While Cleaning my gutters I Saw…..

While Cleaning my gutters I Saw…..
I self-admittedly dislike cleaning rain gutters, but we still had not installed Gutter Topper on our personal garage until recently.  Our barn and entire house has our gutter system including Gutter Topper, except our garage.  Why?  because I could reach them with a 6-foot ladder and it provided me with some exercise…right?
Let me provide a little history.  Back in year 2000 we discovered Gutter Topper as a solution to protecting gutter systems and decided to test it on our barn.  With heavy snow loads in New Hampshire and Vermont, we quickly realized Gutter Topper created a year-round maintenance free gutter system surviving our New England winters.  We have since carried Gutter Topper installing over 20 miles of it since becoming a certified trained installation dealer in 2000 serving Central and Southern NH and VT.   Our brother in law, Bill Worth and wife Joanne, (Worth’s Seamless Rain Gutters Inc) in Derby Vermont carries it too!

But despite all of the above and co-owning a rain gutter business with my husband for the past 20 years while living in New London NH, I had still cleaned out our garage gutters until……I had a visitor stop in while I was cleaning my gutters.  He entered our chicken coop which is attached to our garage.  I nearly fell off my ladder!  Mr. Bear quietly peeled the chicken wire off the 2x4 to make his way into our coop.  As I stood on my 6-foot step ladder, Mr. Bear sat, scratched his head and searched for a fine feathered mid-afternoon snack.  I didn’t know what to do!  So, I did the only thing I could, I took my iPhone out of my arm band and snapped a few pictures.  I quietly climbed off the ladder and ran into my house.   Safely inside watching Mr. Bear from my window.


Since then Gutter Topper has been installed on my garage, leaving me with more interesting, safer things to do, like practice and study my ChiRunning and ChiWalking, exercise, cook, clean my house, go fishing, spending time with family and friends, travel and work on my blogging.  Anything but clean gutters!

So what does Gutter Topper do? 
·      It handles 21 inches of rainfall per hour.
·      Withstands a load of 300 pounds per lineal foot, surviving New England Winters.
·      Withstands sustained winds of 100 mph.
·      Keeps me (and you) off the ladder while enjoying life safely.

Some of the other Gutter Topper Benefits are:

·      Every installation is custom fit to your roof, this is not a one size fits all system.
·      Stanchion system is continuous across the front which provides support for heavy snow and ice loads and prevents wind lift or vibration and eliminates bird nesting.  And to view more, please see the link below.

·      Eliminate thinking about your gutter system;  Year Round.
  So what happened to Mr. Bear?  
He found no mid-afternoon snack and decided to go to the neighbors.

The photo attached of the fallen gutter, is a 2-year-old gutter system that was installed by another company.  Unfortunately for the homeowner, the fallen gutter system was sold to them with a warranty that it would not fail; regrettably the warranty was not honoured, nor did the original company return the calls from the homeowner when the gutter fell after the 2nd winter.  All too often we are going on sites with scenarios such as this.
Attention to detail (after)
Damian was asked to come in and provide an assessment.  Damian’s review found that the application and materials used that were not conducive to snow load factors within this region.  In addition, the fallen system had been improperly installed for the type of roofing system, resulting in the system failing after last year’s winter.    
The completed photos are of Damian Petry Gutter Solutions workmanship.  We completed a custom fascia buildout that was designed for the type of structure and roofing, and then installed a maintenance free gutter system which carries a lifetime performance warranty.  Why does Damian Petry carry such a warranty?  Living in a region with high snow loads, Damian continually researches for the best products and application methods testing them on his barn.  These tests have proven to him personally the products and methods of installation withstand our New England weather and ultimately on our customers’ homes and businesses too.
