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.jpg

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 Pineville 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 Pineville, 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.

Post 21 blows 8-run lead, drops Game 2 (with video)

CHARLOTTE — The Burke County Post 21 American Legion baseball team led host Pineville Post 337 by an 11-3 margin entering the bottom of the sixth inning Monday night at Ardrey Kell High School.Post 21 had outscored Pineville 18-3 over 12 innings spanning two nights and had allowed just seven runs over the last 25 innings at that point, but allowed seven runs in the sixth, then two more in the seventh — after recording two consecutive outs to start the frame — to drop Game 2 in the teams’ N.C.

CHARLOTTE — The Burke County Post 21 American Legion baseball team led host Pineville Post 337 by an 11-3 margin entering the bottom of the sixth inning Monday night at Ardrey Kell High School.

Post 21 had outscored Pineville 18-3 over 12 innings spanning two nights and had allowed just seven runs over the last 25 innings at that point, but allowed seven runs in the sixth, then two more in the seventh — after recording two consecutive outs to start the frame — to drop Game 2 in the teams’ N.C. Area IV best-of-five first-round playoff series in gut-wrenching fashion, 12-11.

The teams met again late Tuesday at Morganton’s Shuey Field for Game 3, with Game 4 today at 7 p.m. back at Ardrey Kell. Game 5 (if necessary) will be Thursday at Shuey at 6 p.m.

Post 21 was a strike away from getting out of the seventh without allowing a base runner, let alone two runs. But reliever Mason Mozeley barely missed what was easily the smallest strike zone that Western Division No. 4 seed Post 21 (8-8) has seen all year on a 2-2 offering, then allowed a double to the left-center gap.

East No. 5 Pineville (5-6) followed with a walk and an RBI infield single on a close play after a headfirst slide into the bag, then plated the winning run after the second passed ball in the half-inning.

It was the most runs allowed in a game all year by Post 21, which left the bases loaded with one out in the second and with two outs in the sixth to compound the misery.

Post 21 squandered a quality start from Chapel Matson (5 IP, 8 H, BB, 3 ER, 2 K), the co-conference pitcher of the year this spring at McDowell High who has yet to earn a winning decision with the legion club.

Reliever Hunter Byerly (1/3 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 4 ER) struggled to find the strike zone and was hurt by fielding blunders behind him as well, as Post 21 committed all three of its errors on the night in Pineville’s big sixth inning. Pineville committed five errors in the victory (four of which came in the first four innings) but outhit the guests 13-11.

Mozeley (1 1/3 IP, 2 H, BB, 2 ER, 2 K), one of Sunday’s Game 1 heroes, got Post 21 out of trouble in the sixth, then struck out the first two batters he faced in the seventh, nearly closing things out for what would have been an overwhelming 2-0 series lead that was simply not meant to be.

Post 21 scored four first-inning runs and added two apiece in the second and third to jump to an 8-1 lead off Pineville pitcher Peter Gullo (3 IP, 6 H, 2 BB, 3 ER, 4 K), who made up for his shaky start by going 3 for 3 with two walks, two RBIs and two runs, including the game-winner.

Post 21 tacked on its final three runs in the sixth.

Post 21 was led at the plate by Dusty Revis (3 for 5, double, HR, two runs, three RBIs), cleanup hitter Ethan Hensley (2 for 5, two runs, two RBIs) and Mozeley (1 for 2, two walks, two runs, RBI), who reached base after all five plate appearances.

The American Legion Post 555 baseball team “The Boys of Summer” defeated Pineville in a come from behind victory at Independence High School Stadium on Friday night. The team is now 1-1 on the season, and the local talent is looking highly competitive.

The visitors from Pineville took an early lead in the top of the first inning. They scratched a run off the starter Adam Wilkerson who ran into some trouble giving up a base-on-balls, a base hit, a hit batsman, and a run scoring on a passed ball by the catcher who was unable to block a ball in the dirt to prevent the run from scoring giving the visitors a 1-0 lead.

The Pineville hitters seemed to be familiar with Wilkerson as they were able to score two more runs in the second inning, and add another run in the third frame giving the visiting team a comfortable 4-0 advantage through 2.5 innings of play.

However, in the bottom half of the third inning, the home team bats woke up and they began to produce some important runs in scoring situations. Indy’s Jake Stanley singled, Wilson Lohrer followed with a singled up the middle, Nathan Sami would hustle out an infield hit to load the bases, then Andy Duran, two time All-State selection from Queen’s Grant scorched a line-drive into the right-center field gap to the wall for a double, driving in all three base runners putting Mint Hill right back into this ball game. Duran would eventually score when Timmy Cotton would single to left driving in the tying run at 4-4 after three innings of competition.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, Mint Hill would take the lead on a base hit by Jake Stanley, Wilson Lohrer drilling his third single of the game, Nathan Sami would single home Stanley for the eventual game winning RBI. Duran would make the final out on a deep fly ball to the warning track in center field.

Carson Gesing, the Patriots top starter during the high school season pitched shut-out baseball the rest of the way allowing only two hits to earn the win for Mint Hill. Meanwhile, Wilson Lohrer went 3-4, Duran had 3 RBI’s, and Sami contributing the game winner showed this team has some determination and grit.

In fact it was a team effort, the defense which was a little shaky initially, played solidly with fine defensive plays in the outfield, and especially in the seventh inning when Gesing allowed his only walk to the lead-off batter on a 3-2 count, a hard infield grounder was hit in the hole between first and second, Stanley fielded the ball cleanly, he fired a strike to second base covered by shortstop Sami to get the lead runner. Gesing, remaining focused was able to get the final two outs. This game was now done giving the home team their first win of the early season.

All baseball fans should try to come out weather permitting to watch some excellent baseball by many of our best local talent in the area. The following upcoming home games are Sunday, June 20, Monday, June 21, Tuesday, June 22, Thursday, 24, Friday, June 25 at Independence High School. All games begin at 7:00 pm.

North Carolina back above 1,000 positive cases per day; delta variant dominates cases

GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — North Carolina’s COVID-19 cases are back above 1,000 cases per day, as health leaders warn individuals who have still not been vaccinated for the virus.On Thursday, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen addressed the state, stressing that the numbers were disturbing as Fourth of July-linked cases appear.“We had a thousand new cases a day reported yesterday and today.

GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — North Carolina’s COVID-19 cases are back above 1,000 cases per day, as health leaders warn individuals who have still not been vaccinated for the virus.

On Thursday, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen addressed the state, stressing that the numbers were disturbing as Fourth of July-linked cases appear.

“We had a thousand new cases a day reported yesterday and today. That’s more than three times the number of cases we were seeing just two weeks ago,” Cohen said.

Per the state’s website, there were 1,020 cases reported on Thursday, with 492 people having been hospitalized across the state.

The state also has a 5.5 percent positivity rate amongst those who are tested.

Cohen and other health professionals warn that more than 99 percent of these cases are from those who have not been vaccinated.

“Those who are in the hospital right now, and those nearly a thousand cases that we are seeing, I truly believe that those cases are truly avoidable,” said Dr. Ashish Khanna, an assistant professor at Wake Forest Baptist and works in the Adult Critical Care unit.

To him, the numbers are concerning.

In North Carolina, 59 percent of adults 18 and older have gotten at least one COVID-19 vaccination, and 56 percent are fully vaccinated.

The state, however, is now recording an alarming number of COVID-19-positive cases, most of which are the delta variant.

“We do know the delta variant is mutating rapidly within that cohort of individuals who have severe symptomatic infections,” Khanna said.

Most of the patients are between the ages of 25 and 50.

In the Triad, COVID cases are not at the levels they were last year.

On July 15, 2020, there were just more than 1,800 cases, however this year it is 800 fewer.

Khanna says it’s a sign the vaccines are working.

“Masked up last year and still we had big surges after holidays. This year, people did their things on the Fourth of July weekend. They were unmasked, they had parties, families got together. However, there was not as much of a surge. Clearly, vaccination is kicking in, and it’s making a difference,” Khanna said.

Dr. Iulia Vann told Guilford County Commissioners Thursday night that the county saw its lowest positive rate in June. That number though is going up, with a 3.7 percent positive rate.

Cone Health also reported 11 confirmed hospitalizations on Monday, but by Thursday they were at 17.
