Gutter Repairs – Do I Need Them & How Can I Do Them for Cheap?

April 22nd, 2016

Gutter repairs, when done right, will prolong the life of your gutters. A well-maintained gutter can last decades, happily carrying water away from your home and foundation with little fuss.

But what about the opposite scenario? What about when gutters fail? When gutters fail to keep water away from your home, expensive foundation damage results. Water rots fascia, cracks foundation, warps siding, and heaves driveways. Water damage can also encourage mold growth, as well as provide an access point from termites and other pests. Terrible stuff, right?

So what better way to show your home your love than by repairing your rain gutters and downspouts? Below we offer our best (and simplest!) solutions to all the types of damage your gutters will sustain.

Gutter Guards and the Zika Virus

March 7th, 2016

Issues with the Zika virus are all over the news as of late. With multiple ways to transmit the disease and its impact on pregnant women, it’s an issue that has to be taken very seriously. There are a lot of parents at MasterShield and we’re very concerned over the side effects of what we’ve heard the press cover. It leads us to think of the importance of gutter guards in combating the Zika virus.

MasterShield Home Shows & Trade Shows for March 11-13, 2016!

March 7th, 2016

What is it that they say about the month of March? In like a something, out like a something, right? I’m having trouble remembering the ol’ adage, so let’s make up our own! The month of March is in like a clogged gutter, out like a MasterShield! Too nonsensical? Maybe. How about: in like a hesitant MasterShield customer, out like a loyal patron of the best gutter guard on the market? Hmmm, we’ll work on that.

On to the trade shows, then!

It’s the second weekend of March, and the Ides are creeping up on us. Beware the Ides, but more importantly, beware the damage incurred by unprotected gutters! Unprotected gutters lead to clogging, clogging leads to water too close to your home, and water too close to your home leads to real problems! Specifically: rotting fascia, cracking foundation, twisting siding, heaving driveways, and destroying basements. With so much to be worried about, MasterShield is the answer to your gutter protection needs. But don’t just take this blog post’s word for it! Let us show you what we mean at our MasterShield booth. Come on out to one of the lovely trade shows going on this weekend.

February 25th, 2016

February, like Winter itself, is drawing to a close. And as the coldest (and maybe dreariest) month packs its things and prepares a tearful goodbye, what better way to celebrate its passing than with a trade show? This weekend, February 26th through the 28th, enjoy two trade shows: one in New Jersey and one in Connecticut. Much apologies to our Philly folks – hope to see you again in March!

Unfortunately, it’s not the busiest of weekends, but it’s still a wonderful opportunity for you to put your building hat on and think about those home improvements and renovations you’d like to get done this season! So this weekend starting with Friday, February 26 and ending with Sunday, February 28, walk – don’t run, it’s icy! – to the nearest trade show or home show.
