Home Gutters Prevent Water Leakages that can Damage A Home and Landscape

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 07, 2014

Home gutters refer to the long, narrow tubes which reroutes rainfall on the roof keeping it from directly falling down your home and to the ground like a waterfall. The gutters divert the water away from the siding and foundation of your home to prevent water leaks that can damage the structure and the surrounding landscape.

A saturated ground around your foundation can cause serious problems. But these problems can be prevented with the use of home gutters in Worcester, MA.

Home gutters keep houses safer, dryer and more livable as they prevent moisture and humidity from seeping back through your foundation and beneath the siding. Having a gutter system can help make sure that no water will enter your home to ruin your basement or crawlspace. Gutters help maintain the soil moisture around your home so as not to cause problems with your foundation.

Excessive splashing and pooling of water due to the absence of home gutters can also result to discoloration and peeling of your home’s exterior paint.

Gutters must be installed properly by a professional for the best results. Contact Custom Installation Company, Inc.

Copper Gutters for Cost and Convenience - Boston, Worcester, MA

Joseph Coupal - Friday, August 01, 2014

Considering how copper is cost-effective as a gutter system and roofing material, copper gutters in Boston, MA have gained popularity in becoming an effective alternative. See how these gutters can help your home.

All gutters, including Copper gutters must be cleared from debris. However, they are virtually free of maintenance because there is nothing else that needs to be done. In fact, copper is a natural fungicide, so clogs from algae and moss growth that can occur in traditional gutters do not occur in copper gutters. Nor do copper gutters sag or fall off of your home when installed properly and secured tightly.

When exposed to the elements, most materials often do not have a lifespan that will last for the lifetime of your home. But this is not true with copper. Additionally, they add value to your home and enhance the exterior which you will not get with other materials. Copper gutters in Boston, MA are durable enough to withstand all kinds of weather.

The initial cost of choosing copper gutters might be more expensive than aluminum. But think about the money you can save with this great investment. Their durable quality means that you are not going to spend additional money doing repairs of making replacements like you do with traditional guttters. Plus, the convenience you get from copper gutters is also paired with elegance they add to the esthetic value of the exterior of your home while you benefit from their main use.

Copper Gutters - Are They Worth It?

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 07, 2011

There is no question that every home needs a gutter system. So paying for gutters is absolutely worth it. But what about copper gutters? They are more expensive, and they are very beautiful, but beyond that, are they actually worth the money?

Low cost gutters, even though they appear to serve the purpose in the short term, are easily damaged and have to be replaced or repaired periodically. Copper rain gutters may be the answer.

Copper has better tensile strength compared to other gutter material. The strength increases as the copper content of the gutters increases. There are plenty of copper roofs that have been intact for centuries. Copper gutters add great value to the aesthetic looks of a house as well.

Aluminum gutters are an alternative to copper. They are not as strong however, and they can be damaged during cleaning. When considering which material gutter to install, long time durability is important.

Copper gutters will oxidize and turn green, and if this is a look you don’t like, they can be treated. While aluminum can be painted to blend with the building architecture, the coating peels off easily and requires a new coat frequently.

A copper gutter is especially right for those homeowners who want to maintain the architectural beauty. Unlike the need to hide aluminum gutters, a copper gutter can actually enhance the beauty of your home. A home is valued not only in terms of its architecture and structure, but also by the accessories that it has. Copper gutters can give you better valuation in the long run in terms of utility and aesthetics.

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 25, 2011

With the difficult conditions and volatility of the real estate market, investing in home improvement projects to keep your home in its best shape will give you the upper hand in a housing market where competition is fierce. For the home seller, there are a couple of tasks that you can take care of to significantly add value to your home.

Focus on the curb appeal
The front of your home is the first thing that can be seen from street. It is important to put effort into updating this part of your home. Assess your property from the street. One great improvement option is the installation of copper gutters.  For your home, only the best will do.  Copper gutters are a popular choice for new and remodeled homes, and they are growing in demand because they look beautiful and they are unique and durable.   But most of all they are also very low maintenance.

Improve your home's energy efficiency

Those home improvement tasks that are focused on improving the energy efficiency of your home will turn in significant gains with reduced energy consumption and lower energy bills. For instance, you can reduce your energy loss and raise the level of comfort in your home by improving the insulation quality of your home.

By improving your home’s insulation, you can also extend the life of your home itself, reducing repair and maintenance costs. To improve home energy efficiency the “thermal envelope” must be improved. This is the barrier to winter heat loss and summer heat gain, which protects and separates the indoor living space from the outdoor climate.  Insulation is the heart of the thermal envelope, so improving insulation is the first step.
