Gutter helps protect your home from water damage. Without a gutter system, water will start to ruin the forms of a building, causing rot, water damage on sidings, windows, soffit’s, fascia boards, insulation drywall, and even interior walls and floors.. etc. Water will run until it finds dry. Believe it or not water will run uphill in some cases to find its dry place. Once a building starts to get wet, it will either start rotting or dry rot… then comes in carpenter ants and other insects. Before you know it your building is not only washing away, rotting away, but it will also be eaten away by pests.
We offer a 2 year labor warranty on the gutter system and install itself. Our material suppliers offer a life-time pro-rated warranty on the materials used in your new system.
*Please note we do not warranty mother nature*
However if you have an acute pitched roof, or metal sheet roofing, we recommend a gutter hanger type gutter guard system. Please see our gutter maintenance products and read about Gutter Sentry and Alu-rex. These two systems act as a continuous gutter hanger resulting in strength for the entire lengths of your new gutter system.
There is a wide variety of colors you can choose from to best suit your home. Depending on what material and profile you choose to work with the colors vary. Please contact us and let us know what you are thinking about. If the color is not available from our regular suppliers, we can usually source the material you are looking for.
Due to the expansion and contraction of the metal, the caulking seals will crack or break due to the metal moving due to temperature changes of the metal. This can happen from freezing, or on hot summer days. Unfortunately you will not know they are leaking until it rains.
First you need to consider where you live, what are your surroundings like and what type of environment the gutter is in.
These three options are fairly small and inexpensive ways to make your gutter stretch the extra life time.

Gutter is measured across the top of the gutter.For example if the gutter is a 5″, it’s then measured 5 inches across the top from the back of the gutter to the front of the lip. Total width.

Half-round gutter is round on the bottom, therefore copying nature more then the conventional square bottom. The water runs out of the half-round gutter with much more ease than it does in a square bottom. With square bottom gutter the water tends to sit in the bottom.
Because it’s a half circle, half-round gutter is actually stronger than conventional gutter. It does not fold over or bend as easily in snow and ice situations. In expansion and contraction half-round gutter does not buckle, unless the material is super thin, or the piece is too long.
