When it comes to your gutter system, finding the best solution begins with understanding how the parts of a complete seamless rain gutter system help protect your home against rain water runoff. This page is here to help you learn more about the purpose of your rain gutter system and get the best solution. The main purpose of a rain gutter is to get the water from the roof to the ground away from the home where it can drain into the ground. Controlling the flow of rain runoff is key in preventing water stains, rot, mildew, mold, warping, foundation cracks, and other damages from water.
Getting the right gutter solution for your home begins with understanding how a properly selected gutter system will go a long way in handling rain water runoff effectively. The standard in the industry for your home is a seamless standard 5 inch or oversized 6 inch gutter system. You can learn more in the Seamless Gutter section below.
Protecting your investment is as important as selecting the right product for your home. When your gutter system clogs, it is no longer performing the job it was designed to handle. Your best solutions to maintaining a functional gutter are to have them cleaned or to protect them with a leaf guard. Learn more in the Gutter Guards and Gutter Cleaning sections below.
There are circumstances where choosing the right product and maintenance are falling short of providing a complete protection of your home. Winter ice and snow can be a big source of gutter frustrations and the biggest reason to consider using heat cable. If water needs to be directed to a specific shedding field, it may be necessary to have underground drainage installed.
Gutter guards are covers installed on a gutter system to provide many benefits to your home gutter system. We supply a complete gutter guard system that keeps the gutters clear of debris, pests and clogs as well as, strengthens and protects the gutter. Even if your house isn’t surrounded by trees or trees are at a great distance from your home, your gutters can still fill up with tree debris or roof grit. Animals, insects or other pests can make nests, homes or infestations in gutters. Guards can keep you off the ladder and your gutter systems working well all year long. Not only that, they strengthen your gutters, providing added protection against the winter snow and ice. Gutters filled with snow and ice are more likely to experience winter-related damage than gutters with guards. With guards keeping your gutters clean, your gutter system can last years longer than a system that is constantly clogging.
Seamless gutters are formed on the job site and measured to fit your home. Most gutters are now supplied as seamless since they enable a quicker installation and better performance. Gutter sections of 10 to 20 feet can be purchased from big box stores, but they are typically sold for the purpose of repairing damaged sections. Not only does repairing a gutter compromise the quality of the gutter system, we have found it to be more expensive than replacing the whole gutter due to time and extra parts needed.
Without gutters, the risk of your home being damaged is increased every time it rains. Rainwater can damage your foundation, fascia, siding, and much more. Seamless gutters are our most commonly installed gutter due to their affordability, long life and ability to handle large rainfalls. They cover any job with the choice of 5” and 6”.
Specialty gutters are mostly installed for aesthetic purposes, although some do last much longer than aluminum. We offer 5” or 6” half-round aluminum, half-round galvanized, half-round galvalume, and half-round or K-style copper. Half-round gutters offer a lower profile than the traditional K Style. Galvanized is a steel substrate coated in zinc and offers a very glossy appearance. Galvalume is also a steel substrate coated in an aluminum-zinc hybrid coating and offers a more rustic, silver metallic aesthetic used in more modern architecture designs. Copper gutters are a shiny gold-looking gutter system. They eventually become patinated and turn a dark brown or green color that looks antiquated and homeowners love. Additionally, properly maintained Galvalume and Copper can last 80+ years.
Gutter cleaning keeps your gutters free of debris and working properly. Throughout the seasons and weather, your gutters can collect various kinds of debris that cause it to clog, even when you have new gutters. When your gutter system gets clogged, the gutter can overflow and leak into your home or foundation causing some serious damage. When we clean gutters, the entire interior of your gutter system and downspout is cleaned. We take apart the elbows and downspouts to get every last bit of gunk and debris out so your gutters can work to their full capacity. We recommend two to four cleanings a year. We have a gutter maintenance cleaning service available. Getting on our maintenance schedule is a guarantee to receive a cleaning and when used with a new gutter install, extends the warranty of your gutter system.
When you deal with a company that does what they say they will do, when they say they will do it for the price that they agreed to, you keep them around.
I have been VERY impressed with the professionalism and competence of everyone associated with this experience. The installation guys were especially terrific (and patient with me!!) in easily resolving an unforeseen problem.
This company was exceptional. They were punctual, professional, courteous, efficient and cleaned up after they were finished. I am really very happy with their service and intend to use them on a yearly basis.
