3 Reasons Why It’s Best to Have Professionals Handle Your Gutter Installation

These days, homeowners are always looking for new DIY projects that help them save money while improving their homes. In many cases, these undertakings are exciting and seem like no-brainers; however, when it comes to something like gutter installation, is it better to take things up yourself, or let a team of professionals handle the task? Here are three reasons why the latter is usually the best option, as gutters are simply too important to your home to risk not having them installed correctly!

1. They’ll Install the Correct Type of Gutters

Gutters are not one-size-fits-all, and there are many different types and sizes for varying needs. A team of professionals knows exactly which systems work for which homes and can ensure they’re properly measured and fitted for all roof designs. It’s not just about the gutters themselves, though. You’ll need to account for the roof pitch and slope, so you can ensure that the gutters properly redirect water flow. Finally, a downspout also needs to be installed, as it’s crucial in directing water away from the home’s foundation. With so many different parts working in unison, it’s quite easy to forget something or incorrectly install a portion of your system. Leaving it in the hands of a team of professionals ensures that the correct type of gutters is fitted in the proper manner.

2. You Won’t Be at Risk of Injury

To install gutters, you must have access to the roof of your home. This means you’ll need access to a ladder, and you’ll be climbing up and down that ladder fairly regularly. Needless to say, this alone carries an inherent risk of injury—not to mention, once you’re up on the roof things become even less safe. Gutter installation can also result in expensive damage to your home if a mistake is made or you’re unsure about what you’re doing. This might end up tacking on to the total cost of your DIY project that was initially supposed to save you money!

3. You Know Who to Call If There’s a Problem

Gutters have an average lifespan of around 15 to 20 or so years, and while this might seem like quite a while, factors such as climate, weather patterns, wildlife, and improper maintenance can cause even the best gutter system to fail early. In any case, it comes in handy to know who installed your gutters—that way, as soon as a problem arises or there’s a need for regular maintenance, you know exactly who to call. While it might seem cheaper to shoulder the burden yourself, the peace of mind that comes with knowing your installation team is priceless!
