Gutters are a major component of a solid working roofing system. The roof can be of exceptional quality, but if the gutters are not efficient in deterring the water away from the house in an effective manner, then complications can occur. Moisture can occur near the edges of the roof, creating mold and mildew in the roofing materials. Structural damage and water seepage are other severe issues that will need addressing.
Perhaps you decide it is time to protect your home and roof with a new gutter system. What will it cost in the Southeastern Massachusetts area? On average, new gutters can cost approximately $10 per linear foot. This cost, however, will fluctuate depending on the material chosen and the size of the home.

Types of Gutters
It’s tough to beat the quality of seamless gutters! These gutters are custom-cut on-site, then installed immediately. The lack of seams makes them durable, and long-lasting, and will rarely crack or split.
These gutters are amazing and speak for themselves! They resemble a tube cut in half, which makes them a breeze since debris cannot get cluttered in corners or crevices.
These gutters are perfect for a touch of class. They are designed to look like interior trim and can give any home a sophisticated look. They are shaped as a “k”, hence the name. The flat area of the gutter is what is nailed into the fascia board and therefore no brackets are needed.
Regardless of what type of gutters you choose, it is wise to consider gutter guards as well. Combined with a properly installed gutter system, these guards reduce maintenance costs and time by making it difficult for debris to clog up the gutter system. The amount of time and money you can save with gutter guards practically pays for itself.

Evidence of Critters
Birds, squirrels, snakes, and rodents can make a lovely home in gutters and downspouts. They see no problem in creating families in the security of your gutters. However, they can create quite a bit of damage. It is best to regularly inspect the gutters and downspouts to deter their homemaking and encourage them to build their families elsewhere.
The nearby trees, as well as birds, can drop seeds into the gutter system. With the proper amount of water, sunshine, and debris, before too long, plants can emerge and now there is a forest growing in your gutter system. By using gutter guards, and regularly cleaning them out, the potential of plants growing in your gutters can be reduced.
Water Spilling Over the Edge
During a rainstorm, if you notice water spilling over the edges of your gutters, it is a wise conclusion that there is a debris buildup. Depending on how long the debris buildup has been present, will determine the extent of damage caused. Once again, gutter guards and regular maintenance can eliminate the complications.
