Photo Album: MasterShield Gutter System Installed in Kent, WA
Rotting Cedar Wood Shake Roof in Kent, WA — The roof of this home was completely rotted, caused byclogged and backflowing gutters. This is what the roof looked like before our team replaced it with a new architectural asphalt composition shingle roof.
Dark, Sludge-Filled Gutters in Kent, Washington — The gutters on this home had been clogging with pine needles for quite a while, so they were coated with a dark sludge. The downspout also let out onto the roof, causing additional damage to the roof.
Gutters Become a Home for Stagnant Water — Pine needles clogged these gutters to the point where a stagnant body of water was constantly present.
Signs of Gutter Clogging and Back-Flow in Kent, WA — Generally, "tiger stripes" appear on the outside of gutters and they indicate a clogged and backflowing gutter system. When gutters become clogged, the water cannot flow through the system, so instead, it spills over the side of the gutter and leaves behind the dirty tracks that we call "tiger stripes." This house is unique because the tiger stripes appear on the board connected to the gutters. This means that, instead of flowing over the outer lip of the gutter, the water was repeatedly flowing into the roof.
MasterShield still Performing 3 Years after Installation:
This photo was taken 3 years after the original installation date, and the homeowner is still loving his new architectural asphalt composition shingle roof and MasterShield gutter system in musket brown. He hasn't had to do anything at all to maintain the system. His neighbors are so impressed with our product that they now want to install MasterShield on their home.
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.
