To fully protect your home and the surrounding terrain, the water landing on your roof in the form of rain, ice or snow must be conducted away from the structure. Without gutters, water and ice would wear away your siding, windows, lower roofs, foundation, landscaping — anything in the path of cascading water in all forms.
A roof from McKinnis Roofing does a great job of keeping rainwater out of your home. But the job is not finished unless we install an equally efficient gutter system to carry the water safely away from your home. A properly functioning gutter and downspout system is essential to keep water from entering your home and possibly causing flooding and structural damage.Gutters can be either exterior (hung outside the roof edge) or interior (built into the roof), and are generally constructed of wood, galvanized steel, aluminum or copper. Gutters and downspouts must be the right size to accommodate the expected volume of water without filling up and overflowing, all while looking proportional to your home.
