PGRS: Professional Grade Roofing + Siding Case Studies: A home with no gutters? We can fix that! And we did on this home in Fairurn, Georgia

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 by Edward Rollins

Challenge

This Fairburn customer bought this home and much to their surprise there were absolutely no gutters installed on the back side of the house. Having no gutters can cause a lot larger problems than most people think of. In this homeowners case, the lack of gutters caused damage to the bottom boards of the siding on the back of the home. The bottom boards became damaged because the rainwater running off of the roof had nowhere to go but down, and down at the bottom was a concrete patio. The rainwater continued to splash off of the concrete patio and onto the bottom boards of the siding, causing it to rot and break down completely over time.

Solution

PGRS sent a Project Manager to complete a thorough inspection of the siding and lack of gutters, he then informed the homeowner that their best option would be to replace the damaged siding, wall decking, framing and obviously install some form of gutter onto their home so they can avoid this problem in the future! After Jason explained the benefits of this amazing gutter system they decided to install 6" Seamless Aluminum Gutters on the back of their home to control the rainwater from the roof.
