Storm Drainage System

Having the right type of storm drainage system is crucial to preserving the foundation of your home. Proper storm drainage protects your home from soil erosion, basement flooding, water stains and paint damage. It also helps to prevent mold and mildew growth. 

There are many options when it comes to your storm drainage system. There are also many types of material, shapes and sizes available. This is why it is important to have an expert roofing company that can educate you on the right kind of drainage system for your home. 

At Excel, our roofing experts care about protecting your home just as much as you do. This is why we make sure that our water systems always drain away from your home, our downspouts always extend at least 4 feet away from your home and our underground drains always direct water away from your home. This prevents water drainage from causing issues like soil erosion, basement flooding and much more. 


Gutter Materials

There are many available options when it comes to gutter material, shapes and sizes.  The 4 main choices when it comes to gutter material are; aluminum, copper, steel and vinyl/ plastic.

Aluminum gutters are the most commonly used type of gutters. Aluminum is corrosion resistant, lightweight and easy to work with. It is also less expensive than many of its alternatives.

Copper gutters are much more expensive than aluminum gutters. However they are slightly stronger than aluminum gutters, don’t need to be painted and don’t mildew like painted gutters. 

Steel gutters are stronger but will rust. These types of gutters should also be inspected frequently to prevent clogging and premature rusting.

Plastic gutters can be easily broken.  Excel Roofing does not recommend plastic gutters nor do we install plastic gutters, as they typically fail.

Both aluminum and steel gutters can be fabricated on site.  

Excel Roofing recommends seamless aluminum gutters over steel because they hold up well, melt the snow and ice faster than steel and will never rust.


Excel Roofing Seamless Rain Gutter Services

Excel Roofing provides Denver’s best rain gutter installation, replacement and gutter cleaning services. Clogged, leaking, and improperly draining gutters can cause damage to your home and its foundation.

Overflowing gutters and downspouts can cause your basement to flood. When a basement floods because of outside water, insurance typically will not cover this disaster.

Excel Roofing installs seamless 5 & 6 inch rain gutters. Our seamless gutter machine creates custom seamless gutters, specifically for your home, at your home!

Why seamless gutters? Fewer seams mean fewer leak and failure points.

Clogged Gutters

heavily clogged gutter

Plant material such as seeds, cones, twigs and leaves can build up over time and lead to clogs in your drainage system. Buildup of these materials can also lead to animals like rodents and wasps nesting in your gutters. Buildup can also prevent water from moving through, and the added weight can lead to warped or sagging gutters. Winter can also bring challenges like snow buildup or ice dams, which can also lead to leaks, damages or warped gutters. 

Here are a few options to prevent storm drain backups:

  • Have your storm drainage system installed by an experienced expert like Excel Roofing
  • Have your gutters cleaned at least once a year (this is the best solution to gutter clutter)
  • Gutter covers are an option but they are very debatable because they can cause rain to overshoot the gutters and can contribute to clogging problems on top of gutters
  • Gutter screens are another option to protect you gutters, however these screens can become blocked and cause water to over shoot gutters
  • If you notice ice buildup, address it before it becomes worse

Leaking Gutters

Leaking gutters should receive immediate attention. If not fixed in a timely fashion, gutter leaks can lead to other issues with your home such as, damage to exterior walls, soil erosion, flooding, and damage to roofing material.

If you have leaking gutters here are some steps you should take to prevent further damage:

  • Get water 4 feet away from the house, otherwise you could have issues like basement flooding or damage to your foundation
  • Check to see if your downspouts are clogged (clogged downspouts can make it seem like you have a leak)
  • Check the slope of your gutters to make sure they aren’t sloped incorrectly, causing water to drain outside of them
  • Check to see if water is draining towards the downspouts
  • Check the corners of the gutters where they connect (sometimes gutters need to be resealed)
