Manage Rainwater and Mosquitoes with Plano Gutters

Situated in the Blackland Prairie region of northeast Texas, Plano has a rich agricultural history which is preserved and celebrated at the Heritage Farmstead Museum. The gently rolling landscape receives about 28 to 40 inches of rain annually, and fairly regularly throughout the year. The consistent rain patterns and fertile alkaline clay soils are what makes this area so ideal for raising crops and cattle ranching.

But people who live in densely suburban Plano need to manage their rainwater in ways that prevents damage to homes, reduces erosion, and most of all, does not contribute to mosquito infestations. Residents are encouraged to 'fight the bite' by reducing occurrences of standing water from their property.

Gutter Cleaning

Maintain Clean Gutters to Fight the Bite

Water that accumulates in clogged gutters provides the perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes. If your gutters are clogged or damaged, it's not just a mosquito hazard.

Fire Hazard
Did you know dried leaves in the gutters create a fire hazard for your home? Imagine if a stray ember from a patio grill lodges in a gutter clogged with dried debris. A fire can quickly spread to your roof and attic.

Structural Damage
Furthermore, standing water in the gutters rots shingles and flashing. Overflowing rainwater can even run down your inside walls, eroding windowsills, crown molding and door jambs. Not to mention inviting mildew and mold into your living spaces.

Soil Erosion
Rainwater that accumulates near the home's foundation, causes soil erosion as well as potential flooding of your basement or crawl space.

Gutter Tex offers a premium gutter cleaning service to keep your gutters clear, mosquito-free, and functioning optimally.

Why Seamless Gutters?

Gutters have existed since ancient times, and have undergone numerous upgrades through the centuries, like in the middle ages when downspouts were fashioned as gargoyles!

But today's modern seamless gutter represents the ultimate pinnacle of gutter system achievement! Seamless gutters have fewer joints which means a significant reduction in snags. We use rivets, not screws, which gives you a more secure fit and less chance of developing rust.

Our seamless gutters come in aluminum, galvalume or copper, and are available in 26 colors to complement any home!

Opulent Copper

Famous for the signature blue-green patina, copper is incredibly beautiful with a classic elegance that enhances traditional, colonial, mission revival, and modern homes.

Copper gutters come in a range of shapes and sizes including box-style, K-style and half-round to accommodate all architectural styles.

Durable and long-lived, copper is resistant to rust, corrosion and UV ray damage.

Yes, copper is more expensive, but its aesthetic appeal and durability make it a superior choice for discerning homeowners looking for the best gutter system available.

For inspiration, see some of our recent copper, and other, gutter projects.

Are Gutter Guards Helpful?

Adding gutter guards to your new or existing gutters is wise decision that keeps mosquitoes and other pests out of your gutters.

The guards cover your gutter tops, like a fine sieve, blocking leaves and other organic matter from entering your gutters. With gutter guards, your gutters won’t need to be cleaned out as frequently, and they'll last longer.

Can't Gutter Guards Be Bought Online or at a Store?

Yes, gutter guards are available to buy as a do-it-yourself project from home improvement stores. However, considerations such as the pitch of your roof, width and depth of your gutters, and the number of trees around your property need to be taken into account when designing your gutter guard protection. Not to mention, you'll have to climb a ladder.

Our trained technician looks at all the factors that make your home unique and designs your system accordingly. We’ll happily answer your questions about the various gutter guard brands, and bring product samples for you to review.

Gutter Repairs

You don’t always need a new gutter system. But, at some stage, your gutter system may require repairs to operate optimally.

It can be difficult for a homeowner to spot minor gutter damage, especially looking up from the ground. And that's where our professional expertise and equipment comes in.

We offer carpentry when siding repair, exterior trim repair or installation is required. We also repair or replace worn or damaged hangers and attachments.

Rain Barrels

Another way to prevent standing water that attracts mosquitoes is to connect your downspout or rain chain to a rain barrel.

To fight the bite, it's important that rain barrels be covered to prevent mosquitoes from using standing water as a breeding ground.

During installation, the Gutter Tex crew modifies the downspout or installs a drainage adaptor to direct the flow of water from the gutter to the rain barrel.

Rain Chains

Water from the gutter follows the rain chain to a barrel or a bigger receptacle called a water butt. The rain also could gently cascade into a rain garden or a flower bed that absorbs the water.

As long as the water is moving, mosquitoes cannot use it for breeding.

Put one near a porch or window and enjoy the tinkling sounds while you relax watching the water flow from roof to ground.
