It was not uncommon at one time for homes to be built purposefully without gutters. Homes built with large overhangs from many decades ago typically were built with ornate rafter tails. Gutters were a part of this design. With changing weather events, increased recorded rainfalls, and volatility of the rainstorms many are experiencing today, not having gutters is no longer an option.
Presented here are just a few examples of pictures from damage caused by improper rain gutter solutions or choosing no gutter. Not having gutters can cause serious damage to your home. The garage door damaged pictured here is a direct result of not having a rain gutter system. Overtime, the water dripping from the roof splashes on the ground keeping the door wet eventually causing rot.
The most damaged areas of a home as a result of not having gutters are decks, garage doors, door frames, window frames, foundations, basements, sidewalks, driveways, landscape, siding, fascia and more.
The solution is seamless gutter installation. When installing gutters you have several options. Certainly, by installing aluminum seamless gutters of either 5″ or 6″ size, we can divert the water from your roof line to areas of your home where the water will not cause damage or dangerous ice patches in the winter.
Most homes have standard 5” gutters installed. However, in some cases it is necessary to install 6” oversized gutters, or on specific portions of a home.
Below is a way for you to determine whether you will need standard 5” gutters or the 6” oversized gutters.
Basic 5” Standard Gutter Qualifications:
- All gutter lengths under 40’ with at least 1 downspout
- Gutters over 40’ in length have should have 2 downspouts
- Gutters do not overflow on regular or normal rains
- No upper roofs gutters should be draining into lower 5″ gutters
Basic 6” Oversized Gutter Qualifications:
- Gutter lengths over 40’ that cannot have 2 downspouts
- Lower gutters that have upper gutters draining into them
