While there are certainly more thrilling home improvement projects out there, choosing and installing a new gutter system can be one of the least expensive, but most critical, of all home repairs. Improving the drainage around the home can have a significant impact on the stability of the foundation and the life of the home. Having a properly functioning gutter system is also one of the surest ways to prevent water damage from occurring.
An improperly functioning gutter system can contribute to several problems that most homeowners are unaware of.
For example, dysfunctional gutter systems can lead to water backing up against fascias and under roof shingles, can damage soffits, and can discolor or deteriorate siding materials. Faulty gutters systems can also lead to soil erosion adjacent to buildings and serious water and foundation displacement problems in basements and crawl spaces. Other signs of a faulty system are rotted wood, cracked and blistering paint, worn mortar joints, and settling cracks in patios, walkways and driveways.
The T-Rex® is a continuous fastening system for eavestroughs. It mounts rain gutters solidly on houses, making them much sturdier and more long-lasting that those mounted with spikes and hangers spaced at intervals. The T-Rex continuous hanger™ system protects eavestroughs from damage caused by debris, snow, ice and UV rays.
