When gutters plug and flow back under the roof, rot occurs. Luckily, we were able to repair this before it spread too far.
Pine needs are long, flexible, and, unfortunately, problematic for your gutters. They can clog up your gutters in no time at all. This is what was happening to this home owner in Snohomish, WA. We were able to solve this problem by installing MasterSheild gutter guards in green.
Marysville MasterShield Gutter Guard for Fir Needles.
Before, because of gutters clogged with fir needles, this home had rotten fascia and the tongue and groove soffit was being attacked. After, we repaired the damaged fascia and soffits and installed the MasterShield Gutter Guard in white to prevent needles from messing with their gutters any longer. We also installed new white gutters and downspouts.
This home’s cedar wood shake roof was completely worn out when its owner contacted us. The roof had been rotting for years because of the gutters, which were constantly clogging with pine needles. When gutters become clogged, more often than not, the backflowing water goes directly into the house and causes hidden water damage. This homeowner figured it was the perfect time to upgrade the whole system.
Our crew replaced his rotten roof with a much sturdier architectural asphalt composition shingle roof, and to prevent further water damage, we installed our MasterShield gutter protection system in musket brown. The gutters and downspouts were also replaced with our product in almond. The “After Photo” pictured in this post was actually taken 3 years after the original installation, and the homeowner claimed that he hasn’t had to do anything to maintain the system. The pine needles—that were such a problem before—simply slide right off the MasterShield covers onto the ground, where they can be easily collected. The neighbors were so impressed that they also want to install MasterShield on their home.
This roof had significant water damage from clogged gutters. We offered to simply repair the damage, but since it was only slightly more expensive, the owner decided to just replace the roof and upgrade it to a 50-year roof. We then replaced the gutter system with new black gutters and installed black MasterShield to protect their gutters from all the needles and leaves that plague them year round. Our team also came out with our mobile gutter replacement technology and made everything custom on site. This is the best solution for gutter guards in the Northwest.
