Foundation Damage

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.

Wood-Damage.jpg

Wood Damage

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.

Landscaping-Damage

Landscaping Damage

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.

Gutter Damage

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 Charlotte for years. With a fully trained team of gutter professionals on staff, we have the experience and resources to clean your gutters effectively and efficiently.

Common Signs of Clogged Gutters

One of the most common questions we get at The Gutter Gorilla centers around when homeowners need gutter cleaning in Charlotte, NC. The answer is nuanced, but generally speaking, your gutters need to be cleaned twice a year or whenever they become clogged. Unfortunately, it’s not exactly easy for the average homeowner to climb up on a ladder, get on their roof, and look to see if their gutters are full of debris.

Luckily, there are some common signs that you can look out for to save yourself from costly repairs:

Sagging-Gutters-1

Sagging Gutters

When debris like pine needles and leaves begin to build up in your gutters, the increased weight can cause your gutters to bend and sag. When this happens, your gutters can’t do their job of directing water away from your home. If your gutters appear to be sagging, chances are they are clogged.

Birds-and-Pests-2.png

Birds and Pests

Animals like birds find gutters a very appealing place to make a nest. If you notice birds or other critters scurrying around in your gutters, it can be a tell-tale sign that your gutters are clogged with nest-making materials.

Stains-on-Your-Siding-1

Stains on Your Siding

If you see stains on your siding, there is a good chance that your gutters are clogged, and standing water is overflowing onto your siding. This overflow of water can damage the fascia boards behind your gutters and can also affect your roof’s shingles.

Plant-Life-1

Plant Life

It might sound far-fetched, but if your gutters have enough dirt and debris buildup, seeds within that dirt can sprout, causing a garden to grow in your gutters. If you notice signs of plant growth in your gutters, they are most likely clogged and need to be cleaned ASAP.

In today’s fast-paced world, we understand that your time is precious. If you believe your gutters are clogged but don’t have the time to check, we would be happy to travel to your home for an initial gutter inspection.

During your inspection, our team will check your gutters for clogs and debris. While we are inspecting your gutters for clogs, we will also keep an eye out for signs of wear and tear and other issues that might cause damage to your home. When we’re done, we will go over what we found and provide you with a cost-effective solution for any problems that arise. That way, you can spend more time focusing on your family and your life and less time worrying about fixing your gutters by yourself.

Social worker says pandemic made her realize stress wasn't worth it, so her side hustle became her career

After 16 years as a social worker, Rosy Crumpton saw an opportunity to take a chance. She says it was the best decision she's ever made.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The so-called "Great Resignation" is underway, and for many people, that means turning their side hustles into full-time jobs as they find new ways to make ends meet.

Rosy Crumpton has spent her career helping others. After 16 years in the health care field as a social worker, she's taking on a new venture, working as an integrative health coach.

"People I work with are looking to modify eating habits and exercise, but they're also looking to manage stress, reduce anxiety, go to doctor visit less frequently and take less medication," Crumpton said.

During the pandemic, Crumpton realized she was a little stressed herself, and the website for her business, Sophrosyne Wellness, was blowing up without any marketing.

"Amidst COVID, I began to get his on my website and emails and messages," she said. "This let me know there was a need."

WCNC Charlotte is always asking "where's the money?" If you need help, reach out to the Defenders team by emailing money@wcnc.com.

That's when she decided it was time to go out on a limb and take a chance.

"I was doing my full-time job and then coaching in the evening," Crumpton said. "I did that for a year, and then last month I said, you know what? This is where my heart is, this is where my passion is. Let me take the leap."

She joined the millions of people across the U.S. quitting their jobs for a new beginning. According to a report from CNBC, 4.4 million people quit in September, and the "Great Resignation" shows no signs of slowing down.

"It was a very difficult decision because it's a field that has been stable, my bosses are wonderful people, and then to my work family — 16 years invested, stable job, stable income — it was a tough decision to make but one that felt good," she said.

It's only been a few weeks but Crumpton is convinced the decision was a good move.

"I am inspired by the people I work with," Crumpton said. "It makes my heart happy."

Charlotte's Black Friday shoppers queue up at outlets, stores, and more

Even with retailers offering weeklong specials online, Charlotte shoppers still braced the crowds Friday at physical store locations.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Shoppers in Charlotte woke up early on Black Friday searching for some good deals this year.

The doors at Best Buy opened up at 5 a.m. Friday morning and people were lined up, though the line was dramatically shorter than previous years when the sidewalk has been lined with tents. With inventory scarcities for computers, video game consoles, and more, combined with deals through online storefronts, shoppers queued up outside the Best Buy in Charlotte's Steele Creek numbered only in the dozens.

The first person in line, Usha Kami, said she got in line at 3:30 a.m., only an hour and a half before doors opened.

"I was expecting a long line. Like a really long line," Kami said. "But this is not that bad."

Scott Luczywo, a long-time Black Friday shopper, said it's become a tradition to get out early on Black Friday to score some deals, but the crowds have been smaller this year and last year.

"Last year wasn't too bonkers either so I kind of thought we might be the only one or two," Luczywo said. "But so, I guess the 10 or so that are in front of me, I guess that was kind of my expectation."

By the early afternoon hours, WCNC Charlotte's found more shoppers lined up at the Charlotte Premium Outlets.

— Shamarria Morrison (@SMorrisonTV) November 26, 2021

The National Retail Federation estimates 64% of people will likely shop in stores this Black Friday, which is up from 51% last year. The federation says more people started shopping earlier this year than they usually do.

"I think everyone's just doing online, especially after COVID," Luczywo said. "Everyone just got so used to doing everything online. I think people are like, 'Well, I did my Christmas shopping three months ago with Amazon, and I'll keep doing it.'"

Like many stores, Best Buy changed up the way it does Black Friday, offering deals in the last week both in-store and online.

Several stores are offering multiple options for shoppers to get their items, including buying online with in-store pick-up or curbside pick-up.

Shoppers filled lines all day at Charlotte Premium Outlets. Parking was scarce and lined snaked outside the door for most stores.

Kathy Bradford spent time with her family hunting for a deal.

Every year, she and the family go out shopping. This year they landed at the Charlotte Premium Outlets. Bradford said they had their eyes on Vera Bradley, Levi's, and Nike among other stores.

The volume of the shoppers felt pre-pandemic Friday -- with the exception of the mask -- and talks of supply chain issues didn’t stop people from coming out.

Bradford found everything she needed for Black Friday, except a new car.

“I’ve had a deposit on a car since labor day weekend they keep saying it’s coming," Bradford said. "It will be next month, next month. We’re waiting on a chip."

For now, she’s satisfied with her bags from Friday.

Meanwhile, in South End Charlotte, small businesses like OMJ Clothing are preparing for small business Saturday.

The men’s clothing store opened in 2020.

“It’s great for us the increased food traffic, the sales, even the eyeballs that are maybe just discovering us for the first time," Bradley Rhyne, co-owner of OMJ Clothing, said.

Tomorrow he’s hoping the square will be full of people discovering his and other small businesses for the first or second time.

“It’s a great day for us and any small business that’s participating," Rhyne said.

It's especially important after slow sales due to the pandemic.

Fifth Third Bank is sponsoring a small business Saturday event, including shopping with local vendors at the South End Market from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Across the street on Camden Road, around 80 local vendors will line the streets from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition to the shops to support, attendees can hear live music at the Groove Ailment from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Santa will also be at Lilbelle Clothing from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

City of Charlotte and Foundation For The Carolinas Announce 18-Member Arts and Culture Advisory Board

? CHARLOTTE, N.C. (November 24, 2021) – The City of Charlotte and Foundation For The Carolinas on Wednesday announced the appointment of the 18 members who will serve on the city’s Arts and Culture Advisory Board.

?The Arts and Culture Advisory Board will work with Priya Sircar, the city’s Arts and Culture Officer, to develop a comprehensive arts and culture plan, allocate approximately $4.4 million in remaining funds from the 2022 fiscal year to support arts, culture, and artists, and $12 million each in the 2023 and 2024 fiscal years.

?“This group of passionate Charlotteans from across the city’s arts, cultural, education and business sectors is uniting in service to this community through the inaugural Arts and Culture Advisory Board,” Sircar said. “I look forward to working with them and with Charlotte residents to shape an inclusive and thriving future for Charlotte arts and culture, together.”

?The 18-member advisory board is made up of nine members appointed by the private sector and nine members appointed by the City of Charlotte.

?Of the nine public sector appointees, the Mayor appoints three members while the City Council appoints six. The Mayor also selects the chairperson from among the 18 members of the advisory board.

?Of the nine private sector appointees, eight are selected by Foundation For The Carolinas, while the Arts & Science Council appoints one member. All nine are approved by the Foundation’s board.

?Each board member will serve a three-year term.

?“Today’s announcement of the appointment of the Infusion Fund’s citizen-led grantmaking board marks the end of the beginning,” said Foundation For The Carolinas President and CEO Michael Marsicano. “Alongside our new Arts and Culture Officer, Priya Sircar, the nine appointees from Mayor Vi Lyles and the Charlotte City Council – and the nine community appointees approved by the Foundation’s board – may be one of the most diverse grantmaking boards ever assembled in Charlotte, to its credit. Over the next three years, the board’s work will transform our cultural landscape and have a profound impact on our entire community.”

?In January of this year, Mayor Lyles created an ad-hoc committee of City Council members with the task of developing a policy for arts and culture. The committee met on February 8 to discuss how to refocus arts and culture resources to raise Charlotte’s profile as a destination city and to address community challenges such as social justice, education, workforce development, and equitable access to opportunity.

?The Arts and Culture Advisory Board will hold its first meeting in December.

'There may be a little more panic than what's necessary at this time' | NC infectious disease expert explains reason behind omicron response

President Joe Biden said that it is inevitable that this variant will make it to the United States, so anyone who isn’t vaccinated should do so immediately.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — New travel restrictions from Africa are now in place because of the new COVID-19 variant omicron. The White House is banning foreign travelers coming from South Africa, and seven other surrounding African countries.

According to the World Health Organization, South African officials followed proper protocol when reporting the new strain and they were fast to act, but it has still spread to Europe and Canada.

While health experts say it’ll be about two weeks until there are more definitive answers about this strain, it already appears to be more contagious with more mutations than other variants.

“Omicron really pulled something over on us," Christopher Ohl, an infectious disease expert with Atrium Health, said.

Ohl said the new variant became so concerning because of how it mutated.

“The way viruses usually change and evolve over time is one or two mutations at a time," Ohl said.

Ohl said he couldn't put a specific number to it, but that the delta variant had around 10 to 12 mutations. He said omicron has over 30.

“I don’t think anyone really would’ve predicted that the SARS-COVID-2 virus could pop so many mutations in one particular strain," Ohl said.

Addressing the nation Monday, President Joe Biden said that it is inevitable that this variant will make it to the United States, so anyone who isn’t vaccinated should do so immediately.

Biden said the travel restrictions were imposed so Americans could prepare.

“To give us time to get people to get protection, to be vaccinated and get the booster, that’s the reason for it," Biden said.

While scientists believe omicron may be more contagious, Ohl said it's still too early to know how severely it will impact people.

“There may be a little more panic than what's necessary at this time,” Ohl said.

Ohl said very preliminary information does indicate those who are vaccinated may not get the worst of the symptoms.

“The people hospitalized with omicron in South Africa so far seem to be mostly unvaccinated people, which is a little encouraging," Ohl said.

Ohl said he believes vaccinated people should still be able to gather for the holidays, so long as they follow proper COVID-19 precautions and get a booster when eligible.

“When you get boosted, you increase the number and you increase the breadth of the antibodies that you have," Ohl said.

Other key takeaways from the president is that he does not believe there will be a need for a lockdowns, and doesn’t anticipate requiring testing or proof of vaccination for domestic flights. The president said he expects to release their strategy outlining how they plan to fight COVID-19 this winter this Thursday.

When asked if the country's new normal will be that every new concerning strain leads to similar travel restrictions. His answer was no, and that he believes our new normal will be one where more people choose to get vaccinated, preventing the spread of the disease.
