Gutter Cleaning in Kannapolis, NC
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 Kannapolis 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.

LeaksThe next time it rains, grab your umbrella and check your gutters for signs of drips or leaks.
Displaced HardwareIf you notice gutter-hanging hardware laying on the ground under the edge of your roof, it’s time to call in The Gutter Gorilla. This is a sign that your gutters aren’t fastened securely. One strong gust of wind or heavy rainstorm could cause serious damage to your gutter system.
MoldCheck your basement and your attic for signs of mold growth. If you see any mold or mildew, your gutters might not be doing their job of directing water away from your home.

Uneven GuttersIf your gutters are uneven or starting to sag in the middle, it’s not a good sign. In situations like these, pooling water will not be able to drain towards your corner downspouts.

Kannapolis native serves as a member of U.S. Navy’s ‘Silent Service’
KINGS BAY, Ga. – A Kannapolis, North Carolina, native is serving aboard USS Tennessee, one of the world’s most advanced nuclear-powered submarines.Petty Officer 1st Class Andrew Pierce, a 2002 South Rowan High School graduate, joined the Navy 11 years ago.“I joined the Navy to provide a steady income to my wife and young children,” said Pierce.Today, Pierce serves as a missile technician whose responsibilities include maintaining hydraulic and electrical systems, as well as, maintaining the computer syst...
KINGS BAY, Ga. – A Kannapolis, North Carolina, native is serving aboard USS Tennessee, one of the world’s most advanced nuclear-powered submarines.Petty Officer 1st Class Andrew Pierce, a 2002 South Rowan High School graduate, joined the Navy 11 years ago.
“I joined the Navy to provide a steady income to my wife and young children,” said Pierce.
Today, Pierce serves as a missile technician whose responsibilities include maintaining hydraulic and electrical systems, as well as, maintaining the computer systems that control the systems.
According to Pierce, the values required to succeed in the military are similar to those found in Kannapolis.
“I learned that hard work and dedication are the only ways to produce the success that you want,” said Pierce.
Known as America’s “Silent Service,” the Navy’s submarine force operates a large fleet of technically advanced vessels. These submarines are capable of conducting rapid defensive and offensive operations around the world, in furtherance of U.S. national security.
There are three basic types of submarines: fast-attack submarines (SSN), ballistic-missile submarines (SSBN) and guided-missile submarines (SSGN).
Fast-attack submarines are designed to hunt down and destroy enemy submarines and surface ships; strike targets ashore with cruise missiles; carry and deliver Navy SEALs; conduct intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions; and engage in mine warfare.
The Navy’s ballistic-missile submarines, often referred to as “boomers,” serve as a strategic deterrent by providing an undetectable platform for submarine-launched ballistic missiles. SSBNs are designed specifically for stealth, extended patrols and the precise delivery of missiles.
Guided-missile submarines provide the Navy with unprecedented strike and special operation mission capabilities from a stealthy, clandestine platform. Each SSGN is capable of carrying 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles, plus a complement of heavyweight torpedoes to be fired through four torpedo tubes. As a member of the submarine force, Pierce is part of a rich 121-year history of the U.S. Navy’s most versatile weapons platform, capable of taking the fight to the enemy in the defense of America and its allies.
Serving in the Navy means Pierce is part of a team that is taking on new importance in America’s focus on rebuilding military readiness, strengthening alliances and reforming business practices in support of the National Defense Strategy.
“The Navy contributes to national security through strategic deterrence and maintaining a fleet of water platforms that keep those who may wish to harm us at bay,” said Pierce.
With more than 90 percent of all trade traveling by sea, and 95 percent of the world’s international phone and internet traffic carried through underwater fiber optic, Navy officials continue to emphasize that the prosperity and security of the United States is directly linked to a strong and ready Navy. A major component of that maritime security is homeported at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay.
“We do two big things here in King’s Bay: we send SSBNs on Strategic Deterrence Patrols and we forward deploy our guided missile submarines overseas,” said Rear Adm. John Spencer, Commander, Submarine Group Ten. “This work is essential to uphold the number one mission of the Navy: strategic deterrence. And this is the only home port for both of these types of submarines on the East Coast.”
Strategic deterrence is the Nation’s ultimate insurance program, and for decades, Kings Bay has been home to Ohio Class SSBN ballistic-missile submarines. Beginning in 2028, the new Columbia Class ballistic-missile submarines will arrive and provide continuous sea-based strategic deterrence into the 2080s.
As Pierce and other sailors continue to train and perform the missions they are tasked with, they take pride in serving their country in the United States Navy.
“Serving in the Navy is a way to provide for my family, as well as, ensure that my children will have a future free from oppressive rule or tyranny,” added Pierce. “It enables my kids to have any life they choose.”

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (WBTV) - Press release: The Carolina Lightning Rugby League has partnered with some of the biggest names in the U.S. Rugby League to bring a one-of-a-kind star-studded match, The Carolina Cup, to Kannapolis. The Carolina Cup will feature big hits, fast-paced action and entertainment for all.
Don’t miss out on your opportunity to see first class rugby at 4 p.m., on September 25th. The match will be held at A.L. Brown High School’s Memorial Stadium, 415 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave., Kannapolis, N.C.
This family-friendly event starts at 4 p.m. on September 25th and will feature two games, food, and of course tons of fun! The first of the two games, highlights the new Carolina Thunder women’s rugby league team taking on the visiting Roots Rugby. The second match is the Carolina Cup All Star game, and it kicks off at 6 p.m.
A first of its kind event in rugby league, two All-Star teams were drafted by two of USA Rugby League’s best, 11-time USA Hawk Ryan Burroughs, and 8-time USA Hawk Nick Newlin. Elite players from around the country have been selected for both teams with Pan-America Games Medal winners, US, and Foreign International players and even a WWE Superstar. All of whom look forward to showcasing their skills in the greater Charlotte area.
Be ready for Rugby League to become your new favorite sport, because the action never stops in rugby league. Unlike football the time between tackles is short but not unlike football the hits are big, and the moves are smooth. Rugby League starts exactly like football with a kickoff and the offensive team has 6 plays to score by crossing the defending teams goal line with the ball and applying downward pressure on the ball. Typically, on the 5th play, if a team isn’t in a position to score, they’ll kick the ball away to gain territory, just like a 4th down punt in football. After each tackle the play is over, and the defending side must retreat behind the offside line similar to the line of scrimmage in football. The flow of the two sports is very similar making Rugby League a great new sport for football fans or any sports fan.
Purchase tickets at www.carolinalightningrl.com or on gameday at the stadium. Game tickets are $30 for a family of four (4), $15 for adults, $10 for youth 13-18, and kids under 13 get in free! We are excited to show you the new professional sport coming to the area and hope you are too. With all this excitement, you won’t want to miss this!

Neighbors say HOA forcing them to pay company for TV/internet no matter who they use
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — Tammy Mariano said she moved to Kellswater Bridge in Kannapolis and then found out she had to pay Hotwire for TV and internet, even if she used a different company’s services.“You can use Spectrum, but you still have to pay a $71 fee to the HOA or to Hawthorne Management [for Hotwire] … whether you want it or not,” she told Action 9′s Jason Stoogenke.Mariano prefers Spectrum but had to drop it because even with the Hotwire discount, she couldn’t afford both.&l...
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — Tammy Mariano said she moved to Kellswater Bridge in Kannapolis and then found out she had to pay Hotwire for TV and internet, even if she used a different company’s services.
“You can use Spectrum, but you still have to pay a $71 fee to the HOA or to Hawthorne Management [for Hotwire] … whether you want it or not,” she told Action 9′s Jason Stoogenke.
Mariano prefers Spectrum but had to drop it because even with the Hotwire discount, she couldn’t afford both.
“I was upset because I have always used Spectrum,” she said.
Other neighbors complained, including one who emailed Action 9.
“A lot of people here … are not happy about this,” that resident said.
Stoogenke looked into the situation and found out a prior HOA signed a 7-year contract with Hotwire. Residents get a discount. The HOA wouldn’t say how much, but one insider told said it’s usually about 30%-50% off.
The HOA said it’s concerned that some homeowners may refuse to pay and is urging them not to do that. It says the neighborhood will still owe Hotwire and that, “If the owners do not pay for the service, Hotwire could very well drive the HOA into financial ruin if it is unable to pay Hotwire’s bills.”
If you’re in a situation like this, there’s not much you can do, Stooganek says. If your HOA signs a contract, you usually have to wait until the contract is up to make a change.
Stoogenke covered a similar situation before, involving renters, not homeowners.
In that case, an apartment complex in south Charlotte was charging renters for Spectrum. They could use another company, but they’d have to pay for both, like in this case.
And, recently, a Shelby woman emailed Action 9, saying her landlord is trying to do the same thing to her and her neighbors. Stoogenke is looking into that as well.

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – With the North Carolina State Fair underway, the return of the family-fun fall event is expected to see one million people across it’s 10 days in Raleigh. But with that many people, how exactly do you park to get inside?
The fair offers free on and off-site parking in a variety of locations. From regular parking on-site, to bussing or shuttling in from short distances away and even taking trains in from as far away as Charlotte, you will get your funnel cake.
On-site, fair-goers can park for free on State Fair, Carter-Finley Football Stadium and PNE Arena properties, the official State Fair website said. Drivers are encouraged to take Wade Avenue to the Edwards Mill Extension to park in the three lots.
However, if there are events, like Carolina Hurricanes hockey or North Carolina State Wolfpack football, those ways could get jammed, the website said, and alternative routes are expected to be open.
All cars are just asked to leave any of the lots by midnight each day.
Fair-goers can also plan to take a free off-site shuttle to avoid the possible traffic into on-site lots.
The State Fair offers off-site parking at the corner of Edwards Mill and Reedy Creek Road that can be accessed via Wade Avenue. The continuously running shuttle will pick up and drop off at the same location and let riders off at Gate 8 on Trinity Road to get into the fair.
The lot hours for the shuttle are 8 a.m. until one after gate closure for the remainder of the fair.
Additionally, one can Park-and-Ride to the fair from AMTRAK’s Garner or Raleigh locations.
The round trip fare from both places is $5 and operates from 8 a.m. until midnight. It only accepts credit card.
Finally, if you’re attending from further away, AMTRAK is offering its Carolinian 80 and Piedmont 77 trains as services to and from the fair.
It said to get to the fair, take the morning Carolinian 80 train that departs Charlotte at 6:45 a.m. The train stops in Kannapolis, Salisbury, High Point, Greensboro, Burlington, Durham and Cary before reaching the State Fairgrounds at 9:53 a.m. The fair website lists pick up ties from Charlotte through seven cities before arriving in Raleigh.
To get home, take the return train Piedmont 77 departing the State Fairgrounds at 3:07 p.m. with stops in Cary, Durham, Burlington, Greensboro, High Point, Salisbury and Kannapolis, arriving in Charlotte at 6:10 p.m. The individual stops are also listed in the same place on the website.
Tickets for this train can be purchased here.

Before drivers hit the Roval at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend for a pair of NASCAR Cup and Xfinity Series playoff races, they’ll be lacing up for a different kind of competition — on the diamond.
Corey LaJoie’s Inaugural Charity Kickball Klassic, featuring a star-studded cast of drivers and celebrities, makes its debut Wednesday at Atrium Health Ballpark, home of the Kannapolis (N.C.) Cannon Ballers. The Spire Motorsports driver-led charity event will see proceeds donated to the Kannapolis YMCA and LaJoie’s organization of choice, Samaritan’s Feet.
Two seasons ago, LaJoie put Samaritan’s Feet on his car at Watkins Glen International and donated a month’s salary to the organization. The group helps provide shoes and socks to those in need across the globe.
“I’ve had this idea of a kickball tournament for years now. … I played with (Hendrick Motorsports crew chief) Cliff Daniels’ team in Huntersville (N.C.) for a couple years and just how much fun it is, but it is somewhat competitive. Everybody does a golf tournament but I wanted to do something a little bit different,” LaJoie said. ” … to be able to get a bunch of teams to raise that much more money for the Kannapolis YMCA as well as Samaritan’s Feet, which has pretty much been my charity that I use my platform to promote because if I were to build one it would be exactly what they do; to provide shoes to children and people worldwide. It’s going to raise over six figures, I don’t really know what the final number’s going to be. It was looking somewhere around $150,000.”
Each team will have a celebrity captain from a list of NASCAR drivers, professional athletes, or entertainment celebrities in attendance. Special guests include drivers Austin Dillon, Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch, Ryan Blaney, Ty Gibbs, Matt DiBenedetto, Joey Logano, Bubba Wallace, Michael McDowell, Daniel Suarez, Ross Chastain, Denny Hamlin, NBA player Marvin Williams, professional softball player Lauren Haeger and many others.
NASCAR will live stream the celebrity game at 6 p.m. ET on NASCAR’s Facebook and YouTube pages. The tournament is sponsored by Built Bar, which was recently named the Official Protein Bar of NASCAR.
“I just hit the ground and tried to sell the teams and round up some guys to play and it turned into a much bigger event than I anticipated and it’s going to be really fun to see everybody out there hanging out and to see NASCAR Productions and NASCAR Digital to show up and stream it on Facebook and their YouTube page,” he said.
“It really is a group effort and it’s really cool to see everybody come together and help me pull off this thing.”
The tournament starts at noon with 16 teams vying for the title. The top four teams after an afternoon of pool play will advance to the semifinals and the winners to the title game. Three kickball fields will be set up in the outfield at Atrium Health Ballpark and five will be located in the Kannapolis horseshoe.
Once a tournament champion is crowned, the celebrities will face off in a “just-for-fun” kickball contest of their own and will hold an autograph session for fans. There will also be a Family Fun Zone sponsored by GoPro Motorplex featuring bouncy houses and other kid-friendly activities, in addition to a post-tournament concert with opening act The Dryes and headliners Pryor & Lee. General admission tickets are $10, with children 3 and under free.
