Why Are Gutters So Important?
Gutters are used to control the flow of water from your roof and redirect the water away from your home and its foundation. During heavy rain, water has to go somewhere. Without gutters, water can pool around the foundation of your home and seep into unwanted areas causing lasting damage to your home’s foundation. A proper gutter system prevents erosion of your home’s foundation, paint damage, mildew growth, and flooding.
In short a good gutter system:
- Protects from Soil Erosion
- Prevents Roofing and Siding Decay
- Guards Against Foundation Damage
- Helps Prevent Basement Flooding and Water Damage
- Enhanced Curb Appeal

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY GUTTERS BE CLEANED?
Ideally, your gutters should be cleaned and inspected twice a year- typically in the spring and fall. Gutter systems that are full of leaves or other debris prevent water from freely flowing and can back up causing roof leaks which can rot wood and lead to expensive repairs.
WHAT ARE 'LEAF CONTROL SYSTEMS'?
A leaf control system – whether added on to your existing gutter or as the type of gutter itself, blocks leaves and debris from building up in your gutter system. While it keeps large pieces of debris out, your gutters should still be inspected periodically as smaller ‘bits and pieces’ can get through and eventually back things up. There are many leaf control systems for gutters on the market today and Universal Roofing & Construction is happy to help you choose one that is appropriate for your needs.
HOW DO I CHOOSE SOMEONE TO INSTALL MY GUTTERS?
If price is all that matters, any name from the phone book or random roofing company can assist. But for something as vital to protecting your home as gutters, you should take the same care in selecting and hiring a contractor for that as you would your roof. Choose a contractor who is insured, experienced, local, provides references, and can guide you through the process and help you select the gutter system that will work best for you, your home, and budget.
WHAT ARE SEAMLESS ALUMINUM GUTTERS?
Originally, gutters were only sold in sections and pieces. Today, one piece of aluminum can be molded to length and installed as one single piece across your roof line. Seamless gutters minimize leaks due to their construction. Universal Roofing and Contractions has over 10 years of experience in roofing and gutter systems. Our Project Managers will guide you through the process, and help you find the right system for your home and needs.
