Do you have a traditional uncovered gutter system? If so, you’re likely familiar with the process of cleaning out your gutters. Climbing a ladder to clean gutters is time-consuming, dirty, and can be hazardous. Make sure to practice proper ladder safety when cleaning gutters. While cleaning gutters is not fun, it can save money and stress in the future. When debris builds up inside the gutter, it disrupts water flow during rainfall. This causes water to overflow out of the front and back of the gutter. Overflowing water may cause costly damage to the fascia board, roof deck, or foundation of the home. Water can also pool up in low areas under the gutter system when the gutters do not properly channel it away from the home. Keeping the gutter system clear can prevent problems like these:

If you’re looking for a new gutter system, it’s important to find a durable, quality product that collects rainwater and directs it safely away from the home. If you’re tired of climbing a ladder and cleaning out your gutters to prevent clogs, then you might be looking for a gutter protection product. Gutter protection products come in a few forms. They can either be add-on gutter guards and screens for your existing gutters, or complete replacement gutter systems. One important factor to consider when researching gutter protection products is the warranty coverage. Warranty language and exclusions can reveal important information about the quality of the product.
Most professionally installed gutter systems have some kind of warranty protection. Do-it-yourself gutters that are sold by hardware stores may not have warranty protection. Some companies use misleading language in their warranties in an attempt to deceive consumers into thinking that they a...
Different maintenance strategies are effective for residential and commercial roofs. One common process for flat commercial roofs is coating. Roof coating can improve the appearance of the roof, provide energy savings, and add protection against leaking. Roof coating is often a good option to extend the life of the roof without the cost of replacing the entire roof. If you’re thinking about coating your commercial roof, there are a few coating types from which to choose. Consider the pros and cons of three popular coating types, from GAF:
Acrylic roof coatings are water-based and cost-effective. Acrylic coatings work well in most climates and for a variety of roofs. They are UV resistant and easy to work with. Acrylic coatings do lose thickness with weathering. They also require temperatures over 50 degrees during application and can struggle with ponding water.
Polyurethane coatings have the best impact resistance among...
When you choose to fix or replace your old roof, it’s important to find the right roofing contractor. A trusted, reliable roofing contractor can help you find the right roofing material and perform a quality roof repair or installation. Low quality materials and rushed, poor installation can lead to problems with your newly installed roof. Avoid these issues by considering these tips when looking for a roofing contractor, from GAF:
- Get local referrals: Contractors with experience in your area are likely to be more familiar with local codes and regulations.
- Look for manufacturer designations: Manufacturer designations give contractors a certain level of credibility, since they must pass certain requirements to receive the designation. Only 3% of all roofing contractors qualify for Master Elite status.
- Consider Better Business Bureau ratings: If a contractor is not listed on the BBB website, this could be a red flag. GAF Master Elite Contractors are required to m...
