Flashing and Leaf Screens
Flashing Process and Information
Flashing, also known as drip cap and drip edge, is a piece of metal in the shape of an L. We select the appropriate size for your situation and install with gasket screws into the fascia.
Do you have drips/leaking behind your gutter?
Flashing acts as a water diverter that keeps the water going into the gutter and not down the fascia board which can peel the paint off, rot the board, and even make your gutter fall off eventually if enough rot is in the board.
Did you know?
Many houses are built without any type of flashing.
Leaf Screens Process and Information
Not a lot to say about the process here. It is a simple and effective system. We put the screens in the gutters and snap them into place.
We recommend screens for homes that have a lot of trees around. Keep in mind that while they are great at keeping leaves out, screens can still let in small debris. Just because you have screens doesn't mean you will never need them cleaned again.
Did you know?
Some properties do not benefit from screens. Areas with little foliage do not need screens.
We use a steel E-Z lock screen that has a powder coat finish to prevent rust!
