, ensuring that your gutters always fit. By having your gutters be in one single piece, you increase the strength of your gutters and prevent leaks. Seamless gutters are by far the best choice for any Toano home. Why Install Seamless Gutters?

This home had traditional 5-inch metal gutters installed. The gutters often filled with leaves and pine needles, overflowed and pooled water in their garden and around the home. They wanted to check off cleaning their gutters from their chore list for good and protect their garden and foundation from puddling water. We installed the GutterShutter system. GutterShutter is a seamless metal gutter with a hood. The system is supported every 2 feet with a durable bracket that offers support to the front, back, and hood of the gutter meaning the homeowners don't have to worry about their gutters sagging or pulling away from the home.
