New Gutters on Stucco House

If you are like most people, you probably pay very little attention to your home’s gutters. That is, until disaster strikes, and at that point it is likely too late to do anything about it. Rain can be a pleasant thing from time to time, but heavy rainfall can leave your home damaged and your wallet hurting. If your gutter system is less than capable, expect trouble to come ‘round the bend.

At L&J Gutters of Freeport, we know gutters. It is in our name, after all. We understand how important a quality gutter system is to your home and to your home maintenance budget. That is why we take such care to design and manufacture high-quality gutters to suit your home.

Advantages of Installing Seamless Gutters

Less Maintenance: Seamless gutters still have joints and fasteners, but only at the corners and the downspouts. Fewer seams means that opportunities for leaks are greatly minimized. This...

Half-Round Gutters Full of Leaves

Even in the midst of fair weather, many people are surprised to find that their gutters have been clogged and backed-up with debris that renders the system all but useless. With blocked gutters, rainwater has nowhere to go but over the sides where it can pool along your home’s exterior. While a few puddles of rain aren’t bad in and of themselves, if too much water accumulates it can cause damage to your foundation. Clogged gutters can also be a detriment to your home itself. For these reasons, it’s important to have your gutter system cleaned regularly.

In a Perfect World

Ideally, your home’s gutter system should be cleaned no less than twice a year. However, if your home has a history of gutter issues, it would be wise to have the system cleaned more often. All that matters is making sure that your gutters are free and clear of any debris so that they can continue to work properly and protect your home the way they were intended to. It is also a good idea to keep an eye out for any wildlife activity, as small animals like birds and squirrels have...

The Importance of Gutter Replacement

It’s important to assess just how much of your gutter system needs to be replaced. If you opt to replace the entire system without inspection, you could be paying far more than is necessary. Look for sections that are damaged or outdated. If you aren’t sure which parts need to be replaced, a contractor can offer valuable insight.

Materials

If you are considering replacing your gutters, it’s a good time to also reconsider the materials and...

L & J Gutters Quote

Choosing new gutters for your home can be a surprisingly difficult challenge. There are more choices on the market than ever before, and each has its advantages and drawbacks. Style and color must also be considered. One of the most popular options for new gutters is copper. Your home can benefit from copper in three distinct ways.

Longevity

Copper, in spite of its reputation, is has a surprisingly long lifetime. With proper maintenance, copper gutters can last for decades, which means you won’t have to replace your gutters as often as the guy down the street.

Low-Maintenance

Copper gutters require very little maintenance. They naturally resist sagging and denting, as well as the growth of fungi and certain types of algae. Regular cleaning should keep them working at optimal levels all year round.

Curb Appeal

It’s undeniable; copper isn’t lacking in curb appeal. It’s shine and color complement a wide range of colors and home designs, and are a relatively easy way to increase the aesthetic and...

Hurricane Bird's Eye View

With Hurricane Matthew building steam and threatening to hit Florida, we at L&J Gutters of Freeport want for all of our community members to be prepared and to stay safe. We specialize in gutter repair and installation, so we know that homes can be rebuilt. But you and your family can’t ever be replaced. So without further ado, here is what you need to know about Hurricane Matthew and how to stay safe.

About Matthew

Hurricane Matthew achieved Category 4 status while lingering over the Bahamas, but was downgraded to a Category 3 early this morning. While Florida has managed to escape a direct hit thus far, winds up to 120 miles per hour are still raging off the coast, and tropical storm conditions can still be impactful and quite dangerous.

Steps to Prepare

  • Have an evacuation plan and follow it when the time comes: If a hurricane is bad enough, the governor may issue an evacuation order (as Rick Scott did). You should have a game plan in place when this situation arises. Put together a bug-out bag that includes...

Gutters are an essential part of a home, yet many homeowners do not realize their importance and tend to neglect them, often causing extensive damage to their home. What many homeowners do not realize is that the purpose of gutters is to direct water away from the foundation of a home. In order to protect your foundation and the structural integrity of your home, your gutter system must be working properly.

The Dangers of Clogged Gutters

When it comes to gutter problems for homeowners, out of sight is really out of mind. While gutters may seem forgettable and minor, they actually play an essential role in protecting your home’s exterior and even safeguarding the structural integrity of your entire property. One of the most common problems with gutters is that they can clog, causing a great deal of other issues. Unprotected gutters will routinely clog with dirt, leaves, and debris. Clean your gutters regularly, or hire a local gutter cleaning company to help you out.

Know the Dangers

While clogged gutters are a burden, many homeowners never even think that costly damage is a real possibility. That’s why it’s essential for homeowners to understand why it’s important to maintain their gutters! In this blog, we are going to review some of the things you are putting at risk when living with clogged gutters.

Reasons to Leave Gutter Installation to the Pros

When it comes to projects around the house, many homeowners choose to make it a do-it-yourself (DIY) project. However, there are some tasks that are beyond the capabilities of some, such as the installation of gutters. Gutters play a key role in sustaining your home’s well-being. They keep your roof, foundation, and landscaping intact by directing water away from your premises. However, gutter systems only work properly if they are correctly installed, which is why we recommend hiring a local gutter installation company.

Why You Should Leave It to the Pros

While installing gutter guards by yourself can save you some cash, not having the proper experience can compromise the gutter system’s quality, even your safety. To yield the best results for your gutters, it’s preferable to hire professionals with a proven reputation and record. Here’s why:

Quality

Making gutter installation a DIY project will come with some challenges, the least of which is having to go buy and transport the materials yourself. Quality is another issue...
