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 York for years.

We recommend that you call our office to schedule a gutter inspection, so our team can get a full understanding of the repairs that need completing.
Here are a few signs that you should be aware of that usually require gutter repairs in York, SC:
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 perfect choice’: Why York County could win a six-county bid for veteran cemetery

York County is on board with plans for a new veteran cemetery, in what may be the perfect place for it.
York County Council unanimously approved a resolution Monday night in support of the project. York County is one of six across South Carolina in contention for a new location funded and selected through state and federal veteran associations.
“I’m confident that they’ll see the value in York County,” said Melinda Woodhurst, county veterans affairs director.
Woodhurst got a call in July to see if York County could submit a potential location. She had 45 days to find a 60-acre site. Several potential locations fell through, she said. Minutes before she had a meeting to concede there were no options, another potential donor texted her.
Thomas and Giovanna Purcell have 105 acres in Sharon. They’d seen an online post in search of a cemetery location. Thomas is retired Army, having flown during wars in Vietnam and Korea. The Purcells offered up to 65 acres of their property at 5444 Bonner Horton Road, near the S.C. 49 and U.S. 322 intersection.
Woodhurst has been working since on an application due Oct. 14. She expects a decision on which site will get the cemetery by February.
“York County is not only the obvious choice for a veteran cemetery,” Woodhurst said. “It is the perfect choice.”
York County has about 28,000 veterans. The South Carolina counties that border it add about 14,000 more. Neighboring Gaston County in North Carolina has almost 14,000 veterans. Mecklenburg County adds more than 51,000 veterans.
Combined, York and its neighboring counties have more than 100,000 veterans.
“When you add the veteran population who could benefit from having one locally in York County, the numbers are striking,” Woodhurst said.
South Carolina has a state veteran cemetery in Anderson County. There are three national cemeteries at Fort Jackson, Florence and Beaufort.
There are six proposed locations for the new cemetery. Cherokee and Union counties each have a candidate. So do neighboring Bamburg, Orangeburg and Dorchester in the lower part of the state.
Statewide there are about 400,000 veterans. York County has more veterans than the other five potential site counties combined.
The 28,000 York County veterans combine for about $180 million in federal compensation to the area, Woodhurst said.
“They buy their homes, their kids go to school, and they spend their money in York County,” she said.
Woodhurst also points to future York County residents. York is one of the fastest growing counties in both Carolinas. There already is a veterans community outpatient clinic here, and more to come.
“We are already funded at the federal level to have a new clinic built, twice its size, which is an indication of the growing population in York County,” Woodhurst said.
With no cost to the county for a cemetery, council members were unanimous Monday in their project support.
“This is going to be one of those landmark features that we still have here in York County,” said Councilman William “Bump” Roddey.
Council thanked the family who donated land that’s been in that family more than 100 years. Also, council thanked the people who could most benefit from a veteran cemetery.
“This is an absolute honor to have something like this in our county,” said Councilman Tom Audette. “I think it’s a fantastic opportunity to honor our military and our veterans.”

A few seconds before the last play of a win that will surely echo around the city of York for a while, linebacker Javarus Guthrie wasn’t sure what to do.
It was fourth down. Ball over 70 yards away from the end zone. Cougars up over Catawba Ridge, 19-13. Less than a minute left in the game.
The York defense had played as well as it had all season on Friday night at home — intercepting Catawba Ridge quarterback and Class of 2024 overall No. 1 college prospect Jadyn Davis three times and holding Catawba Ridge to under 240 yards of total offense.
But it needed one more play.
Enter Guthrie: The sophomore, after looking at the sideline and receiving a last-second change-of-instruction, blitzed from the slot. He passed the right guard untouched, running so fast that he was never seen.
“As soon as he hiked the ball, I saw the tackle wasn’t looking at me, and I had a free angle,” Guthrie told The Herald with a big smile on his face. “Free angle right there. And I had to hit him.”
Guthrie’s game-ending hit served as the climactic end of York’s 19-13 win that head coach Dean Boyd said postgame was “program-changing.”
And then, the Cougars stormed the field. It was a joyous moment for a team that hasn’t yet notched a pretty win but has still, against odds and expectations, emerged as a formidable South Carolina 4A team this season.
And it has done that because it simply, somehow, finds ways to win.
“It’s hard to win,” Boyd told The Herald postgame, his voice strained hoarse and his hair looking a bit more gray than it did at kickoff. “And when you win, no matter how you win, you gotta celebrate those things. You can’t take them for granted. We didn’t play well tonight on offense. But we played well enough to win. And when you do that, you gotta celebrate it.”
Let’s be as clear as day: Nothing about Friday night in York was pretty.
The night started with a Catawba Ridge fumble on the game’s opening kickoff that was recovered by York. The Cougars, just 20 yards away from the end zone, lost yardage and turned the ball over on downs.
This would be an omen for the rest of the game. In the first half, specifically, York only managed 13 yards of total offense. Catawba Ridge had 90 yards — but not without giving up a pick-six (intercepted and scored by York’s Debo Hall) that gave York a 7-3 lead heading into the break.
“When we couldn’t move the ball offensively in the first half, I got really concerned,” Boyd said. “But our defense gave us the lead at halftime, and we were able to hang onto it.”
Admittedly, the second half was more eventful: On York’s first possession of the third quarter, quarterback Ayden Davis found a streaking wide receiver Jevon Long for a 71-yard touchdown. A missed extra point meant that York was up, 13-3.
And then, after two more York interceptions were not leveraged into points (one by Zy Brown and the other by Demaurion Stewart), Catawba Ridge put together back-to-back scoring drives in 50 seconds to tie the game up late in the fourth quarter.
The first? Catawba Ridge marched all the way down to the 1-yard line but had to settle for a field goal, one knocked in by Kohen Kozel to make it 13-6.
And the second? After a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, running back Tyler Jones punched in a touchdown from 12 yards out. 13-13.
But this is what York does — or at least has done in its now five-game, at times head-scratching win streak: After not having a good offensive drive all night, the Cougars melted three minutes off the clock and marched over 70 yards for the touchdown it needed.
The final run came via the legs of York’s sophomore offensive leader, its quarterback, Davis — via a 2-yard score. 19-13.
Another missed PAT kept the York sideline on edge. But then came another clutch series by the York defense that ended in a game-sealing sack that was heard ‘round town.
“Ayden Davis came through,” Boyd said postgame, remarking on the only offensive drive worth remembering on Friday night. “He made some big plays in that drive. We kept running weak-side on them. They found something there late, running weak on them. And our offensive line, who struggled all night long, finally tired those big boys out and went to work. And that was the key to the game.
“We could’ve really tucked our heads down after they scored. That could’ve been the ball game. And we didn’t let it. We kept fighting.”
The Cougars were led by Long, who ended with three catches for 98 yards and a touchdown. They also saw contributions from Davis, who ran for 42 yards and threw for 101 yards and one touchdown and one interception, and running backs Frank Thompson (29 yards) and RJ Glasgow (15 yards).
The Copperheads saw admirable performances from Tyler Jones, who took 19 carries for 79 yards, and receivers Trevor Testerman (53 receiving yards) and Jacobie Henderson (45 yards). Davis completed 16 of 34 passes for 127 yards.
Postgame, Guthrie, who was holding a sledgehammer in his hand as a reward for his big, game-sealing hit, was asked postgame what this win over a top-10 S.C. 4A team means about his team’s potential.
He flashed another smile: “We can go a long ways, man,” he said. “We can go a long ways. All we gotta do is keep showing up to practice every day. Play hard. Just play hard.”

A Large Land Donation May Move York County Forward in Its Efforts To Get a State Funded Veterans Cemetery

YORK COUNTY, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – The search is over for York County Veterans Affairs. A large donation coming in could be the game changer that was needed. York County is continuing its effort to find more ways to honor those who’ve served in the armed forces and now, thanks to one generous couple, a new opportunity for a veterans cemetery is more possible.
York County is competing against 45 other South Carolina counties to bring a state funded veterans cemetery to the area. The process began in June and leaders had 45 days to meet needed requirements, including a sizable amount of donated land. After being given an extension to continue the search leaders say something amazing happened.
Director of York County Veterans Affairs, Melinda Woodhurst, says, “Well we were literally ten minutes away from having to concede defeat and then based on a Facebook post from July the 23rd, a family saw this post on Facebook, called us and said, ‘We’d like to talk to you about donating some land’.”
One Sunday morning , this couple saw that social media post over breakfast and answered the call.
Donor Gia Purcell says, “It sounds a little crazy that you make that decision over coffee on a Sunday morning, but really the way we have been, when we bought this land, we were potentially gonna sell it or keep it for an investment — but like most things that are a big decision in our life, we pray about it and just ask that God lead us down the right road. Show us which way to go.”
Gia and her husband Tom just recently acquired 115 acres — they donated 60 of those acres for this project. Tom Purcell served in the army during the Vietnam era. He says he felt a responsibility to help.
Land donor Tom Purcell says, “When I was a teenager, I sorta stayed in and out of trouble and a judge told me, he said ‘boy, you need to join the army because you’re either gonna wind up in jail or dead’ and I said ‘yes sir’. So I wound up joining the army and it’s the best thing I ever did. They did much more for me, than I could ever do for them and I just felt like I needed to give something back.”
With more than 28,000 veterans in York County and the closest state funded veterans cemeteries in Asheville and Salisbury, North Carolina and Anderson, South Carolina — leaders say with so many local attractions veterans and families deserve a place closer to home.
“Having a way to honor our veterans in close proximity, will give us an opportunity to have those folks benefit from visiting both sites,” says Woodhurst.
In the video above, CN2’s Rachel Richardson is speaking with leaders who are applying for a local veterans cemetery and the couple who’s helping in the effort to make it happen.

Rock Hill’s newest park, which has drawn numerous visits from South Carolina lawmakers and significant donations from the Carolina Panthers, will open to the public this weekend.
Miracle Park, between Cherry Road and Eden Terrace, will have its grand opening Saturday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. York County residents will be able to experience the park’s inclusive playground, sensory wall and the Miracle Field.
Visitors are encouraged to bring a baseball glove to play on the field with Winthrop University athletes. Leitner Construction is giving away free hot dogs to the first 1,000 people at the park. There will be ice cream, Kona Ice and free cotton candy. Visitors also can enter a raffle with a chance to win a signed football from Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey.
The park, similar to the All Play Together effort in Fort Mill and Tega Cay, is a 15-acre site near Winthrop, designed for people of all physical and mental ability levels. Future phases of the park, which was a key selling point in Rock Hill’s presentation to earn its 2019 All-America City status, will include additional baseball fields, multipurpose fields and a retail store, city officials said.
Earlier this year, the Carolina Panthers and the (David) Tepper family, donated a combined total of $700,000 to help finish the city’s new park. The Carolina Panthers Charities and the NFL Foundation donated $200,000, and David and Nicole Tepper, with their foundation, followed with another $500,000 donation.
The public is invited to visit Miracle Park, at 1005 Eden Terrace, Saturday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Park officials will hold a brief program at 4:15 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. Parking will be at the Winthrop University Coliseum and shuttles will be available.
The park’s first program, Miracle League of Rock Hill, also will debut this weekend. The program, one of more than 240 Miracle Leagues across the country, will provide children and adults with mental and physical disabilities the opportunity to play baseball with volunteer “Buddies.” Registration for the league for ages 5 through adult is open online through Sept. 17.
The Miracle League of Rock Hill also looking for game-day volunteers, which will be required to participate in a training session. Upcoming sessions will be at the Boyd Hill Recreation Center on Sept. 20 at 6 p.m. and on Sept. 25 at 10 a.m. The league will officially open on Oct. 9 at 10 a.m.

YORK COUNTY, S.C. (WBTV) - Deputies say they seized 80 dogs, meth, illegal guns and other animals from a home in York, S.C. Monday morning.
In total, 80 dogs, two monkeys and a bird were the animals seized from the home. The 83 animals are now in the care of York County Animal Control.
After several months of investigation about poor living conditions and concerns of the health of the animals at a house off West Liberty Hill Road, deputies arrested 63-year-old David Andrew Barber, 63 and seized the animals. Deputies say the man was selling the dogs on the internet.
This is the home where the @YCSO_SC seized 80 dogs, two monkeys and a bird from what they say were "horrible living conditions." They say the man who lived here was selling the dogs on the internet. @WBTV_News Tonight at 4 & 5 -- I'll tell you where the animals are now. pic.twitter.com/j8XB8rUzmw— Paige Pauroso (@PaigePauroso) July 26, 2021
On Monday, York County deputies along with York County Animal Control officers responded to a home on West Liberty Hill Road after reports of dozens of animals in unhealthy living conditions.
Responding deputies and animal control officers located 80 small breed dogs, two monkeys, and one bird in very poor living conditions inside and outside of the home.
“The smell about knocked me over. There were feces everywhere. Flies everywhere,” said Trent Faris, the public information officer for the York County Sheriff’s office. “I can tell you I walked into the house. Very very poor living conditions. Not only for him but also the animals.”
After investigating, preliminary charges against Barber are multiple counts of ill treatment of animals, hoarding of animals, and potentially other charges are pending after veterinary examination of the animals.
In addition during the search, deputies discovered methamphetamine and seized multiple firearms.
“We are thankful for the team work between our deputies and animal control to make sure these animals get the care they need, and hopefully in the future a loving home.” said Sheriff Kevin Tolson.
The only circumstances where law enforcement can legally remove an animal is where exigent circumstances exist or by court order or search warrant. Exigent circumstances would be imminent danger of death or destruction of evidence.
All animals will be examined by a veterinarian for health conditions for future placement.
This investigation is ongoing and deputies say there’s no evidence of dogfighting or baiting.
