New gutter installation and gutter protection in Columbus, Ohio, from Wingler Construction & Remodeling. Gutters are a pain. When you're up on a ladder cleaning them out for the hundredth time, you may be wondering why a house even needs gutters. While this is a totally valid question, gutters are actually very important to the maintenance of your entire home.
When water isn't properly diverted away from your home, costly problems can develop. Gutters move water away from your home so the structure is protected from potential damage, such as:
You can avoid damages and other problems by making sure gutters are installed around your entire home and the downspouts are directing water at least three feet away from the base of the building.
The key to proper gutter maintenance is to keep them clear and free-flowing because gutters can be a lot of work unless they are protected. If your gutters look more like a garden instead of a system designed to protect your home from water damage, then you already know one of the reasons why gutter guards can be important. Plants and small trees belong in the yard, not on your roof.
Unprotected gutters can collect debris falling from surrounding trees and carried on the wind. No matter where you live, nature’s elements can find a way into your gutters, causing serious problems. Gutter protection in is especially important because of the wide variety of weather conditions we get in central Ohio.
When a gutter is clogged, one rainfall and it can fill with water, overflow, and becomes totally useless. Issues caused by debris collecting in your gutters include:
Cleaning your gutters regularly can help stop potential problems, but many people don’t want to climb a tall ladder several times a year to do it. In fact, gutter cleaning is notoriously one of the worst outdoor chores.
To help save homeowners from doing all the dirty work, the RHINO Gutter Guard® system creates a protective barrier that keeps leaves, seeds, pine needles, shingle grit, and other debris out of your gutters.
Sure, there are other gutter systems on the market, like reverse curves, hoods, foam, screens, and other mesh guards. But the goal is to keep debris out while allowing water in. RHINO Gutter Guard® does it better than the others because their system optimizes water flow while keeping all debris out.
These gutter guards are made from aluminum and surgical-grade stainless steel micro-mesh, so they can safely control a large amount of water while also keeping out small pieces of debris. RHINO Gutter Guard® also address trouble spots such as inside roof valleys, bay windows, and heavy water streams created by upper stories or underneath dormers.
Many homeowners complain about animals nesting in their gutters or burrowing into their attics. RHINO’s downspout caps are made from steel mesh, creating a barrier that animals cannot pass through. To ensure debris, pests, or small animals can’t enter your gutters through openings at the end points, we install end caps that enclose the entire gutter system.
Many companies claim their product will end gutter cleaning forever. After installed, however, they fail due to poor material quality, bad design, or the inability to stand up to Mother Nature. At Wingler Construction & Remodeling, RHINO’s gutter products are our first choice for gutter protection because they utilize the finest materials and enforce strict quality control measures.
As the most trusted gutter protection system on the market, RHINO Gutter Guard® comes with a 20-year warranty that guarantees the system will stand up against outdoor elements and protect your home.
If the openings in the mesh are too large, small debris such as pine needles and shingle granules can get into the gutters. If they’re too tight, water cannot pass through fast enough. RHINO’s micro-mesh openings are optimally sized to prevent small debris from entering your gutter system while also handling up to 60 gallons of water per minute. Plus, the surgical grade stainless steel won’t corrode over time.
Made from embossed aluminum, the textured surface prevents debris from sticking to the gutters while allowing air flow to continue underneath.
Mesh gutter guards that glue, caulk, or crimp the mesh into the guard’s body pull away over time, allowing debris to enter the gutters. By mechanically bonding the micro-mesh into the aluminum body, a secure connection is formed that won’t come apart, even after years of weathering.
RHINO Gutter Guard® strengthens and stabilizes your gutters and helps secure them to your house. This means even during heavy winds, storms, or snow and ice loads (all of which occur in the central Ohio region), your gutters stay put.
