How Gutter Components Work Together to Protect Your Home

By September 21, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

Potential water damage to your home is a serious issue, which is why you need to invest in a quality gutter system to protect it. Your gutters collect rainwater from the roof and direct it away from exterior components, especially the foundation.

What Makes Up a Gutter System?

At Huff ‘N Puff, we install seamless gutters on-site. We use a metal-forming machine that produces a piece of gutter that has been custom-sized to fit your roofline. This type of gutter is less prone to leaks and looks cleaner.

We then put in a downspout at the corner of your home, at the end of the gutter. It comes with an end cap that gives the system a finished look. The downspout connects the gutter to a drop outlet, which is attached to two elbows. This is where rainwater runs through, so we reinforce the area using straps.

Before we install a leaf guard in Schenectady, New York, we make sure that the downspouts are a few feet away from your home’s foundation. This prevents basement flooding and soil erosion.

We then top your gutters with Gutter Helmet®, the leading gutter system in the country. As a certified dealer, we know how to install this system over any type of gutter. It has a patented nose-forward design and textured surface that filters leaves and dirt from water effectively. It also comes with strong brackets that add durability to the system.

Why Invest in a Gutter System?

Gutters are important to any home because they keep serious moisture-related issues at bay. These include rotten wood around windows, stained siding and damaged fascia. Quality gutters also preserve your landscaping. With properly functioning gutters, you also don’t have to worry about cracked foundations and mold.

If you need quality gutters on your home, you can trust Huff ‘N Puff. We are the leading source for gutter systems for area homes. Instead of a leaf guard in Schenectady, New York, we’ll install Gutter Helmet on your gutters. As a certified dealer, we can offer you a lifetime warranty for your peace of mind. Call us today at (800) 824-3772 to learn more about gutters. We’ll be happy to give you a free quote.
