Why Seamless Gutters?
The purpose of guttering systems is to collect water (rain) from the roofing area and disperse the water away from your home. Properly configured downspouts (leaders, drain pipes) are very essential.
A faulty guttering system can contribute to damage to Soffit & Fascia, Shingles, Building Foundations, Driveways, Walkways, Landscaping.
Guttering systems require maintenance to insure protection for your home. Make sure your gutters are free from debris, leaves, granules from shingles and bird nests. The extreme exposure to nature can also cause sealant failures. Snow & Ice as well as thermal expansion can loosen fasteners and should be repaired immediately to prevent costly repairs.
(We always recommend a professional for maintaining your Guttering System)
For the average house, installation will be done in one day.
Each piece is measured individually, and the seamless gutter machine to create a continuous piece of gutter that is custom sized.
Hidden hangers are used to support the gutter. Hidden hangers interlock into the gutter for a cleaner look and which is then attached to the fascia board for superior strength.
All of our gutters are hung with #10 1 1/2″ zinc plated screws to make sure the gutters hold properly. We do not use nails, which have a tendency to become loose and pull away from the home. Nails also have more potential to damage your fascia during removal.
The last step is the installation of the downspouts. On most jobs the downspouts will be replaced just as they were, unless the homeowner asks for a change. In case of new construction we will talk to the contractor or homeowner to make sure they get the most effective downspout placement.
