Without this critical component, severe damage to your homes foundation may occur. The roof acts as a large collection plate for rain water, dumping large amounts of water into the soil right around your homes foundation. Gutters allow this water to be directed safely away from home. We install continuous aluminum gutters to ensure longevity and performance. Ask us about our Premium Installation Packages that make our service the best for your dollar. We have a vast array of colors available and in multiple styles.
In the “old days” gutters or eavestroughs as they were sometimes called were made from copper, steel or even wood. Today rain gutters are usually made of aluminum, copper, steel or vinyl. The vast majority being made of painted aluminum. They are attached with spikes or screws driven into the fascia board or by straps that attach under the bottom shingle. Gutters are attached at a slight slope to allow the runoff to drain. At the end of the gutter a downspout is attached to carry the water to the ground.
Seamless gutters are custom made on site with a forming machine to the exact length needed. Seamless gutters are usually made from aluminum or copper. Copper is several times more expensive than aluminum. Steel and vinyl gutters usually come in 10′ lengths. Handymen typically use steel and vinyl gutters. Seamless gutters leak far less often than sectional gutters and are virtually maintenance free.
Our Gutter Profiles
5″ Colonial Gutter is the most common and often best choice for residential applications. It has a wide bottom which allows for a large opening to the downpipe. This style has been available for over 40 years and is the most widely used, therefore can easily be matched for partial replacements, unlike some styles which have been discontinued. The shape gives this gutter the strongest configuration and the 5″ wide opening offers good accessibility for easy cleaning.
Fascia Gutters are generally used where the builder has not installed a fascia board over the sub-fascia. The greater depth allows the gutter to cover the 2 x 4″ subfascia and soffit J-Trim for a clean look. They can also be used on a larger fascia board if the style is preferred. Until recently, Fascia Gutters were limited by their narrow 2″ wide bottom that restricted the size of the downpipe outlet to a 2″ opening. New Profiles and improved extruding machines have introduced Fascia Gutters with a larger 2-5/8″ wide bottom which accommodates the larger available outlets. It is important to verify that your contractor is installing the latter as it is often not specified. There are well over 20 different profiles available that fall into the category of a Fascia Gutter, but there are only a few mainstream profiles that are widely chosen for their ease of fabrication, strength and aesthetic appeal.
Roofing, Gutter, Soffit and Siding Installers are usually trained in only what they install. This can lead to problems when integrating other components of your homes exterior weather barrier. All too often typical gutter installers will not take into account what impact their work can have on other parts of the home years down the road. Having gutter installers that are trained in Roofing, Vinyl Siding, Fiber Cement Siding, Windows and more, can prevent problems like this and many others.
The wood trim around the edges of your roof can become worn over time. Factors such as rain, sun, or even improper installation can cause these areas to deteriorate.
