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.

Fort Mill Medical Center, an extension of Piedmont Medical Center, will soon open with 380 employees. The center was a big need in the rapidly growing community.
FORT MILL, S.C. — Just across the border from Charlotte are the South Carolina communities of Fort Mill and Tega Cay -- and growth in the Queen City has been spilling over across the state border.
These towns are adapting to the growth while managing lingering challenges in hospitals and schools from the effects of COVID-19.
“Lots of healthcare workers developed PTSD, lots of nurses stopped practicing,' Piedmont Medical Center CEO Mark Nosacka said. "In addition to that, everybody else wants healthcare - surgeries, etcetera. So the demands on every hospital in America have exceeded capacity."
Nosacka spoke at a community breakfast gathering Thursday, sharing the reality hospitals are dealing with. He said there are more people dying in hospitals now than during the first wave of the pandemic and 85-90% of those dying are unvaccinated.
Healthcare workers are having to make tough decisions related to care.
"Here’s what we have to do -- we have to run an emergency room, we have to treat the COVID patients safely so everybody else doesn’t get sick, we have to deliver babies, and we have to do emergency surgery," Nosacka said. "That’s what we have to, have to do. Everybody else we’ve got to triage and decide, 'Can we slow down care to accommodate for all those emergencies first?'"
But there is help on the way. Fort Mill Medical Center, an extension of Piedmont Medical Center, will soon open with 380 employees. The medical center was a big need in a community that is rapidly growing.
The superintendent of the Fort Mill School District, Chuck Epps, pointed out major growth in the area: in 1995, the district had 3,500 students and four school sites. Today, there are nearly 18,000 students with 20 school sites.
"So really the challenge that this school district has faced has been one of building schools, building capacity for all these new students," Epps said.
Epps said the plan is to add a referendum to the ballot sometime in the next few years to pay for new schools. The Fort Mill School District is the smallestgeographically in the state, but is also the fastest-growing right now.

County Councilman for District 1, Tom Audette, says, “A lot of things have been going on at the county, and a lot of exciting things throughout the challenges of COVID, we’ve been able to really want to expand outdoors activities from within the community. One of the key things is around our parks. Currently, we have seven parks that we’re expanding on.”
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, these county and city leaders making presentations on how these communities have actually been able to persevere over the last two years.
“We’re looking to keep people…to give people an opportunity to work in York County, okay? That’s critical. So, from our economic development perspective we’re looking at again, ways of bringing businesses in here,” says Audette.
Fort Mill’s Mayor Guynn Savage sharing town accomplishments like, vaccine clinics, park updates and its biggest project, the waste water treatment facility.
“As you can see it’s under construction. This is a tremendous service project for the community. Not only are we expanding our services but we’re upgrading them as well, putting the best technology to work,” says Savage.
Announcing his retirement from office after this term, Tega Cay’s Mayor David O’Neal speaking about park updates and the biggest project, Catawba Park.
“So for 15 years we weren’t able to do this and now because an impact fees, we’re able to build the premier park. It’s not just for Tega Cay, it’s a regional park. It’ll be used by people in the whole region, all of York County and probably from North Carolina also,” says O’Neal.

“Be a Coffee Bean”: Tega Cay aims to be first Coffee Bean City, but it doesn’t have anything to do with brewing coffee

TEGA CAY, S.C. (WBTV) - There is something brewing in the City of Tega Cay.
City leaders are hoping to promote positivity amongst the community with a program known as ‘Be a Coffee Bean.’
City Manager of Tega Cay Charlie Funderburk says, like many people, city employees got into a funk during 2020.
“It really just kind of messed up our culture,” Funderburk said. “People were being very short with one another as they were communicating, things like that.”
Funderburk says he was looking for leadership inspiration when he came across a book co-written by motivational speaker and author Damon West. The book is called “The Coffee Bean.”
According to a video on Damon West’s website, he came across the concept of being a coffee bean on his way to prison to serve a 65-year-sentence for crimes he committed related to his drug addiction. He compares prison to a boiling pot of hot water.
“The story of the coffee bean that he [West] tells is that life is like a pot of boiling hot water,” Funderburk said. “When you throw a carrot in the pot of hot water, what happens to it? It becomes soft. It becomes weak. When you throw an egg into that same boiling pot of hot water, it becomes hard like a hard-boiled egg. What happens when you throw a coffee bean into a pot of boiling hot water? Well, the water becomes coffee. So, the smallest of the three objects that you add into that pot of boiling water, it changes its environment instead of letting its environment change it.”
Funderburk was so moved by the concept, he decided to introduce it to city employees in early June of 2021. He says he noticed a change in their positivity and attitudes.
“People who ordinarily have come in, go into their office, do their work, and go home, now, they’re like ‘hey, how are you doing’, ‘how’s your family’, ‘how was your evening’. They are generally just happier,” Funderburk said.
So, city leaders took it a step further and challenged city employees to spread the ‘be a coffee bean’ message to people in the community. They gave each employee five bracelets that read: ‘Be a Coffee Bean’. Each time a coffee bean is identified, the person is recognized on the City of Tega Cay’s Facebook page.
“That coffee bean person is looking to make a difference, looking to make things better,” Funderburk said. “If that becomes the new norm, just think about how much better we will be.”
Now, Tega Cay’s Parks and Recreation Director Joey Blethen is working to bring the program to Tega Cay’s youth leagues. Each season, about 1,800 kids from ages three to 14 are involved in youth sports within the city.
Blethen says instilling the ‘Be a Coffee Bean’ program will start with parents and coaches. Each will be given a positivity pledge to sign. The letter ensures parents and coaches are putting positivity and sportsmanship first.
“The coach kind of sets the tone for everyone,” Blethen explained. “If the coach is upset at a call, that’s going to permeate to the kids, to the parents, and everything.”
Athletes will get involved by nominating coffee beans on their teams. The coffee bean players will be put into a drawing for a grand prize which is where local businesses come into play.
The owners of Abbott’s Frozen Custard of Tega Cay, Todd and Kathy Nettnin, wanted to get involved as soon as they read the story of ‘The Coffee Bean’.
“There’s so much negativity in the world today and the whole coffee bean story is really just about celebrating good,” Todd Nettnin said. “Even the littlest thing that somebody does to be a better person.”
The Nettnins will incentivize being a coffee bean athlete by offering prizes, including free frozen custard, to players who show positivity.
“We’re setting the building blocks by saying, ‘Hey, just be a good person’,” Blethen said.
Funderburk says Tega Cay’s school principals are also welcoming the idea. He says there will be coffee bean clubs in schools from elementary to high school come the fall. He hopes the concept will create a positive ripple effect on everyone it touches.
“I want us to go from coffee bean city, to coffee bean county, to coffee bean state,” Funderburk said.

TEGA CAY, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – The community is continuing to come together for one another, as people get back on their feet after the pandemic. One Tega Cay woman is feeding those in need in the community no questions asked through her new group “Bountiful Blessings TC”. Her acts of kindness have sparked a newfound friendship with one woman who just turned 88-years-old and now has limited mobility.
Judy Wong, a Tega Cay resident, founded a new group Bountiful Blessings TC that feeds those in need in the community and surrounding areas no questions asked. After the difficult year the community faced due to the pandemic and other difficult loses, she wanted to start something that would bring hope back to residents.
“I make between two meals and 20 meals a week, serving between one in five or six families that are nominated by the Tega Cay community. And my post simply says, ‘if you need a pick me up, no questions asked.’, says Wong.
Wong has provided 200 meals to families, single moms, seniors and anyone in need of support. She says that at some point everyone needs a little support and a helping hand from the community.
“It’s an awesome community that believes in other people — in fact I’ve had people come over and help me with meals, I’ve actually had a neighbor that donated 150 roses and we donated those to women out here that we helped in the past,” says Wong.
In feeding the community Judy has made a new friends. Just turning 88-years-old, Nora Harris or “Snooks” says her health has been on the decline. Neighbors like Judy and Catherine Woods have stepped in to make sure she’s fed and taken care of.
“Oh yes, they were just so good to do that for you and it’s nutritious food and she just does it for her own pleasure,” says Harris.
A former neighbor Catherine Woods says it’s a community’s responsibility to lift each other up.
“We all need to take a moment and reflects and check on our neighbors, check on your friends…. It takes so little time to just go to check on somebody and to see what she can do to help in it I mean it doesn’t just help them, it helps you,” says Woods.
Wong says, “…There are people out there who need our help and just need to understand that somebody’s there who cares.”
In the video above, CN2’s Rachel Richardson is speaking with the woman responsible for the community blessings.

The bridge over I-77 at Gold Hill Road will close next month, as part of ongoing traffic improvements there.
The City of Tega Cay issued a news alert on Wednesday. According to the alert, the bridge will close from midnight on Aug. 20 to 5 a.m. on Aug. 23. The interstate on and off ramps will remain open during the weekend closure.
The South Carolina Department of Transportation awarded the construction contract at Gold Hill to Boggs Construction. Improvements will create the state’s first diverging diamond interchange. A reduction of left turns will, traffic planners say, reduce congestion at what can be a heavy traffic area. Particularly during the weekday evening rush as commuters come back into York County from Charlotte.
Pennies for Progress, the county cent sales tax program that funds road work, lists the interchange as a $12.5 million project set to wrap up this year. Voters approved the project as part of a larger referendum in 2011.
The Gold Hill interchange improvement runs along Gold Hill from Cassandra Court to Wilson Business Parkway and Bromley Park Drive. It also includes ramps on and off of the interstate in both directions.
The Gold Hill work comes as part of an unprecedented list of I-77 road upgrades in York County. There’s ongoing work to improve the exit 85 interchange between Baxter and Kingsley in Fort Mill. Almost $75 million in state money will go to that interchange and the one at exit 83 in Rock Hill. There’s a new Rock Hill interchange coming to serve the planned Carolina Panthers headquarters.
The most recent work to gain public attention was the resurfacing of I-77 southbound lanes over the Catawba River in May. That bridge work slowed and rerouted traffic for weeks. Similar work will follow, though it hasn’t been announced when, to resurface the northbound lanes.
There aren’t many alternate routes nearby Gold Hill Road that cross the interstate. The nearest interchanges are at S.C. 160 to the south and Carowinds to the north. Another option to cross the interstate is Coltharp Road.
