Help Your Home With Gutter Services From G.L. Hunt

Homes all across Texas struggle with foundation problems and water damage. At G.L. Hunt, we’ve made it our goal to help homeowners tackle these problems with expert services that can prevent problems from the get-go.

One way we can help keep your property protected is by providing gutter installation services! Follow along with us as we explain how this can help your property stay safe from the hidden threats that rainy weather brings.

What Are Rain Gutters?

Rain gutters act as a mode of transportation for the water that falls onto your roof. Most homes will have a roof that’s made up of sloping elements, allowing gravity to do most of the work.

However, without gutters in place, the rain reaches the edge of the roof and falls straight down — directly in front of your home where your walls meet the soil.

Gutters are your way to control this. Part of the gutter system is installed directly under the edge of your roof to catch the falling water.

Once the water has been caught, it will move down your gutters and flow into the downspout.

At the end is an angled section of pipe, responsible for depositing the water away from your foundation’s direct edge.

How Does Gutter Drainage Protect Your Foundation?

Think of your rain gutter as a slide on a playground — just like a slide needs to jut out to ensure a safe ride, your gutter needs to curve away from the house to effectively redirect water. Without this curve, water won’t be safely guided away from your home’s foundation.

Imagine sliding straight down a slide at the playground — the impact would be immediate and potentially harmful. Similarly, when water flows straight down without a properly curved gutter, it can slowly cause damage to your home’s foundation over time.

Gutters are specifically designed to channel water away from the foundation, preventing issues like mold growth, foundation shifts and cracks in your property. Ensuring your gutters have the necessary curve is crucial for protecting your home from water damage and maintaining its structural integrity.

Prevent Foundation Damage With Gutter Installation

Prevent the powerful force of water from wearing away at your foundation or encouraging deterioration by installing gutters. Gutters come in several materials and finishes, allowing you to choose the most durable and aesthetically pleasing to your home’s style. They can be connected to other drainage solutions as well, ensuring the rain water that falls on your home is channeled away effectively.

If your gutters are a little worse for wear, it’s time to replace them with a new set. Our team will carefully remove the damaged or aging gutter system and install a brand new set, ensuring your home is ready to weather the worst Texas thunderstorms without damage to your home or foundation!

Maintain Proper Care Of Your Gutters

Following a professional gutter install, you should expect your system to work properly! However, as time goes on, it’s not uncommon for the quality of your gutters to decline. Luckily, our team is here to keep your home protected by installing LeafGuard!

It’s not just rain that slides into your gutters. It can also be twigs, leaves or anything else that falls onto your roof. This debris can accumulate in your pipes and form blockages. As a result, water can’t be efficiently expelled from your pipe.

It might overflow from the channel and fall directly against your foundation from overhead. When this happens over and over, homeowners may feel frustrated by how often they have to clear the clogs. LeafGuard systems can significantly lower the frequency that homeowners are required to clean debris out of their gutters. LeafGuard prevents more leaves and twigs from entering the top of the gutters, but allows water to flow smoothly. If you’re interested in LeafGuard installation, let our team know!

What Are Gutters For?

Gutters are designed to catch rainwater and move it away from your home. Positioning gutters directly under your roof’s edge will prevent large amounts of water from being deposited at the base of your house. Not only will this reduce the number of puddles you’ll have to step through when leaving your home, but it will also protect your foundation!

After the water is collected under your roof, it will move down the gutter system before flowing away from your home. With gutters in place, this process happens in a controlled manner that enhances your property’s drainage abilities.

How Often Do Homeowners Need To Clean Their Gutters?

When it comes to cleaning your gutters, there’s no set schedule you have to follow. However, there are helpful guidelines that can reduce your likelihood of clogs. Clogs in your rain gutter happen most commonly due to leaves or twigs that find their way into your gutter.

Homeowners should inspect their gutters as the seasons shift into the fall and spring. These seasons are active times for landscape changes as your trees either shed their leaves or support new growth — both of which can result in debris falling into your gutters.

In addition to these seasonal markers, you may find that you need more frequent cleanings if you live in rainy climates — especially during Texas’ spring storms! If you notice that your gutters seem to be clogged, don’t let your drainage system overflow! Instead, take steps to ensure your gutters are cleaned and cleared to receive the full benefits of your investment.

What Is An Exterior Drain?

Exterior drains are a solution to excess water accumulation in yards. These systems are identifiable with grates in the ground that are open for water to fall into during rainy weather. After the water is caught, it will flow away from your property using pipes installed beneath your soil.

One benefit of these systems is that they’re efficient at removing water, carrying it away quicker than other drainage options.

What Is A French Drain?

A French drain is a reliable and efficient drainage option for many homeowners across Texas. Unlike traditional drains, which are marked with a visible grate, French drains are subtle. They consist of a perforated pipe that runs underground within a trench.

This pipe is covered with a material that allows water to flow through but prevents rocks or dirt from forcing their way into your pipe. This is especially important as your drainage pipe will be surrounded by gravel that helps move water into it.

How Do You Unclog An Exterior French Drain?

Unclogging an exterior French drain can present challenges as the pipes are located underground. However, a drain snake can physically remove built-up materials and help dislodge clogs.

For stubborn blockages, consider calling an experienced professional on our team for drain cleaning services. This can ensure your pipes are handled safely, protecting the health of your French drain and maintaining efficiency!
