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.

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.

Jordon Willard, pastor of First Baptist Church in Weddington, N.C., will be nominated to serve as president of the 2023 North Carolina Pastors’ Conference (NCPC) at this year’s event, which is slated to occur in conjunction with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina’s (BSC) annual meeting Nov. 8-9 in Greensboro, N.C.
BSC first vice president Quintell Hill told the Biblical Recorder he plans to make the nomination, describing Willard as someone “gifted in unique ways” that will serve the state’s pastors well at this time.
“Jordon has a passion for people inside and outside the church, as well as for pastors,” Hill said. “His gift of preaching and writing helps him reach and teach the hearts of laypeople and the seasoned pastor. I believe Jordon is God’s man at the right time to lead North Carolina Baptists in this way!”
Willard, 33, recently became pastor at FBC Weddington. Prior to that, he served as pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Roanoke Rapids and Trinity Baptist Church in Tarboro. At each church Willard has led the congregations toward revitalization.
According to BSC financial records, FBC Weddington gave $16,767 through the Cooperative Program in 2020, along with $1,471 to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and $200 to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.
Willard served as director of discipleship at the North Roanoke Baptist Association from 2013-16 and as a member of the church strengthening team at the South Roanoke Baptist Association in 2018. He helped organize church strengthening and revitalization conferences in 2018 and 2019, featuring speakers such as well-known author and speaker Richard Blackaby, seminary president Danny Akin and preaching professor Jim Shaddix.
At Bethlehem and Trinity, Willard led the congregations to partner with pro-life agencies, including Pregnancy Support Center of Roanoke Rapids, Your Choice Pregnancy Resource Center in Rocky Mount and Christian Adoption Services.
“I am grateful for the incredible ministries of each gospel-preaching pastor of the churches that make up the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina,” Willard told the Recorder. “Knowing that they, too, need to be ministered to, I would gladly welcome the honor of serving them as NCPC president to provide a conference that encourages them and further equips them to be the gospel-centered, Great Commission-focused shepherds that God has called them to be.”
Willard is currently a member of the BSC board of directors, where he serves on the Convention Relations Special Committee and a study committee formed to review the state convention’s partnerships with its agencies and institutions. He has been involved with The Pastors’ Network of North Carolina and the Tarheel Leadership Network.
Willard is a three-time graduate at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, where he earned bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees, with research focused on creating a culture of disciple-making in the local church through expository preaching. He and his wife, Veronica, have two children, Karis and Josiah, as well as a child who passed away, Blessed Hope Willard.
NCPC officer elections are traditionally held two years in advance of the term. No other forthcoming nominations have been announced for 2023 NCPC president at this time.

Qualifying for the U.S. Olympic team in one event wasn’t good enough for University of Missouri alum Karissa Schweizer.
So she went out and did it a second time.
The six-time NCAA national champion finished second in Saturday’s women’s 10,000-meter run at the U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon, crossing the finish line in a time of 31 minutes, 16.52 seconds. She was only behind winner Emily Sisson, who finished in a meet-record time of 31:03.82, and will be joined in the event in Tokyo by third-placed Alicia Monson (31:18.55).
Schweizer prevailed among a massive field of 41 runners, moving up from third to second in the final lap. She had qualified in the women’s 5,000 meters already on Monday, also finishing second in that race.
KASSANAVOID NARROWLY MISSES OUT: Former Kansas State and Lawson thrower Janee’ Kassanavoid finished just outside the cutoff for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team in the women’s hammer throw.
Kassanavoid finished fourth with a best throw of 73.45 meters (240 feet, 11 inches), a spot and a mere 4 inches short of the final roster slot occupied by Gwendolyn Berry (73.5 meters, 241 feet, 2 inches). Kassanavoid got her best mark on her second throw, scratched her next two and didn’t reach the 240-foot threshold for her final two tosses.
She entered the meet with the fifth-best throw in the world this year with a mark of 75.5 meters (247 feet, 7 inches) last month at a meet in Tuscon, Arizona.
An overturned call proved costly for the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night at Dodger Stadium.
Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Cody Bellinger hit a walk-off homer with two outs in the ninth inning off right-hander Keegan Thompson to hand the Cubs a 3-2 loss.
Jason Heyward appeared to put the Cubs ahead in the seventh when he bested Dodgers lefty Garrett Cleavinger for a solo homer that snuck inside the left-field foul pole. The third-base umpire immediately signaled a home run, but after a conference among the umps it was ruled a foul ball on the field. Cubs manager David Ross challenged the decision, but the call stood after a 1 minute, 50 second replay review to keep the game tied 2-2.
Right-hander Alec Mills skirted around trouble throughout his four-inning start. The Dodgers’ first three hitters of the game reached, quickly giving them a 2-0 lead. They would be the only runs Mills allowed despite surrendering eight hits and issuing two walks.
Willson Contreras’ arm twice provided a lift for Mills. The catcher picked off Chris Taylor at third base in the second inning and again got Taylor at third in the fourth. The latter saved a run. Dodgers starter Julio Urías connected on the next pitch from Mills.
Anthony Rizzo’s 10th homer of the season to lead off the fourth cut the Dodgers’ lead in half. Ian Happ’s pinch-hit double in the fifth tied the game. With his three hits Saturday, Heyward is 7 for 9 this series.
Report: Ravens work out former Maryland DL Darius Kilgo

NFL free agency has slowed down with teams starting OTA\'s as by far the biggest story related to player movement is the potential trade of Julio Jones. There are still plenty of unsigned players on the market though, and teams will be doing their homework now before inevitably having to dive into free agency during the summer once players suffer injuries during training camp.
Sometimes at this point in the calendar, that homework only involves visits or workouts with players. Those can pay dividends long term though. The Baltimore Ravens reportedly brought in an interesting player with local ties on Tuesday.
According to NFL Network\'s Tom Pelissero, Baltimore worked out former Maryland defensive lineman Darius Kilgo, who has previously played in 29 total regular-season games for the Denver Broncos and Tennessee Titans.
Kilgo, who started 36 games for Maryland between 2011 and 2014, has had additional stints with the New England Patriots, Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans but did not play in a regular-season game for those teams. The Weddington, N.C., native has never been a pass-rusher, but his ability to plug holes against the run has helped him stick around in the NFL. Despite ranking well defensively overall last season, the Ravens were just 26th in yards per carry allowed at 4.6 — so the run defense could use some help.
Baltimore used its second first-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft on defense, but that went toward the pass rush with Penn State\'s Odafe Oweh. While Oweh played as a 4-3 defensive end with the Nittany Lions, he will now transition to a 3-4 outside linebacker role on the edge. Since the Ravens did not select a defensive tackle in the draft, it makes some sense that they could look to add depth options on the periphery this summer.
Oweh recently said that he thinks he has settled in nicely at a new position, which is a very real change since he could be playing less in a 3-point stance than in the past.
"I\'m obviously relatively new, but it\'s just really encouraging because I\'ve been playing for five years but I\'m making plays out there on an NFL team, so it feels good," Oweh said. "And I feel like I came from a 4-3 defense and I\'m playing outside linebacker, so I\'m picking it up pretty well and it\'s making me feel good about my versatility and what I can do and I\'m just seeping in more and more information and I\'m getting it right now. So it\'s a good start."

14th Carolinas Girls’ 15 and Under Championship
Final Round Recap
WHISPERING PINES, N.C. (July 13, 2021) -- Final round results from the 14th Carolinas Girls’ 15 and Under Championship at the Country Club of Whispering Pines in Whispering Pines, N.C., July 12-13, 2021. The championship division competed at 5,701 yards (36-36--72). The junior division competed at 5,342 yards (36-36--72). The sub-junior division competed at 2,474 yards (36).
Bridget Wilkie of Bluffton, S.C. continued her dominant play on Tuesday and won the Carolinas Girls’ 15 and Under championship division with an impressive score of 1-over-par, 145 total for the tournament. Mary Elizabeth Harrison of Cary, N.C. took home gold in the junior division after sinking seven pars and a pair of birdies on her final round. Audrey Liu of Weddington, N.C. receives champion honors in the sub-junior division after strengthening it out another day.
“[Being named the champion] feels amazing. I am really happy to be here,” Wilkie said following her round on Tuesday.
In the latter half of Wilkies first round on Monday she struck a chord dropping birdies and pars in from everywhere. Entering the final round on Wednesday, she was even-par and four strokes ahead of her nearest competitor.
Although Wilkie could not escape the first hole bogey-free, she managed to piece together an impeccable front-nine score of 1-over-par, 37. Wilkies dominance on her outward nine resonates with her seasonal statistics that show she is averaging 38.2 strokes on her first nine holes of competition. She played the 10 hardest handicapped holes at Country Club of Whispering Pines at only 1-over-par. She powered through the course knowing that the field was not going to hand her a victory.
“I was steady, I hit a lot of greens today,” the newly minted champion said. “Nothing really dropped but I had a bunch of two-putts.”
The No.57 ranked Carolinas Girl golfer would prove her worthiness of the title on her inward nine. After stumbling and making a double-bogey on the par-3, No. 12; which ironically is handicapped as the easiest hole at Country Club of Whispering Pines, Wilkie had at this point in the tournament a 2-stroke margin separating her from second place finisher, Grace Ridenour of Raleigh, N.C.
“Well I knew the girls behind me were going to be chasing, so my goal was to go as low as possible and not really focus on everyone else and to just stay in the moment.”
Ridenour battled back from a 5-over-par, 77 from the day prior and signed off on a 1-over-par, 73 on Tuesday. Fellow Raleigh, N.C. native, Katherine Brictson, finished in sole possession of third place with a collective score of 10-over-par, 154 total.
The wire-to-wire champion would complete her inward nine with massive birdies on Nos. 13 and 16 to regain a comfortable margin and claim the title of 14th Carolinas Girl’s 15 and Under Champion.
The Carolinas Golf Association would like to extend our appreciation to the members and staff at the Country Club of Whispering Pines, especially General Manager JP Longueil, Events Director Claudia Dooley and Course Superintendent Mike Rose.
