Renovating an Apartment Building: Tips

I had always wanted to be an entrepreneur, so when I saw a local apartment building up for sale at a great price, I decided make the investment. I am a manager by day, so I thought I was ready to be a great landlord. After I had trouble attracting new tenants, I decided to try investing in a few upgrades to see if I could attract more tenants with the added features. I hired a local contractor to work on my first project, which was a fitness room. I remembered that I always looked for buildings with them when I rented apartments! I then had some work done on the grounds and in the apartments themselves. The building is completely full now, so I realized it was a good investment. I decided to start a blog to share my renovating and construction tips with anyone who needs them!

Why You Need Seamless Rain Gutters

Rain gutters are one of the most important parts of your roofing system, because they keep rain away from your home, which could potentially cause water damage and rot. However, when it comes to rain gutters, there are many different styles to choose from. Seamless gutters are one type to choose from, which are cut to have less seams and areas of potential leakage. They are typically made from preformed composite metal, with a narrow trough. Here are some reasons to consider having seamless rain gutters installed.

No Leaking

One of the top reasons people choose seamless rain gutters is that you won't be dealing with leaking issues. If you walk around your property and notice small puddles of water on the ground due to water leaking through the different joints in your gutters, you can definitely benefit from seamless gutters. They have a more streamlined design and are cut to have less joints and fasteners. The joints should only be located where you have downspout or at corners, so the risk of leakage is considerably lower.

Less Maintenance Overall

With the streamlined design, fewer joints, and lack of leaking, maintenance is also going to be easier with seamless gutters. The joints make a big difference in how much maintenance is needed, because frequent joints tend to cause more leaves, twigs, and other debris that can cause them to become clogged. If they remain clogged without being cleaned out, it can lead to pests, birds, and damage to the gutters themselves from the added weight. All of this can be avoided when you have seamless rain gutters. 

Flawless Fit

When you get seamless rain gutters, you are not simply going to your hardware store and purchasing the different pieces individually. These are custom-made and cut to fit your roof exactly. They will be cut "seamlessly" so that they fit better than gutters you are simply trying to make work. They also require professional installation, so you know you will have the best finished product possible. It may be a little more expensive with the professional cutting and installation, but there is a better return on your investment since everything is done right the first time.

Excellent Aesthetic Appeal

Seamless rain gutters also look more attractive attached to your roof, due to the straight and seamless design. There are many colors and materials to choose from so you get gutters that blend in well with the style of your home. They also have an enamel finish, so you don't need to repaint them unless you change your mind on the color.
