Gutterman of TN's Blog
One of the most important parts of your home is the foundation. In order to protect it from water damage, your home needs a good gutter system. Without gutters, water can pool around the foundation and leak into your home. If you live in the Middle Tennessee region, the Gutterman of Tennessee is the best professional expert on gutter systems that will keep your home in its best condition.
Whether you reside in Mt. Juliet or in Joelton, we provide superior professional gutter maintenance, repair, and installation services. To give your home the ultimate in protection from water damage, we strongly recommend the SafeGuard gutter guard system. We would like to tell you more about it and how it can benefit your home.
Made from surgical grade stainless steel micro-mesh, the SafeGuard gutter guard system is tough enough to withstand 60 gallons of water per minute in any given rainstorm. Unlike other gutter guard systems, the mesh openings are small enough to keep the smallest bits of debris such as pine needles and oak tassels from clogging up your gutters. Another advantage of the surgical grade stainless steel is that it will not corrode over time.
PATENTED HEMMING PROCESS
SafeGuard uses a patented process called hemming that mechanically bonds the micro-mesh into the aluminum body to provide a durable connection that can stand up to the elements of weather over the years. Other gutter guard systems simply glue or crimp the mesh into the body, and this has been proven to pull away over time, which allows debris to enter your gutters.
PROVIDES STABILITY TO YOUR GUTTER SYSTEM
With its specialized installation design, SafeGuard provides the strength, which can stabilize your entire gutter system. When the Gutterman of Tennessee installs these guards on your system, we will screw the front of the guard to the lip of your gutter and then screw the back leg to the fascia. This prolongs the life of the guard because the gutter is squeezed tightly by the torque of the second screw.
For a gutter system that is strong and durable enough to stand up to the elements over the years, contact us today at The Gutterman of Tennessee to learn more about our SafeGuard gutter guard installation services. We are here for your professional gutter needs in the Middle Tennessee area.

How do you know when gutters need to be replaced?
A visual inspection of your gutters is enough to determine if your gutters need a replacement or not. Generally, gutters will last for 10 to 15 years. If you are past or close to this time frame for your gutters, you should inspect your gutters. Walk around gutters to look for cracks, holes or sagging. On a rainy day, you can take a walk to see if your gutters are leaking or overflowing in any place. When your gutters have deteriorated to the point of being unsightly, or if they are no longer effectively diverting water runoff from your roof, it’s time to replace your gutters.

When you start gutter shopping, you will soon realize that there are a lot of options on the market for gutter replacements. Gutters come in a variety of shapes, materials, and colors. The type of gutters you choose for your home will depend on your style, the amount of water generated by your roofline and your budget.

Keep your gutters flowing with gutter guards from The Gutterman of TN

The gutter guards are made from ultrafine stainless-steel mesh. The mesh is fitted in a sturdy framing that fits snuggly on gutters. The micromesh allows rainwater to pass easily into the gutters while keeping the majority of debris out. Because the mesh on these gutter guards is so fine, even small particles like roof grit, pine needles, and air-borne seeds can’t find their way into your gutters. That means that they don’t need to be unclogged of debris that collects on top of the gutter or that finds its way in through the gutter guard.

Nothing can damage a home quite like water can. It can destroy your foundation, rot your home’s supporting structure and lead to mold and mildew growth. In short, water can cause extensive, costly damage to your home. As scary as water damage sounds, there’s one thing that can save your home from serious water damage: properly functioning gutters. Here is what you need to know about protecting your home from water damage.
How gutters work to protect your home
Gutters are responsible for capturing the water that falls onto your roof from rain, snow, sleet or ice. When gutters are functioning properly, water rolls down your roof and into the gutters. The captured water then flows through your gutters and into downspouts, which carry the water a safe distance from your home. Gutter function may seem simple, but it takes the right gutters installed the right way to keep your home safe from water. Your home requires gutters that are properly sized for the size and pitch of your roof and they have to be properly pitched to carry water away from your home. Downspouts must terminate in the right place, or water can flow back toward your home’s foundation. Finally, your gutters must be kept clear of debris and ice so that water can continue to flow through the gutter system.
If your gutters aren’t functioning properly, your home can face several problems, including:
- Water-stained or damaged siding
- Rotting window and door frames
- Water-damaged roof
- Mold and mildew growth in your home
- Damp or flooded basement
- Cracked or deteriorating foundation and
- Flooded or damaged landscaping
