In Richardson Gutters are Essential for Stormwater Management

Concerns for Homeowners in Collin County

There are two major water-related matters to keep in mind about living in Richardson.

1. Green Infrastructure

An individual homeowner's green infrastructure is primarily comprised of a well-maintained seamless gutter system. The gutter system's key role is to prevent flooding and other damage caused by uncontrolled stormwater.

How Does It Work?

The gutter system collects rainwater from the roof and channels it through the gutters and downspouts. The water is diverted away from the home's foundation to other areas, like the yard, to be absorbed by plants and soil. This natural, green stormwater infrastructure approach protects the home, while also reducing erosion, filtering pollutants, and contributing to plant growth.

Gutter Tex helps you create a well-maintained gutter system as an essential part of your sustainable and resilient rainwater eco-system. And your family will enjoy having us set up a rainwater collection system to re-use water in delightful ways!

Water Conservation in Richardson

Richardson is well-planned city with popular urban conveniences like shopping and restaurants. And it also combines family-friendly neighborhoods with clean parks and natural green spaces. That's why it's become a magnet for young families who want to live a healthy and happy life.

North Texas experiences episodes of wet and dry periods. So water conservation and stormwater drainage are critical considerations for Richardson homeowners and rental property managers.

Property Manager Recommends!

As a commercial property manager, working with Gutter Tex is my go-to vendor all their services. I experience a quick and smooth transaction every time. With their online scheduling I can request work, receive an estimate, schedule, receive crew ETA's and pay all in one seamless transaction. I get same-day response / estimates and completion pictures when finished. If I need to speak to someone in the office they are friendly, helpful and quick to answer any questions I have. They handle the entire job from start to finish so I don't have to. I highly recommend!

2. Mosquitoes

Floodwater mosquitoes are bloodsuckers that leave painful, itchy bites on our arms and legs. And they also carry diseases in Texas, most notably, West Nile Virus. It's imperative to reduce all instances of standing water around your home. Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water and will use for breeding anything from a neglected swimming pool to a puddle in your driveway or even a little rainwater collected in a child's outdoor toy.

Most notoriously, mosquitoes use clogged gutters to generate infestations so severe you have to stay indoors from dusk to dawn, and cover up with long pants and sleeves when outdoors.

Our gutter cleaning technicians will get your gutters unobstructed and fully functional to discourage mosquitoes from breeding. Additionally, we offer gutter guards to protect your gutters from mosquitoes and debris.

Are Gutter Guards Helpful in Richardson?

Adding gutter guards to your new or existing gutters is no-brainer 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.

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!

Top-Shelf Copper Gutters

Famous for the signature blue-green patina, copper gutters are 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 absolute best gutter system available.

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

Richardson Gutter FAQs

How long can I expect my new gutters to last?

  • A seamless system (aluminum or galvanized) has an expected lifespan of about twenty years.
  • Copper systems last around fifty years.
  • Sectional gutters have much shorter life spans.

If your house has no gutters, or your system is reaching the end of its expected life, let's talk about new gutters.

Are seamless gutters expensive?

Installing quality gutters is a smart investment and well worth the cost.

Homeowner Stewardship: Promoting Positive Drainage

Homeowners have a critical role to play in Richardson's stormwater drainage system. The city's expectations are explained below.

Every upstream element of this system must be kept as free as possible from obstructions, in order to ensure that stormwater is conveyed away from homes and businesses – thus preventing potential property damage or loss of life. We encourage you to study this guide, and we thank you for doing your part.

Make sure gutters and pipes are directed away from your house – but first into vegetated or graveled areas for filtration before leaving your property. Consider a rain barrel or other method to catch roof runoff for later irrigation use.

Rainwater Collection Systems

Rain Barrels

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

The rain barrel collects water from your gutter downspout for re-use in gardens, potted plants, to fill a bird bath, wash your car or to rinse your hands.

To discourage mosquitoes, it's essential 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.

Rainwater collection barrels come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors to complement all tastes and functions.

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.

A rain chain reduces clogging. It's attached within the outlet that a downspout would otherwise occupy. Leaves, needles, and other debris just fall through the hole and to the ground.

They are beautiful décor on the outside of your home and look even more charming with water rushing through them.

Rain chains sound lovely when it rains, delivering a musical resonance a bit like wind chimes. So put one near a porch or window, and enjoy the tinkling sounds while you relax watching the water flow from roof to ground.

And not to worry, as long as the water is moving, mosquitoes cannot use it for breeding.

 

Rain Gardens

Rain gardens are becoming very popular in North Texas. Not to be confused with a pond or a wetland, a rain garden in Richardson will be dry most of the year, however, when we get a storm, the water from your gutters is diverted to an area of the yard that has been prepared to receive it.

Examples of cheerful, butterfly-attracting rain garden plants include: Flame Acanthus, Rock Rose, Coreopsis and Lantana. While the plants thrive with rainwater, the soil filters the water as an added bonus.

Q. But if there is standing water, doesn't that attract mosquitoes?
A. A rain garden is designed to only hold water for a few days after a storm. The properly-prepared ground basin, and suitable plants absorb the water quickly so it doesn't stay around long enough for mosquitoes to complete their breeding cycle.

Let us know and your Gutter Tex tech will add a downspout extension from the gutter to the rain garden.
