It’s all in the numbers.

I made my annual trek to St. Paul two weeks ago for the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament.  It is a journey that I enjoy….a time to relax, reflect, and recharge.  This year’s tournament was exceptional.  It was truly an “experience” that will last a life time.

According to the Minnesota State High School League, 19,893 people attended Friday night’s semi final session.  My son, Michael and I were a minuscule part of the largest crowd ever to attend a hockey game, at ANY level in the state of Minnesota.  The total attendance for the tournament was 123,575 people!  A substantial number by any means.

Numbers are also a critical key in the construction industry.  Homeowners are intrigued by square footage numbers, insulating value numbers, cost numbers, and time to construct numbers.  All of those numbers are an important aspect, however, as with many things in life, unforeseen numbers can also play an important role in a construction/remodeling project.

One inch of rain will deposit 623 gallons of water on a roof of only 1,000 square feet.  (Keep in mind that 1,000 square feet is a very small roof!)

The average cost to the homeowner that is related to water damage.  I admit, this number may be a little confusing, as it factors in many scenarios; no insurance coverage for some, and high deductibles for others.  The point is that water damage is an expensive claim.

The average cost of a seamless gutter project installed by ABC Seamless of Hutchinson in 2011.

It doesn’t take long to see the important numbers in the above comparison.  With water volume alone on a small roof of over 600 gallons, and an exposure of almost four thousand dollars, the investment of a little over a thousand dollars in new seamless gutters will pay significant dividends to you as a homeowner.  Don’t gamble with your single greatest investment….be prepared, install ABC Seamless Gutters and downspouts today!
