Gutters wash your worries away.
C&L Ward is the area’s leader of gutters. A rain gutter is a narrow channel, or trough, forming the component of a roof system which collects and diverts rainwater shed by the roof. It is also known as an eavestrough, eaves channel, guttering or simply as a gutter.
The main purpose of a rain gutter is to protect a building’s foundation by channeling water away from its base. The gutter also helps to reduce erosion, prevents leaks in basements and crawlspaces, protects painted or stained surfaces by reducing exposure to water, and provides a means to collect rainwater for later use.
Water collected by a rain gutter is fed, usually via a downspout or “downpipe” (traditionally called a leader or conductor), from the roof edge to the base of the building where it is either discharged or collected. Water from rain gutters may be collected in a rain barrel or a cistern.A leaky gutter can cause major damage to your home if not repaired properly. The expert service technicians at C&L Ward can replace your leaky gutters to ensure water is being properly routed away from your home. Schedule your service visit today!
Protecting your Home
Clogged gutters can cause water leakage into the house as the water backs up. Clogged gutters can also lead to stagnant water build up which allows mosquitoes to breed and also allows grasses and weeds to grow in the gutter.
Gutters must be maintained regularly to remove leaves and other debris to keep them from clogging. Gutters that are filled with debris can overflow and soak the foundation, damage the roof structure, and exacerbate ice dams in cold climates.
Gutter Guards can keep the debris out. Check out our Leaf Shelter Gutter Protection solution.
