Pergola Gutter Supplies
What good are pergola roof gutters if they leak rainwater? If you don’t fix leakage, water will damage your home, peeling paint, cracking ceiling fascias and rotting roof structures.
Many homeowners discover that covered pergola areas are not guaranteed to be waterproof 100% all the time. How disappointing is it when you and your guests are forced to go indoors because of a heavy thunderstorm?
How can I prevent common pergola guttering problems?
One of the most common problems with pergolas today is that they can cause overflow issues at the point of attachment to the house. Incorrect fall of conventional gutters can cause water damage to your house. Because of inefficient pergola systems, the water during heavy rainfall is directed to the gutter right over or next to your backdoor.
Most pergola designs end up blocking the gutter when the roofing sheets are laid right over it. The thing is, gutters will end up full of leaves, dust and other debris over time. In areas that are susceptible to fires, a collection of broken down leaves and stems can pose serious dangers to you and your family. Mixed with rainwater and worse, bird droppings, cleaning becomes a stress-filled, headache-inducing task. If you fail to clean your gutters, water will definitely overflow and can cascade into the eaves.
