Gutter Maintenance

Gutter maintenance season is here and many homeowners need to be aware of how to keep there gutters functioning properly. Not often do we come across homeowners who think about rain gutters when thinking about roofing. With so much change in the weather, we wanted to give an small insight on why many should “focus on gutters”.

Rain gutters perform many important functions for the home, including: help prevent erosion, helping to prevent water damage, help avoid foundation problems and much more. We always suggest making sure your gutters are installed correctly for if not, the maintenance experience of roofing will be a waste of time. When the gutters are installed, they should not hold standing water, leak, and should be securely fastened to the fascias. The downspouts should be fastened to the exterior of the house as well and should not have anything blocking the output. Regular check ups and maintenance should be applied often to keep gutters in top performance. Sometimes, high winds and severe weather can rip off the gutters and even place debris in the way of clear gutter flow.

Here at Alexander Roofing, we provide services of gutter installation and maintenance. Alexander Roofing has been assisting with roofing services for many years and would like to extend our services to you. Contact us today via our website or call us today at (803) 960.0837.

4 Types of Roofing Materials

As a homeowner, roofing tends to be one of the least exciting things on the to do list. Question is, are you knowledgeable about the common types of roofing? Here at Alexander Roofing, we strive to educate our clients about general roofing and options available. Maybe you’re one who wants to repair the current roof or one who wants to explore other options available. In this blog, we will give insight to 4 common types of roofing.
First on our list is Composite or Asphalt Shingles. They are the most common type of roofing materials. Made of fiberglass, these three-tab shingles are topped with asphalt and mineral granules. Commonly having 20 to 30 year warranties, these are an all around great choice for home roofing needs.
Next on our list is Rolled Roofing. Rolled Roofing typically comes in rolls of 100 square feet, each about 3 feet wide. It’s a fast and dirt cheap way to roof buildings such as sheds or workshops. Although many would say it’s not the most attractive material, it’s recommended for buildings with low or no slope.
Metal Roofing is next on the list and it’s becoming a popular choice for high-end homes. This type of roofing is fire resistant and provides a boost in resale value. Although this type of material is great, this type of roofing is more expensive than some of the other roofing materials. Installation of this type must be provided by highly experienced professionals. Lucky for you, Alexander Roofing is here to help.
Last but not least on the list of materials is HyrdroStop. HydroStop has several layers of waterproofing coats that can be reapplied if issues occur. The material is UV resistant, flexible and offers protection from strong winds. This type of material usually last about 25 years.
We hope this information is helpful to you before you tackle your next roofing project. Here at Alexander Roofing, we want to help you make the decisions that are right for you and your home. We will be updating the blog often with different tips and useful information so continue to follow us.
