Roof Replacement & Repair
Gutters & Downspouts
It takes an experienced gutter technician to discover the issues your gutters are suffering and come up with the appropriate solutions. If you’re installing new gutters, it makes sense to think about installing gutter guards as well. Guards add cost to the job but eliminate many headaches over clogged, overflowing gutters that can damage your home.
Whether you have debris buildup, overflowing, dented, or undersized gutters, we offer top-tier gutter options for homeowners throughout Northeast Ohio. If soil erosion and foundation or basement leaks are a big concern around your property, you may wish to ask about downspout extensions for your gutters.
Which gutter material is right for your home?
Typically made with aluminum, K-style gutters are available in different sizes and can also be made from vinyl, copper, or steel. These gutters can be hard to clean but can hold more water than rounded gutters and last longer.
Homeowners use half-round gutters to add a touch of style to the exterior of their home. Half-round gutters come in all metals, including copper, and their smoothness decreases corrosion and clogs. They are easy to clean but unable to hold a lot of water.
Seamless aluminum gutters
Seamless aluminum gutters are effective and affordable, making them a top choice among homeowners. With no joints or seams, they don’t collect as much water or debris. They also won’t crack or split like vinyl, or rust like steel.
A more expensive option is copper gutters. They are durable, never rust, and don’t need to be painted. A major disadvantage of copper gutters is the cost and installation. They are harder to install and are more expensive than aluminum or steel options.
Why do I need gutter guards?
You can protect your home from all types of moisture and damage with quality gutter guards. Roof runoff that overflows clogged gutters can cause basement flooding, damaged siding, fascia boards, decks and patios, and water leaks in your living space. Clogged gutters will also cause wood siding, sheathing, and trim to rot.
Installing gutter guards is a one-time upgrade that will protect your home from all kinds of moisture damage. We offer various options for gutter guards to help you avoid costly repairs in the future.
Chimney Repair Services
Our experts at Bill Jackson Roofing have experience in masonry repair and restoration to help maintain your home. We offer affordable and high-quality chimney repairs and inspections to ensure your home is in great shape.
The toughest-built chimneys can deteriorate over time and detract from the beauty and value of your home. From cracked masonry, leaks, blocked chimney caps, and poorly fitted dampers, our professionals can handle any chimney problem and find the best solution for your home.
Over time, your chimney experiences water leakage from the porous brick and mortar it is built with. Water leaks in your chimney can cause rusted damper and firebox assemblies, rotted wood, water stains on walls and ceiling, and more. We can waterproof your chimney with a high-quality waterproofing agent. It allows the moisture inside the chimney to escape while preventing water from getting in from the outside. You can protect the beauty and life of your chimney while saving yourself money and hassle in the future.
Crown Repair & Replacement
Your chimney crown acts as a roof to your chimney structure, protecting against deterioration or damage from weather. If there are cracks or voids in your chimney crown, this can allow water to seep inside your chimney. We can repair or rebuild the crown of your chimney to help prevent the need for costly water damage repairs. Our team can also build a new crown for your chimney with durable concrete that will direct water away from bricks and mortar and keep your chimney as dry as possible.
Repointing & Tuckpointing
If your chimney’s mortar is cracked or deteriorating, tuckpointing can help prevent further damage and restore your chimney’s original look. Tuckpointing involves scraping out the damaged mortar and replacing it with new mortar to restore the original condition of your chimney and match your existing mortar. If you have loose bricks or stones, or cracks in your mortar, our technicians will inspect your chimney and recommend the best solution to ensure it is functioning safely and looks beautiful.
If only a few bricks are cracked or breaking off in fragments, we can typically replace them. Our team has the expertise and skill to partially or completely tear down and rebuild your chimney. We do our best to use existing bricks that are still in good condition to match the chimney’s original appearance. When you hire us to restore or rebuild your chimney, you can be sure that we will complete all work per state and local building codes.
Do you have issues with smoke or drafts in your home? Allow us to perform a chimney inspection to determine if your fireplace damper needs replacing. By replacing your fireplace damper, you can increase your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. A damaged damper can let in water and moisture, which can cause cracks in the mortar and other serious problems. Our professionals can inspect your chimney damper and make sure it’s working as it should.
Caps & Cover Replacement
Having a chimney cap or chase cover is the most affordable preventive measure you can take to prevent water damage to your chimney. We can inspect the condition of your chimney cap or chase cover and install a new one if necessary. We have experience working with caps and covers of all types and sizes. Prevent leaves, other debris, and animals from getting into your chimney flue and causing expensive damage or hazardous blockages.
