Gutters and downspouts are important accessories to a home or business exterior. DNS Exterior Inc. works with Rollex brand rainware systems and offers a wide range of colors of durable rainware to complement your siding, soffit and fascia.
DNS Exterior uses industry-standard five-inch gutters for residential applications and six-inch commercial gutters for your needs. Proven to neither leak nor sag, these gutters stand up to the weight of leaves, debris, snow, ice, critters – you name it. They’re made of heavy-gauge aluminum with an acrylic finish baked-on, inside and out.
Sure, siding is the star of the show. But don’t overlook what soffit and fascia do for your property. They protect hard-to-reach areas where water and decay do damage. We use Rollex soffit and fascia systems, which are backed by a manufacturer’s non-prorated lifetime warranty.
DNS Exterior uses Alcoa brand gutter and downspout protection systems. It is hard to imagine the extensive damage that can be caused by something as delicate as a leaf. However, leaves can clog gutters and downspouts resulting in severe problems and expensive home repairs.
During the dry summer months, a leaf-clogged gutter could be a potential fire hazard as dried leaves are highly flammable. In damp warm temperatures, it can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes. In the fall and springtime, leaves can get caught in a gutter, blocking downspouts and causing water to overflow. This can lead to leakage or even worse, a major home disaster. When water is trapped, it can seep under the shingles, though the fascia or into the soffit, where it can cause serious damage to exterior walls, insulation and drywall. Water damage can also cause roof deterioration and ground erosion, which can be particularly dangerous situation as this affects the foundation of the house. When winter begins to set in, any leaves, twigs or pine needles that remain in the gutter begin to decay and form a clay-like substance within the downspouts. During the day, snow melts and runs down the roof into the gutter where, trapped by this dam of debris, it can freeze overnight causing a serious obstruction. The weight of certain blockages can cause the gutter to pull away from the house if it is not securely attached and can cause pooling next to the foundation.
