Gutter Installation FAQs

  • What is the life expectancy of a brand new gutter system?

The life expectancy of a gutter system takes into consideration the materials used during the gutter installation process, typical weather conditions of the home’s location, and the quality of craftsmanship. If the conditions are ideal, your average steel gutters will last for 20 years with regular maintenance, whereas a copper gutter system can last upwards of 100 years.

  • How do you know when you need new gutters?

Some telltale signs that it’s time for a new gutter installation are: cracking, seam stresses and bending, gutter rot, and the paint on your house is peeling. When your gutters are leaking, old, and in need of repair, it can affect the quality of the wood and siding on your home, which is another headache on its own.

Gutter Repair FAQs

  • Should I repair or replace my gutters?

It can be hard to tell whether or not your gutters need a simple repair, or a brand new installation. How old is your home? When was the roof last repaired? How often have your gutters been cleaned previously? If you’ve purchased a resale home and don’t know the maintenance history of the gutters and are concerned about their integrity, it’s perhaps time to consider a brand new gutter installation for peace of mind. 

  • How long does it take to replace gutters?

When it comes to a new gutter installation, it shouldn’t last any longer than two weeks. During this time your day to day will not be interrupted. A gutter installation is a non-invasive repair, and does not require installers to be in and out of your home. However, a gutter installation in the middle of winter may find itself halted or temporarily delayed in the event of unfavorable weather conditions such as hail, heavy rain, or snow.

  • Does my gutter warranty include a repair?

Our warranty is the more comprehensive gutter repair warranty in the industry. We pride ourselves on being leading industry experts in gutter installation and repair. We include a 3 year warranty on all parts and labor, with the option to purchase an extended warranty. Contact us for pricing, packages, and to learn about the gutter repair warranties we offer for your installations. 

Common Gutter Problems in Parksville

Common gutter installation problems in Parksville and Vancouver Island

If you live in Parksville, or anywhere on Vancouver Island, you know the temperament of the weather changes we’re apt to receive here. There are benefits of living in a paradise, but the rainy weather in the spring and the fall in Parksville can be disastrous to unfit gutters. Here are a few simple issues which can affect the health and longevity of your gutters:

Clogs Due to Debris

Gutters can get clogged easily, especially in cities with heavy rainfall during the fall. Why? When the leaves start falling, wind is blowing, and it’s wet outside, your gutters act as a magnet for debris. To avoid clogs in your gutters, you should make sure to invest in a mesh or screen when installing gutters. Preventative cleaning yearly is recommended to keep your gutters in shape, but if you live near trees and/or shrubbery, increasing the cleaning frequency of your gutters will extend their lifespan greatly. 

Holes and Leaks in Gutters

Leaks in gutters are any homeowner’s nightmare. These typically are solved with a specialized gutter sealant, which is best to call in the experts for. If you’re looking for a gutter repair service company in Parksville with experience in fixing holes and leaks in gutters, contact JB Gutterman today. We use the highest quality materials and water test our gutters to ensure you receive the highest quality of workmanship, and that your gutters will not experience any holes or leaks, no matter the weather. 

Improper Pitches and Slopes of Gutters

An improper pitch or slope in gutters is a byproduct of poor gutter installation. While you may be able to ‘bend’ the gutters temporarily as a fix, ultimately this is not the solution to the problem. We service the entire Parksville and mid-island area as the leading experts in gutter repair and installation, and are happy to inspect the pitch and slope of your gutters. Sometimes these can be repaired, and other times will require a new gutter installation. Contact us today for our expert recommendation.
