Gutter Flashing

Gutter flashing is a waterproofing material that is installed just beneath the roof line inside the gutter.  This material is important because it stops water from seeping into your home.  Because flashing is bent at an angle, it diverts the water into the gutter and keeps the fascia dry.  Some contractors cut costs and are not installing gutter flashing on their projects.  Although their price may be less due to this shortcut, your home has an elevated risk of water intrusion if flashing was not installed.  Midwest Gutter & Siding uses gutter flashing on all of its projects whenever possible.  It is important to us that your home has the very best protection from water intrusion. Let us help with your exterior home projects. Call Dan at 763-550-1685 for a no obligation consultation or find us on the web at

Gutter protection systems by Midwest Gutter and Siding, Inc.

Spring and fall are the perfect time to add leaf guard gutter- protection systems to your home.  Springtime is especially hard on gutters and down spouts because seed pods rain down on your roof and get trapped in your gutters and down spouts.  Leaf protection systems provide the extra protection your gutters and down spouts need to be prepared for the Minnesota rainy season.   When gutters and downspouts become clogged, water runs over your gutters and has the risk of seeping into your basement and crawl spaces causing mold and serious damage to your home.   Prevent water damage to your home by having Midwest Gutter and Siding install state of the art gutter protection systems to your home.  Our trained specialist will be happy assess your project and make recommendations  on what types of gutter protection will work best on your home and  show you samples of all of our leaf guard protection systems.
