Probably the least glamorous part of any home remodel, the gutters are one of the most important systems for your home. The gutters collect water that runs off the roof and diverts that water away from weak areas near the eaves and around the corners. A good gutter system also dumps water far enough away from the foundation of the home that water does not create a sinkhole and damage the landscaping or cause flooding issues in the basement. You will want to make sure that the gutter system is designed correctly and that all stages of the gutters have been replaced with new tracks. This is also a good time to consider a gutter guard to prevent small animals and other debris from blocking the water flow.
The roof is one of the largest areas of the home’s exterior, but it is something that is usually only noticed when something goes wrong. The roof is the most important safeguard that your home has from weather damage, and it must be given adequate care and attention. During the remodel do not skimp on the price of your roofing materials. You should use the best materials that you can afford, as these materials will be able to stand up to more extreme weather conditions and protect the roof and the interior of the home from damage that can occur when the roof fails. In Pennsylvania you also need to be on the look out for mold resistant shingles, or else you could end up with a roof that has large black mold spots.
