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 Huntersville 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.

This year marks the return of the festival after last year's installment was canceled due to COVID-19.
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — The Carolina Renaissance Festival is back for its 28th season.
“People are excited to come back to the renaissance festival,” Matt Siegel, one of the festival directors, told WCNC Charlotte.
Siegel said he was excited to see the turnout after having to cancel the festival last year.
“Attendance is right on par with the way it been in the past,” he said.
Siegel said there are noticeable differences though.
"The festival has implemented several COVID precautions, requiring masks for indoor areas and encouraged outside, with extra hand sanitizing stations around the grounds," he explained.
“We also have an on-site COVID testing and on-site vaccine clinics that are occurring for the employees on a weekly basis,” he added.
The festival runs through Nov. 21, with different themes throughout its run.
“The Renaissance Festival is all about escapism," Siegel said. "It’s about forgetting about the more complicated modern-day problems”
And after a year of Zoom meetings, video chatting and quarantining, Siegel says it feels good to step back in time - in person
The festival runs until Nov. 21 every Saturday and Sunday.
According to event organizers, each day is filled with an abundance of attractions and immersive entertainments for all ages. The are multiple stages packed with continuous live comedy, music, dance, vaudeville and circus entertainments

Emergency care for kids in Huntersville getting supercharged, thanks to Martin Truex Jr. Foundation and racing community

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — The theme outside Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center Friday was shovels and dirt, but next year, it will be pit stops, racetracks, and fast cars on the inside.
Ahead of a big NASCAR weekend, racing star Martin Truex, Jr., partner Sherry Pollex, and others from the racing community took the day to gear up for another important development for the Charlotte area--the groundbreaking on a new emergency center for kids in the Huntersville and Lake Norman area.
"This has been a big project for us," Truex said. "And we've been working on it for a while."
"We've been working on this project for three years," Pollex said. "It's amazing to be here at the groundbreaking ceremony today."
Mike Riley, president and chief operating officer of Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center, notes that, as the Charlotte region grows, so does its need for health care services, especially for its littlest residents, and the new emergency center will fill an important need for that area of the community.
The Huntersville center sees 40,000 patients a year in its E.R., and 5,000 of them are kids.
"The community really needs a different level of care for our pediatric patients," Riley said, noting that medical emergencies can evoke anxiety for kids and their families. "When you're a little kid, all that's scary to you. So we're going to change the environment."
The new environment is set to help kids cruise to recovery in a place all their own. Renderings for the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation Children's Emergency Services inside Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center show fun racing murals and a special entrance and waiting room for kids and their families.
"It'll be kind of a fun atmosphere for the kids to come into," Truex said. "They come here in pain, and you want them to cheer up and be happy."
It's a $2.4 million investment made possible with the teaming up of Novant Health, the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation, and other community partners.
"We are so honored to have been chosen by the Martin Truex Foundation and for them to use our hospital for this," Riley said. "They have such a passion for kids and for the Lake Norman community."
Novant Health reports that other top donors to the center include Auto-Owners Insurance, Ryan Blaney Family Foundation, Brad Keselowski's Checkered Flag Foundation, Vincent, Lisa and Vinnie Dailey, Gene Haas Foundation, Joe Gibbs Racing, Denny Hamlin Foundation, Daniel and Traci Hughes, Kasey Kahne Foundation, Haven Kiley Foundation, Dennis and Mary Lehman, Joey Logano Foundation, Metrolina Greenhouses, Evernham Family-Racing for a Reason Foundation, Tyler Reddick, Sokal Media Group, James R. Vannoy & Sons Construction Co. Inc., and the Jerry & Frances Warsky Foundation.
The Martin Truex Jr. Foundation Children's Emergency Services is set to open in the second quarter of 2022.
Eight months later, Colonial Pipeline spill continuing to impact Huntersville residents

The fuel leak was first reported in August 2020, after city officials say two teenagers were riding ATVs and noticed the leak.
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — For the first time since the fuel leak was discovered eight months ago, Colonial Pipeline allowed WCNC Charlotte’s cameras on-site Monday.
Access to the clean-up site, located near the 14000 block of Huntersville Concord Road in Huntersville, is blocked to the public.
WCNC Charlotte's visit to the site comes as North Carolina’s Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) issued a public release Friday, saying data shows the amount of gasoline released in Mecklenburg County’s Oehler Nature Preserve exceeds Colonial’s 1.2 million-gallon estimate.
“It is unacceptable that for eight months Colonial Pipeline has been unable to provide a reliable accounting of the amount of gasoline released into this community,” NCDEQ Secretary Dionne Delli-Gatti said. “We will take all necessary steps and exercise all available authority to hold Colonial Pipeline accountable for what has become one of the largest gasoline spills in the country.”
In response, Colonial Pipeline issued an update April 16, saying the spill is also larger and more deep into the soil than previously thought.
“A preliminary analysis of the data indicates that, while the product appears to remain contained to the general vicinity of the release location and previously delineated product area, there are zones where product is located deeper in the soil than originally modeled,” the update read.
The fuel leak was first reported in August 2020, after city officials say two teenagers were riding ATVs and noticed the leak.
One month later, Colonial Pipeline estimated 273,000 gallons of gasoline had spilled. In November, that number jumped to 354,060 gallons and by January 2021, 1,119,982 gallons.
“I was upset when I heard in August there was a gasoline leak in my district here in Huntersville, but wow, am I worried now because the number of gallons of gasoline keeps going up and up and up,” NC State Sen. Natasha Marcus - (D) NC - District 41 said.
Sen. Marcus said no one yet knows exactly how much gasoline has spilled. In its release, NCDEQ said it has given Colonial until April 26 to file an accurate report.
“Colonial is required to provide a revised Comprehensive Site Assessment (CSA) by April 26 in response to the February Notice of Continuing Violation, which identified 22 deficiencies in Colonial’s CSA and directed Colonial Pipeline to extend residential private well sampling radius an additional 500 feet,” the release said.
Sen. Marcus has also taken action, filing Senate Bill 549 which aims to improve pipeline safety, by providing funding to the NCDEQ to allow for state-level monitoring. As it stands currently, North Carolina relies on Colonial Pipeline for monitoring.
“We have no idea how long this was leaking because current practices clearly do not provide enough safety measures to monitor a leak like this,” she said, adding this is the largest spill in North Carolina’s history.
The Colonial Pipeline is the largest of its kind in the US, carrying more than 100 million gallons of fuel between Texas and New York.
Huntersville resident Donna McCormick said she had no idea the pipeline even ran through Huntersville until the leak.
“We stopped drinking the water as soon as we heard about it and we’ve been drinking bottled water for eight months,” she says.
McCormick, who lives about a mile from Huntersville-Concord Road, has spent more than two decades in her home, raising nine children. She said they receive water from a well on the property, but added she no longer feels safe drinking it.
“I won’t trust it and I won’t trust them now because I feel like they have not given us the truth,” she said.
McCormick said some of her neighbors have already decided to sell, while she and others hope the spill won’t have a negative affect on property values.
“It’s really sad, I think a lot of people are really disappointed," she said. "Somebody’s mistake is costing everybody is many ways, whether it be to sell their home or to let their family use the water, and you know water is pretty important.”
Colonial says they’ve collected more than 600 surface and drinking water well samples since last August, and has not found “any detection of petroleum constituents in those collections.”
To clean up the spilled gasoline, Colonial says they are using an “extensive network of recovery and hydraulic wells. In total, they says there have been 118 wells installed to support product recovery efforts.
The company says as of Monday, April 12, they’ve recovered 24,512 barrels of the previously estimated 28,571 barrels representing approximately 85% of that estimate.

The Mecklenburg County unemployment rate improved somewhat during the late summer.
HUNTERSVILLE, NC — The U.S. posted its weakest job recovery month of the year in September, with just 194,000 non-farm jobs added to the economy.
The September jobs report was even worse than that in August, when 366,000 jobs were created, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The national unemployment rate dropped 0.4 percentage points to 4.8 percent despite the September disappointment.
The latest available local unemployment figures are for August; that rate improved since July in the Huntersville area and continues to be lower than it was the beginning of the pandemic.
The Mecklenburg County unemployment rate was 4.4 percent in August, down from 4.6 percent in July. That reflected some improvement from August 2020, when the unemployment rate stood at 7.6 percent.
The August unemployment rate in Mecklenburg County was the same rate as North Carolina, according to the latest local figures from the BLS.
Nationally, 17.4 million jobs have been added back to the economy since April 2020. Still, the country is down 5 million positions (3.3 percent) from pre-pandemic levels.
The jobs report is based on survey data from mid-September, which may have skewed negatively due to several crises in the country, according to The Washington Post. At the time there were 150,000 coronavirus cases per day in the country; the number has since dropped by nearly half.
Parts of the country were also recovering from the devastating Hurricane Ida, and California is still dealing with the effects of ongoing wildfires.
Average hourly wages continued to climb in September, with a 17-cent gain to $30.85. Hourly wages have grown for six months in a row as employers look to fill vacant positions.
Employees have been more willing than ever to leave their employers. A record 4.3 million employees quit their jobs in August, according to the BLS.
The leisure/hospitality and professional/business service industries led the way for September job gains with 74,000 and 60,000 jobs, respectively. Retail trade jobs increased by 56,000 jobs after two months of little change.
