We treat every gutter project as a top priority. Attention to detail is the heart and soul of our business. We go far beyond providing simple gutter services, giving you incredible insight into your seamless gutters project. Your gutter installation will be handled by licensed and insured professionals. It all starts here, please begin below.
The primary role of your gutter system is to channel water off of your roof and direct it away from your home’s foundation. Gutter blockages can result in water running over the sides of your gutters. That water will eventually settle around your foundation. With time, pooling water will affect the reliability of your home’s structure, causing cracks, mold growth, and even collapse.
Your home’s gutter system is held up by fascia boards, which are typically made of wood. When your clogged gutters overflow with water, your fascia boards will begin to rot. On top of that, your fascia boards must hold the increased weight of your clogged gutters. The combination of rot and weight can cause your gutter system to fail, resulting in expensive repairs.
If you want to maintain the beauty of your landscaping, having clog-free gutters is essential. When your gutters can’t do their job, overflowing water will pour down the sides of your home. Eventually, this water will damage the trees, shrubs, and flower beds close to the base of your home.
When your gutters are full of leaves and other debris, rainwater, and other forms of precipitation have nowhere to go. This causes water to fill your gutters to the brim. Because each gallon of water weighs around eight pounds, this extra weight will cause your gutters to crack, bend, or even tear away from your roof. Your gutters are rendered completely useless at that point, and you’re looking at very expensive repairs.
If you don’t have the time and patience to commit to proper gutter cleaning, The Gutter Gorilla team is here to help. We have been cleaning gutters in Belmont for years.

The Tennessee Department of Education announced a central steering committee and 18 subcommittees have been established, representing the state’s stakeholder and student groups and geographic areas, to engage with the department and explore a student-centered investment strategy for the state’s education funding formula over the next several months.
Last Friday, Governor Lee announced a full review of the state’s funding formula for public education to focus on a student investment strategy that emphasizes all students rather than systems, empowers parents to engage in their child’s education and outcomes, ensures all students are prepared for postsecondary success, and reflects Tennesseans’ values.
“In the coming months, we will hear from Tennessee parents, teachers and community leaders as we pursue a student-focused approach to public education,” said Governor Lee.
“More than 500 Tennesseans have already stepped up to share their ideas, and we look forward to a statewide discussion about strengthening K-12 education and preparing Tennessee students for success in the classroom and beyond.”
Since Friday, over 500 Tennesseans have already submitted their interest in engaging in discussions and receiving updates related to a student-centered investment strategy. Members of the public will be engaged via a public survey to be released this fall and are encouraged to continue to submit their interest via this form.
"Our students are the future of Tennessee and now is the time to have a serious conversation about the ways in which we can strategically invest in them. I am thrilled by the number of Tennesseans who are interested in joining the conversation and explore the possibilities for a student-centered investment strategy,” said Commissioner Penny Schwinn. “It is essential that we include those who will be impacted most by these conversations and keep our students front and center as we explore a new funding strategy.”
The state’s engagement will include a central steering committee composed of policymakers from across the state and 18 subcommittees. Representing district and school leaders, higher education partners, elected officials, business leaders, families, education stakeholders and members of the public, the 18 subcommittees are:
• Student Engagement Subcommittee • Students with Disabilities and Gifted Students Subcommittee • English Learner Subcommittee • Economically Disadvantaged and Highly Mobile Students Subcommittee • Parent Choice and Voice Subcommittee • Teacher Advisory Subcommittee • Principal Advisory Subcommittee • School System Personnel Subcommittee • School System Leadership Subcommittee • Rural and Small District Subcommittee • Suburban Districts, Municipals, and Fast-Growing Communities Subcommittee • Urban District Subcommittee • Higher Education and Post-Secondary Readiness Subcommittee • Post-Secondary Readiness and the Business Community Subcommittee • Chambers of Commerce and Industry Subcommittee • Education Foundations Subcommittee • Regional Collectives and Advocacy Subcommittee • Fiscal Responsibility Subcommittee
The department will also have a committee of national experts, regional meetings of county commissioners and school board members, public engagement representatives, and an opportunity for public comment through a formal survey later in the fall.
The subcommittees will meet twice a month, either in person or virtually, for the next three months. All associated committee meeting materials, including recordings and minutes, will be posted here. Subcommittee members, compiled of national and state experts, will be released in the coming days and meetings and conversations will be focused on capturing the robust lenses of Tennesseans in creating a student-centered funding strategy.

Will new Belmont Chick-Fil-A serve up traffic jams?

BELMONT, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE)– It’s a neighborhood food fight.
A new Chick-Fil-A is approved to be built inside a Harris Teeter parking lot, across from South Point High School and adjacent to a nearby residential community. Some nearby homeowners worry it will be a recipe for traffic trouble.
“It can get quite busy from what I’ve seen,” said Emily Williams, who lives nearby.
It is unclear when construction will begin on the new fast-food chain, which will be located at the Belmont Town Center on South Point Road. Williams, and other residents, vented frustration on the city’s Facebook page.
“I love Chick-Fil-A. They’re very yummy, delicious,” said Williams. “Maybe just don’t put it right here. Not right here. Maybe somewhere else would be fine.”
Belmont has another Chick-Fil-A about two miles away. The restraint chain’s popularity often draws large lunchtime crowds and backs up traffic, in some cases, out to the road. Renderings on the city’s website show space for 102 diners inside, 24 outside, and 52 parking spots. City planning officials say a fast-food restaurant was included in a traffic impact study conducted in 2015.
“My wife and I are super excited about the Chick-Fil-A,” one man, driving by said. “I live a half-mile from here and I love the milkshakes.”
“Are you worried about the traffic?,” asked reporter Matt Grant.
“No, not worried about that,” the man said. “It’s only going to get worse around here anyway.”
Chick-Fil-A did not respond to a request for comment.
“Based on the site location and site requirements,” said Belmont City Planner Melissa Lockamy, “staff worked with the Chick-Fil-A design team to maximize drive-thru queueing on the property.”
It is unclear exactly how the city and restaurant plan to mitigate traffic concerns.
“Why not open a kebob house or something? Why not put something else that’s a little bit more exotic?,” asked Williams. “Something different. Something that Belmont doesn’t have yet. That, I think, would offer more variety and get people more excited than putting in just another Chick-Fil-A.”
“But, if Belmont is excited about having another Chick-Fil-A,” she added, “then, well, that’s Belmont.”
CaroMont Health Kicks Off Construction for New Hospital, Medical Campus in Belmont
This week, CaroMont Health marked the beginning of construction of a new hospital and medical campus in Belmont. Part of CaroMont Health’s commitment to invest more than $300 million in new and expanded facilities in and around Gaston County over the next three years, CaroMont Regional Medical Center-Belmont is scheduled to open in mid-2023.“We are building more than a hospital, more than a medical campus, we are building the future,” said Chris Peek, President and CEO of CaroMont Health. “In three short years,...
This week, CaroMont Health marked the beginning of construction of a new hospital and medical campus in Belmont. Part of CaroMont Health’s commitment to invest more than $300 million in new and expanded facilities in and around Gaston County over the next three years, CaroMont Regional Medical Center-Belmont is scheduled to open in mid-2023.
“We are building more than a hospital, more than a medical campus, we are building the future,” said Chris Peek, President and CEO of CaroMont Health. “In three short years, this will be the site of so much hope and promise – where new life is welcomed, where patients heal and where the next generation of healthcare professionals find their purpose.”
Located off Interstate 85 in Gaston County, the 28-acre medical campus will include a 66-bed hospital (54-acute care beds and 12 observation beds), 16-room emergency department, labor and delivery unit, operating rooms and surgical capabilities, and robust diagnostic testing and imaging services. Also planned is a medical office building and parking deck. Early estimates suggest the hospital alone could create as many as 150 new jobs in the region and see as many as 16,000 patients in the first year.
"With the insight and guidance of medical and clinical leadership, CaroMont Regional Medical Center-Belmont has been designed with an intense focus on the patient, both their care and their experience,” said Richard Blackburn, Vice President of Facilities and Support Services. “This medical campus, and the hospital that will anchor it, will extend our clinical network to better serve communities in the eastern part of Gaston County and continue to provide exceptional medical care to the region.”
In September 2020, CaroMont Health and Belmont Abbey College entered into a long-term partnership to allow CaroMont Health to build the new hospital and medical campus on land owned by the college and monastic community since the late 1800s. The proximity of CaroMont Regional Medical Center-Belmont to the college campus will offer educational opportunities for students in Belmont Abbey College’s health science programs.
“Belmont Abbey College exemplifies the true spirit of our community – one of progress, integrity, excellence and virtue – and shares many of our core values,” said Peek. “Much like healthcare, education has the unique ability to enrich and support not only the recipient, but all who surround them. A highly regarded institution like Belmont Abbey, focused on the advancement of others, strengthens our community. We are proud to be part of such a historic moment.”
Dr. Bill Thierfelder, President of Belmont Abbey College, echoed praise for the partnership.
“Bringing together two remarkable and storied institutions, the partnership between CaroMont Health, a leading healthcare provider, and Belmont Abbey College, a leading institution of higher education, is a game changer for the region and beyond. We are excited about the opportunity to collaborate with CaroMont Health to provide the highest levels of medical care and academic excellence,” said Dr. Thierfelder.
In May 2019, CaroMont Health announced plans to build the Belmont hospital, expand critical care services with construction of a four-floor tower at the main hospital in Gastonia, and complete several renovation and expansion projects in its medical group. The more than $300 million commitment was the largest in the history of Gaston County. All projects are aimed at expanding CaroMont Health’s clinical network to prepare for anticipated population growth across the region.
“CaroMont Regional Medical Center-Belmont will be home to medical excellence, but more importantly, it will help change and save lives in our community for years to come,” said Peek.

Construction will soon start on CaroMont Health's $196 million-plus hospital project in Belmont.
CaroMont Regional Medical Center-Belmont will have 54 acute-care beds, including 48 for telemetry and six for labor and delivery. There will also be 12 observation beds; a surgical section with two operating rooms, a C-section suite and an endo/bronchoscopy suite; a 16-room emergency department; and imaging services, said Trish Goble, senior director of patient care services in Belmont, at a recent roundtable discussion.
The hospital, near the intersection of N.C. Highway 273 and Interstate 85, is scheduled to open in July 2023. Crews are clearing the site, with construction planned to start this July, Goble said.
"The new hospital in Belmont is a reflection of CaroMont's unwavering commitment to the thousands of patients who trust the health system to care for them. We look forward to sharing final plans and beginning construction very soon," CaroMont said in a statement to the Charlotte Business Journal.
There will also be a medical office building for outpatient services including surgical, cardiology and women's care. Construction on that building is expected to start this summer, Goble said.
State regulators approved CaroMont's plans in early 2020. Later that year, it signed a lease with the Southern Benedictine Society of North Carolina to build the hospital on the site adjacent to Belmont Abbey College. CaroMont has agreed to work with Belmont Abbey to develop new programs.
Leaders have designed bachelor's degree programs for nursing and health information management. The college will soon launch a graduate-level program for health administration.
"Every day I walk over there to see a little bit more of the progress," Dr. Bill Thierfelder, president of Belmont Abbey, said at the roundtable discussion. "It's an amazing sight already, just to see the size of the property that's being cleared, and I can already envision the new hospital there."
CaroMont's proposed hospital is part of a larger, approximately $350 million investment into Gaston County over five years. The investment — which was announced in May 2019 — includes the Belmont facility, a new tower at its flagship CaroMont Regional Medical Center and medical buildings in Cramerton and Bessemer City.
Last fall, CaroMont broke ground on the 78-bed, four-story critical care tower in Gastonia. The 146,000-square-foot space will have 26 private intensive-care rooms, centralized nursing stations and other workspace on each floor. Three floors will be used immediately, with future plans to expand into the fourth one. The $90 million project is also scheduled to open in 2023.
