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 Pineville for years.

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

Here are a few signs that you should be aware of that usually require gutter repairs in Pineville, NC:
Pooling WaterPuddles of water accumulating near your home’s foundation
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.
Peeling PaintHave you noticed that paint is starting to peel down the side of your house? Is there rust beginning to form on your gutters? If so, you could be dealing with a leak. Usually, the result of rust or a puncture, this type of problem needs to be patched by a professional
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. Eventually, the entire gutter will pull away from your home. It is highly recommended that you hire our team of professionals to repair this problem before it gets even worse.

The RMC Research & Education Foundation is collaborating with the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association and its Research, Engineering & Standards Committee (RES) on identification of industry research needs and referral of proposals for potential funding. Members of an RES task group, chaired by Bruce Blair, president of Consumers Concrete in Kalamazoo, Mich., have developed a list of concrete materials research topics, posted on the Foundation’s website, www.rmc-foundation.org, along with proposal submittal guidance.
While not a guarantee for funding of a particular proposal, the list will give stakeholders interested in concrete materials research topics a better, timely sense of what the industry needs and be updated regularly. The hope is that it will also generate more relevant and higher quality proposals for the Foundation and industry. The Foundation’s mission is to fund both research and education projects to increase the quality, sustainability and professionalism in the industry; researchers and consultants are welcome to submit ideas on a variety of topics fitting that criteria.
In addition to providing and updating the list of research needs, the RES task group will review conceptual proposals. If there is sufficient interest and confirmation that the proposal is consistent with the research needs, the applicant will be invited to submit a full proposal subject to the Foundation’s three-tiered approvals process. The task group may provide feedback on the direction of the research after the project is funded, and members may review and comment on interim and final reports. Additional information on the research target list and RMC Foundation proposal process can be obtained from NRMCA Vice President, Technical Services Karthik Obla, email@example.com.
National Precast Concrete Association producer and associate members are opening their doors November 1-12 for Precast Days 2021, a unique educational opportunity for local communities to tour operations and interface with valued employers. As of late September, 25 members had registered 30-plus plants for Precast Days events. Leading hosts are Jensen Precast (four Nevada, California plants); Shea Concrete Products (four Massachusetts, New Hampshire plants); and Wieser Concrete (three Wisconsin, Illinois plants). The continuously updated Precast Days host facilities map is posted at www.precast.org.
The American Concrete Pumping Association has released Safety Bulletin: Use of Lay-Flat Hose, plus updated Safety Guidelines for Wind Velocity and Lightning. The bulletin illustrates handling guidelines for using lay-flat hoses, which allow for improved flow control and lower placement rates than standard concrete boom tip hoses and suit pumping in tight spaces such as insulating concrete forms, columns and walls. The Wind Velocity and Lightning documents recommend practices for challenging weather events. The former reflects changes to previous generic guidelines and defers more specifically to the pump manufacturer; the latter expands on criteria for halting placement operations when lighting is present and when it is safe to re-start. The Flat Hose, Wind Velocity and Lightning publications join the association’s extensive safety library posted at www.concretepumpers.com/content.
“It is important for pumpers and contractors to understand the differences between lay-flat and standard boom tip hose applications,” says ACPA Executive Director Christi Collins. “Although similar, each have specific guidelines that should be followed for their respective uses. This new safety bulletin responds to a need for increased education when using lay-flat hoses to avoid certain hazards, such as kinking, which can cause a hose whipping. Hose whippings are a leading cause of accidents with a concrete pump.” Continually updating resources for equipment and site conditions is part of ACPA’s mission to promote a positive safety culture, she adds.
Concrete Materials & Pumping of Pineville, N.C. is building its Carolinas market footprint and adding a Louisiana presence in a deal for Charlotte-based Febcon Concrete Pumping. “Coming out of the initial Febcon management team meeting, we felt confident in progressing with the strategic acquisition,” says CMP President Doug Doggett. “The shared values and commitment to excellence align seamlessly across both businesses. Concrete & Materials Placement and Febcon prioritize a family-oriented culture, customer-first approach, and best in business, safety protocols. The systems and process infrastructure parallels ensure a smooth acquisition to deliver capabilities expansion and even better service for our prospective and existing clients.” As the company acquires strategic locations, he adds, CMP holds steadfast on a commitment to excellence and deepening of core values: reliability, respect, transparency, quality, and safety across the concrete pumping industry.
The World Cement Association has announced the addition of global energy technology company Baker Hughes as an associate corporate member. Baker Hughes operates in over 120 countries, designing, manufacturing and deploying innovative technologies and services that help make energy safer, cleaner and more efficient. Specialist capabilities include areas such as emissions management, hydrogen, carbon capture utilization and storage, and energy storage, as well as expertise in helping industrial companies with their energy transition journeys as they move toward net-zero. Baker Hughes works across the entire energy value chain and in key industrial markets, including cement.
“Reducing the impact of energy usage is one of the most important levers we have when it comes to cutting the emissions from cement manufacture and making net-zero a reality,” explains WCA CEO Ian Riley. “We are therefore especially pleased to be welcoming Baker Hughes, a global leader in this field, to our membership, and look forward to working alongside them to share the latest thinking and best practice with the international cement community.”
“Industrial sectors must prioritize achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, and as one of the hardest to abate sectors, the cement industry is no exception,” adds Baker Hughes Executive Vice President, Regions, Alliances & Enterprise Sales Uwem Ukpong. “We look forward to collaborating with WCA and its members as the industry looks to cut emissions and reduce their environmental impact, through new energy frontiers and increased efficiencies.”

PINEVILLE, N.C. (WBTV) - Multiple community organizations are coming together to host a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Pineville Saturday. The clinic is being held at Pineville Pharmacy in Pineville Towne Market and will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will all be available at the clinic. The event comes as COVID-19 case numbers have started to spike again across the country.
Officials from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services announced Friday that the continued spread of the virus has led to a surge in vaccinations. Officials said more people got vaccinated last week compared to just two weeks prior. Overall doses administered for COVID-19 vaccines were up more than 16 percent and first doses increased more than 30 percent.
Saturday’s clinic is being organized by Pineville Neighbors Place, a nonprofit dedicated to helping the homeless and impoverished, as well as Bridge Builders Charlotte, a network of campus-community partnerships bridging religious differences in Charlotte. Organizers said they hope to speak with community members who are unvaccinated and help ease their concerns about the vaccine.
“People need their questions answered and so what we’re trying to do is provide that information. We’ve undergone training about the vaccines so we want to answer people’s questions and help them get the vaccine,” said Jane Shutt, executive director of Pineville Neighbors Place.
Irene Kuriakose, a volunteer with Bridge Builders Charlotte, said she too will be at the clinic. She explained the approach she’ll be taking when speaking to unvaccinated individuals.
“Just trying to listen and have a conversation first and hear what are your reasons for being hesitant to get the vaccine. That’s definitely the best approach cause we don’t want to argue with them, we want to listen first,” said Kuriakose.
Dr. Kishan Patel, the owner and pharmacist at Pineville Pharmacy, explained that he has noticed more people getting vaccinated for COVID-19 in recent weeks.
“It has significantly picked up. A lot of people are coming to get the vaccines and it’s a great thing,” said Patel. “We’ve seen huge increases in people getting J&J and also Pfizer and Moderna.”
Shutt said everyone who gets their vaccine at the clinic Saturday will receive a $50 gift card and will also be entered into a raffle to win $500.

Atrium Health plots $47M bed tower expansion at Cabarrus hospital

Atrium Health is expanding into another floor of the heart and vascular tower at its Cabarrus hospital.
Charlotte-based Atrium recently filed an application to add 22 medical-surgical beds in an approximately 28,400-square-foot space within the tower. Estimated project cost is $46.6 million, according to state filings. The four-story, 163,000-square-foot tower opened in 2019 as part of a larger modernization process at the Cabarrus campus.
The tower brought cardiac and radiology services to one location. It houses Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute services, interventional radiology, cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology labs, pre- and post-operative care, and an intensive-care unit.
Construction on the new floor is slated to begin in March 2023, Atrium said. The space will accommodate 30 total beds — the 22 new beds, plus another eight from the Hayes Family Center.
The new floor is scheduled to open in 2025, Atrium said.
This year's State Medical Facilities Plan outlined a need for 123 beds in Mecklenburg County by 2023. If approved, these 22 beds would go toward that total.
Atrium has made several investments in its Cabarrus campus in recent years, including updates to the women's center. The health-care system has been adding services at its facilities outside of the center city to bring higher-level care closer to patients. The Cabarrus hospital, just off Interstate 85 in Concord, is a 457-bed facility. It rebranded from Carolinas HealthCare System-NorthEast in 2019.
Elsewhere, Atrium's Union West hospital in Stallings is on track to open next year. The 150,000-square-foot building will house 40 acute-care beds. A new bed tower at Atrium's Pineville hospital is set to open later this year. This summer, Atrium also received approval to build a $154 million Lake Norman-area hospital in Cornelius with 30 beds. That facility is scheduled to open in early 2024.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – State health officials are investigating a COVID outbreak at the Atrium Hospital in Pineville. On Monday, state officials wrote that 51 employees had tested positive for the virus, as well as nine patients.
For the Tucker family, there were a few nerves and a whole lot of happiness after baby Ellie was born on July 27.
“There’s still not much sleep,” laughed Grandma, Sabrina Tucker.
Sabrina said she was at the Atrium Hospital in Pineville from July 26-29. Her daughter, Makayla, gave birth there. She said when they finally brought Ellie home, Sabrina realized just how tired and sore she was.
“We were exhausted, you haven’t slept in days, your immune system is down anyway, it never occurred to me it would be more than that,” said Sabrina.
Fast forward to August 4, Sabrina tested positive for COVID.
“I had two positive COVID tests by the time they called,” she said.
She said Atrium called her on August 8 to let her know that she may have been exposed to COVID while Makayla was in the hospital. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is investigating the outbreak. So far, 51 employees have gotten COVID as well as nine patients.
On August 2, FOX 46 sent an e-mail to Atrium asking about a potential COVID outbreak at their Pineville location. It wasn’t until August 12, ten days later, that they confirmed it.
FOX 46 emailed the state health department, who confirmed that Atrium told them about the outbreak on August 4.
On Monday, Mecklenburg County Health officials said they were told about the outbreak on August 7, but they decided that they didn’t need to tell the public because Atrium had a handle on it.
“It became clear the story to tell was Atrium’s story,” said Gibbie Harris, the director of the Mecklenburg County Health Department. “It was their outbreak, they were managing it, working with the state, for that reason we did not make any type of announcements at that point.”
However, Sabrina said, when it comes to COVID, time matters.
“If you let the state know by the 4th, we should have known before the 8th. We didn’t get the first phone call from them until the 8th. That’s just too long, it’s not okay,” said Sabrina.
FOX 46 reached out to Atrium for comment. Officials wrote that they don’t comment on any specific cases, due to health laws. They did not provide any update on their investigation.
