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.

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.

Kristy Tolley mixes local and visitor perspectives in new Asheville guidebook
In her career as a Carolinas-based travel writer and editor for over 25 years, Kristy Tolley has worked with numerous freelancers who’ve penned guidebooks in Reedy Press’ 100 Things series. During that time, she’s also been what she calls “smitten with Asheville” and has visited every chance she’s gotten.“When I discovered there wasn’t a 100 Things book for Asheville, I was shocked,” Tolley says. “I contacted the publisher and submitted a proposal an...
In her career as a Carolinas-based travel writer and editor for over 25 years, Kristy Tolley has worked with numerous freelancers who’ve penned guidebooks in Reedy Press’ 100 Things series. During that time, she’s also been what she calls “smitten with Asheville” and has visited every chance she’s gotten.
“When I discovered there wasn’t a 100 Things book for Asheville, I was shocked,” Tolley says. “I contacted the publisher and submitted a proposal and marketing plan. They accepted it, and I got to work.”
Coming up with enough items for 100 Things to Do in Asheville Before You Die, however, wouldn’t be nearly as challenging as narrowing her list to that number. Tolley made sure to include popular iconic and historical attractions — Biltmore Estate and The Omni Grove Park Inn were musts — but also sought to highlight activities that people might not know about. Empyrean Arts, the Burton Street Community Peace Gardens and the Asheville Radio Museum are among the hidden gems that earned full-page write-ups.
Though there technically are 100 “things” in the book, a decent number of Tolley’s headings allow her to loop in multiple businesses and events. For example, item No. 88, “Hit the Books at a Bookstore” focuses on Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar and Bagatelle Books, while also featuring a “Tip” info box that points comics-minded readers to Asheville Comics, Morgan’s Comics and Pastimes.
“I believe you can find something new and interesting to do in Asheville every time you visit,” she says. “My hope is that my book is a good representation of that.”
Making those visits while researching and writing 100 Things to Do in Asheville Before You Die was no easy feat. The statewide Stay at Home order to curb the spread of COVID-19 went into effect exactly one week after Tolley signed her contract to write the book. By that point, she’d already created a sizable list based on her previous visits but wasn’t able to conduct new research trips for nearly three months. Instead, she pivoted to phone interviews and emails, but once pandemic-related restrictions were relaxed and more businesses reopened, she developed what she calls “a pretty regular road-trip cadence.”
“Those conversations cultivated so much hope and optimism in me,” Tolley says. “Talking with business owners and learning how they were adapting during the pandemic and supporting one another deepened my love for Asheville even more.”
While some people might scoff at a non-Ashevillean penning a guidebook to the city, Tolley — who lives just outside Charlotte in Tega Cay, S.C. — feels that her outsider status is more of an asset than a handicap. Her extensive research and in-person exploration of the area throughout her professional life gives her a distinct viewpoint. But she also consulted her Asheville-based friends and colleagues, along with the Explore Asheville Convention & Visitors Bureau team, to ensure that her list included their favorite activities and restaurants, thereby providing a strong mix of local and visitor perspectives. avl.mx/9ca

TEGA CAY, S.C. (WBTV) - A FedEx driver recently made his most important delivery of his career, and it wasn’t a package.
Rashad Conwell has been driving the same route in Tega Cay for the last six years. He says he has gotten to know the neighbors in Tega Cay well.
“The area is great. I know everybody by name. Most everybody by name. I know their kids their dogs, what kind of cars they drive,” Conwell said. “I’m very used to this area and they’re very used to me.”
On Tuesday, Conwell says he was delivering a package to a house on Kiwi Point, but he noticed the neighbor’s garage was on fire.
“My initial thought was get everybody out of the house because they’re always home, they’re always home,” Conwell said.
Conwell says he ran to the door and notified the woman who lived there that her garage was on fire and the flames were spreading quickly.
WBTV spoke with the woman who lives in the house. She did not want to do an interview about what happened, but said Conwell was the second person who notified her family that their house was on fire. She says she was grateful for everyone who spoke up.
Conwell says the woman, her grandson, and their dog ran out the front door with him. The woman’s husband escaped separately. No one was hurt.
“I’m glad I was able to be there at the right time,” Conwell said.
But Conwell’s day wasn’t over yet. He still had nearly an entire truck of packages to deliver but his truck was blocked by fire trucks.
“So we had to wheel the packages from my truck to another truck, then to two more trucks and I had to finish my route,” Conwell said.
Conwell says with the help of his FedEx team, they were able to get all packages delivered on time.
Tega Cay Fire Chief Glyn Hasty estimates there to be roughly $700,000 in damages from the house fire. The York County Deputy Fire Marshal says the cause of the fire is accidental.

A new $1.5 million-plus neighborhood is coming to Fort Mill. It may not be the last.

It isn’t just the extreme seller’s market that has seven-figure priced homes planned in a new Fort Mill subdivision. Developers say the high-end residential market is there, and will be for some time still.
“It’s this little enclave of luxury,” said Kristin Vining, who will sell the homes through The Vining Group at eXp Realty.
Vining can’t even lock in a contract yet but has a list of potential buyers after a couple of posts about Wisteria Meadows appeared on social media, she said Thursday.
“We haven’t even begun marketing yet,” she said.
There’s more than just pent-up demand for housing at play, she said, the community is changing.
York County typically sees one to three $1 million or more homes sales each month. Many are on Lake Wylie, while some are large properties in pockets of the county.
An entirely new subdivision of such high-end homes is rare, but not unprecedented.
“It’s really not widely known, sometimes there are sales in Fort Mill that are in line with what we’ve got going on,” she said.
Springfield, where a home recently sold for $1.9 million, was featured in Charlotte’s HomeArama luxury homebuilder’s event more than a decade ago.
The Ridge on Holbrook Road features 38 custom-built homes on 1-acre sites. It’s been under construction more than a year.
But the closest comparison to Wisteria Meadows, Vining said, is The Bramble. The seven-home community, adjacent to Baxter Village, had a top sale in 2018 of $1.8 million. A Bramble home would sell for at least $2 million today, Vining said.
And, communities with smaller lots and less customization than the highest-end neighborhoods like Masons Bend, still could push into the $1 million-plus range because of buyer demand, Vining said.
Residential construction demand hits nearly all price points in Fort Mill. The average home sales price in Fort Mill was about $405,000 in April, up 9% compared to last year, according to Canopy Realtor Association that tracks sales across the Charlotte metro. Tega Cay is up almost 25% in a year, to nearly $464,000.
The population of both Fort Mill and Tega Cay combined is roughly 33,500, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau data. It accounted for 200 new residential listings.
The 2019 median household income, according to the census, was more than $91,000 per year in Fort Mill, up 47% in 2015 when it was less than $62,000. About 63% of households made $75,000 or more per year in 2019 compared to less than 42% in 2015.
There also are more potential area buyers. The Carolina Panthers headquarters site coming to Rock Hill could bring high-earners. Fort Mill has a new hospital under construction. Several area corporate headquarters have come in recent years, with more high-paying jobs.
While there are more potential buyers in the $300,000 range than $1 million or more, Vining said, the rate of sales interest on the higher end matches the all-price-point trend.
“It’s kind of unprecedented,” she said. “The $1.5 million are going just as quick. There’s no inventory.”

TEGA CAY, S.C. (FOX 46) – The days can be pretty typical for Rashad Conwell, a word he uses to describe himself. “I’m so quiet and laid back,” Rashad said, who’s been driving for FedEx for eight years. “I just did want anybody else would do.”
But ask anyone in a neighborhood near Lake Wylie and they’d tell you that what Rashad did on Wednesday isn’t ordinary.
“I came to the house, knocked on the door, she thought I was delivering a package. I was like, ‘Mam your house is on fire,’” Rashad said.
He said he then made sure the woman and the child left the home that was quickly catching on fire. It only took a few minutes before the whole back end of the home was engulfed in flames.
“We didn’t grab shoes, we didn’t grab phones, we didn’t grab anything,” said John, who lives at the home.
John said, he was working above the garage that caught on fire. At first, he couldn’t smell anything, but then his wife came in yelling that the house was on fire.
“It was so hot. I have burns on my nose and on my face, I just ran down the side of the driveway to get away from it,” said John.
Rashad wasn’t the only person who stopped to help. Randy Mohammad was working nearby and saw that John’s house was on fire. It was all captured on their ring camera.
“Your garage is on fire!” yelled Randy.
Randy spoke with FOX 46 on the phone on Thursday and said, at first he didn’t realize what he was seeing. But when he realized what was happening, he had to run up and knock.
“If they didn’t knock on the door to tell us to get out, I would have been sitting in that room above the garage,” said John.
John and his wife have lost their home of 10 years, but they are grateful to both Randy and Rashad.
“That was the only thought, was to get the people out,” said Rashad.
Two total strangers, who decided to do the right thing, which often isn’t so easy or so typical at all.

TEGA CAY, S.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – After a year off due to COVID, the Carolina Show Ski Team put on a show for the Fourth of July in Tega Cay.
“My name is Ethan and this is how you spell my name E-T-H-A-N. I’m going to be on the Carolina Show Ski Team Fourth of July Ski show,” Ethan Johnson said.
And at 7-years-old, Johnons is the youngest member of the team. He performed in front of dozens of people as they started their fourth of July weekend at Windjammer Beach Park.
This weekend is one of his favorites of the year because he gets to do what he loves.
“Showing everybody how good I am at skiing,” Johnson said.
Folks clapped and cheered as the Carolina Show Ski team delivered countless performances.
“I like to describe it like a musical on water, so we have costumes and a theme and music, and then each part of the show is a different act that plays out the story of the show. And so, we have pyramids, barefooting, jumping, swivel, girls turning around and skiing backwards,” said Jennifer Priem, the show’s director.
Priem said the families love the show.
“This is something that you don’t see in this region. It’s pretty popular in Florida and up in the Midwest but we’re the only team around here and so families really like to come out and see all the things we can do,” she said.
And folks loved this 12-year-old ball of energy.
“Hey, I’m Reeves Parker and welcome back to FOX 46 News. I really enjoy it out here, it’s really a great time. I am a skip for the water ski show. “
He said he’s only been skiing for a week, and he loves it on top of giving people a good show.
“It’s definitely exciting because when you walk down here there’s a bunch of people cheering, and they want a high five from you. It made me feel awesome,” Parker said.
This is the team’s 25th year of performing.
