What Are Gutters?

What are Gutters in Palm Beach?

By definition, gutters are a shallow trough fixed beneath the edge of a roof for carrying off rainwater. But to us, they are so much more than that. Gutters come in many shapes and forms are installed with a specific purpose in mind. They help add structural integrity to your overall property as well. An inch of water or rainfall doesn’t sound like much but when it falls on an average sized roof, it can add up to 2000-3000 gallons to the surrounding perimeter on a household. That’s a lot of potential property damage if you don’t have gutters installed or if your old gutters are not suited to handle such stress.
