Vinyl – easy to install but require many seams and become brittle over time.
Seamless Aluminum – seamless aluminum gutters are custom-made on site. These are the most popular gutters, and they only have seams at the corners. Slightly higher upfront cost but less seams mean fewer leaks and less maintenance over time.
Copper gutters – won’t mold, mildew or rust. They require welding at seams. Copper ionizes and changes color over time. They are also 2x+ the cost of aluminum gutters. Usually installed in conjunction with copper roofs Steel
Without gutters (or if your gutters are clogged) rainwater can accumulate in pools around your home’s walls and foundation. This can result in erosion and cracks in the foundation or flooding of your basement.
How Often Should Gutters be ReplacedJosef Stevens2022-09-20T00:54:42-04:00
We offer a lifetime guarantee on all of our gutters, so you should not have to replace them again. Gutters should last you a long time. The only maintenance gutters will need is cleaning. The frequency of cleaning depends on your location (i.e. if a tree is over your home)
Traditional gutters are manufactured off-site, cut to length, and then pieced together. The many seams resulting from piecing prefabricated gutter parts together weaken the system and creates more opportunities for leaks. Seamless gutters are made on-site at your home using a specialized gutter machine that fabricates gutters to the exact length needed. While they are slightly more expensive initially, homeowners save money in the long run because the gutters are customized for their home and traditionally require less maintenance and fewer repairs in the future.
Do I need 5 inch or 6 inch gutters?Josef Stevens2022-09-20T00:56:27-04:00
Size depends upon the amount and rate of water going into the gutter. Besides the location and weather where you live, the size and pitch of your roof will determine the type of gutter needed. The steeper the pitch of your roof, the more wind-driven rain it will take. This added incline also causes the water to come down more rapidly, requiring a 6 inch gutter.
