The standard for gutter systems is now to go seamless. Seamless gutters are water tight and do not rely on sealants every 8’ to prevent leaking. They have less seams, so they are a lot more resilient than the gutters of yesteryear. We can provide seamless gutters made from all sorts of materials, such as copper, aluminum or galvanized steel which has many color options. Available in 5” or 6” sizes.
FREQUENTLY ASKED GUTTER SYSTEM QUESTIONS:
Often, overflow is due to a blockage or an improper slope. Other times, if the gutters are not installed correctly or does not have a drip edge, water from the roof may just pass right over the gutter. The last reason a gutter may overflow is because you do not have enough downspouts to displace the water coming down.
Usually, you need a downspout every 40’, but it also depends on how much of the roof area you are draining. A bigger area may require more downspouts.
You should clean out your gutters at least twice a year.
The most common is aluminum, which can be made in a variety of colors. Be sure to ask a representative about what colors we have available.
Most gutter systems now attach using clips that hook to the front bevel of the gutter and are screwed through the fascia board. Older systems use long spikes and ferrules, which full out fascia boards when there is a lot of ice or snow.
The most efficient we have is what is called sureflow. It is an aluminum guard that had tiny holes over the surface that keeps debris from clogging the drain. It has a 20 year warranty, low profile look, and is mechanically attached with zip screws.
