Gutter Services in Centerville, Ohio
If you live in or near Centerville, Ohio, you’ll need the best gutter system installed. When installed by a reputable contractor, all water and small debris should be directed towards the downspouts.

- The attraction of mosquitoes and other unwanted insects
All of these problems can be easily avoided when you hire an experienced roofing contractor in Centerville, Ohio such as Van Martin Roofing.
Types of Gutters
Here at Van Martin, we offer several different types of systems. Each comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages so that they can fit your home’s needs.
- Vinyl, Steel, and Aluminum gutters are affordable, easy to install, and easy to perform maintenance on. Due to this, they are the most common system amongst homeowners in the United States. However, vinyl gutters are a bit more prone to cracking than aluminum systems.
- Galvanized Steel and Copper gutters are known for their extreme durability and curb appeal. However, copper and steel gutters are a bit more expensive when compared to other materials.
- Wood gutters are fairly unique in the roofing industry. They are mostly used for older, historic homes so that they can match the architecture and appearance of the home.
It cannot be understated just how important it is to routinely check your system. It’s recommended to check and clean your system when necessary two times a year; once in the fall and once in the spring. The best way to avoid this time-consuming maintenance is with a gutter guard system.
It should be noted that gutter guards, also known as gutter covers, are a great way to prevent most issues with your system. Essentially, all types of gutter guards utilize a stainless steel micro-mesh screen to cover the troughs. When installed, you most likely won’t have to worry about blockages or clogging for the foreseeable future.
