Gutter Installation Services in Texas

A properly functioning gutter system is one of the most important things you need to protect the longevity of your home. Texas has a great deal of rainfall, as you know! San Antonio alone averages around 32 inches of rain per year. With your average 3000 square foot roof that means the equivalent of about 1,400 bath tubs of water pouring off your roof each year. If you don’t have a way to route that water away from your home’s foundation it can lead to serious and costly long term foundation issues.

Why Utilize Professional Gutter Installation?Presidio employee mounting gutter on house

There’s no denying that there’s a lot of information on the internet about how to install your own gutters and it can be tempting to click a YouTube tutorial and follow along. While in some ways it’s a relatively simple concept, the skills, knowledge, and experience Presidio experts bring to the process have a significant impact in a variety of areas.

The first thing to understand is that a gutter shouldn’t be considered as a separate element from the roof. Rather, it’s important to see them both as part of a combined mechanism to ensure water runs away efficiently in the safest direction. The pitch of your roof can influence the volume and speed of the water running down to your gutters. This can determine the size, type, and even the pitch of the gutter that needs to be installed on your property to prevent ineffective drainage. A professional installer can assess these aspects more accurately, minimizing the potential for costly or damaging errors.

The pitch of your roof isn’t the only aspect that can affect the gutter installation, either. Even regional weather conditions can mean a varied approach. Particularly if you’ve moved from a different state to Texas, you may be surprised how what seems like a small difference in the rainfall volume can mean that a different size of gutter is required. This is where collaborating with Presidio’s local experts can be valuable. We have years of experience installing gutters and roofing systems in the San Antonio, Austin, and Denton and Dallas Fort Worth areas, and know the challenges property owners face here. As such, you have the reassurance that your gutter installation is suited to your home.

At the most basic level, though, a gutter installation by a professional is a faster and more reliable approach to the process. You minimize any potential safety issues that may arise from installing the gutters yourself, too.

What Happens if You Need a Gutter Repair?Presidio employee repairing gutter on house

In some cases, an entire gutter replacement won’t be necessary. When Presidio’s professionals visit you to provide a quote, we won’t recommend replacements that aren’t essential, aren’t more cost effective than repairs, or don’t represent an improvement to your current set-up. However, it is vital for the integrity of your property that your gutters are in good working order. As such, if a full gutter installation isn’t needed, we may recommend immediate repairs.

There are a couple of common gutter issues that can be repairable. Firstly, if you discover there are leaks in your gutters, it may be the case that they have become disconnected from each other or the downspout. This is a relatively simple matter that requires realignment and connection. However, if there are cracks causing leaks in your gutter, it can be wise to replace that component completely, rather than attempt a stop-gap repair.

Another repairable problem that can arise is gutter sagging. This usually occurs when your gutters become too clogged with debris, causing water and other items to place excess weight on your gutters. The fix for this usually involves tightening or replacing the hardware holding the gutter to your roof. However, as this may also require ensuring the pitch of the gutter is correct, it can be wise to seek professional guidance here.

Prevention is always better than cure, though. Whether you’re having a full gutter installation or a repair, it’s important to follow this up with a commitment to regular routine maintenance. You should perform a full clean and inspection of your gutters at least twice a year. However, if you’ve experienced heavy storms, it’s worth doing additional checks the morning afterwards. Remove any debris that has built up in the gutters and around the downspout. Most blockages can be cleared either by hand — don’t forget to wear gloves — or a high-pressure water hose. You should also spend time checking for holes or rusting areas, as this can mean you need replacements.

Whether you require a full gutter installation for your Texas home or are unsure of the best course of action for addressing damage, Presidio Roofing experts are here to help. We are dedicated to ensuring your roof and gutters function as an effective unit for the long-term. So give us a call if you need a free gutter installation or repair estimate at (210) 899-5600!
