When you start to notice cracks, leaks, holes, and sagging in your gutters, it’s likely time for new gutters to be installed. The life expectancy of gutters is about 10 to 15 years, and when the time comes to have your gutters replaced, it’s not something that you’ll want to avoid having done. Water leaks from broken gutters can lead to serious water damage to a home, and it’s definitely not worth the risk to let your gutters wear down to the point where you’re noticing any kind of exterior damage to your home before you get your gutters replaced.

At Iron Horse GutterWorks, we offer gutter installation in Syracuse and the surrounding areas. We also have some advice on the best kind of gutters that you should have installed on your home for the most effective protection against water leaks, leaves, and other debris that can clog your gutters and keep them from draining properly.

Seamless Gutters

Gutters are an important part of any home, as they are the main protection that keeps water away from the foundation of your home. Seamless gutters are ideal for ultimate protection against water leaks. Seamless gutters only have seams on the corners, whereas other do-it-yourself gutters typically come in 10-foot sections and require you to link them together. This, in turn, gives you multiple seams along your gutters, which leads to increased risk of water leaks. Seamless gutters are usually made out of metal, and the professionals at Iron Horse GutterWorks can have the gutters cut to fit the length of your home, giving you custom gutters and better protection against water.

LeafLock® Protection

Along with our seamless gutters, we offer LeafLock protection, which is an aluminum shield that covers your full-sized gutters to ensure that your gutters stay free of leaves and other debris that can cause major blockage, leading to the disruption of water being able to drain safely away from your home. To install the LeafLock protection, we simply mount the cover over your gutters with durable brackets and, in turn, you’ll get the peace-of-mind knowing that your gutters are even less likely to have major water leaks.

SnapLock® System

For superior gutter installation that doesn’t cause damage to the exterior of your home, you’ll want to make sure that your gutters are installed with SnapLock technology. Instead of having your gutters installed by drilling into the exterior of your home, which can lead to water damage, wood rot, gutter separation, and, not to mention, holes in your home, SnapLock technology simply attaches to your roof with a metal hinge and safely mounts your gutters into place. You’ll be able to avoid exterior home damage and have a gutter system that is proven to not cause the aforementioned problems as a result of gutter installation.

Ditch and Drain Services

The downspout that is on your home is just as important in keeping water away from the foundation of your home as the actual gutters are. The downspout on your home will capture rainwater and disperse it into the ground evenly, which protects the foundation and landscaping of your home. At Iron Horse GutterWorks, we add an extra level of protection to your downspouts by adding a 10-foot solid pipe, followed by a socket pipe that runs underground and effectively redirects water. We also include ditch and drain services to inspect your yard and determine the area of your yard that would be best to have the water drain into.

When you choose Iron Horse GutterWorks, you get a comprehensive gutter system that will ensure the best protection for your home. Call Iron Horse GutterWorks for all of your gutter needs.
