Location: Barrington Hills, IL
Renovations: Copper Half-Round Gutters
A Barrington Hills resident was frustrated to learn that his home’s original gutters were improperly installed. Even worse, there were locations on the exterior where there were no gutters at all! Insufficient drainage caused the water to flow to all the wrong places. The result? Wood rot on the home’s exterior.
The homeowner met with a member of the LeafCo Gutters team who walked him through the property, identified all of the damage, and shared ideas about how to best tackle the problem. We followed up the meeting with a thorough gutter installation proposal including an outline of our plan, photos, and drawings. The Barrington Hills resident was impressed with our attention to detail and our reasonable estimate and chose LeafCo to complete the project.
A classic look and functional design with new copper gutters
Following our meeting, the client chose to replace his existing gutters with elegant copper half-round gutters. In addition to being functional and durable, copper gutters boost homes’ curb appeal and last for decades. To address the drainage problems, we reconfigured the new gutters and downspouts to provide better water distribution. We also reinforced all of the home’s fascia with Boral to spare the homeowner the headache of future water damage.
During the renovation, our gutter installation team encountered some specific challenges, such as significant delays due to inclement weather. To ensure the homeowner knew exactly what to expect, we stayed in constant communication with him through emails and texts, keeping him updated on the timeline. As a result, he was patient and understanding.
We also faced difficulties with configuring the gutters to avoid water spillage onto the home’s walkways. Ultimately, our expert crew was able to complete the project promptly and fulfill the client’s wish list.
A complete home transformation
The client was “blown away” by LeafCo’s professionalism and responsive service. The completed project completely transformed the older home, providing a more modern exterior that the homeowner is proud of.
