What Style House Gutters Are Most Effective and Efficient?

If you’re a homeowner, you know that you have to have house gutters. They protect your home from potential damage. If water isn’t directed down and away from your house’s structure, you could face flooding and other issues. But do you know what style of gutter is the most effective and efficient? Let’s take a look at some of your best options.

Vinyl

Vinyl gutters are very popular for many reasons. They are flexible, sturdy, easy to install, and lightweight. They’re also affordable and come in a variety of colors, so they fit most budgets and home styles. They’re ideal for our warmer climate because it doesn’t get cold enough to risk the vinyl cracking.

Aluminum

Aluminum gutters are another great option. Like vinyl, aluminum is lightweight and won’t rust. You can paint them to match your house or trim, and they are relatively easy to install. The only drawback is that aluminum dents and bends easily.

Cast Iron

One of the biggest benefits of cast iron is its eco-impact. It takes less energy to produce them, they are recyclable, and generally require very little repair or maintenance. Cast iron is also a very quiet option due to the acoustic properties and is a great choice for a home.

Copper

Copper has a higher price tag than other gutter options, but it’s a great choice for homeowners who want to maintain an elegant look. It’s another eco-friendly choice, as well as being low-maintenance and highly durable.

There are many great options when it comes to gutters for your home. If you’re still in doubt about the right choice, we can help. Contact the roofing experts at Premiere Roofing for help choosing the most effective and efficient gutters for your home and budget.

4 Ways Summer Weather Can Cause Roof Damage

Do you have roof damage? You might not even know if you do, or how it happened. It’s quite common for the summer weather to cause roof damage. Here are four of the most common ways it happens.

#1: Humidity

We all know the south is hot and humid in the summer. That humidity can pack a punch when it comes to your roof decking, especially if there is a lot of rain. If the moisture reaches the material under your roof tiles, it can rot and deteriorate.

#2: Hail

Hail is so vicious when it comes to your roof. Even small hailstones can damage tiles and flashing. It can tear asphalt shingles, dent and break gutters and downspouts, crack siding, and loosen the flashing around your vents and ducts.

#3: Wind

Normal wind speeds don’t usually damage roofs, but extreme wind and high gusts certainly can. When we get a summer storm that blows through, the winds that come with it can lift the tiles on your roof. It can also blow debris around that is large and heavy enough to cause damage.

#4: Heavy Rain

In South Carolina, we’re no stranger to rain. When the hurricanes and tropical storms come through, it can go from normal to catastrophic pretty quickly. The biggest issue with this type of intense water is roof leaks.

When there’s summer weather, there’s the chance for damage to your roof. Instead of hoping for the best, contact the pros at Premiere Roofing for a roof inspection and free estimate.
