The Benefits Of Having Jenesis Roofing Install Or Repair Your K-Style Gutters Or Your Seamless Half-Round Gutters!

There are many benefits to having Jenesis Roofing install or repair your K-style or your seamless half-round gutter system. Both K-style and seamless half-round systems have a wide variety of benefits, and by analyzing and determining the benefits of each of these types of gutter systems, a homeowner can easily decide which gutter system would be the best for their home.

Installation

Jenesis Roofing offers full installation services for both gutter system types. Generally, the price for the installation is about the same for either gutter system…the installation time is fairly similar as well.

Repairs

Jenesis Roofing does all types of repairs for both K-style and seamless half-round gutters. Failures can occur to a gutter system due to inclement weather and other events. And much of the time, having your gutter system repaired will cost less than having a new gutter installed.
Jenesis Roofing will fully inspect your gutter system to determine whether it would be better for your home to have its gutter system repaired or to simply have a new system installed all together.

K-Style

K-style gutter systems are modern gutter systems that are used in about 80% of the new homes built today. K-style gutter systems are exceptionally durable and long-lasting, and when dealing with rain water, K-style gutter systems usually do an excellent job in any climate.
K-style gutter systems are relatively inexpensive when compared to many other types, and one of the reasons for this is due to its popularity. The material is very abundant.

Seamless Half-Round Gutter Systems

The other type of gutter system Jenesis Roofing specializes in is a seamless half-round gutter system. Seamless half-round gutters are more traditional types of gutter systems that have been used on homes for many decades. And, of course, this system provides excellent control of flowing water off of your roof.
Many homeowners trust seamless half-round gutter systems because they have lasted so long on so many homes. This system can also serve as an accent or a design addition for your home.

Strength

Both K-style gutter systems and seamless half-round gutter systems are particularly strong, but when holding larger amounts of water, the K-style system is stronger due to its exceptional design.

How Much Water

Due to its design, a K-style gutter system can hold slightly more water than a seamless half-round gutter system even if the two systems have the same diameter. This is due to its squared bottom side.

Debris

Debris can accumulate more easily in K-style gutter systems because of their sharp edges, and when using a seamless half-round gutter system, homeowners usually have much less debris to clear at the end of the season because the debris generally will flow much smoother through the rounded gutter style.
When looking for a new gutter system, there are many things to consider. Some of these include installation, cost, repairs, style, durability, and and overall function. Call Jenesis Roofing today for a free estimate on all gutter installation and repair work for your home or business!

Common Roofing Maintenance Issues

Roof-MaintenanceYour roof is an integral part of every house or building which protects us from the crazy weather that can happen above. Without the tops to our homes and businesses, we could have ruined interiors and possibly an unhappy, unhealthy place of residence/business. Read on to discover five common roofing maintenance issues and how they can affect repair and/or replacement costs.

Clogged or Damage Gutters

When a roof has been improperly cared for it can lead to clogged or otherwise damaged gutters. Since the gutters safely transfer the water from your roof to the grounds preventing water damage to the exterior siding and fascia boards, it is imperative they drain correctly. If the gutters do not drain properly, it can cause the water to backup underneath the shingles and seep into the walls causing expensive repairs and/or replacements.

Damaged or Missing Shingles

Shingles are the pieces of material that protect the top of your house or building from various weather conditions and other unforeseen incidents that may occur. If the shingles are damaged, missing, or balding, it can lead to water leakage…causing harm to your attic, walls, roof, as well as other possible structural damage.

Moisture

Moisture can cause your insulation to become saturated and lose its initial r-value (how well the water heater’s insulation will help prevent heat loss through its tank). The added water and moisture can cause mold, rust, poor levels of indoor air quality, and extra weight on the roof itself…leading to even more costly repairs or replacements.

Cracks

Unpredictable weather and poor roofing conditions can leave your home susceptible to cracks. These cracks can unknowingly leave easy access points for water and other unwanted pests like termites and other insects to enter. Cracks can also leave your home or building predisposed to our next issue…

Leaks

Interior-Water-DamageAn older home or building may develop the aforementioned cracks that lead to unknown leaking. These leaks could go undetected for a long period of time as the water can travel through the housetop system before displaying any sort of visual evidence. Leaking can lead to ceiling damage, energy loss, mold, mildew, as well as other structural damage.

All of these problems are consequences which can arise from an improperly maintained roof. If your home or other structure is decades old or has noticeable damage to the gutters and shingles, or if there are more widespread problems due to cracks, leaks or moisture, repairing the problems may not be the answer. At this time it would be advisable to contact a professional roofing company like Jenesis Roofing who can expertly replace all the broken and/or otherwise damaged parts.
