Professional Gutter Installation & Repair
We install pre-finished, seamless aluminum gutters that are made on site. Properly installed gutters are downspouts are necessary to control rain water, which in turn helps control erosion. Erosion is one of the leading causes of foundation problems. Regardless of your home’s size or shape, we have the experience to do the job right!
Seamless gutters start out as a roll or coil. We start every installation by taking detailed measurements of all eaves, so that we can make each section the exact length of the fascia. Once cut, the gutters are attached to the fascia using hidden hangers with zinc screws. This is in contrast to the old spike and ferrel instllations, where the gutters have a tendency to pull away from the fascia and sag under the weight of water or debris. The ends are capped with pre-formed end caps and sealed. All sections are joined at corners with pre-formed mitres that are both sealed and screwed. Downspouts are placed where needed to relieve water and strapped to the brick for stability. Diverters and valley shields are then placed where needed to route water into the gutters and keep it from overshooting the gutters at valleys.
Seamless Gutters are Available in Colors and Styles Designed to Complement Your Home
Styles: Accentuate the architecture of your home by choosing from various styles, sizes and colors of seamless gutters and downspouts. We offer the following:
5” K-Style O.G. : This is the most common style and size for residential homes and is what is included in our quote, unless otherwise stated.
6” K-Style O.G.: This is used on steep roofs where water can “skip” over the gutter or where 5″ gutters can’t handle the amount of water that needs to be moved due to lack of downspout locations, such as around “C” shape back patios.
6” Half-Round: Brings back the classic look of yesteryear. Designed for all rainfall rates and roof ridge-to-eave distances. The round downspouts are also useable with the 5” and 6” K-Style O.G. gutters.
Colors: 30 baked on low-marring polyester colors (over aluminum) as well as Galvalume Plus and copper with complement the color scheme of your home.
