The gutter contractor at A & W Contracting and Continuous Gutters, LLC will analyze your roof area to determine what size of gutter your home or business needs. Our gutter expert will measure the surface area and calculate roughly how much water has to circulate away from the roof after a storm. With that information, as well as our knowledge of the average rainfall in the community, we will install either 5-inch or 6-inch gutters. You can trust that we have the experience and expertise to make the right choice for your situation.
There are other things you have to consider when it comes to choosing the right size gutter. In general, five-inch gutters are usually acceptable for most residential installations in St. Albans, WV. For homeowners with very large, steep pitch roofs, 6-inch gutters might be a better choice. A & W Contracting and Continuous Gutters will also take into account the average amount of rainfall in Kanawha County. The average rainfall helps determine the size of the gutter.
Five-inch gutters can hold significantly less water than six-inch gutters. Undersized gutters will lead to water overflowing your South Charleston, WV, gutters, especially when debris is clogging them. The small gutter and clogging problem can result in water coming back towards your home instead of water rushing away from it. There are a multitude of problems that can follow, including a flooded lawn, mud-splattered siding, and foundation problems. Those issues can affect your home’s curb appeal or, in the case of the foundation, more serious problems.
