New Habitat Home, New Ned Stevens Gutters
At Ned Stevens Gutter Cleaning of Long Island, we know all too well the importance of having a reliable and dependable gutter installation on a home. Because the home is the largest purchase most of us will make in our lifetime, it’s vital to protect the investment. And new gutters are simply a must have on any home, which is why we partnered with Habitat for Humanity to donate a full new gutter installation for the new homeowners.
The gutters are tasked with the very important role of diverting water away from the property to prevent damage. Suffolk County’s heavy rains can wreak havoc on critical parts of the structure, especially the foundation, doors, windows, and siding. If the home doesn’t have gutters, the homeowner can end up with a gargantuan list of damages and hefty repair bill.
For instance, water can pool around the foundation of the home and make its way into areas where no homeowner wants water to be. In the end, the gutters on the home work to preserve the foundation, protect the landscape, prevent erosion, and avoid basement flooding. In addition, gutters work to prevent staining on the outside of the home, prevent mildew and mold growth, and mitigate paint damage.
Making a Difference – One Gutter Installation at a Time
When we partnered with Habitat to donate a new gutter installation, it included the full Ned Stevens Gutter Cleaning of Long Island service. We only use the best materials and the most state-of-the-art forming tools when performing gutter installations. We never use cheap or inferior products and always help our customers choose the best rain gutters to protect the home through all seasons.
During the installation, we worked closely with Habitat and the homeowner to provide them with the full experience. We offered guidance and helped the homeowner select the most appropriate gutter downspouts, the type of gutter system, gutter material, and color. We wanted to make sure the gutter system accented the architectural design of the home without standing out.
How Can Homeowners Maintain the Gutter System?
Our team of installers educate homeowners on the importance of having regularly scheduled gutter cleanings to make sure the system continues to perform as designed. Because most people struggle to remember to schedule their cleanings, we offer multiple cost-saving gutter cleaning service contracts that can be customized to the homeowner's specific needs. To help reduce the number of required cleanings, many homeowners choose to install gutter guards or gutter protection, which helps prevent leaves, pine needles, and debris from ever entering the gutter system.
