The Importance Of Gutters For Your Eastern PA Home
To fully protect your home and the surrounding terrain, moisture landing on your roof in the form of rain, ice or snow must be conducted away from the structure. Without gutters, water and ice would wear away your siding, windows, lower roofs, foundation, landscaping — anything in the path of cascading water in all forms.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER GUTTERS
A roof from Master’s Roofing & Construction does a great job of keeping rainwater out of your home. But the job is not finished unless we install an equally efficient gutter system to carry the water safely away from your home. As an experienced Lehigh Valley and Poconos roofing contractor, we know that a properly functioning gutter and downspout system is essential to keep water from entering your home and possibly causing flooding and structural damage.
TYPES OF GUTTERS
Gutters can be either exterior (hung outside the roof edge) or interior (built into the roof), and are usually made of galvanized steel, aluminum or copper. Gutters and downspouts must be the right size to accommodate the expected volume of water without filling up and overflowing, all while looking proportional to your home.

REASONS TO ADD GUTTER GUARDS
Gutters guards serve several valuable purposes. First, they help prevent your gutters from getting clogged with leaves and branches. This eliminates the need to climb ladders to clean out your gutters. Having clogged gutters defeats the purpose of having gutters in the fist place, since gutters and downspouts are designed to divert damaging water away from your house and foundation. The primary gutter guard system that Master's Construction offers is designed to last the longest and do the best job of keeping your gutters debris-free.
