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.

The North Charleston All-stars defeated Hanahan, 4-1, to clinch the 2021 S.C. Dixie Softball Ponytails (ages 11-12) District 6 championship on June 18.
All-star teams representing Moncks Corner, Goose Creek, Hanahan and North Charleston competed in the district tournament June 14-18 at the Wescott Park ball fields. North Charleston advanced to the final of the double elimination tournament undefeated. After losing on opening day, Hanahan battled back by defeating Moncks Corner on the second day and Goose Creek the third to advance to the final.
“We faced great competition, but we just played lights out,” North Charleston manager Joe Brinson said. “I’m so proud of these girls. In the first game against Hanahan we were up and down until we tied it up and then in the last inning we came through strong with a couple of hits to score the winning run.”
In the title game, Hanahan went up by a run in the top of the first inning. North Charleston answered in the bottom of the frame with three straight hits off the bats of Lennea Morlando, Morgan Carter and Lily Brinson to bring Morlando home, and an RBI single from Kamryn Wickersham that plated Carter.
After her team gained the 2-1 lead, Brinson found her grove in the circle and North Charleston played strong defense the remaining innings.
North Charleston added a run in the second. Alyssa Owens received a base on balls and then scored off a hit by Elizabeth Martray. The final run came in the fourth when Kamari Davis stole home for the 4-1 North Charleston lead.
Ja’Niyah Ray, Ava Harkleroad, Kalynn Butler and Kylie Leon-Jennings are the other members of the District 6 championship team. Chris Carter and Tim Harkleroad are the team’s assistant coaches.
The all-stars advance to the Ponytails State Tournament next month in Johnsonville. Joe Brinson is hoping pitching depth will give them an edge there.
“We have several pitchers this year, which is great,” he said. “We can just let a girl take it and see how far she can go knowing if we need it we have someone else who can step up and finish.”
Wescott Park is also hosting this summer’s Dixie Youth Baseball AAA Minors (9-10) tournament June 17-22. The tournament features teams from North Charleston, Summerville, Moncks Corner, Hanahan, Goose Creek, St. Andrews and Mount Pleasant.
Editorial: Sea level rise, growing population put groundwater at risk. SC must prepare.

It’s an established fact that rising sea levels will affect the supply of fresh groundwater along the South Carolina coast — it already has, especially in some shallower, private wells east of U.S. Highway 17.What’s less clear is how close the state is to a dangerous tipping point, where many of its underground aquifers — empty spaces and cracks deep in the soil and above impermeable layers of rock — will become so tainted with intruding salt that they no longer can serve as sources of drinking water with...
It’s an established fact that rising sea levels will affect the supply of fresh groundwater along the South Carolina coast — it already has, especially in some shallower, private wells east of U.S. Highway 17.
What’s less clear is how close the state is to a dangerous tipping point, where many of its underground aquifers — empty spaces and cracks deep in the soil and above impermeable layers of rock — will become so tainted with intruding salt that they no longer can serve as sources of drinking water without expensive treatment.
As Chloe Johnson reports today, utilities on and around Hilton Head Island already are grappling with the intrusion of salt into their aquifer, and one has taken the novel step of injecting a few hundred million gallons of fresh water from the Savannah River into the ground to help meet its peak demands. Combatting the problem has required utilities in Beaufort County to make other expensive, long-term plans beyond pumping in river water. Some have drilled ever deeper into the Middle Floridan aquifer, whose water is lightly salty and needs filtering through a reverse osmosis plant. One has even sunk a costly well almost 4,000 feet into a 65-million-year-old underground layer to shoot 118-degree water to the surface.
Charleston is not immune from the growing threat to our aquifers.
It’s true that our region currently gets most of its drinking water from the surface, including reservoirs fed by freshwater rivers flowing toward the coast. But Mount Pleasant and a few smaller beach communities have wells from which they draw water from the Middendorf Aquifer. When those wells prove problematic, they have to buy more water from the Charleston Water System, which currently uses only about two-thirds of the 115 million gallons a day its Hanahan Treatment Plant can produce.
“Fortunately, we have ample capacity right now, though we continue to monitor that very closely,” Kin Hill, the water system CEO, said. Still, “we have to stay a decade or so ahead of the demand. You can’t be caught short when Mother Nature delivers something to you.”
Get a weekly recap of South Carolina opinion and analysis from The Post and Courier in your inbox on Monday evenings.
Mount Pleasant is appropriately concerned enough about the situation that it engaged in a high-stakes battle with state regulators and Google over the company’s request to pump up to 549 million gallons of water per year from an aquifer to cool the servers at its Berkeley County data center.
The agency in charge of regulating South Carolina’s groundwater supplies, the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control, has had a study in the works on how ocean salt will continue to permeate underground supplies in Beaufort County, including a mathematical model that would predict how much salt intrusion would occur with different levels of rising seas. It’s expected to release a paper soon that projects salt migration in the coming decades, though no release date is set. We urge the agency to finish its review and make it public soon. There’s little time to waste, especially given the long lead times utilities need to plan, finance and build.
The strain on coastal aquifers comes from more than the salt and rising seas; the coastal population boom also puts more demands on withdrawing water. If too much is taken out, a utility can create a so-called “cone of depression,” or lower groundwater level, that poses a different type of problem. Fortunately, Beaufort utility managers have taken commonsense steps to reduce demand, including using treated wastewater to irrigate golf courses. But coastal utilities must continue to press for water conservation as a key piece in solving this puzzle — and all of us need to start giving more thought to how we use this precious resource.
The problem is going to become more challenging, especially with seas projected to rise by 1-4 feet by the end of the century. It’s something that eventually will affect us all, yet as hydrogeologist Chris Foldesi told Ms. Johnson: “I rarely hear folks talking about (sea level rise) in terms of water withdrawal planning and those types of things.”
The sooner we understand and make better plans for those effects, the less chance we will leave future generations high and dry — or too salty.

Leaders break ground on new 53-acre park in Hanahan
HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – A new multi-use park is being constructed in Hanahan. It comes after more than 75% of voters approved a bond referendum for the project back in November.The brand new 53-acre park is located next to Bowen’s Corner Elementary and will serve several purposes in the Hanahan community.“We are just so excited about this new park,” said Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater. “When the federal government partnered with us and donated the land, it had to be used for parks and rec.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – A new multi-use park is being constructed in Hanahan. It comes after more than 75% of voters approved a bond referendum for the project back in November.
The brand new 53-acre park is located next to Bowen’s Corner Elementary and will serve several purposes in the Hanahan community.
“We are just so excited about this new park,” said Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater. “When the federal government partnered with us and donated the land, it had to be used for parks and rec. It was exactly what the city of Hanahan needed.”
The last time Hanahan opened new ballfields there were only 13,700 people in the town. Now, about 29,000 call Hanahan home.
“There will be tennis courts, an artificial turf field, ballfields, a dog park, fishing pond, picnic spaces – you name it,” said Mayor Rainwater. “Everything that you would love to see in a park will be here.”
The project will cost more than $11 million. The Berkeley County School District agreed to pay nearly $1 million for artificial turf on a field so that it could be used as a practice field.
“We will partner with them to make sure they now have the things they need to play their sports,” the mayor said.
Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb said Hanahan has been working on the project for some time, even during the full ten years he was town administrator.
“It’s critical because it’s a quality-of-life project,” he said. “If you’re going to be a vibrant city, a vibrant community, people are looking for parks and recreation- do you want to draw in young families, do you want to be able to keep the families that you’ve drawn in?”
Bryce Florie grew up in Hanahan and has coached kids in the area, He said this is a great project.
“Just the way the community has grown and the need for it- it’s so important and the way the city came together… it’s a good place for everyone,” he said.
Mayor Rainwater hopes to have the park finished a year from now. The park has not yet been named.
