4 Steps You Should Take to Prevent Gutter Damage

Like most exterior home components, your gutter system will sustain some amount of damage from harsh weather conditions, compromising its draining performance. Fortunately, any problems resulting from these are easy enough to prevent. Here’s how.

1. Clean your gutters regularly. You’ve probably dealt with blockages in your gutter system at some point. These occur when leaves, pine needles and other loose debris accumulates inside the system, causing rainwater to back up and overflow. Because water splashes against your home’s exterior and seeps within the eaves, significant water damage becomes more likely. Here’s the simplest preventive measure against a gutter clog: regular cleaning. Cutting back any overhanging branches will also help.

2. Consider gutter guards. As their name implies, gutter guards protect the system from leaves and debris buildup that result in congestion. They make this possible by allowing only rainwater into the system – everything else is shed off or filtered out. 

3. Keep the gutters sturdy. You can do this by making sure the brackets attaching the gutters along the roofline remain intact. This way, the occasional hailstorm won’t loosen them or knock the gutters askew. If you spot any damage to your brackets, have them replaced immediately. 

4. Choose a durable gutter material. An easy way to head off gutter damage? Just invest in a system that’s almost impervious to extreme weather in the first place.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
