Help Prepare for Late-Winter and Early-Spring Rains
To date, our weather in Missouri and Kansas is shaping up to be a fair bit different from last year. As a result of the mild weather the trees held their leaves for much longer than usual. This meant that many people were cleaning up a yard full of leaves as late as December and mid-January. Thankfully, there were a number of beautiful days to make the task a little more pleasing.
Because of the late-falling leaves, sticks and seeds, there is bound to be a lot of organic debris built up in the gutters of your home. For this reason, it’s a good time to have the gutters cleaned before late-winter and early spring precipitation begins to fall. Whether you clean your gutters or have someone else do the work, use the gutter cleaning exercise as a good time to assess the condition of your guttering. Leaks in guttering can cause water to overflow and damage the walls and structure in your basement and home.
Continental Siding, a provider of quality vinyl and polymer siding since 1982, also offers seamless guttering and gutter covers to homeowners in Kansas and Missouri. Just as it sounds, seamless guttering eliminates the seams that can be the cause of leaks. Our gutter installation experts can also estimate the right size of guttering your home needs to create a continuous flow of water away from the home.

Gutter Shield Gutter Covers
For additional protection, Continental Siding also offers Gutter Shield gutter protectors. Based on the scientific principle of liquid adhesion, Gutter Shield uses the natural adhesion of water to glass. In this case, the water flows down the roof over a ribbed panel into a horizontal opening. The opening is designed to handle up to 22 inches of water per hour but is small enough to keep nests, birds and animals from taking up residence. The covers will also protect the gutters from the weight-related damaged caused by snow and ice.
Gutter Shield installs over existing gutters and is available in a range of 12 colors to match your existing roof. The gutter covering system carries a lifetime guarantee for the life of the home and it is transferable to a new owner upon the sale of the home.
