Colorado loves to flaunt its seasonal weather. Rain, snow, hail, and strong winds bring heavy winters and lush springs, and beautiful weather in between, but the elements take a serious toll on residential gutter systems. You can replace rusted sections or patch them up, but doing so requires frequent upkeep and financial investment. Rust is irreversible, and replacement is usually the only way to fix the problem.
Unfortunately, you can’t really maintain a sturdy home without a gutter system, especially in Colorado. And deciding not to have a gutter system at all is simply not an option. Rain gutters divert rainwater so that it can drain properly. Without a gutter system, yards can flood, land can erode, and the overflow of water can damage the house or the foundation itself. A damaged gutter system doesn’t do a homeowner much good either. If a gutter system is old or defective, rainwater is not properly diverted. A clogged gutter full of wet leaves can attract mold and insects; both of which are not necessarily welcome guests in the home.
So, what do you do when your gutter system is damaged? Do you get to work with a DIY gutter project or do you call a gutter contractor? Depending on the severity of the problem at hand, hiring a gutter contractor might save your more money in the long run.
When to Hire a Gutter Contractor
The DIY approach allows homeowners to have total control over their home repairs. Many people attempt DIY because it reduces overall cost. A DIY repair also means making your own schedule, buying your own materials and equipment, and choosing the style of gutter you want. However, there is a risk involved with the DIY approach. You risk your safety when doing it yourself. Falling off a ladder or off the roof can cause severe injuries including broken bones and concussions. Youtube tutorials might be insightful, but hanging gutters isn’t as easy as it looks.
By hiring a gutter contractor, you avoid risking your safety. Professional contractors are experienced with gutter systems and can properly attach seams, secure the gutter system, and repair gutter sections without damaging any materials. Hiring a contractor ensures that the job is done properly. An improperly installed gutter system, or worse, an injury caused by falling while installing a gutter system, can end up creating more financial and physical stress than you’d ever have to deal with when hiring a professional.
