Choosing The Right Color For Your Home’s Gutters 

May 20th, 2020 | 1 Comment »

Choosing The Right Color For Your Home's Gutters There are many different types of gutters to choose from, the ones that will be right for your home depend on your property’s specifics. However, one thing that many people overlook is the color of their gutters.

 

Here are a few things to consider before purchasing new gutters:

 

The Color Of Your Home 

Before you spend too much time thinking about it, first ask yourself if your gutters will even be visible. If they are on an area of your house that can’t be seen from the curb, you can choose just about any color. Of course, you may still want something that is appealing to you and your family.

 

Nearby Gutter Colors 

Next, you will want to consider the color of a few other areas of your house. Your gutters will be seen alongside your roof and exterior walls. You may also want to check with your Homeowners Association, to be sure there are no regulations on the specific color you choose.

 

Roofing Color

 In many cases, people choose either the same color as their roof or walls for their gutters. This allows the gutters to blend in and seamlessly match the rest of the home, which is ideal for anyone who doesn’t want them to be overly noticeable.

 

Accent Colors

Alternatively, you could choose a color that matches the trim around your windows or doors. You could even choose a color to match window shutters or some other aspect of your home’s exterior. This will make your gutters stand out more while still ensuring they match the overall aesthetics of your property. 

 

Choosing gutters doesn’t have to be a complicated process, but their color is just one of the many things you need to consider. Bell Seamless Gutters offers a wide range of colors for your gutters.

Since spring has begun, now is a great time to head outside to evaluate your home’s curb appeal. There are many ways to change your home’s exterior to improve the overall look and feel. Enhancing Your Home’s Curb Appeal

 

Here are a few ways to improve your home’s curb appeal: 

 

Change Your Mailbox

This is a simple and inexpensive improvement that can aid in improving your home’s curb appeal. You can swap out your old mailbox for a new one or improve your old one by giving it a new coat of paint. 

 

Plant a Tree/ Shrubs

Greenery can go a long way in improving your home’s curb appeal. It can also add value to your home. Try installing a few bushes or trees around the perimeter of your home. This will also help create privacy.  Evergreen foliage is a popular option because the bushes grow long and look great with most homes. 

 

Redesign Your Walkway

Whether you have a long walkway or just a few steps leading up to your front door, you can create a beautiful scenery for entering guests. Use landscape rocks to help create a more established walkway design. You can also add small plants around the perimeter and garden lights to illuminate your walkway during the night. 

 

Add Furniture

Outdoor furniture is another simple way to improve your home’s curb appeal. Be sure to check the measurements of your furniture and your front/back porch to ensure that it will fit. A small table and a couple of
chairs can help provide a place to relax and enjoy your home while getting some fresh air! 

Install New Gutters

Seamless VS Sectional Gutters

January 9th, 2020 | 1 Comment »

Choosing a gutter system for your home is a process, which takes time to ensure your home is protected.

There is a difference between sectional and seamless gutters which is important to consider.

Seamless vs sectional gutters

Seamless gutters have a continuous section that join at the corners and at the downspouts. Seamless gutters are the superior option when deciding on a gutter system for your home.

Sectional gutters are composed of individual pieces of material that are bonded together to form the gutter system. Each piece is attached to the other with a sealant, screws, or anchoring beams. This is a popular method and is originally how most gutter systems were installed. The seams in sectional gutter systems can pose a threat to your home. More seams allow more opportunity for rain, snow and other debris to seep through.

Why choose seamless?

Seamless gutters are the superior option when choosing a gutter system because of the continuity of the system.

  • Custom-fit- Because seamless gutters are don’t have a bunch of small pieces, they must be custom fit to your home. Every home is built differently so your gutters should be made to fit your home specifically.
  • Longer lasting- Sectional gutters are more prone to leaks and breakage because of the various seams. A seamless gutter system lasts longer because it is one solid piece connected to your home and there is less opportunity for water and debris to infiltrate.
  • Better design- Seamless gutters have a more aesthetically pleasing design when compared to sectional gutters. This is important to consider for your home’s appearance, value, and curb appeal.

Bell Seamless Gutters offers high-quality seamless gutters and gutter guards to homeowners throughout New Jersey. To learn more about all the gutter options we have available, feel free to give us a call or contact us online today!

 

Why Gutter Maintenance is So Important

December 31st, 2019 | No Comments »

As a homeowner, there are many different responsibilities that have to be taken care of in order to

maintain your home. One of the often-overlooked aspects

of your home is the gutters. You may not understand how important the gutter system is, but it plays a major role in the upkeep of your home. It is best to routinely clean your gutters 3-4 times a year or every time the seasons change.

 

Here are some of the potential dangers that can occur when the gutters are not properly maintained:

Sidewalk Hazards

If your gutters are not draining properly, this can cause flooding which can travel to your front yard and sidewalk. If this flooded water freezes it can become extremely dangerous.

Leaking Basement

With inadequately functioning gutters water builds up around the foundation that can cause leaks into your basement.

Foundation Cracking

If you have a leaky basement you have cracks in your foundation. This can become extremely dangerous in the winter due to frost heave. Water gets into the cracks that have already formed and then it freezes when cold enough. The frozen water will swell and expand, causing even more damage.

Washed out landscape

 An overflowing gutter system can ruin your landscaping, and garden by flooding.

Damaged driveways

Aside from the obvious annoyance of having to step out of your car directly into a large puddle, flooded driveways can become significantly damaging to your property. A flooded driveway can lead to mildew, mold, and root rot.

Bell Seamless Gutters provides quality gutters, maintenance services, and rainwater collection in New Jersey. Our skilled professionals can help with all of your gutter needs. Call us at 800-597-1616 or contact us online to learn more about having your home’s gutter system installed or

Prepare Gutters for Storms

Prepare Gutters for Storms

When word of a rain or thunderstorm is coming your way, it’s time to spring into action and take the necessary steps to protect your home. All homeowners know there’s a lot of work that goes into taking care of and keeping up a home, and the gutter system is no exception.

By being preventative and taking some precautionary measures to make sure your gutter system is in tip top shape before a storm, you are saving yourself time and money in the long run, avoiding preventable repairs. The key is making sure your gutter system is up to the challenge of what the storm may bring and keeping your home dry. Follow these easy steps to ensure your home stays dry during your next storm.

INSPECTION

It’s important to initially inspect your gutter system, including your gutter guards and downspout, to assess the condition of the system.

TIMING IS KEY

Timing between when you dust off the latter and when the storm is anticipated to arrive is key. Safety should strongly be taken into consideration when making this call. Ideally, you would time it out that it’s on the same day of the storm before it hits, but you need to balance not doing it too far in advance and too close to the storm. Remember, if it seems dangerous or you are unsure for any reason, it’s better to hold off.

TUNE UP TIME

As you inspect your gutter system, keep an eye out for any loose bolts or screws and tighten them as you go. The more secure your gutters are before the storm, the better suited they’ll be when it comes rolling through.

CLEAR ANY CLOGS

Clean your gutter system, including the downspout. Make sure you do a thorough check to ensure the system will work properly, free from any obstacles. To ensure the downspout is clear, spray a hose at a high pressure through the top and bottom. If there are any clogs, a plumber snake should do the trick. If you find any major issues during your inspection, it’s time to call in the professionals: a gutter repair specialist.
